The couple was able to do so with the help of Joseph's brother,  John David Duggar who is an Arkansas constable and part-time officer with the Tontitown Police Department. In order to reveal the gender of the baby, Joseph and Kendra used tannerite mixed with blue-colored powder in an explosive and let the rest do the trick. Meanwhile, the Duggar family was seen standing about 20 yards behind John David. 

During the interview with the magazine, the couple expressed their joy upon finding out that their firstborn is a boy. “Wow! We are so happy to learn that our firstborn is a boy!”  the pair said. “Our minds are already racing toward all the future memories to be made with this little guy! Most of all, we are already asking God to bless him and help us grow him into a loving and faithful follower of Christ!”

The news about Kendra and Joseph about expecting their first child was confirmed in December. The couple had previously shared this exciting news about the pregnancy with US Weekly saying that they were looking forward to welcoming a new member into their family.

We’ve both always loved children and seen them as a real blessing from God. It’s so surreal to think of being parents and having our own little one. We cannot wait to see this new baby!”

Kendra even shared this happy news with all her fans on Instagram.
