The Duggar family is growing again.

Anna Duggar revealed on Friday that she is pregnant and expecting her sixth child with husband Josh Duggar. The baby is due this fall.

“We are so excited to announce that we are expecting a new little one! As we watch our children grow and thrive — we look forward to baby six joining us this fall! #littleduggars,” Anna captioned the Instagram post.

In the two videos shared to social media, both Anna and Josh give their children a series of cut out paper letters, which they together spell out to read, “New baby coming this fall.”

“Mommy’s having a baby!” Anna, 30, says to her children, who squeal and scream in excitement.

“Mommy’s going to have a baby!” says Josh, 31.

The couple, who wed on Sept. 26, 2008, share five children: Mackynzie, 9, Michael, 7, Marcus, 5, Meredith, 3, and 19-month-old Mason.

In July, Anna shared a series of family photos to Instagram, where she reflected on the past decade of life and the “wonderful adventure” that it has been.

“June was an exciting month for our family: Marcus, Michael and I are are officially a year older + Josh and I celebrated our 10 year engagement anniversary!” she wrote in the caption.

“The past 10 years have been a wonderful adventure,” she continued. “So thankful for God’s redeeming grace and His blessings to us along the way, especially our 5 M’s!”

In addition to multiple photos of the Duggar children, Anna also shared a smiling photo of Josh kissing her forehead.

The past decade has been filled with ups and downs for the couple, whose marriage was rocked by scandal in 2015. Following Josh’s extended stay at a faith-based rehabilitation center, the pair entered marriage counseling following their difficult year.

Nearly two years later, in March 2017, Josh and Anna announced the happy news that they were expecting their fifth child.

“For nearly the last two years, we have quietly worked to save our marriage, focus on our children, and rebuild our lives together as a family. Doing so is never easy after a breach of trust. We’ve learned that a life of faith and rebuilding a life together is simply done one day at a time,” they wrote in a joint statement. “As we continue our journey as a family and rebuild our lives, we are delighted to share with you that we are expecting a new baby boy later this year. Beauty comes from ashes and we cannot wait to see and kiss the face of this sweet new boy!”

In September 2017, the couple welcomed son Mason Garrett.

“The entire family is ecstatic over the arrival of another beautiful blessing,” they wrote in a blog post announcing Mason’s birth. “We want to thank everyone for your prayers, kind words and well wishes.”
