Anna Duggar Reveals Sex of Her Baby #6 with a Touching Family Video

In April, Anna Duggar and her husband announced that they were expecting a sixth child together! On Thursday, the couple posted a video on social media revealing the child’s gender.

Anna, 30, and Josh Duggar, 31, took to Instagram to share an adorable video of the moment they learned the sex of their baby. The pair made the announcement by including their children.

HOW THE DUGGAR'S REVEALED THEIR 6TH CHILD'S GENDER

For this occasion, a gender reveal cake was used. One of their children was seen pouring water tentatively into the cake until it spewed a pink substance that signified they were having a baby girl.

The reality star’s children could be seen celebrating the revelation with one child confessing that she thought her next sibling would be a boy. In the caption of the post, Anna shared that the little girl’s due date was sometime in the fall.

WHERE THE CAKE GENDER REVEAL TRADITION BEGAN

She also explained that she and her husband started using cakes to announce their children’s genders after his late grandmother Mary Duggar suggested it. The family sadly lost Mary, 78, on June 9 after she accidentally drowned in a swimming pool

The 19 Kids and Counting star shared that she was reminded of the tradition after her sister Jessa Duggar sent her an article that mentioned their first gender reveal. Anna and her husband share Mackynzie, 9; Michael, 7; Marcus, 5; Meredith, 3; and Mason, 2.

IT STARTED WITH THEIR FIRST CHILD

The first gender reveal cake was baked 10 years ago by Cake Boss star Buddy Valastro. The parents who were expecting Mackynzie at the time got to cut their cake with Meredith Vieira in New York City on the Today show.

Anna ended her lengthy caption by writing

“With Grandma’s passing last week, this 6th gender reveal is a reminder of her love — I’m so glad we were able to share the news of our third little girl with Great-Grandma before she went to be with Jesus! #littleduggars.”

THE COUPLE'S PAST UPS AND DOWNS

The Counting On stars were married in September 2008. Over the past 10 years, the couple has had some troubles in their marriage.

IT’S A... 🥁 This is the 6th gender reveal for our little family and it always so exciting! Each child God has given us is unique and special — we all look forward to the arrival of our daughter / sister this fall! 🎀🍁🍂 This morning Jessa sent over an article which mentioned our first gender reveal with Mackynzie on the Today Show as something that helped popularize gender reveal cakes 10 years ago. 🍰 (while it’s hard to believe it’s been that long, it also reminded us to get this video posted! 🙈) A little behind the scenes story: When I was expecting Kynzie, Grandma Duggar excitedly told me of a “new trend” that featured baking a gender reveal cake. Grandma asked if she and Amy could bake one for us?!?! Josh and I loved the idea and that was our plan...until our producers heard about the idea and it grew quite a bit! Buddy the Cake Boss ended up baking the first gender reveal cake for us! We were thrilled to cut into our pink cake with Meredith Vieira in NYC. All that to say, Grandma was the one who sparked this special tradition for our family and it sounds like a lot of other families have enjoyed the idea over the years as well! With Grandma’s passing last week, this 6th gender reveal is a reminder of her love — I’m so glad we were able to share the news of our third little girl with Great-Grandma before she went to be with Jesus! #littleduggars

In 2015, they were hit with a cheating scandal and Josh had to extend his stay at a faith-based rehabilitation center. The couple then went into marriage counseling

In March 2017, they announced that they were expecting their fifth child

ANNA ANNOUNCED HER 6TH PREGNANCY WITH 2 VIDEOS

Anna’s April announcement of their pregnancy read: 

“We are so excited to announce that we are expecting a new little one! As we watch our children grow and thrive — we look forward to baby six joining us this fall! #littleduggars.”

The two clips showed the family laying out letters that spelled: “New baby coming this fall.”
