Her husband added with a post of his own: “We are completely speechless, overly excited and ready for the next chapter as new parents!”

While the couple are “still traveling and doing stuff,” Duggar told Us exclusively on Tuesday that she is at the point in her pregnancy when she “wants to be nesting and setting up everything at home.”

For now, the mom-to-be is focusing on decorating her son’s nursery. “It’s black and white modern with wood,” she told Us. “It’s chic and stylish. We didn’t want baby colors. It’s bright blue, black and white. His name is Dax Ryan, so he’s going to come out in aviator sunglasses. We’re ready for a cool, stylish son.”

Even though Dax is still on the way, Duggar is already thinking about adding more babies to their brood. “We got to live our lives the way we wanted to for a while and now we can focus on building a family,” she told Us. “We only want two, maybe three, but we’re finally ready to start.”
