Exciting news! Josiah and Lauren Duggar are having a baby! The two are thrilled to be expecting again after experiencing a miscarriage during their first pregnancy.
"God’s faithfulness to us in our most difficult moments has sustained us and brought us such love and comfort." says the couple. "We cannot begin to tell you how much we are looking forward to holding this baby in our arms this fall. Every good and perfect gift is from above and we are looking forward to this new season of parenting together!”
They shared the good news with a sign reading "Rainbow After the Storm. Baby #2" as a reference to their first pregnancy, as babies born after a loss are often called "rainbow babies"
They opened up about their miscarriage last season on Counting On, and Lauren took to her Instagram to thank fans for their support and for sharing their own stories.
"It’s easy to share those happy times in our lives," she wrote, "but sharing something hard, like losing a baby can be like putting salt to a wound. I know by y’all sharing your stories it has not only helped me, but many other women who have gone through the same trials."
