In a YouTube video titled “JED & KATEY DUGGAR – GENDER REVEAL!!!” which was posted on Friday, January 7, Katey and Jed documented their gender reveal party. Their family and friends gathered at a local park where Jed would be revealing the sex of their first child by hitting a ball filled with colored powder with a baseball bat — the color of the smoke indicating blue for boy or pink for girl.
As Jed took a swing at the ball, it immediately burst with blue powder which indicated they are having a son.
The couple previously announced Katey’s pregnancy just five months after they got married.
“She tested positive but not for COVID,” the Counting On star, 22, wrote via Instagram in September 2021. The couple could be seen kissing while Katey, 23, held a sign that read, “And then there were [three].” Their first child is due sometime in Spring 2022.
The couple were over the moon excited about this next chapter together and dished all the details about Katey’s pregnancy in a 10-minute YouTube video.
“We picked up a pregnancy test. I have been feeling kinda funny for the past few weeks,” Katey explained. “I have been having cramping, bloating, just different things that have been odd … I need to take a pregnancy test. If it’s negative, we should go to a doctor and make sure everything is OK.”
The mama-to-be took the test in the bathroom at Wal-Mart, and the pair began “screaming in the parking lot” after the results came back positive.
“We thank the Lord first of all because God answered our prayers,” Katey gushed.
“For a long time, I have prayed for my future spouse, not knowing who that person would be. God answered my prayers far beyond what I could have ever imagined in Katey!” Jed wrote in his announcement via Instagram. “We have enjoyed quietly developing our relationship over the past year and every moment together has been amazing! I’m so grateful God brought Katey into my life and excited to share with you all that today she became my wife! Katey, the thought of sharing the rest of my life with you makes me the happiest man in the world! I love you so much!!”
