    1. Why wait til the end of the year, at the rate they're already going?

    2. I hope she gives her body time to heal. It all seems fun and games now but it can have serious consequences on her body later. My grandma had 6 kids under 6 and now almost 60 years later she says her body is still suffering. She actually went on bc in secret because my grandpa kept wanting kids and she just couldn’t any more. I hope Joe is gracious with Kendra if she feels her body needs a break.

    3. I won’t be surprised if that happens.

    4. Yep in 2022 they’ll have a daughter named Queens in 2023 a daughter named Manhattan and in 2024 a son named Bronx.

    5. Yikes! That's too soon!

    6. Whatever floats their boat- For myself, planning our family size worked out very well. We have no regrets limiting our number of children to two.

      Delete
    7. In their pace, she can be pregnant within 3 months... I do hope they will think before they act... and hopefully not only about what mom and dad would advice them....

      Delete
    8. I don’t think they believe in family planning. She probably will get pregnant as soon as the breastfeeding effect wears off.

  4. She really wants a girl so this is fantastic. And Brooklyn kan help her mom when she is older.

  5. I'm thinking they are going for an alphabet theme with girls here - Addison, Brooklyn...

    1. It would be weird if they did that for the girls but not for the boys in my opinion

      Delete
    2. No, they just liked the name Brooklyn when they were looking through a book of baby names they said in the interview ,but they might go for surname names who knows, Josiah and Lauren said they are going for alphabet theme, first Asa second Bella, if the third is named Casey they will have another grandchild named like a Bates grandchild as the Bates already have a Brooklyn, I like the name, I generally like surnames names.

      Delete
    3. Not sure where you have it that there’s a Casey in the Bates family....🤷‍♀️ There’s Carson, perhaps you were confused with that?

      Zach and Whitney have a daughter named Kaci Lynn.

    10. Is someone is referring to Kaci, her name starts with "K", not "C".

    11. They might... they also have double letters in each name, and so the next one probably will have similar pattern, like Lucca, Harrison or Emma.

  8. That name is full-out copying of Erin Bates.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, the Duggars and Bates have kids with the same names too, Jackson and Josie. Why not grandkids? Besides, it would only be full-out copying if they had the same middle name too.

      Delete
    2. How is it copying? Erin doesn’t own the name Brooklyn. She didn’t invent it either. It’s a very common days these days. These 2 families are huge, obviously there’s going to be names in common. There are already Jacksons and Josies in both families. In neither instance is that copying 🙄

      Delete
    3. So... Erin doesn't have a copyright on the name.

      Delete
    4. No it isn't, erin’s daughter is Brooklyn Elise. Brooklyn is a very common name.

      Delete
    5. Is Erin Bates the only one in the world with a child named Brooklyn?

      Delete
    6. Actually the duggars used the name Brooklyn first its Josie's middle name. Anyway its their choice one name isn't limited to one family.

      Delete
    7. @10:08
      Yes I had to read it again to make sure that is the word I read.lol

      Delete
    8. Brooklyn is extremely popular name. Duggar's daughter Josie actually has a middle name Brooklyn too.

  9. Congrats to the sweetest Duggar couple! I doubt Garrett and Addison understand, but i'm sure they'll be great older siblings and little Brooklyn will have 2 siblings very close in age to play with.

  10. I predict she will announce another pregnancy in August.

    1. Wow. That would be something else. I hope that doesn't happen.

      Delete
    2. I doubt it, they seem like they wait three months to announce and I don't see her getting pregnant again until August at least. Which would make an announcement in November. I think they'll be announcing again by December

      Delete
    3. June would also be a possibility..

  11. That middle name is interesting...

  13. I hope she slows down now.

    1. I hope she and Joe do what they feel is best for their family.

      Delete
    2. It's unlikely that 8 more kids in 8 years would be "best for their family."

      Delete
    3. 11:26, eight kids in eight years is just speculation, not based on any knowledge we have about what they have in mind.

      Delete
  14. Happy for you all. Now slow down with all the babies. Let your body heal. It's not a race to see who can produce the most babies. We all also know children are a gift from GOD too.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Those gifts of God are allowed to come whenever God decides, they are not going to space them because they are not going to use birth control,they have said they will have as many as God will give them, anyway if they have decided that it means they have embraced they will have a large family maybe as big as the one Joe comes from, but they want to make the sacrifice because they love children as they view them as a gift from God not as a burden to her body or a burden that will give her too much to do, which I quite admire about them, so if Michelle was one in million I wouldn't mind changing that to two or three in a million depending how many of them decide to follow Michelle.

      Delete
    2. Sadly I highly doubt Kendra will slow down

      Delete
    3. Oh, my goodness. A simple congratulations is more appropriate than a lecture on family size.

      Delete
    4. 7:03 They are free to have as many children as they want, but I do not admire them or anyone who chooses to have a huge family. Not using birth control is a choice.

