Kendra Duggar has a pretty great story to tell.
As any loyal follower of this famous family must know by now, Kendra and Joseph Duggar are expecting their second child at some point in the next several months.
The couple delivered this exciting piece of news to Us Weekly and its readers last Thursday.
“We are ready to double the fun at our house!” Joe and Kendra told this publication at the time, continuing as follows:
“Being parents has already proven to be a greater joy than we had hoped or imagined. We love getting to parent together and are loving every moment and milestone.
“We are very happy that our little family will welcome a new addition later this year. Children really are a blessing from God!”
These Duggars are already parents to a 10-month old son named Garrett.
But while we know how Joseph and Kendra are feeling about becoming parents yet again, we now also know how the latter dropped this baby bombshell on to her husband prior to announcing it to the world.
In a video made for TLC and released by the network, Joe explains that Kendra “just surprised me with the news that we’re expecting. I was really excited. She really surprised me good this time.”
But HOW, Joseph? How did Kendra go about surprising you?
As has been documented on Counting On Season 8, Joseph likes to lick his food bowls and plates clean.
It’s funny and it’s true. You can watch Counting On online to catch up on the latest episodes and see what we mean.
Aware of this trait of her husband’s, Kendra apparently took advantage of it in a very creative way.
The mother-to-be wrote “baby soon” on the bottom of one of Joseph’s plate. So when he finished his meal, after he scarfed down every last bite…
Joseph learned that Kendra was pregnant.
“I’m not necessarily an emotional type but I definitely am super thrilled that we’re going to be having another little one around the house,” Joe says in the footage below.
For her part, Kendra says that she was “at first really shocked” when discovered she was expecting again.
(During multiple recent Counting On episodes, Kendra said she wanted a another child, yes, but that she also wanted to wait a little bit.)
Joe adds that he hopes the new baby is like Kendra and has a “sweet personality.”
