The announcement of their 7th child together comes just two weeks before the 33-year-old dad’s pornography trial is scheduled to begin.

The Counting On alum is expected to appear in court on Tuesday, November 30, where he could potentially be sentenced to several years behind bars.

In April, the reality star was arrested and charged with two counts of receiving and possessing child pornography, which he later pleaded not guilty to.

He was released from jail a week after his arrest and was granted unlimited contact with his children, as long as his wife is present for the visitations. He is not allowed to visit with any of his nieces and nephews or other minor children as he awaits the trial scheduled for later this month.

As OK! previously reported, prosecutors on the case want the jury to consider the allegations against Josh from the 2006 police report that claimed he molested five underaged girls, including four of his sisters.

“The defendant attempted to and did commit a crime as defined by Arkansas state law involving contact between any part of the defendant’s body and a child’s genitals or anus — namely, sexual assault in the second degree,” the newly filed motion stated.

While the TLC star was never legally charged with sexual assault for his alleged actions against other minor children, the prosecutors plan to introduce evidence that “Duggar as investigated for, admitted to, and received counseling for touching and sexually molesting multiple minor females, including at least one instance involving the digital penetration of a prepubescent minor.”

The judge on the case has yet to rule on allowing the evidence which prosecutors believe prove “motive” and “lack of mistake” amid the current pornography charges.