      Delete
    5. Why don't you admire anyone with a big family!? I have seven siblings, Which BTW, is a BIG family in todays standards, and my parents used birth control! Why would you say that?! You don't know them, or my family, either! Just don't! That comment made me sick to my stomach! Saying you dislike, or think poorly of someone because they CHOSE to have several children! Wow. I am sick to my stomach.

  15. Congrats to them! I hope Kendra had an easier time of it with this baby and that she recovers quickly.

  17. Why do all married Duggar women constantly look at their husbands while speaking? Do they need permission to continue speaking?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I’m not a Duggar, but I look at my husband a lot while speaking because I absolutely love him! Maybe that’s why they do it?

      Delete
    2. When my husband talks to someone else in the group I look at him. I almost always look at the person who is talking. What would you look at in her shoes?

      Delete
    3. Yes. If he nods they can continue speaking.

      Delete
    4. Why is there always someone always criticize EVERY thing they do???? Can’t you just be happy that there happy!!!

      Delete
    5. If I were on camera, I would find it much less awkward to look at the person speaking (which is what I do when I'm not on camera) than be looking at the camera or staring off into space).

      Delete
    6. Well, let's see. When the husbands look at their wives talking, it makes them look interested in what their wives are saying. When they don't look at their wives, they look bored. I'd rather see an interested-looking listener than a bored-looking listener.

      Delete
    7. I think it's just a strange habit they've learned by being on camera so much. My husband would think I was off my rocker if I did that!

      Delete
    8. 5:24 I think the OP is referring to when the Duggar wives are being interviewed, they look at their husbands while they themselves are talking, not just when the husband speaks.

      Delete
    9. Who knows? Most of us look at the person we're talking to.

      Delete
    10. I think that is common courtesy to look at the person who is speaking. Good manners are being used to honor the other person.

      Delete
    11. Wow, can't believe how many people got this wrong! As 9:44 said, the OP was talking about when the WOMEN are speaking, and they keep looking at their husbands. I have noticed the same thing, and have no problem with them doing that. He is the leader, and she looks to him for support, encouragement and, yes, perhaps affirmation that what she is saying is ok. (Waiting for the fallout from my remarks!!!!!!)

      Delete
    12. @12:13. My husband is not my leader. We are equal partners in our marriage of over 34 years. I do not need my husband's affirmation that what I am saying is Ok. I am an adult, like he is. If he doesn't agree, he can speak up as I speak up if I do not agree with him. That is how equal adults he have.

      Delete
    13. Read it again: When the WIFE speaks, she constantly looks at the husband, WHILE speaking. I am not criticizing, I am not shaming, I am not saying it is wrong... do not assume my assumptions. I am curious. It is a normal thing to ask questions when curious.

    1. He works for the family car lot business,remember the episode where Kendra called Joe at work when she wanted him to come home to reveal the surprise that she was pregnant with her second, Josiah works there too, I think it's great that Jim Bob sorts his children out with jobs, they are a good investment for him with the money he earned on the show all those years ago and it's a more secure job for his sons, no risk of being fired like when you work elsewhere, where I come from in Italy people who have businesses employ their children before taking on anyone else, it's called looking after your own.

    2. He appears on a reality TV show.

    3. He is a car salesman.

    4. Anon 7:21. They live in a small rural area. There's limit to how many family members this used car lot can support. In reality the TV show is supporting the family in the lifestyle they enjoy. Who knows how long that will last?

    5. @9:21am,its a good job Joe has other qualifications such as real estate and construction, OK so the construction they thought themselves but they could still tile or paint homes for money that's exactly what my brother does when he doesn't find a job in his usual expertise which are truck driver, mechanic and pizza chef, and he's never more than a few weeks without a job, even with this pandemic,food stores need van drivers to bring their products.

  24. Brooklyn? Why not East LA or South Side Chicago or Downtown Detroit?

    1. Exactly what is wrong with this fairly common girl name? Simply because you can say something doesn't mean you should.

      Delete
    2. Because Brooklyn is an actual girl's name. 🙄

      Delete
    3. Here is another explanation of the name Brooklyn. I am showing my age, but I had three cousins marry "Marilyns", a combination of Mary and Lynn. More recently the name Caitlyn has been popular as combination of Kate and Lynn. So, Brooklyn does not necessarily come from Brooklyn, New York, it could also be a combination of Brooke (as in Brooke Shields) and Lynn. I like that take on the meaning. I think it fits Joe and Kendra's personality from their earlier choices. But we don't know which meaning they liked. The foloowing is from Wikipedia.

      "Brooklyn is first name that has increased in popularity for girls in the United States and Canada in recent years.[citation needed] It has occasionally been used as a name in honor of Brooklyn, the New York City borough, but is usually regarded as simply a combination of the names Brook or Brooke, a name derived from an English surname meaning "one who lives near a brook" and the suffix -lyn, which is an element in other popular contemporary names in the United States.

      The name was the 26th most popular name for baby girls in the United States in 2014 and was the 16th most popular name for baby girls born in British Columbia, Canada in 2006.[1] Spelling variants include, but are not limited to, Brook Lynn, Brooke Lynn, Brookelynn, Brookelynne, Brooklyne, and Brooklynn."

