Counting On: John David And His Wife Abbie Are Expecting Their First
In the new TLC clip, the couple are working on party plans. In the clip, Abbie reveals that she and John know the sex of the baby. But, it’s a secret from the rest of the family until the sex revelation party.
Abbie Duggar’s baking a variety of desserts with her mother. They’re making pink and blue cupcakes, as well as pink and blue saltines. Abbie explains that she and John referred to the baby by gender, but they have to be careful because Abbie’s parents are in town now. Abbie doesn’t want to break the news to her mom before the rest of the family finds out at the party.
Meanwhile, John is working with his brothers and Abbie’s father to get the plane ready for the announcement. The men are attaching the numbers to the bottom of the plane. This all has to do with the revelation plan. In the Counting On clip, John Duggar explains that each guest will have a pink or blue “boarding pass”.
When the plane passes, guests will have to compare the numbers on the boarding pass with the numbers on the underside of the plane. The plane will pass several times. On the last flight, the guest with the corresponding number will hold the boarding card with the color assigned to the child’s gender.
