On August 1, John David and Abbie Duggar revealed they are expecting their first child together.
Abbie explained in an interview with TLC that she and John learned they were pregnant after making a trip to Urgent Care because she wasn’t feeling well.
She explained how the nurse broke the pregnancy news to her and John:
“She said, ‘Oh, and by the way, we always do a pregnancy test and your’s came back positive. And I was like, ‘What? I think I’m gonna cry!’
And now that the initial “excitement and shock” of learning they are expecting for the first time has subsided a bit, the soon-to-be family of three is sharing even more exciting news with their fans.
On August 20, John and Abbie took to their joint Instagram page to ask their followers if they think they are having a boy or a girl.
And in their interview with TLC, the couple also made some guesses of their own. John said he’s been telling himself that their firstborn is going to be a boy, but Abbie thinks she’s having a girl.
Soon after taking the poll, the couple revealed that it was Abbie who was right. They are expecting a daughter.
We couldn’t be more excited to announce…IT’S A GIRL!!!
And their fans and family couldn’t be more excited for them:
Yay! So excited for you two.
Congrats!!!! So exciting! Girls are so much fun dressing up in all the accessories.

Man the girls are booming in the Duggar family.
Yayyyyy, it’s a girl, congratulations Abby and John. I hope she has your beautiful curly hair too.

However, as many fans pointed out, one thing continues to remain unclear, when exactly is Abbie due to have their baby? The world is just going to have to wait and see.
