Guys, we're down to just one pregnant Duggar couple, and we're starting to panic that soon there will be no Dug babies on the way! It has always felt like no matter what, you could always count on (at least!) one Duggar couple being pregnant at a time, and this year started off strong with three couples expecting babies. But after two back-to-back births, we're just weeks away from having no pregnant Duggars! Keep up with which Duggars are pregnant, could be pregnant soon, or recently gave birth, below!
Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth
Austin and Joy-Anna announced their pregnancy on Instagram very soon after their 2017 wedding, on August 30. They shared the happy news with three photos and a caption that said Joy was "eating for two!" "Austin and I are SO thankful to announce that we are parents!! Even before we were married we prayed that God would give us children and we are so blessed that he has given us this baby!" Joy wrote.
It didn't take long for fans to speculate that Joy-Anna and Austin had sex before marriage, as their due date was literally nine months after the big day, but we're sure they would never admit that. Regardless, they had a precious baby boy named Gideon on February 23, 2018 at 3:39 pm. The big boy weighed ten pounds and three ounces, and his parents said "We are blessed beyond measure with the arrival of our son, Gideon Martyn Forsyth. Looking at our child for the first time was such an incredible moment! God is so good, and we are so thankful." While Joy-Anna planned a home birth, things went awry and she was forced to rush to the hospital. Luckily, little Gideon was born happy and healthy.
Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell
Joseph and wife Kendra revealed that they're expecting their first child in December 2017, just three months after getting married. "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 revealed. "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!"
Well, the finally got to meet him on June 8! Little Garrett Duggar joined the family at 1:38 p.m., weighing in at seven pounds, eight ounces, and measuring in at 20-and-a-half inches long. "No matter how many times we’ve experienced the joy of babies born in our families, there’s nothing comparable to the joy in our hearts today! Children truly are a gift from God. We are so thankful for his safe arrival and this new journey as parents," Joe and Kendra said in their statement.
Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo
Jinger and Jeremy are now the last expectant parents in the family after Kendra and Joy-Anna gave birth. They announced that they were expecting their first child together in January, which was a long time coming because most Duggars get pregnant within months of their wedding, and JinJer tied the knot over a year before getting knocked up!
Though Jinger hasn't announced an exact due date, we know she's planning to give birth in June, and she shared the gender in April. “We are so happy to announce that we are having a little baby girl!” said the couple. “We could not be more excited and are eagerly anticipating meeting our little lady this summer." Once she's here, there will officially be no pregnant Duggars. Unless…
Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard
Fans have been speculating that Jill and Derick could be expecting a lot lately. First, fans thought she looked like she had a baby bump in one photo, then they noticed that she was going out of her way to crop her tummy out of pictures. They already have two sons: Israel, who is three years old, and Samuel, who's almost one year old. It's possible that the duo is just keeping the news quiet so as not to distract from the other babies, or perhaps it's all just misplaced fan speculation.
Lauren Swanson and Josiah Duggar
Lauren and Josiah are set to be married sometime this year, although they've been a little tricky when it comes to their wedding date. Either way, they're head-over-heels in love, and we wouldn't be surprised if we got a pregnancy announcement before the end of 2018. Some fans even think Lauren could be expecting already, thanks to a possible baby bump sighting.
Congrats to all the happy couples! We can't wait to meet their little ones.
