The Herbert family is expanding again as Abbie Herbert and Josh Herbert are expecting their second baby.
On Thursday, September 1, 2022, Abbie finally announced her second pregnancy after weeks of teasing about a big announcement. The married couple revealed the happy news via a joint Instagram post and their joint YouTube channel.
On their joint Instagram post, they posted some exclusive pictures taken during their pregnancy announcement photoshoot for People Magazine. In the photographs, Abbie and Josh were with their first child, daughter Poppy James Herbert, as they held the sonogram photos.
The second-time mother-to-be donned a black maxi dress while flaunting her growing baby bump. Additionally, her daughter matched her dress, but the only difference was that it was brown.
In the caption of the announcement post, they had written, “Baby Herbert #2 coming in 2023. We are so blessed to be growing our little family & can’t wait to bring you on this adventure with us!”
The TikTok stars also referred their well-wishers to check out their interview with People Magazine to learn what they had to say more about their second pregnancy. And if their fans could also see their YouTube video to see Abbie’s reaction to finding out about the pregnancy.
As for what they said during their interview with People, Abbie and Josh told the outlet that they were blessed and thankful to be growing their little family in 2023. “We can’t wait to meet our little bundle of joy and watch Poppy become the best big sister!” they added.
The duo’s YouTube video revealed that Abbie first took a pregnancy test on June 9, 2022, but she wasn’t pregnant then. When she took another test precisely a month later, it came out positive — she was expecting a second child.
“All the emotions are happening right now,” she said in the video while expressing multiple feelings like nervousness, happiness, crying with joy, and more. Additionally, she was walking back and forth in her bathroom while debating whether to look at the test or not.
“How am I going to tell Josh?” she added later. And the answer was to put their daughter to the task. She surprised her husband by asking him to close his eyes and giving her pregnancy test kit to her daughter. Josh’s reaction was left out for the second part of the video.
“To be continued… Thank you so much for your support. Love, the Herberts,” was written at the end of the video.
After the announcement, several friends and well-wishers took to the comment section to express their excitement. Fellow TikTok star and mother of three kids, Brooke Ashley Hall, wrote, “Congratulations on baby #2.”
“Yay! Congrats, babe! Blessings to you and your beautiful family,” commented another friend.
Furthermore, one Instagram user congratulated the couple while mentioning that they knew about the pregnancy as Abbie and Josh dragged their tease for “way too long.”
The expansion of the Herbert family comes around three months after Abbie suffered a miscarriage. She announced her pregnancy loss via her social media handles on May 10, 2022, in a video that documented her pregnancy journey before the unfortunate loss.
She said of the loss, “Unfortunately, this just wasn’t our time & God has a different plan for us. It’s been hard navigating this experience, but it’s only made us stronger. We will be here waiting for you baby #2. Whenever you are ready.”
As for Abbie and Josh, they first met in 2013 and only began dating in 2015. On January 2, 2018, she revealed Josh had proposed to her, leading to their engagement. And on July 19, 2019, they shared the wedding vows among friends and family.
