Congratulations are in order for Josh and Anna Duggar! The expecting pair took to Instagram on Thursday, June 20, to reveal the gender of their sixth child. “This is the 6th gender reveal for our little family and it’s always so exciting!” Anna, 30, captioned the sweet video. “Each child God has given us is unique and special — we all look forward to the arrival of our daughter/sister this fall!”
A little girl?! You know what that means … Anna and Josh will officially have three of each. The couple already shares daughter Mackynzie, 9, son Michael, 8, son Marcus, 6, daughter Meredith, 3, and son Mason, 21 months. “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,” the proud mama continued. “While it’s hard to believe it’s been that long, it also reminded us to get this video posted!”
In addition to sharing the family’s excitement, Anna shared a heartwarming “behind-the-scenes” story with her followers. “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!” Anna recollected.
“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!” Of course, Anna concluded her joyful post with a thoughtful message about Grandma Mary’s tragic death.
“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!” We are glad they were able to share the special news, too! Congratulations again, Josh and Anna. We can’t wait to meet your sweet little girl.
