Update: In an appearance this morning on The Today Show, the Duggar family revealed that the new baby is a girl. Not surprisingly, they also shared that they will continue on the name theme, meaning their new daughter will have a ‘J’ moniker as well.

Their new reality series, 17 Kids and Counting, premieres tonight on TLC at 10 p.m.

Michelle, 41, is currently six weeks along in her pregnancy and due on New Year’s Day.  Michelle joked,

We’ve had three in January, three in December. Those two months are a busy time for us.
