Duggar Family grows: Josh and Anna expecting second child

See also

Josh and Anna Duggar announced Thursday that they are having another baby. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's oldest child told People.com that he and his wife are expecting their second child in June of 2011.

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

Josh and Anna's daughter celebrated her first birthday on October 8. Josh, 22, said he wasn't sure if he will continue with the tradition of using "M" names for his children.

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

Josh joked that he and Anna "will be having 25" children. In reality, they said they are leaving it "up to God" just as Jim Bob and Michelle have done.

The young couple, who live in Fayetteville, Arkansas, suffered a miscarriage over the summer and were scared to announce another pregnancy. "But we knew that either way, no matter what happens, we are going to celebrate this life and we were happy to share the news with everyone," Josh said.

As for the grandparents: "We are so excited about the new expansion to our family," Jim Bob said. Michelle agreed, saying, "We can't wait to find out more about this new baby."

    I hope that Anna Duggar will carry her second child to her full term of her pregnancy and I sure do hope that the baby is a healthy baby and I don't want the baby to die. Babies are a really good blessing from god and they need tender loving care a whole lot. I hope that Josh and Anna Duggar will go to New York City for The Today's Show after they go and see Doctor Amy Sarver and when they go to New York City for the Today's Show I hope that Buddy The Cake Boss will make them another Gender Cake and they can find out if they're having another girl or a boy this time.

    I bet that Josh and Anna Duggar will find out the gender of their second child next month to see if they're having another girl or a boy this time! Keep me posted I hope that Josh and Anna Duggar's second baby will have a heartbeat and I hope that they did the Amino this time . Please keep me posted and to see if Anna Duggar had another Miscarriage or not okay. I'm really concerned for the Duggar Family and I read about before Michelle Duggar was pregnant with Jana and John David Duggar she took Birth Control Pills and she had a Miscarriage back in 1989 too. My Dad's sister I mean my Aunt Wanda Butler Boothe had a tubal pregnancy and had a Miscarriage back in 1997. And my Dad's younger sister I mean my Aunt Julia Butler Mcclaughlin was pregnant last summer in the year of 2010 and had a Miscarriage in the year of 2010. My Uncle Mark Steger's 2nd Ex- Wife Lara was pregnant and Lara had a Miscarriage back in 2003. And Lara was finally pregnant with my cousin Maddison Loraine Steger and Maddison had a heartbeat and Maddison was finally born.

    I had a dream that Josh and Anna Duggar where expecting twin girls this June of 2011 too. Keep me posted on the update for that too. Next Month in February of 2011 they're going to see Doctor Amy Sarver and to see the gender of their second child to see if they're having another little baby girl or a baby bouncing boy this time too. I just pray to God that Josh and Anna Duggar will have a healthy baby this time .
