Another day, another exciting development for fans following the 2019 Duggar baby boom. The latest news involves Lauren and Josiah Duggar, who revealed their baby's sex on Tuesday, just months after their rainbow pregnancy announcement. So, are Lauren and Josiah having a girl or a boy? They spilled the beans in the most adorable way possible.
Back in May, Lauren and Josiah announced that they're expecting a baby in the fall. The exciting news comes one month after the couple opened up about suffering a miscarriage sometime in the fall of 2018.
"We are so excited to announce that baby #2 is on the the way!!!!" the couple penned on Instagram. "It’s hard to fully express just how grateful we are for God blessing us again with another precious gift!"
Amid the couple's excitement, Josiah and Lauren took to Us Weekly to share details about the pregnancy, including the baby's sex. “We are so grateful that God has blessed us with a sweet baby girl!” the pair said. “If she only knew how loved she is already and how many people are already praying for her! She truly is a gift… a miracle from God.”
Yep, Josiah and Lauren are expecting a little girl in a few short months!
As for how the pair's sex reveal party, Lauren's sister filled balloons with white confetti, saving the pink confetti-filled balloon for last. Simple yet cute, right?
But wait — Lauren isn't the only Duggar who revealed her baby's sex this past week. On the same day of Lauren's announcement, Kendra Duggar revealed to Us Weekly that she's also having a girl! “Parenting has already proven to be more wonderful than we could have dreamed,” Kendra and Joe Duggar said in a statement to Us Weekly. “Even though we come from large families, there is nothing like having your own children. We are so thrilled that a little girl will be joining our family! Garrett is going to be such a great big brother.”
The couple unveiled baby number two's sex at Garrett's first birthday party, giving him a smash cake filled with pink frosting, according to TLC.
Kendra and Lauren's sex reveal announcements continues a trend of baby girls for the Duggar fam. Jessa Duggar just gave birth to a girl in May, while Jinger gave birth to Felicity in July 2018. Oh, and I did mention Anna Duggar is also expecting a girl?
It's funny because before the baby girl boom, there was a baby boy boom. Jill and Jessa both have two boys, Kendra has a boy, and Joy-Anna Duggar also has a son.
Speaking of Joy-Anna, it's possible she'll have a girl too, but she hasn't shared any news yet.
What's special about this trend is the girls will grow up with built-in best friends and playmates. It couldn't have worked out better.
That being said, it would be kind of neat if Joy-Anna is pregnant boy — baby Gideon is adorable and I wouldn't mind seeing him with his own little twin. I guess that one is TBD.
In the meantime, here's to celebrating Lauren and Josiah's baby girl news. It's an undeniably exciting time for the couple and their pregnant in-laws!
