’19 Kids & Counting’ Recap: Anna Tells Josh She Wants More Babies Soon

Are there more Duggars on the way? If Josh’s wife, Anna, has it her way — then they will be welcoming their fourth child VERY soon.

On the Nov. 18 episode of 19 Kids & Counting, Josh Duggar and his family spend time in Chicago, Il. visiting his in-laws, Anna Duggar‘s sister, Priscilla Waller, and her small family. During their, Anna catches major baby fever and even takes a pregnancy test in hopes that she is carrying baby #4.

’19 Kids & Counting’s Anna & Josh Visit Family In Chicago

After a crazy road trip, Josh and Anna arrive in Chicago with their family with plenty of time to spare before the gender reveal party.

The party is for Anna’s sister, Priscilla Waller, and her husband, David, who are expecting their second child. Guests were asked to “vote” for which sex they hoped the baby would be by wearing either pink or blue to the party. So cute!

For the big reveal, Priscilla and David let their 1-year-old son, Paul, pull the tape off of a box that was filled with balloons. Once the box opened, a ton of pink balloons came flying out!

Even as the crowd cheered with joy, I don’t think anyone was more excited than Priscilla — even though she had worn blue to the party!

“I’m so excited because now I get to go shopping!” Priscilla joked, to which David laughed.

Duggars Go Sight-Seeing In Chi-Town

Once the big gender reveal was finally over and done with, Josh and Anna were not in a rush to go back home to Washington, D.C. just yet.

Instead, they decided to stick around so that the entire family — including Priscilla, David, and Paul — can head into downtown Chicago and do some sightseeing.

Their first stop? Willis Tower! Although David and Priscilla pick on Josh for making everyone take the RV into the city. Eek, not his best idea.

At the top of the Willis Tower all of the kids were able to experience stepping out onto the skydeck which is made of glass. However, Mackynzie wasn’t really into the idea of being able to see underneath her — and I don’t blame her!

Next up, the entire family learned how to make a deep dish Chicago-style pizza at David and Priscilla’s favorite restaurant. Fun!

To wrap up the sightseeing, the family split up into two groups: Anna and Priscilla in one, and David, Josh, and the four kids in another.

Josh & David Take On ‘Daddy Duty’

While Anna and Priscilla went shopping for baby clothes at a thrift store — “Buy used, save the difference!” — the dads took the kids to the hardware store so that they could stock up on some things before the family went camping together.

Even though the kids were without their mom’s supervision, both Josh and David did a pretty good job of keeping everyone in check. Good for you, dads!

During the camping trip, David and Josh head off to go fishing and spend some “manly” time together. Even though they did catch fish, Josh wasn’t allowed to keep the one he caught because it was too small. Oops! Thankfully, David caught a big enough fish to feed the family for the night.

After their trip, Anna has been bitten by the baby bug. Before they head home to Washington, D.C., Anna decides it’s time to take a pregnancy test to find out whether or not she’s carrying their fourth child.

When Anna comes out of the bathroom she tells Josh that they should look at the test together, so she cozies up next to him and slowly reveals the tiny little test in her hand. It’s negative.

Anna is definitely upset about it, but she hasn’t given up hope that they will have more children. Keep trying, Anna!

Tell us, HollywoodLifers — Do you think that Josh and Anna should have a fourth child together? Do you think they should have 19 like the Duggars? Comment below!
