Holding a onesie which read, "Baby passenger on board" the pair announced to the world that they will be welcoming a little one soon. "We are on Cloud 9 about welcoming our own little Duggar into the world!!!" they wrote alongside the announcement. 

"It is amazing to think about being parents and having our child to raise. We are thankful that God has blessed us with this new life and we look forward to taking on this new adventure!" they continued. Abbie and David first broke the news about pregnancy to Jenna Duggar.
