The Duggar family is growing! John David Duggar and his wife Abbie Duggar announced she’s pregnant with the pair’s second child.
“To the little girl who calls me Mommy and our little boy due in late summer, I’ll love you forever! #mothersday,” a post on the couple’s joint Instagram account read on Sunday, May 8.
John David Duggar and Wife Abbie Make a Pretty Exciting Announcement on Mother’s Day
In one photo, Abbie held her baby bump in a pink dress while holding hands with the duo’s 2-year-old daughter, Grace.
John David and Abbie married in November 2018 after announcing their engagement that July. Us Weekly broke the news in January 2020 that the former TLC personalities welcomed their first child.
“Our lives have changed forever with the arrival of our baby girl,” the Counting On alums told the outlet at the time.
“She is a beautiful gift from God. We are so blessed the Lord has given her to us. It’s still surreal to know that we are really parents but it’s a great new adventure that we are excited to take on together.”
Two weeks later, the couple shared what life looked like at home with their newborn.
“We are settling into our new routine of life, which has included a few long nights as Gracie is still trying to figure out the difference between day and night!” John David and Abbie gushed.
“Mom and baby are both doing well, and we are very much in love with her! It’s also been so nice to have good advice and help from our families. We are grateful for all the support they’ve shown us in this new and wonderful phase of our life.”
Abbie called her doting husband “an angel,” telling the outlet that he once dropped everything to get her a heat pack.
“He said, ‘No, you need this. I want to go get it for you,’” she recalled. “He’s cooked for me. He’s cleaned.”
“It hit her hard, and she was down for probably seven weeks,” the Arkansas native told the outlet in October 2019. “She was hospitalized a couple times. We made multiple visits to the ER for dehydration. … She couldn’t eat, pretty much, or drink, or anything. So she was actually on IVs and had IVs at home. So that was a pretty scary time.”
