Anna Duggar is Expecting!

You called it! Josh and Anna Duggar are expecting their second child in June 2011! "I showed Josh the positive pregnancy test on Mackynzie's birthday," Anna told People.
The young couple was thrilled for a positive pregnancy test after Anna's miscarriage this summer.
"I was very sad," Anna says. "Josh was a big encouragement to me. It helped us go through the heartbreak to learn that 30 or 40 percent of pregnancies end in miscarriage."When asked how many kids they expect to have, Josh announced, "We'll be having 25." But he quickly assured everyone that he was only joking. He and Anna will welcome all the gifts the Lord has in store for them, whether that's two children or twenty-two.

Tune into TLC this Sunday at 8PM/7PM CST to see Josh and Anna make their exciting announcement to the rest of the Duggar clan!
How many kids do you have?


  1. How exciting! I was wondering when they would be expecting baby #2. My little girl was born the day after they had Mackynzie and I have since had a little boy who is 10 months younger than his sister. Very happy for the both of them.

  2. We have 2 boys adopted from Russia, we are working on our third child and first daughter from Bulgaria home Spring 2011. And praying for many more!

  3. WOW! That's awesome!!! Praise God! Ooo! I hope it's a boy! That would be so awesome!

    I have had miscarriages. I am proud that Anna has chosen to talk about it and let other women see they don't have to suffer in silence. Talking about it REALLY helps.

  14. Anonymous,

    Yes, I have heard lots about her miscarriage, I was just encouraged by Anna more so...sharing her thoughts on miscarriage and all because, she is around the same age as myself, and I just felt I could relate better to her which really helped me a lot!! (:
    I'm glad I'm not alone in this :)

  15. Out of 6 pregnancies, I was only able to give birth to two babies. After the first two miscarriages we were told we couldn't have any children, but we had a boy and then a girl. Sadly, our daughter died 10 years ago at the age of 16. I always wanted to have a big family. I ended up starting a daycare. My happiest times were having 30 kids around each day. All of those kids are now grown up and many have children of their own.

  16. I am so happy for Anna and Josh. I am sad to hear about the miscarriage but I hope that the new baby will be healthy.

  17. I don't have any children by choice.

  18. They should name them: If they have a boy Micheal James Duggar and if they have a girl McKenna Grace Duggar
