The Duggar family just keeps getting bigger, with another baby on the way for the famous reality TV clan's oldest child.

Josh and Anna Duggar shared the "exciting" news with People magazine that they are expecting their third child. Josh, 25, is part of the Duggar family featured on TLC's "19 Kids and Counting."

Anna, 24, had taken a pregnancy test while the family was visiting Asia during filming of the show and the test came back negative. "I thought for sure I was pregnant and so I was a little disappointed" Anna told People. "But two weeks later, I found out I was pregnant."

Josh's father, Jim Bob, said he was thrilled with the news. "It is neat to see their family expanding. I remember those days when Michelle and I went from one to three because we had Josh and then we had twins. It is a great start."

Josh said that after his parents experienced a miscarriage in 2011, he hoped for a happy outcome for this pregnancy. "With my mom's last pregnancy there are questions and the fear of every expectant parent that this could end. There is always some sort of risk with pregnancy and you never really know," he said.
