Jedidiah Duggar, the younger brother of disgraced reality star Josh Duggar, has announced his wife Katey's pregnancy barely four months after they walked down the aisle. Jed Duggar, 22, and his wife Katey Nakatsu, 23, shared a series of romantic photos on Instagram where they can be seen kissing each other while holding a sign that reads "And Then There Were 3. Baby Duggar Spring '22."

Duggar, a former TV star of TLC show 'Counting On', captioned the photos with a joke, "She tested positive, but not for Covid." The couple further announced the news in a ten-minute video on YouTube. The heads of the Duggar family, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar were spotted at Jed Duggar's baby reveal — for the first time since the cancellation of the TLC show. The popular reality series was scrapped a few months back in the wake of Josh Duggar's child pornography scandal.

In the baby reveal video, the young Duggar couple can be seen driving together, when Katey Nakatsu shared, "We picked up a pregnancy test. I have been feeling kinda funny for the past few weeks. I have been having cramping, bloating, just different things that have been odd. I need to take a pregnancy test. If it's negative, we should go to a doctor and make sure everything is okay."

Unable to seemingly contain his excitement, Jed Duggar chimed in, "It was positive! We having a baby!" The couple also revealed that Katey had taken the test at a restroom in Walmart and they were "screaming in the parking lot" after learning the results. 

Jed and Katey tied the knot on April 4, 2021, after a year-long courtship. However, unlike the family's norm of announcing their courtship followed by an elaborate proposal, Jed Duggar and Katey Nakatsu opted for a low-key relationship. They kept their dating life private since 2020, only revealing the details at the time of their wedding. 


The pair got engaged on Valentine's Day 2021 after Jed proposed while they were enjoying smores by a winter fire. They got married barely seven weeks after the engagement. Sharing the update about their wedding, Jed wrote, "For a long time, I have prayed for my future spouse, not knowing who that person would be. God answered my prayers far beyond what I could have ever imagined in Katey [Nakatsu]." He added, "I’m so grateful God brought Katey into my life and excited to share with you all that today she became my wife! Katey, the thought of sharing the rest of my life with you makes me the happiest man in the world! I love you so much!!” The newlywed Duggars spent their honeymoon at the seaside as they regularly shared steamy snaps of them kissing and embracing. 


Meanwhile, family supremos Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar announced, "Jed and Katey have enjoyed a quiet, low-key relationship that has allowed them to prepare for a beautiful life together. Congrats to this wonderful couple on their wedding day! We are excited to see how their story continues to unfold in the future. Jed, we are so pleased with the man you’ve become, and Katey, we are absolutely delighted that you have joined the family!”


It is believed that Katey has a Solo Flight certificate, thereby making her a licensed pilot, though it is not known whether she is actively employed. It is also unclear how far along Katey is in the pregnancy at the moment, though it is believed to be in the initial stages.
