And after fans actually took the time to cast their votes via an Instagram poll, the parents just announced the answer after pulling off an extremely unique gender reveal. 

Drumroll, please...

Gender Question

They're having a girl! 

The reveal was a family affair as they couldn't have pulled it off without the help of their many kids.

During the sweet moment, which was shared on Instagram, one of the sons poured water over a gold beehive which read, "What's it gonna bee?!"

The hive then bubbled over with pink foam.

"It's a girl!" the kids screamed, jumping and clapping with excitement. 

"This is the 6th gender reveal for our little family and it [is] always so exciting!" Anna wrote to Instagram on Thursday to share the happy news.

We don't know why she chose the word "little", considering the two are already parents to Mackynzie, Michael, Marcus, Meredith and Mason...but ok. 

"Each child God has given us is unique and special -- we all look forward to the arrival of our daughter/sister this fall!" the mother of six continued.

Anna also took a moment to reminisce on their first ever gender reveal which was inspired by grandma Mary Duggar. 

"This morning Jessa [Duggar] sent over an article which mentioned our first gender reveal with Mackynzie on the Today Show as something that helped popularize gender reveal cakes 10 years ago," she shared.

"While it's hard to believe it's been that long, it also reminded us to get this video posted!"

She then went on to share the precious story -- reminding us of what a significant role the late Mary played in all of her grandchildren's lives.

"A little behind the scenes story," she started.

"When I was expecting Kynzie, Grandma Duggar excitedly told me of a 'new trend' that featured baking a gender reveal cake," said Anna.

"Grandma asked if she and Amy [Duggar] could bake one for us?!?!"

"Josh and I loved the idea and that was our plan...until our producers heard about the idea and it grew quite a bit!"

Buddy the Cake Boss ended up baking their first gender reveal cake and the couple cut into a pink desert alongside Meredith Vieira in New York City.

"All that to say, Grandma was the one who sparked this special tradition for our family and it sounds like a lot of other families have enjoyed the idea over the years as well!" Anna said today.

After Mary Duggar's tragic drowning last week, this sixth reveal was a special moment for the Duggar family.

"This 6th gender reveal is a reminder of her love -- I'm so glad we were able to share the news of our third little girl with Great-Grandma before she went to be with Jesus!" Anna continued.

She concluded her emotional post by adding the hashtag #littleduggars.

The couple announced that they were expecting back on April 26.

As with everything involving Josh, the news received a mixed reaction from the public.

For many, the Josh Duggar sex scandals remain a painfully vivid memory, and there are those who believe the 31-year-old is beyond forgiveness.

Thankfully, Josh has not attempted a return to television -- as has often been rumored -- but developments in his personal life are still big news in Duggar Nation.

"We couldn't be happier to share with the world that our family is growing by one this Fall," the couple said as part of their pregnancy announcement.

As usual, the Duggar faithful praised the couple, while many others pointed out that it's more than a little unnerving to think of a known sexual predator being surrounded by so many children 

But even though Josh and Anna are often the targets of scrutiny (which is totally fair due to Josh's disgusting and monstrous past!we'll still offer our reluctant congrats to this growin' fam! 

At the very least, we're happy for their adorable kids, as they anxiously await the arrival of their little sister.
