Catching Up with John and Abbie

Gracie Duggar is getting so big! Hear what the Counting On family has been up to so far in 2021.

The good news keeps on coming! Just a few weeks ago newlyweds John David and Abbie Duggar announced they were expecting their first child, and now they're thrilled to share they are having girl!

The couple learned the gender of the baby together, and brought John's twin sister Jana in on the secret so they could plan a surprise party for the whole family. They chose a "flight" theme with classic airplane snacks like peanuts and pretzels, and had guests take a boarding pass with a special flight number—one number for girl, and one number for boy!

For the big reveal, brother Jeremiah flew a plane overhead that revealed the winning flight number in giant vinyl letters, while confetti cannons on the ground sprayed pink streamers. Love is in the air indeed!
