“We couldn’t be happier to share with the world that our family is growing by one this Fall,” the couple told Us in a statement on Friday, April 26. “We continually stand amazed by God’s love, redemption, grace and blessings in our lives. Our entire little family is ecstatic!”
The pair, who already share Mackynzie, 9, Michael, 7, Marcus, 5, Meredith, 3, and Mason, 19 months, tied the knot in September 2008.
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar expressed their excitement for the couple, writing, “We are so happy for Josh & Anna, expecting their 6th child and our 16th grandchild! Each child is a blessing from God! Anna is one of the most amazing women in the world, she is a Proverbs 31 woman! Anna & Josh are good parents and it is going to be neat to see what God does with each one of their children’s lives. Mackynzie, Michael, Marcus, Meredith and Mason are so excited to have a little sibling on the way! God is at work in their sweet little family! He has blessed them with another child! What a gift! The best days for their family are still ahead!”
They celebrated their 10-year engagement anniversary in July 2018 with a sweet PDA pic. “June was an exciting month for our family,” Anna captioned an Instagram spread at the time. “Marcus, Michael and I are . . . officially a year older + Josh and I celebrated our 10 year engagement anniversary!”
She added: “The past 10 years have been a wonderful adventure. So thankful for God’s redeeming grace and His blessings to us along the way, especially our 5 M’s!”
Anna and Josh aren’t the only Duggar family members expecting a new addition this year. Kendra Duggar (née Caldwell) is pregnant with her and Joe Duggar‘s second child, while Jessa Seewald (née Duggar) announced in January that she and her husband, Ben Seewald, are expecting their third.
“We are overjoyed that God has blessed us with a baby, due late this Spring!” Jessa told Us at the time. “From the day we found out we were expecting, we both guessed boy, and if our predictions are right then we already have a ton the clothing and accessories ready to pass down! At the same time, we would absolutely love it if we found out we were having a girl — though we’ve joked that we’d be starting from square one and might have to learn a few things.”
Amy Duggar and her husband, Dillon King, meanwhile, revealed earlier this month that their first baby is on the way. “Happy Easter from our growing family to yours!!” the reality star, 32, captioned an Instagram photo of the pair holding “BABY” balloons.
