KENDRA Duggar’s mother is pregnant with her ninth child at the same time her daughter is expecting her third baby.
Christina Caldwell, 41, will give birth in May, while Joe Duggar’s 22-year-old wife will welcome her baby in February.
Taking to Instagram on Monday, Christina and husband Paul announced the big news.
“We’re expecting! May 2021,” they wrote.
Christina held a card that read “baby coming soon,” while Paul stood behind her.
Their youngest son, Isaiah, 2, was propped on his shoulders.
Christina and Paul, who are also Baptist like the Duggars, already have eight children.
Kendra is the oldest of the Caldwell clan, followed by Lauren, 20, Micah, 16, Nathan, 13, Timothy, 11, Olivia, 10, Jesiah, 5, and Isaiah.
Christina’s surprise news comes just two months after Kendra and her husband Joe announced they were also expecting.
The couple revealed to PEOPLE in August: “We are so excited to announce that we have a tie-breaker coming in February. Baby #3 is on the way!”
The Counting On stars continued: “We are so excited to see Garrett and Addison’s reaction when they meet the new baby.
“Garrett has already been such a loving big brother to Addison and we look forward to Addison’s reaction to a life-size baby doll.
“Life is full of surprises and we’re thrilled that it is a sweet baby that surprises us this time!”
These news comes just a few months after Kendra gave birth to their youngest daughter, Addison, back in November 2019.
Joe, 26, and Kendra are also parents to Garrett, who was born in June 2018.
Joseph and Kendra’s sister Jinger Duggar is also expecting a baby.
Jinger announced she was pregnant with her second child after suffering a miscarriage last year.
Sister Joy-Anna Duggar recently gave birth to her own rainbow baby back in August.
