Back-to-back! Joe, Kendra Duggar expecting second child

Round two! Joe Duggar and Kendra Duggar (née Caldwell) welcomed their son, Garrett, in June 2018, and the Counting On couple are now expecting their second child.

“We are ready to double the fun at our house!” Joe and Kendra told Us Weekly exclusively on Thursday, April 11. “Being parents has already proven to be a greater joy than we had hoped or imagined. We love getting to parent together and are loving every moment and milestone. We are very happy that our little family will welcome a new addition later this year. Children really are a blessing from God!”

Kendra’s sister-in-law Jessa Seewald (née Duggar) is also pregnant. The Arkansas native already shares Spurgeon, 3, and Henry, 2, with her husband, Ben Seewald. “We are overjoyed that God has blessed us with a baby, due later this Spring,” Jessa told Us in January.

Part 2 of the ugly sweater party! . We ate way too much Italian dinner, then dove into desserts that were part of a baking competition. Next was a white elephant gift exchange, and then board games and a movie to bring the evening to an end.

When Kendra and Joe’s first child, Garrett, now 10 months, arrived, the new parents told Us in a statement, “No matter how many times we’ve experienced the joy of babies born in our families, there’s nothing comparable to the joy in our hearts today! Children truly are a gift from God. We are so thankful for his safe arrival and this new journey as parents.”

The reality stars announced that they were expecting in December 2017, revealing their baby’s gender to Usexclusively two months later.

“Wow! We are so happy to learn that our firstborn is a boy!” the TLC personalities told Us at the time. “Our minds are already racing toward all the future memories to be made with this little guy! Most of all, we are already asking God to bless him and help us grow him into a loving and faithful follower of Christ!”

It’s no surprise that the couple, who tied the knot in 2017, had plans to expand their family further.

“We would love to have more kids if the Lord blesses us,” Kendra exclusively told Us in March 2018. “As many as He wants to give us, we’ll be happy to take them.”

Counting On season 4 airs on TLC Mondays at 9 p.m. ET.

Happy Resurrection Sunday! 💐 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” 1 Peter 1:3
I feel like the most blessed guy on earth 🌎... Lauren said YES! God definitely opened our eyes in his perfect timing to show us how we complete each other. The more time I spend with Lauren the more I realize how I can't live without her. There's no one else I'd rather spend my days and grow old with! #engaged #weddingplanningbegins
Anyone who knows me knows that I’ve always been a talker. ☺️ But now I love being a listener, too. ❤️ #facetimewiththebest
No place I’d rather be. #withyou
I’m really enjoying the beauty in New Zealand. 😍 Oh, and the landscape is pretty nice too I guess. 😉 #mygirl #lauren
On second thought, it is a little warm out to be wearing a 3-piece suit! #silverdollarcity
