The Duggar family is counting on!

Josh Duggar and Anna Duggar are expecting baby no. 6. In a statement shared to their family website, Josh's parents share, "We are so happy for Josh & Anna, expecting their 6th child and our 16th grandchild!" Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are overjoyed to learn they are becoming grandparents yet again, especially considering how highly they think of Anna. The parents, who have 19 kids, say that Anna is "one of the most amazing women in the world."

"Anna & Josh are good parents and it is going to be neat to see what God does with each one of their children's lives," the grandparents add.

The new baby will join siblings MackenzieMichaelMarcusMeredith and Mason, and will likely have a name beginning with the letter "M" too.

It's been nearly eight months since Josh and Anna welcomed their youngest son Mason in September. 

The little one was a welcome surprise in light of the drama surrounding their family, particularly in the wake of Josh's cheating scandal and other controversies. "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," the parents shared in a statement about the pregnancy. "Beauty comes from ashes and we cannot wait to see and kiss the face of this sweet new boy!"

And soon enough there will be another baby in the family to shower with affection!
