John David Duggar and wife Abbie Burnett are expecting their first child! The couple excitedly revealed the news on their shared Instagram account, saying, “We are on Cloud 9 about welcoming our own little Duggar into the world!!! It really is amazing to think about being parents and having our own child to raise. We are thankful that God has blessed us with this new life and we look forward to taking on this new adventure.”
The couple posted a pic of themselves in a helicopter holding a onesie that says, “Baby passenger on board.”
The day before announcing, the couple posted a photo from a flight event in Wisconsin. John was holding Abbie’s stomach in the picture, and many fans commented that they thought Abbie might be pregnant.
Duggar, 29, and Burnett, 27, married last November after “courting” for a short few months. “We are so excited to be married! It was a beautiful moment and we so appreciate our friends and family for sharing this day with us,” they shared at the time.
“We fell in love very quickly,” John added. “And it’s been a wonderful journey thus far and taking the next step to move onto a courtship.” The couple became engaged after only a month of dating, and they married within a few months of beginning their courtship.
As they prepare for parenthood, you can watch the couple on Counting On, which returns to TLC this October.
Congratulations to John David Duggar and Abbie Burnett on their exciting pregnancy news! We with the parents-to-be the best of luck.
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 place for moms online. We cover the latest news around motherhood and parenting, plus entertainment news as well – all with a mom-focused twist. Looking for parenting advice? We have plenty of it, all for moms, from moms. Our mission is focused solely on empowering moms and moms-to-be with the knowledge and answers they’re looking for. We don’t stop there though, we have expert advice on a range of topics, and all of our categories get updated multiple times a day, so if there’s one website for moms you need to bookmark, it’s Mamas Uncut. We cover it all, from the latest and trendiest baby names, in the US and all over the world, to advice for moms in the workplace, or mom to mom advice on balancing it all.
