ANOTHER Boy? Oh My!

Johannah Duggar and Samuel Dillard
Johannah Duggar and nephew Samuel Dillard
Now that Joseph and Kendra Duggar have announced the gender of their baby, we can officially say that the Mackynzie Duggar and Meredith Duggar are outnumbered. They have three brothers and four male cousins (now with one more on the way).

Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo will welcome their first child in July and are looking forward to finding out the gender soon. Joy-Anna and Austin Forsyth are expecting a baby in the next few weeks but have chosen to be surprised. If Baby Vuolo and Baby Forsyth are both boys, Mackynzie and Meredith are really in trouble!

Even if you include the rest of the Duggar clan, the ladies are still outnumbered. Out of the current 36 family members, 22 are guys, while just 14 are females.

  1. I had a boy in 1964 - another boy in 1966 and a third boy in 1969 . . . . back when we did not know the gender prior to birth. . . then in 1972 I had a girl.
    We ALL thought it would be another boy and were thrilled to have a daughter. I am a firm believer to wait and find out the gender at time of birth.
    Good for Joy & Austin. . . .guess that comes with the generation for the most part.
    All the best to everyone.

    1. I don't think there's anything wrong with either. Some people want to call their baby by the name they choose, instead of having to say "it" or "the baby".

    2. We had a boy in 2007 and then decided to try for a girl in 2010 and got identical twin boys. When the twins were 9 months old my birth control failed and I got pregnant and had our 4th boy in 2012. Then in 2016 we finally got our baby girl! We aren't taking any more chances πŸ˜‚

    4. Anon 5:33. I also have 4 boys and a girl. But my girl is the oldest, so that makes a big difference. Lord willing, we will have another girl one day.

  3. I found out the gender of my son. Didn't do the whole big reveal thing.
    If i have another baby I want to find out at birth. I think that's awesome.

  5. The title of this post made it seem like another couple had announced they were having a boy! You might want to think about changing it. :)

    1. I did too, but I don't think it really matters since you find out that's not the case in about two secondsπŸ˜‚

    1. Gramma Duggar never seems to count, for some reason. :(

      Delete
    2. Because they count from Jim bob and Michelle downwards

  9. I'm going to laugh if both Jinger and Joy's first babies are boys. I'm really hoping one is a girl because I know there aren't many females in the Duggar Clan.

    Congrats to Joe and Kendra! And to Joy, Austin, Jinger and Jeremy as well!

    1. For a brief time in 2015 Jill, Jessa and Anna were all pregnant. But jessa publicly announced after jill gave birth to Israel.

      Delete
    2. Yes! Jill, Jessa, and Anna were all pregnant at the same time once. If Jessa announces a pregnancy before Joy has her baby, then there will be born than there ever have been.

    3. Jill, Jessa, and Anna have all been pregnant at the same time.

    4. Jill, Jessa, and Anna we’re all pregnant at the same time once. So I think it’s a tie between then and now with three at once.

    6. When Jessa was in her first trimester with Spurgeon, Jill and Anna were also pregnant.

    7. Yes Anna, Jessa and Jill were for a short time

    8. Wasn't Anna and Michelle pregnant at the same time? I often wonder if Michelle and Jim Bob wanted one last baby.

      Delete
    9. They did have one last baby. Her name is Josie

  13. I had my oldest in 2009 and my youngest in 2011. I never found out what I was having. Told the ultra sound tehe to stay away from that area. Everyone in both families was so mad at me the entire pregnancy for not finding out. In a world where we can find out anything we want, I think the surprise of a babies gender is the best!!

  14. My father had a girl and a boy. His oldest sister had 2 girls. His youngest sister had 2 boys.

    1. Why couldn't Meredith play with her boy cousins?

    2. I'm hoping for that too. the funny thing is that grandchilren on for both that Bates and Duggars are going the same way as their children.

      For the Remember:
      the Dunggars have 10 boys and 9 girls
      the grandchildren through the first 8
      is 6 boys and 2 girls
      the Bates have 10 girls and 9 boys
      the grandchildren 6 girls and 2 boys
      I also think Bradley and Carson feel the Same way as Mackenzie and Meredith does

  19. There are 2 granddaughters and 8 grandsons in my family. The girls are not in trouble. Everyone gets along fine and has fun together. You don't need an equal number of girls and boys. It's not a contest.

  24. I'm really hoping Joy and Jinger have girls. Mckenzie has aunts around her age but Meredith does not. Lets hope and pray girls!

  25. I'm 1 of 5 girls and we are all a year or less apart in age! No boys! The 2 oldest are only 11 months apart, so for 1 month of every year they are the same age! My 1 sister and I were born on the same day. My mom had her in another country and had me in the US. If I had been born in the other country like my sister, we wouldn't have the same birthdays because the other country is 1 day ahead of the USA. But, my dad was in the service and got stationed back here in the USA, so I've shared my birthday with sis my whole life and I've loved it!
