Josh and Anna Duggar are preparing for their sixth child by having a gender reveal to find out if they are welcoming another boy or girl.
The couple is already parents to three sons, Marcus, Michael, and Mason, as well as two daughters, Mackenzie and Meredith. They had their children front and center to determine if they were getting a little brother or sister.
Anna shared the entire reveal on Instagram, including the happy screams as the sex of the baby was revealed. One of the couple’s sons poured water over a gold beehive, which then starts pouring out either blue or pink to reveal the gender of the baby.
In the case of the Duggar’s, the foam was pink. Yes, the formerly estranged couple is adding another girl to their family.
“It’s a girl!” squealed all the kids as soon as the foam started pouring out.
The expectant mother captioned the video with a lengthy message sharing the excitement over having a daughter, as well as reminiscing about Mackenzie’s gender reveal on the Today Show ten years ago.
“This is the 6th gender reveal for our little family, and it always so exciting! Each child God has given us is unique and special — we all look forward to the arrival of our daughter/sister this fall,” Anna began her message.
She went on to pay tribute to Josh’s grandmother, Mary Duggar, who tragically passed away from drowning last week. Anna also revealed it was Grandma Duggar that gave them the idea to do a gender reveal when they were expecting Mackenzie.
“When I was expecting Kynzie, Grandma Duggar excitedly told me of a ‘new trend’ that featured baking a gender reveal cake. Grandma asked if she and Amy could bake one for us?!?! Josh and I loved the idea, and that was our plan…until our producers heard about the idea and it grew quite a bit! Buddy the Cake Boss [Valastro] ended up baking the first gender reveal cake for us!” continued the post.

IT’S A… 🥁 This is the 6th gender reveal for our little family and it always so exciting! Each child God has given us is unique and special — we all look forward to the arrival of our daughter / sister this fall! 🎀🍁🍂 This morning Jessa sent over an article which mentioned our first gender reveal with Mackynzie on the Today Show as something that helped popularize gender reveal cakes 10 years ago. 🍰 (while it’s hard to believe it’s been that long, it also reminded us to get this video posted! 🙈) A little behind the scenes story: When I was expecting Kynzie, Grandma Duggar excitedly told me of a “new trend” that featured baking a gender reveal cake. Grandma asked if she and Amy could bake one for us?!?! Josh and I loved the idea and that was our plan…until our producers heard about the idea and it grew quite a bit! Buddy the Cake Boss ended up baking the first gender reveal cake for us! We were thrilled to cut into our pink cake with Meredith Vieira in NYC. All that to say, Grandma was the one who sparked this special tradition for our family and it sounds like a lot of other families have enjoyed the idea over the years as well! With Grandma’s passing last week, this 6th gender reveal is a reminder of her love — I’m so glad we were able to share the news of our third little girl with Great-Grandma before she went to be with Jesus! #littleduggars
Come the fall, Josh and Anna Duggar will have the same number of boys and girls in their family. The couple shared their gender reveal on Instagram today announcing they will welcome another daughter to their clan.
It has been four years since Anna and Josh’s lives were turned upside down by his cheating and sex addiction scandal. Through rehab and marital counseling, the couple is stronger than ever!
The Duggar’s daughter this fall will be their second child since they endured their difficult time.
