Joseph Duggar, Wife Kendra Expecting First Child Together

The Counting On star is going to be a dad!

Joseph Duggar and his wife, Kendra, announced that they're expecting their first child together in a video message on the family's website on Monday, Dec. 18, 2017.

"I've always dreamed of having my own family and it's really just kind of surreal that it's actually here," Joseph said (via People). "I kind of think it's going to be a boy, but either way, I'm happy just to have a baby."

To which Kendra added, "I think it could be a girl. You never know!" She also shared some parenting tips the two have recently received, saying, "The biggest piece of advice that I've heard is just to get lots of sleep."

The 19 Kids and Counting star went on to say that he hopes their little one has his wife's laugh, while Kendra wishes their baby has her husband's patience.

Joseph, 22, and Kendra, 19, were married by the latter's pastor father in September 2017 at the First Baptist Church in Siloam Springs, Ark., before flying off for their romantic honeymoon in Greece. The two met in church and began their courtship in March 2017.

"It is an amazing feeling to be husband and wife," Joseph told People soon after tying to knot. "It's something that I've always dreamed of to have a wife and to raise a family in a way that honors the lord. We are to very excited to see what God has in the future for us."

Fans who eagerly tuned in to watch the couple say "I do" during an October episode of Counting On will be pleased to know that the two plan to document their pregnancy journey on the show's upcoming season, which will air in 2018.

Congratulations to the parents-to-be! While we wait for more baby news from Joseph and Kendra, read up on the strangest celeb baby announcements.
