The couple revealed they were expecting in March.“For nearly the last two years, we have quietly worked to save our marriage, focus on our children, and rebuild our lives as a family,” Josh and Anna wrote on the blog. “Doing so is never easy after a breach of trust. We’ve learned that a life of faith and rebuilding a life together is simply done one day at a time."
“As we continue our journey as a family and rebuild our lives, we are delighted to share with you that we are expecting a new baby boy later this year. Beauty comes from ashes and we cannot wait to see and kiss the face of this sweet new boy! - Josh & Anna.”
Anna, 29, and Josh are already parents to four children: Mackynzie, 7, Michael, 5, Marcus, 4, and Meredith, 2. Ahead of their fifth child’s arrival, the family celebrated Marcus’ birthday in June.Duggar Family Photo Album
