Since they announced that they’re expecting a girl in August, John David Duggar and wife Abbie Grace Burnett haven’t shared many pregnancy updates. On Tuesday, October 1, however, they finally revealed that they’ve reached another pregnancy milestone. The Counting On couple took to Instagram to share not just the due date of their baby, but one of their favorite parts of the pregnancy. As it turns out, their little one has started kicking, and they just can’t get enough.

“One of our new favorite pastimes — feeling our little girl’s movements!” John David, 29, and Abbie, 27, told their fans on the social media site. The mom-to-be explained that she’s 25 weeks along, more than halfway through her pregnancy, and only has a few months left to go. “We are so excited to meet her in January!!! 💖💖💖” they wrote.

Auntie Jana Duggar was too excited to celebrate the moment with them. In the comments, she chimed in, “Can’t wait for her to arrive!! Maybe she’ll be born on our birthday!” Now that would be special — and we know the TLC stars would be more than happy to share their big day with Baby Duggar. In August, Jana even celebrated her niece-to-be’s gender reveal by sharing a special message with the baby’s parents.

“Congratulations to John and Abbie!! 😃🎀” the 29-year-old wrote. “I couldn’t have asked for a better twin to go through life with than John, and their little girl is so blessed already that she got such an amazing guy for her daddy!! And seeing what a tender caretaker Abbie has been for her family and in her job as a nurse, I know she is going to be an amazing mother!! Love y’all so much!! 💞🎀”

Jill Duggar and Anna Duggar also shared their excitement over the fact that John and Abbie’s little one has started kicking. “Such a fun season! [I] can’t wait to meet her!” wrote Anna, 31. Jill, 28, added, “Looking beautiful, mama!” Fans also had a lot of love for the couple, commenting about how happy they looked and how Abbie is glowing. “I don’t think you or John David have stopped smiling since the day you met each other,” one wrote. “Keep them smiles coming.”
