The eldest son of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar will be taking over as executive director of the Family Research Council's FRC Action group in Washington, D.C.

"It should be a lot of fun, and I really look forward to it," Josh Duggar, of TLC's "19 Kids and Counting," said Monday. "I'm really so grateful for the opportunity ... I pray that I can continue to serve there in that capacity."

Speaking on his "Washington Watch" show, FRC President Tony Perkins expressed confidence that Duggar, who has 18 younger siblings, could handle the position.

"I think helping with all the logistics of the family of 19, certainly you are going to be handling campaigns and political activities ... should be a breeze," Perkins said.

The news comes shortly after Duggar and his wife, Anna, welcomed their third son into the world.

"We want to congratulate Josh and Anna Duggar on the birth of Marcus," Perkins said in a statement Monday.

"They have been an inspiration to millions of Americans who regularly tune in to see the Duggar family's show," he said. "All of us at Family Research Council have long appreciated their devotion to the pro-family movement."

"E! Online" reports that Duggar and his family are expected to relocate to the nation's capital between now and the end of June.
