Jedidiah and Katey wed in a traditional Duggar-style wedding in April 2021.
The expectant mother’s half-brother, Reed, who attended the affair, spoke to “Without a Crystal Ball” about the big day.
“It was a relaxed thing. When I think of a wedding, I think ‘Woo, Party, Open Bar!'” he revealed.
“There was no alcohol and no dancing. It was short and sweet. It was pretty much like, vows and we ate.”
THE BABY IS ON THE WAY
Just a few months later, the couple announced that they were expecting their first child together.
In September 2021, the couple shared the pregnancy news in a sweet Instagram post.
Jed and Katey posted a photo of themselves pursing their lips while holding a word board in front of them.
They captioned the post: “She tested positive but not for Covid.”
In the first photo from the set, Katey held up a sign that read, “And then there were 3.”
The sign mentioned that their “Baby Duggar” would be due sometime in the spring.
During their nearly 10-minute video, the two appeared to be driving together at night.
Katey said: “We did a pregnancy test. I’ve been feeling kind of weird the past few weeks. I had cramps, bloating, just different things that were weird.
“I have to take a pregnancy test. If it’s negative, we should go to a doctor and make sure everything is ok.”
Jed then yelled at the camera: “It was positive! We’re having a baby!”
Then in January, Jed and Katey announced the gender of their baby.
The couple took to their joint Instagram account to share the news and posted two black and white stills from their gender reveal party.
Much of the Duggar family appeared to have attended the event, which was held at a local park.
The family were shown sharing a meal and guessing at the child’s gender ahead of the unveiling.
In the first of two photos, Jed and Katey were shown smiling in what appeared to be moments after learning what they had.
The second photo showed Jed punching at something and throwing dust into the air.
They captioned the post, “And our baby’s gender is…” and directed fans to a YouTube video where they shared all the details.
Joe Duggar, John Duggar, Abbie Burnett, Jana Duggar and other members of the famous family were in attendance.
During the party, the group ate themed snacks and chose sides before gathering to find out the gender once and for all.
After the baby was confirmed to be a boy, someone was heard yelling, “I knew it!” as Jed and Katey kissed.
