"Counting On" stars Joseph Duggar and his wife, Kendra, revealed that their family is soon expanding, with a third baby on the way.

Joseph Duggar, 25, and Kendra, 22, are parents to two-year-old son Garrett David and Addison Renee, who is nine and a half months old. They said in a statement: 

"Baby #3 is on the way!" 


Kendra and Joseph revealed their delightful news on August 19, more than nine months after Kendra gave birth to Addison in November 2019.

After the pair tied the knot in Siloam Springs in September 2017, they welcomed Garret in June 2018.

The couple said they are excited to break the news of the pregnancy to their children. They look forward to their reactions.

The couple's third child will be the latest family member of the Duggar clan, known for having many children. Joseph is the seventh of the 19 children of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.

Now that he and Kendra will become a family of five, Joseph earlier said it was his dream to have a wife and to raise a beautiful family. 

Joy-Anna is due to give birth in August.


Aside from Joseph, his sister, Joy-Anna Duggar, 22, is pregnant with her second child with 26 -year-old husband, Austin Forsyth.

In March, Joy-Anna revealed she and Forsyth are expecting their child, after a heartbreaking miscarriage in June 2019. The couple announced their wonderful news on Instagram.

With their new bundle of joy, Austin said he is thankful that his wife and their baby are in a healthy condition.


Austin and his wife are now moving on to the happier chapter of their lives. Joy-Anna is due to give birth in August.

After the news, their fans are excited to meet their child. They sent congratulatory messages to the couple for their third baby on the way.

The couple has been married for three years since 2017. In 2018, they welcomed Gideon, who was born through an emergency C-section.

The Duggar family is known for giving birth at home, but Joy-Anna recently said she would skip the family tradition. 

After her difficult birth with Gideon, Joy-Anna said she would give birth in the hospital. She recently posted a video of her preparations for her hospital birth.
