"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 Counting On stars told the mag. "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 exciting news doesn't come as too much of a surprise, though, considering rumors of a pregnancy have been swirling for weeks! Joe and Kendra had gone radio silent once they returned home from their Grecian honeymoon in October, and fans were getting desperate for some answers. The Duggars posted a baby photo of Joseph on Dec. 4, and one fan practically begged for information. "How is this guy doing??? We need updates!!! I love him and Kendra; they are the cutest couple EVER!!!! Hope to hear from them soon!" Plus, Kendra did hide behind her mom in a recent photo, and we couldn't help but wonder if she was trying to obscure a bump! In the family's recent Thanksgiving photo, she was wearing plenty of layers to make it impossible to tell.
Their whirlwind romance began when they met at church when they were younger. They confirmed in March that they were courting, and Joseph proposed to Kendra at his sister Joy-Anna Duggar’s wedding in May. "We are so grateful for how the Lord brought us together," they said in a statement on the Duggar family’s blog at the time. Congrats to the happy couple — we can't wait to meet their little one!
Fans are concerned now that Kendra Duggar is married. Find out what they are by watching the video below!
