In the beginning of September, 23-year-old Joseph Duggar married Kendra Caldwell. The two got engaged at Joseph's sister's wedding last spring.

The couple got married at First Baptist Church in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. It was a joy-filled celebration with family and friends. After the wedding, Joseph Duggar told People Magazine about the special day. 

Duggar said, "It is an amazing feeling to be husband and wife. It's something that I've always dreamed of to have a wife and to raise a family in a way that honors the Lord. We are very excited to see what God has in the future for us."

Now, the couple's future is a little bit more mapped out. On Monday, the couple revealed to US Weekly that they are expecting their first child together. 

The Duggars said, "During this season that we are celebrating the birth of Christ, we are so excited to share with you that we are expecting the gift of a child ourselves!"

"Wow, it's so exciting!!!" they continued. "We've both always loved children and seen them as a real blessing from God. It's so surreal to think of being parents and having our own little one. We cannot wait to see this new baby!"

The "Counting On" stars announced that they were courting in March. A few months later, they were engaged. 2017 has been a big year for the couple including courting, an engagement, a wedding, and now, a pregnancy. 

Earlier this fall Joseph Duggar thanked his friends, family, and fans for their love during this exciting time in his life. 

He said, "We're so excited to be newlyweds now. We just want to thank all the fans for all your support and your encouragement to us. Y'all mean a lot."
