The Duggar family is evening up, RadarOnline.com has learned.

In a video posted online, Josh Duggar and Anna Duggar revealed they are set to welcome a daughter later this fall.

This will be the sixth child for the couple, who are already parents to two daughters Mackenzie, 9, and Meredith, 3, and three sons Michael, 8, Marcus, 6, and Mason 1.

“This is the 6th gender reveal for our little family and it (sic) always so exciting!” Anna shared on Instagram. “Each child God has given us is unique and special — we all look forward to the arrival of our daughter/sister this fall!”

Anna then shared a special story about her first gender reveal, and the unique role Grandma Mary Duggar had in not only making it happen, but also creating a new tradition.

“This morning Jessa sent over an article which mentioned our first gender reveal with Mackynzie on the Today Show as something that helped popularize gender reveal cakes 10 years ago,” Anna shared. “A little behind the scenes story: When I was expecting Kynzie, Grandma Duggar excitedly told me of a 'new trend' that featured baking a gender reveal cake."

Grandma Mary asked if she could bake one for the expecting parents. Once producers of their reality show heard about the idea, it blew up!

Buddy the Cake Boss ended up baking the first gender reveal cake for us,” Anna remembered. “We were thrilled to cut into our pink cake with Meredith Vieira in NYC.”

Little did the Duggars realize they were ahead of a baby reveal trend that would soon become almost mandatory for many families.

“Grandma was the one who sparked this special tradition for our family and it sounds like a lot of other families have enjoyed the idea over the years as well,” Anna wrote.

It was a touching tribute to the late 78-year-old, who as Radar readers know, possibly drowned in her swimming pool on June 9.

“With Grandma’s passing last week, this 6th gender reveal is a reminder of her love,” Anna concluded in her Instagram post. “I’m so glad we were able to share the news of our third little girl with Great-Grandma before she went to be with Jesus!”

Anna made no mention of her husband’s legacy of scandals. As Radar readers know, Josh, 31, was exposed as a child molester in 2015. Police documents showed that the disgraced oldest Duggar child fondled five minor females in Jim Bob and Michelle’s family home, four of which were his sisters.

The horrific sex scandal only got worse after Josh was busted in a salacious cheating scandal and admitted he was going to therapy for a porn addiction.
