Josh and Anna Duggar just made a big announcement (actually, two big announcements). They are expecting their seventh child, and it's a girl! Since their oldest was born in 2009, Josh and Anna have continued the pattern of welcoming a baby every two years.

Vuolos Speak about Tension with the Dillards


"Family is strong, and so there's going to be difficulties in every family. ...So many families go through different issues, especially as children are growing, and this family happens to be in the public spotlight."

-Jeremy Vuolo

In December, we posted about Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo's upcoming book, "The Hope We Hold." (To pre-order the book, you can visit the publisher's website.) 

Ahead of the May 4th release date, the Vuolos did an interview with Us Weekly. One of the topics they discussed was the tension between Jill and Derick Dillard and the rest of the Duggar family. The link to that interview can be found below.

Justin and Claire Duggar are loving life as newlyweds. They are living in Texas, near Claire's family, which makes Justin and Jinger the only married Duggars that don't reside in Northwest Arkansas. The couple recently did a video interview with TLC to share what it has been like to live together and learn each other's quirks and habits (link below). Justin has introduced Claire to a new hobby, too.

Lauren Duggar: "I think it's obvious who she resembles." 

Josiah Duggar: "Many times you say to me, 'I feel like I'm raising a baby Josiah.'"

Bella Duggar is one year old, and she is becoming a very lively and talkative little girl. Her first sentence was "I love you." To watch Josiah and Lauren share a video update, visit the link below. Sadly, the video does not include any live shots of Bella, but it is still fun to watch.
