Joy-Anna Duggar and Carlin Bates, spring 2014

The Duggars are gearing up for a big wedding this weekend, and most of you know the couple that is getting hitched. We'll give you a hint: It's set to take place in Knoxville, Tennessee. That's right, Carlin Bates is marrying Evan Stewart this Saturday!

Two Duggars will be in the wedding. Joy-Anna (Duggar) Forsyth will be a bridesmaid, and Justin Duggar will be an usher. (Visit our Bates blog to view the full wedding party list. It's going to be a large one!)

Baby S #3 Coming SOON

Jessa Seewald, 37 weeks 6 days pregnant

Baby Seewald #3 is due on June 5th, which means that Jessa will be 38 weeks tomorrow. As they did for Spurgeon and Henry, Jessa and Ben found out the gender but are choosing not to share it with their families or the public. Jessa's past two deliveries have occurred five days past her due date, so that would put this baby's birthday on June 10th. What are your predictions for arrival date and gender?

According to Jessa, the five Duggar ladies who are currently pregnant (Jessa, Anna, Kendra, Lauren, and Joy-Anna) are planning a photo shoot, hopefully before Jessa's delivery. For interest's sake, we have included snapshots of Jessa's bump during her past two pregnancies.

The couple is expecting again! They are due with their little rainbow baby this fall, right on track with Josh and Anna Duggar, Joseph and Kendra Duggar, and Joy and Austin Forsyth.

Congratulations on your little miracle from the Lord, Josiah and Lauren! Visit Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's website to watch a short video clip from the excited parents.
