Jill Duggar and husband Derick Dillard have revealed whether they are expecting a baby boy or girl.
The couple revealed in a Monday, January 30 video on TLC's website that they have another son on the way.
"The next Dillard baby is a boy," the happy parents jointly revealed in the video clip.
Duggar, 25, and Dillard, 27, already have a 21-month-old son Israel.
"Israel didn't really understand what was happening," Dillard continued, "but he's just excited because other people are excited, so he's just excited about his new little baby brother."
"We're really excited about having another son," Duggar added.
"I know that Israel and this little one will be best friends... Our pregnancy so far, I had morning sickness in the first trimester and now I'm feeling a lot better in my second trimester. Thank y'all for your well-wishes. We're so excited about this new blessing from God."
The pair's second child is due in July. Duggar and Dillard just announced last month they are expecting Baby No 2.
"Both of us want as many kids as God will give us," Duggar told ABC at the time. "My parents have kept popping them out, so we'll see how [our] fertility is! We'll just see what God brings along and it's exciting."
Duggar and Dillard began dating in November 2013 and got engaged in April 2014. They tied the knot in June 2014 and welcomed Israel in April 2015.
Ironically, Duggar's younger sister Jessa Duggar and husband Ben Seewald announced in August 2016 they are expecting their second child as well, a sibling for Spurgeon who is due next month.
The girls' reality show, Counting On, currently airs on Monday nights at 9PM ET/PT on TLC.
