The Duggar family just keeps on growing. Following their wedding in September, Joseph and Kendra Duggar just confirmed they are pregnant with their first child together. Well, that certainly didn't take long.
“During this season that we are celebrating the birth of Christ, we are so excited to share with you that we are expecting the gift of a child ourselves!” the stars of Counting On told Us Weekly in an interview. “Wow, it’s so exciting!!! We’ve both always loved children and seen them as a real blessing from God. It’s so surreal to think of being parents and having our own little one. We cannot wait to see this new baby!”
The Duggar family also posted a teaser image on their Instagram account, with the caption, "Our family has some big news! Guess who is having a baby?"
Joseph, 22, and Kendra, 19, wed back in early September in an intimate ceremony surrounded by family and friends at the First Baptist Church in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. The marriage was officiated by Kendra's father, who is a pastor.
Joseph and Kendra met through their church community a few years ago and confirmed in March that they were courting. Joseph finally popped the question in May, during his sister Joy-Anna and brother-in-law Austin Forsyth's wedding.
“We are so grateful for how the Lord brought us together,” the couple wrote in a statement at the time.
Joseph and Kendra spent their honeymoon in Greece. “We’re so excited to be newlyweds now,” Joseph gushed in a video message shared on the family’s blog in October. “We just want to thank all the fans for all your support and your encouragement to us. Y’all mean a lot.”
The two have yet to announce the sex of the baby or when Kendra is due.
