The baby announcements in the Duggar family just keep coming. Back in January, Counting On stars Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald announced they were expecting baby number three. Then, earlier this month Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell told fans that baby number two is on the way. Now, Josh and Anna Duggar have just revealed that they are expecting their sixth child.
“We couldn’t be happier to share with the world that our family is growing by one this Fall. We continually stand amazed by God’s love, redemption, grace and blessings in our lives. Our entire little family is ecstatic!” the couple told Us Weekly.
Josh and Anna tied the knot in September 2008, and they are already the parents of Mackynzie, 9, Michael, 7, Marcus, 5, Meredith, 3, and Mason, 19 months.
This is the second baby for Josh and Anna since his 2015 molestation and cheating scandal that led to him losing his job as a Washington DC lobbyist for the Family Research Council and TLC canceling the original Duggar series 19 Kids & Counting.
The news of their growing family may explain why Josh and Anna recently listed their Arkansas home for sale. At the rate they’re going, the couple is going to need to build their own compound like Josh’s parents, Jim Bob and Michelle.
Josh has recently found himself involved in a real estate lawsuit after a man named Carl Echols claimed that his cousin, Edward L. Lewis, illegally sold Josh a piece of property that belonged to him. Echols says that he bought the property from Lewis in 2006 for $17,500, but then Lewis sold the 5-acre property to Josh in 2016 for $1,000 without his knowledge.
Echols says that he lives on the land, and has paid the property taxes for nearly a decade. He is now suing Duggar and his company, ALB Investments, LLC for quiet title. He says that Josh has never visited the property, and he also accuses the 30-year-old of never conducting a full title search. Echols is also suing Lewis for fraud and breach of contract.
As for Anna, the news of her sixth pregnancy comes just a couple of weeks after she posted a photo that revealed her shocking weight loss. Anna was unrecognizable in the pic, and she has lost her weight by hitting her walking goals.
Last month, she posted a pic of her daily walking log, showing that she had crushed her February goal of walking 50 miles.
New episodes of Counting On will return to TLC later this year.
