In addition to the video, the couple shared a series of images from their gender reveal party on their shared Instagram feed, @johnandabbie, with the caption, “Boy or girl, what’s your guess??” The post includes three images of John, Abbie, and their family at the gender reveal party. In two of the images, they are holding pink and blue baby booties and bottles.
The official gender reveal came during the video posted on TLC where the couple announced, “We are so excited to announce that we are having a baby girl.”
Abby shared that she’s “excited about hair bows and pink dresses and lots of sparkles.”
The couple’s gender reveal party had a flight theme. When guests arrived, they chose a boarding pass with different flight numbers (one for a boy and one for a girl). John David’s brother Jeremiah officially announced the gender when he flew a plane with a banner featuring the revealing flight number.
Yesterday, the couple shared a follow-up photo on Instagram, saying, “We couldn’t be more excited to announce…IT’S A GIRL!!!”
John and Abbie shared their baby news exclusively with People magazine in early August. They said that they were “on cloud 9 about welcoming our own little Duggar into the world. It is really amazing to think about being parents and having our own child to raise.”
Congratulations to the Duggars! We’re excited for them both to meet their baby girl for the first time!
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
Mamas Uncut is THE online place for moms. We cover the latest about motherhood, parenting, and entertainment as well – all with a mom-focused twist. So if you're looking for parenting advice from real parents, we have plenty of it, all for moms from moms, and also experts. Because, at the end of the day, our mission is focused solely on empowering moms and moms-to-be with the knowledge and answers they’re looking for in one safe space.
