Jed and Katey are Expecting

One of the Duggar couples just shared some BIG news. Jedidiah and Katey Duggar are expecting their second child! Their first, Truett, was born in May 2022, and this baby is due in May 2023 (the day after Joy's third, which is a boy).

The happy couple made the big reveal to the Duggar family at their annual ugly Christmas sweater party (video link below).

    1. Except this is the place for all comments - it says Comments right above - and you really can't expect everyone to have one opinion only. Some people are concerned because we know the toll having babies so close together can take on a woman's body, her mental health, the family finances, and so on. I like to hear all types of opinions.

    2. I don't get joy out of rude and unasked for advice. Never in a million years would any of the Duggars be influenced by your concern or anyone else's as to how many children they have or what you think it does to their bodies,so save it.

    3. The Duggars may not listen to sage advice but it might give someone visiting this blog food for thought.

    4. There is a difference between giving advice versus what some people do on here. They think their way is right and the Duggar's or anyone else that thinks differently from them is wrong. I ain't saying their way is wrong either. Everyone's life journey is different. But I would have more respect for their advice if they actually went to the Duggar's social media pages instead of a fan blog. It does not make sense for them to come here and write their advices & opinions.

  2. Katey's pediatrician needs to have a serious talk with her about what is and isn't safe to put in a baby's crib, before something terrible happens. I don't know how that baby could breathe with the blanket over his face and all the pillows around him. Isn't SIDS awareness a thing these days?

    1. "Congratulations" would have been an appropriate response as well. But you do you.

  8. Congratulations Jedidiah and Katey. I pray for a healthy and safe delivery. I love watching the video. Everyone seemed excited about the news and happy to see each other. I wish the Duggar's would come back on Cable TV. My family misses them. We tried watching other shows but tlc is not the same. I watched on different devices but no luck. I pray in time for them to come back on as a family. Natasha b

  10. Finally a new post, and such a positive news…let’s hope more great news is to follow

  11. How exciting. Maybe Katey and Joy will give birth on the SAME day.

  12. Wow. Just when I thought the blog was history. All the best to them, but hopefully a baby won't be happening EVERY year.

    1. Why ever not? I think its great! This is refreshing. I am so glad to hear Jed say they're trying to catch up with his parents. My friend has been married seven years and has six kids and she and her husband are committed to leaving the womb in the hands of God and they are happy and blessed. Her sister has been married 10 years and also has six children but she also chose to place her womb in God's hands but God spaced out her pregnancies more then her sister. This is the freedom one gains by leaving everything in God's hands. He knows best what a couple can and can not handle and when. Every baby is an "heritage from the Lord' and "His reward". God chose to reward Jed and Katey with their second baby early and big congrats to them both! I'm really am excited for this news so early.

    2. It's her body, her choice. Do what's best FOR YOU.

    3. Of course a baby will be coming every year; that’s the Duggar way give or take!

  13. Wow! Grandduggar 31. I thought Jessa would be the next to announce a pregnancy. That's gong to be a LOT of work with two babies so close together.

    1. I counted only 26 grandchildren, but Joy said in her vlog that she's expecting grandchild number 30. Interesting! πŸ€”

  14. Glad to see posts again. It's been too long since the last update

  15. Why is Michael wearing a yarmukle? He is not in a synagogue or attending a seder. He is a Christian who has appropriated a yarmulke to wear as part of his yearly "ugly sweater" costume, and I find it extremely disrespectful. Older members of his family should have known better and should have forbidden it. Duggars, your lack of respect for other religions and other cultures is once again showing.

    1. It is beyond disrespectful. I was appalled to see that. There is nothing remotely funny about it!

      Delete
    2. Whoa. I don't know why Michael was dressed the way he was but I see no reason to leap to the conclusion that he was being "disrespectful to the Jewish religion. Although the Duggar have strongly held beliefs they promote I don't see them as being disrespectful to other religions.

      Delete
    3. Stop reading this blog if you are only going to bash the Duggars.

    4. Maybe he converted

      Delete
    5. Then why was such a sweater made?? You look for troubles lol

      Delete
    6. I'm Jewish Israeli. I'm not offended.

      Delete
    7. First off, you don't know the reasoning why he was wearing that. Don't be so quick to judge. He could had converted or went to a party at a Jewish friends house. I am Jewish and this does not offend me. I can sit here and judge you and say 'Yep, there's one of those people that only offend my people and people of the Muslim faith for political purposes only.'

    8. 10:54 -- Thanks for chiming in. Your opinion is the one that counts here, and I appreciate your viewpoint. Our society is doing a great job of training everyone to be offended by everything instead of showing each other grace.

      Delete
    9. @6:30 Wouldn't "showing each other grace" also include not dressing as them if you're not the same religion as them? You don't see people routinely donning other religions' headwear at parties, do you?

      Delete
    10. They might had attended a Jewish party. When my family invites non-Jewish people to parties, we usually offer them yarmulke and wine :)

      Delete
    11. This was not a Jewish party. This was the Duggar's annual goofy sweater and costume party held at Jim Bob & Michelle's. They gave out prizes for the best worst costumes.

    1. I've always thought the Duggar men look quite a bit alike and as they grow older the family resemblance is becoming even stronger.

  25. So excited for Jed and Katey! Hoping for more pregnancy announcements next year. It’s been a while for Jessa and Jinger. And hopefully Claire will be pregnant soon with her first!

  26. Congratulations Jed and Katey! I have a friend who has a daughter and a son 14 months apart,so I give my support for having Truett and new baby close in age. Prayers for a safe pregnancy and for both of you to handle 2 under 2 with confidence. Had thought Jessa or even Claire would be next to announce a pregnancy (or any other Duggar who has left the world of social media to lead private lives like Kendra or Lauren). Wish you ladies would give more updates on the family more often (same goes for the Bates).

  27. My brother and I are 12 months apart and share the same birth date! :)

    1. How cool would it be if their 3rd and 4th ones share the same birth date too, just a year later each!
      They could have 19 in 19 years instead of spreading them over 35 years like Michelle did!

  28. So happy for ya'll.

  29. It's funny to watch people worry about how many kid's someone has and how much money they make as if it effects them personally lol. Pathetic.

  30. Congratulations on your 2nd pregnancy Jed and Katey Duggar. The boy or girl might share the same birth date as your first bornπŸ˜€πŸ˜πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ƒπŸ™‚πŸ˜ŒπŸ˜˜
