Josh and Anna Duggar are just weeks away from welcoming their fourth baby, and while the couple has revealed the child’s gender, they haven’t been so open when it comes to revealing the little girl’s name. Immediately after the premiere of the couple’s gender-reveal party episode on TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” Tuesday, Josh took to social media to tease the child’s moniker.
Josh, 27, illustrated a post on Twitter with a personal snapshot of the decorations used during the gender-reveal celebration at the Arkansas home of his parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar:

His expectant wife Anna, 26, wasn’t any closer to revealing the baby’s name on Twitter Tuesday. The reality-television star tweeted only about her excitement over the gender-reveal episode.

Although the couple did not release their child’s name, Josh has discussed the topic with the media in recent months. “We are close to announcing the name, but haven’t yet,” he told People in March.
While it appears “19 Kids and Counting” viewers will have to wait until the baby’s June due date to learn her name, Josh has revealed they will most likely continue the “M” trend. As most Duggar family fans are aware, the couple has a daughter, Mackynzie, 5, and two sons Michael, 3, and Marcus, 1. “We are likely going down the same path. But we’ll just have to wait and see,” Josh said.
When Anna goes into labor next month, she will not give birth in Arkansas. Anna and Josh, who relocated to Washington in 2013, have plans to welcome their fourth baby with the help of a midwifery group at an East Coast birthing center.
As for whether this is the couple’s last child, Josh recently divulged that he and his wife of seven years don’t have plans to compete with his parents’ impressive brood of 19. “I’ve done the math, and there is no way we can have 20 kids that I can figure,” Josh told People. “But the reason most people don’t have a large family is because they feel the financial pressures. It’s tough to have so many kids in today’s world.”
“19 Kids and Counting” is shown on TLC Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EDT. What do you think Josh and Anna will name their new little one? Share your predictions in the comments section below!
