Jessa Duggar Seewald and her husband Ben made a huge announcement today. They have a baby on the way! This is the third child for the couple. They already have two little boys Spurgeon Elliot, 3, and Henry Wilberforce, 23 months. At this time, Jessa and Ben do not know if they are having a boy or a girl yet.
The couple gave a statement to People about the pregnancy. They seem really excited. Here is what Jessa had to say about being pregnant.
“We are overjoyed that God has blessed us with a baby, due late this Spring! From the day we found out we were expecting, we both guessed boy, and if our predictions are right then we already have a ton the clothing and accessories ready to pass down! At the same time, we would absolutely love it if we found out we were having a girl — though we’ve joked that we’d be starting from square one and might have to learn a few things.”
Ben talks about adding another child
Ben Seewald went on to talk about it. He said that their older son Spurgeon understands and is really excited. Henry, the younger son, doesn’t understand what is going on at all just yet. Ben said they are looking forward to seeing their little boys meet their new sibling.
Jessa Duggar Seewald has made it very clear that she wants a large family. She also doesn’t plan to have them all on her own, though. Jessa and Ben have talked a lot about hoping to adopt in the future. So far, that plan hasn’t happened, but another baby is on the way. It will be interesting to see how many children this couple ends up with and if they have 19 like Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar.
