Baby Fever is hitting the Duggar family hard right now as there are three babies on the way. One of the expectant couples finally revealed the gender of their baby, and the entire Duggar family couldn’t be happier about it. Though there are still two more babies on the way that we don’t know about yet, this child will follow along the same line as most of its cousins ― and fans couldn’t be more excited to meet the new addition to the famous family!
It’s a Boy
On Saturday, Feb. 3, Joseph and Kendra Duggar held a party for their friends and family where they revealed the gender of their child in an interesting way. Joseph’s older brother John-David, an Arkansas constable and part-time Tontitown police officer trained in guns, shot at a Tannerite target placed well behind the couple. The target exploded with blue powder that meant that Joseph and Kendra are expecting a boy.
Joe and Kendra were thrilled to know that they have a son on the way. “Our minds are already racing toward all the future memories to be made with this little guy! Most of all, we are already asking God to bless him and help us grow him into a loving and faithful follower of Christ,” they wrote on the Duggar family website.
The Duggar patriarch and matriarch Jim Bob and Michelle had a message for their son who is soon to be a dad. “We are so excited for Joe and Kendra! We know they will be great parents and this little one will be such a blessing! We are thankful for all of our precious grandchildren,” they wrote.
Babies on the Way
Of Jim Bob and Michelle’s 19 children, six are married and one is currently courting. They have nine grandchildren, seven of whom are boys. Joseph’s son will be their eighth grandson. It may be too early to know the gender of Jinger’s child, but Joy-Anna is set to give birth within the next few weeks. She has kept her due date a secret as critics of the Duggars believe she got pregnant before she was married. She also has yet to reveal the gender of her baby.
In a promotional video for the upcoming season of Counting On, Joy-Anna was filmed skiing and falling down a snowy hill while she was pregnant with her child which had some fans feeling like she was endangering her little one. However, Joy seems healthy, and she is asking for gifts for her child on an Amazon baby registry. “Due to the size of our house, smaller items and gift cards would be much appreciated,” she wrote on the registry.
Joe and Kendra became engaged at Joy-Anna’s May 2017 wedding. They were married in September, and they announced their pregnancy over the holidays.
Joe’s siblings had been speculating that they would have a girl for their first child according to Jessa. “Almost everybody was guessing girl. My guess all along has been girl for y’all,” she said in a congratulatory video for the soon-to-parents. She said that she changed her guess less than 30 minutes before the “kaboom” gender reveal because “sometimes the multitudes are wrong.” Jessa and her husband Ben Seewald said that they would love to pass down the clothing from their two sons to the expectant parents.
Counting On premieres on TLC on Monday, Feb. 26. Do you think that Jinger and Joy-Anna will also be having little boys? Let us know in the comments and SHARE this story!
