“This time of the year, there’s so many things we’re thankful for,” Josh says in the video, surrounded by his pregnant wife and three children. “From my sisters getting proposed to and married, to all the fans who are watching at home.”

“I’m having a lot of morning sickness so it is difficult, but it’s good because I know good things are happening,” Anna continued. “After Ben and Jessa’s wedding, we were still visiting with the family in Arkansas, and that was really exciting to get to share with the family the exciting news.”
