Duggar continued, “We will give a more detailed update soon, but for now, go to our YouTube channel to find out the GENDER and to watch this journey we’ve been on.”

In the video the “Counting On” star shared on YouTube, she captioned all of the moments of her pregnancy to date, including when she shared the news with her husband.


“I cannot believe it,” Joy-Anna shared. “If it’s true, I’m shocked. I’m not as scared as I thought I’d be after miscarrying at 20 weeks. I thought I was going to be so nervous, but I’m not. I’m excited. It’s crazy.”

And she was happy to share that the two are expecting a little girl the second week of August.

“I could not believe it,” she added. “I just started crying. I didn’t even know what to say. We’re super excited, nervous and thankful all at the same time.”

It all comes after the reality star shared the heartbreaking news last summer that she had suffered a miscarriage with her second child. The couple named their unborn Annabell Elise.

“Annabell means ‘God has favored me,’ and Elise means ‘God satisfies,'” Joy-Anna said. “What a precious thing to know that when our daughter opened her eyes, the first thing she saw was the face of Jesus. Please pray for continued healing, not only physically but for our hearts as well.”

As previously reported, the couple had announced news they were expecting once again after she gave birth to a son, Gideon, in February 2018.

Joy-Anna and Austin tied the knot in May 2017.
