Since Counting On fans know, Abbie Duggar, John David Duggar’s wife, is pregnant with the couple’s first child.
Based on Us Weekly, who published a clip out of Counting On’s Dec.
17 incident, Abbie was” excited” to inform her sisters-in-law concerning the happy news, but she was also” nervous” to determine how they’d react.
Abbie didn’t pick any old occasion to tell her family the fantastic news, she told her sisters-in-law, Kendra Duggar, Anna Duggar, Joy-Anna Duggar Forsyth, and Lauren Duggar, that were all pregnant, through a joint pregnancy photoshoot.
(22u was also a part of the shoot along with her newborn Ivy in tow.)
“I had been nervous and excited to disclose the news,” she explained in a confessional during the episode.
“I was very shaky, [thinking], ‘How are they likely to respond’”
Abbie waited until she was eight weeks along to tell her sisters-in-law.
When a car pulled up, in the clip, the ladies were in the middle of their outdoor shoot.
Some of those Duggars suspected that Jinger Duggar Vuolo was at the backseat of the car, it was really Abbie who emerged.
“Hey girls, can I combine your shoot?” She asked, to the surprise, and delight of everyone.
“Is that why you are not feeling great?” As everybody went to adopt Abbie Joy-Anna asked.
“I barely made it [here],” Abbie clarified.
“I couldn’t wait for all to understand.
I was like, I need some advice.’
… I had been at urgent care for a UTI [if ] they were like,’ Oh, by the way, you are pregnant’ I was like,’ What?’”
Of course, everyone was so thrilled to hear Abbie’s exciting news, which just made the moment more special to its mom-to-be.
“The response from the women was lots of fun,” Abbie said in her confessional.
“They really were surprised, I believe, and really, very excited for [John David Duggar and I].”
Abbie and John David first disclosed that they were anticipating on Aug. 1. The few got inventive by participating in a photoshoot.
“We are on Cloud 9 about welcoming our very own little Duggar into the world!!!” Instagram was written on by them.
“It is actually amazing to think about becoming parents and having our child to increase.
We’re grateful that God has blessed us with this brand new life and we anticipate taking on this new adventure!”
They’re set to welcome their first child, a woman, in January.
