Another happy addition – No. 4 – is on the way for 19 Kids & Counting stars Anna and Josh Duggar.

“I’m nine weeks pregnant, and having a lot of morning sickness,” Anna says in a first-look promotional video from TLC, sitting on a couch with her husband and surrounded by her three children, daughter Mackynzie, 5, son Michael, 3½, and son Marcus, 18 months.

Anna shared the couple’s big news via Twitter on Tuesday, noting, “We are so excited to announce we’re pregnant.” She added the hashtags #4andcounting and #BlessingfromTheLord.

The news caps an abundant year for the deeply religious family after the wedding of Anna’s sister Jill to Derick Dillard in June, and their announcement two months later that they were expecting – and it’s a boy.

The couple – who wed in 2008 – now live in Washington, D.C., where Josh is a lobbyist for the highly conservative and controversial Family Research Council, according to the Washington Post.

“Having a baby in D.C. is totally different,” Josh says, recalling the couple’s early lives together in Arkansas where much of the Duggar clan resides.

“There are so many questions we are trying to figure out now,” Anna says of devising a birth plan for baby No. 4. “Are we going to have a home birth, a hospital birth or a birthing center?”
