Joseph and Kendra Duggar Are Expecting Their First Child Together

By  | 

There’s another Duggar on the way! On their quest to single-handedly populate the earth, the Duggar clan is expanding by one more, when Kendra and Joseph Duggar welcome their first baby sometime next year. Joseph is the 7th child of Ma and Pa Duggar, and he and Kendra were married just a few months ago. Moving along, right on schedule!

Kendra and Joseph Duggar announced the pregnancy on Instagram. Since he’s a married fellow now, he’s allowed to have social media, isn’t that nice?


Joseph, 22, and Kendra, 19 (god that’s so young) tied the knot in September. The couple met at church when they were younger, and began courting in March of this year. Following the Duggar tradition, they were married rather quickly, and will be parents before their first anniversary. Shoooooooooo.


Kendra joins sister-in-law Joy-Anna in the bump club. Joy-Anna and her husband Austin announced their pregnancy at the end of the summer.

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! Jesus is the giver of Life! The baby has arms, legs, fingers, and toes. It has a beating heart and brain waves. The baby responds to touch and is already right- or left-handed. The baby has its own unique fingerprints, which are different from anyone else's. All organ systems are in place! Psalm 139:13-16 "For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them." This passage indicates that God Himself formed our physical features and that He did so with a wonderful plan for our lives. God knew us in the womb. #babyforsyth #alreadyinlovewithmybaby #blessedbeyondmeasure #Jesusanswersprayers

There are also pregnancy rumors swirling around Jinger Duggar and husband Jeremy, but that’s not unusual. As soon as a Duggar daughter is married, the bump watch begins! For a Duggar girl, she’s waited an unusual amount of time between tying the knot and getting knocked up. The fact that Jinger and Jeremy aren’t parents yet even have some fans speculating that they’re unable to have kids. Or maybe they just don’t want them right now, wouldn’t be the worst thing!


Out of the 5 Duggar girls who’re old enough to get married, only Jana remains single and childless (you go, Jana). Jill and Jessa are both married with two kids each, Jinger is married, and Joy-Anna is married and pregnant.

The other 4 Duggar girls are still kids, ranging in age from 8 – 12. So we have a while before they get married off. Still holding out hope that Jana says “fuck it” and stays single forever.

Congrats, Kendra and Joseph! Best of luck on the first of what is sure to be many, many babies.
