Josh and Anna Duggar: Expecting Baby #2!

by at . Comments

Josh and Anna Duggar, the eldest son and daughter-in-law of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, are expecting a second child! Congratulations to the couple!

Josh Duggar, 22, the eldest of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting, said of their impending second baby, "It was awesome to get the news." Anna is also 22.

The two have a daughter, Mackynzie, who turned a year old on October 8. Jim Bob and Michelle's youngest, Josie Duggar, was born two months later.

Anna and Josh Duggar are expecting their second little one.

"I showed Josh the positive pregnancy test on Mackynzie's birthday," says Anna. "It was fun to announce it to everyone on that already happy day."

"We are so excited about the new addition to our family," says patriarch Jim Bob, who is rumored to be planning baby #20 (yes, 20) with Michelle.

With Jim Bob and Michelle using the letter J to name all their children, will Josh and Anna launch an "M" tradition of their own for their kids?

"We don't know," says Josh. "We decided on Mackynzie's name pretty late in the pregnancy and so we'll think of names and see what fits."

As far as how many kids the newest Duggar couple plan on having, Josh quips he's going to give his parents a run for their fertile money.

"We'll be having 25," Josh replied to People, jokingly.

In fact, he and Anna have agreed to leave the number of children they have "up to God," as do Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. Good to know.

Those events showed that "it is easy to be grateful when things are easy, but as we saw with Josie's scare, it is harder when things are tough."

Indeed. Congratulations to the expectant parents! Certainly, two children seems like a manageable sum. But five, 10 or 20? That's just, well ...

Are the Duggars having too many kids?
