"The next Dillard baby is a boy! We're so excited," she and Dillard said in the clip. "We're really excited about having another son, and I know that Israel and this little one will be best friends."

"My pregnancy so far -- I had morning sickness in the first trimester and now I'm feeling a lot better in my second trimester," Duggar added. "Thank y'all for your well wishes, and we're so excited about this new little blessing from God."

Duggar and Dillard are already parents to 21-month-old son Israel. The couple, who married in 2014, said in an interview with People in December that the new baby is due in July.

"We are so excited to be expecting Dillard baby #2!" the pair gushed at the time. "Children really are a wonderful blessing from God."
