Joseph and Kendra originally announced that they were expecting their third child back in August. They are already parents to son Garrett David and daughter Addison Renee. According to PEOPLE, the couple said that their third child would be the "tie-breaker" when it came to the sexes of their three children. They stated at the time, "We are so excited to announce that we have a tie-breaker coming in February. Baby #3 is on the way! We are so excited to see Garrett and Addison's reaction when they meet the new baby. Garrett has already been such a loving big brother to Addison and we look forward to Addison's reaction to a life-size baby doll." Joseph and Kendra, who wed in September 2017, added, "Life is full of surprises and we're thrilled that it is a sweet baby that surprises us this time!"
A few months after they revealed that they had another child on the way, they held a gender reveal and announced that their third child would be a girl. On Instagram, Kendra and Joseph posed with their children and blew pink flower petals into the camera to indicate that they were having a girl. They said about the exciting update, "We are so excited to announce that our tiebreaker is a GIRL. The boys are outnumbered now! We are already in love with her and cannot wait to meet her!!! #tiebreaker #itsagirl."
