Is Joshua Duggar, the oldest of the 18 children featured on TLC's 18 Kids and Counting, looking to follow his parents' example? Just a few months after their September 2008 wedding, Joshua and his wife, Anna, are expecting their first child.

Until now, the pair has been in the dark about the baby's sex, but Meredith Vieira revealed what they are preparing for on the Today Show Monday morning. The show provided a cake, telling Joshua and Anna that the interior color would reveal whether they were expecting a boy or a girl.

"I have had a feeling this whole time it's going to be a girl," Joshua told Meredith, moments before cutting the cake. "So now I'm for sure that it's a boy."

Moments later, as his parents and 17 siblings watched from home, Joshua sliced into a bright pink cake, indicating that the Duggars are expecting a baby girl!

Don't expect 18 new Duggars to be running around anytime soon, though. "We'd be happy with two or three," Joshua laughed. "I think that children are a blessing though and when you raise them right, they can be a great blessing."
