She also took to Instagram to share the good news along with a photo of her and Josiah.

We are so thrilled to announce that we are having………………..a GIRL!!! Baby girl, you are already so loved and a joy to our family! Your fingers are small but you already have your daddy’s wrapped around them and you will forever have mommy’s heart! God is so kind to give us you💖, she wrote.

According to US Weekly, the couple had a gender reveal party for family and friends. Balloons filled with white, pink or blue confetti were handed out. Guests would pop the balloons and the last balloon revealed the color pink.

In February, Josiah (22) and Lauren (20) shared the news of their devastating miscarriage on their reality series Counting On.

“I wasn’t feeling well,” recalls Lauren, who was 19-years-old at the time. “I was cramping really, really bad, which was quite strange because I normally don’t. I was thinking maybe I had something that had gluten in it. It was late at night and I went to use the restroom and there was the baby. Gone. I couldn’t believe it and I was hoping it wasn’t true.”

But soon after the couple was able to share the happy news that they were expecting again.

Congratulations to the Duggar family.
