Joseph and Kendra announced via Instagram on April 11 that they are expecting baby number two.
The little one will join Joseph and Kendra’s son, Garrett, who turns one on June 8.
When Jim Bob and Michelle re-posted the news, fans let their opinions be known in the comments section.
“I feel so sad for Kendra,” one follower wrote. “Kendra is still very much a child herself. The idea of her being a mother to two young children so close in age has me worried for physical and mental health.”
“I agree 100%,” said another. “Scary and sad. Hopefully one by one they will wake up,” added a fan.
Others wished Joe and Kendra, who will celebrate their second wedding anniversary in September, had waited before starting a family. “I love them and they are so cute, but take some time for each other. The courtship was so short and not a normal one. The kids still have so much to learn before bringing so many kids on board,” a fan wrote.
Some fans fully supported Joe and Kendra’s decision to have another child. “She is married and can have as many kids as they want,” a fan argued, while another said, “No one has the right to judge them on how many or how quick they have babies. Everyone does what they want.”