      Delete
    4. To add to my earlier post, the name Evelyn, the name of Joy and Austin's daughter, is a similar combination name, Eve + Lynn.

      Delete
    5. I agree with 10:49

    6. @10:49 Naming US cities that have economic problems is not racist.

    7. Shannon, you're too funny. Race has nothing to do with this comment thread (and there is just one race, the human race).

      Delete
  25. Maybe "Brooklyn" was to honor the baby's Aunt Josie, who has that for a middle name. Congratulations, Joe & Kendra!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Josie's middle name is Brooklyn

    2. I wouldn't want one or two tots helping me with a baby. Ever see a kid that age wrangle a doll or a stuffed animal?

      Delete
    3. @10:18 am, I presume you were also allowed to play with your friends, life isn't just about fun you have to balance it out by learning to have responsibility also, I know some people who were never given any tasks to do at home growing up, their life was all about themselves and what they wanted, and to be honest they haven't turned out to be very nice people.

      Delete
    4. My mother had 3 kids under 3 years old and I was the oldest and loved to help out with my little siblings. They were like my little real life baby dolls and we have always had such close relationships. I know that Joe will help Kendra a lot and Garrett is getting close to the age where he can start doing little things to help as well. Before we know it, Addi will be taking care of Brooklyn as well!

      Delete
    5. Anon 12:46 I don't think anyone should be scolded for saying they preferred playing with friends to caring for a baby when they were a child. IMO that's pretty honest. IMO children should be given tasks to perform around the house but my mind boggles at the idea of small children caring for a baby. The care of a baby is an adult responsibility after all.

      Delete
    6. My mom had 4 kids in 5 years. I was the oldest. I hated having siblings that close in age. We were treated like quadruplets. Parents did nothing with us as indivduals. Always the 4 kids. My siblings were bullies and mom never listened about that or did anything. They still are, even as adults.

      Delete
    7. My baby sister was so much fun. We would give her bottles, dress her, help change her diaper, entertain her. My mom was her chief caretaker, but she would let us help with those things, and it was always lots of fun. When my younger two were born, their older siblings adored them and also enjoyed helping with them. There is nothing wrong with siblings helping. It doesn't mean they do the majority of the caretaking, it's just helping. Little children obviously don't need to be feeding or changing them, but they can certainly run and get a clean diaper or put a used bottle in the kitchen or entertain a baby for a few minutes with Mom in the room.

      Delete
    8. 8:06: Addie is only 15 months older than the new baby; they will be close sisters for sure but I doubt not even a 2-year old will be able to "help" with a baby just a year younger than her...

      Delete
    9. It's not a given that the older siblings will "love" helping with the younger ones. Some people do, others don't. And most of us are familiar with the oldest sibling being put "in charge" of their younger siblings and sent out to play by their overwhelmed mother. We saw the Duggars assigning older siblings to take care of younger ones. It may work for some children but others may hate it.

      Delete
  30. I'm from the uk so I couldn't see the video in the link but sorted it by checking out other websites and got to see photos,I was eager to see who she looked like,Brooklyn doesn't look like either of her siblings, Garrett looks a mix of his parents, Addison looks like Joe and Brooklyn is all her mama, the round face,downward curved nose,thin lips and deep set eyes, she's a cutie just like Kendra who is a pretty young woman, Kendra herself looks just like her mom, so Kendra's sister due in May might look just like Brooklyn they could pass for sisters!

  31. I like how they have double letters in each kid's name - GaRReTT, ADDison, BrOOklyn. And also Brooklyn is a nice name. And I love the middle name.

  35. Oh yay. Congratulations Joe and Kendra on the birth of Brooklyn Praise. Love the middle name. It's so unique. Are Joe and Kendra doing a alphabetical order name theme for all their kids? They now have three kids named with the letters G,A,and B and their names start with J and K. All they need now is 6 more kids to use the letters C,D,E and F,H, and I so they catch up to K and go from there since they sound like they're going to have a large family and have each kid be spaced out between 1-2 years apart like Jim Bob and Michelle had their kids.

  41. Yet another tae on the history of the name Brooklyn. This time from Nameberry.
    Brooklyn Origin and Meaning
    The name Brooklyn is a girl's name.
    Extreme makeover: Brooklyn has gone from jokey Borough Boy name in the 1990s to the leading girls' name starting with B. The status of New York's Brooklyn as hipster heaven is ironic as few bona fide Brooklyn hipsters would choose this name.

    Brooklyn first came into widespread public view via the first Beckham boy born in 1999, though it had already entered the lower ranks of the girls' list in 1990, rising to the double digits in 2005, as more and more parents began to see it less as a NYC place name by separating it into its highly name-y syllables – brook and lyn.

    Brooklynn is one of several popular variations.

    1. Obviously the person who wrote that has never lived in Brooklyn NY. Oh the stories I could tell. Hipster heaven - ha. No.

    2. The name is not just a girl name. It can be boy too. Celebrities have used it for boy.
