Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald’s little family is growing! The Counting On couple announced Thursday, February 18 that they are having another baby. This is the fourth baby for the couple. The baby will join Spurgeon, 5, Henry, 4, and Ivy, 1.
Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald expecting
On Thursday, the news broke that Jessa and Ben are having their fourth child. Jessa and Ben spoke with Entertainment Tonight. They said:
“After the heartbreaking loss of a baby last year, we’re overjoyed to share that another little Seewald is on the way! The pregnancy is going smoothly, and both baby and Jessa are doing well. We are so grateful to God for the precious gift of a new life! The kids are delighted, and we can hardly wait to welcome this little one into our arms this summer.”
In an exclusive video from TLC, Jessa explains that Ivy doesn’t quite understand what’s going on yet. She says, “Spurgeon and Henry are very excited. They understand. We have little pregnancy apps on my phone that we look at and they get to see updates of the baby’s progress and growth.”
In their previous pregnancies, Ben and Jessa have kept their baby’s gender a secret. They typically keep it between themselves and only reveal the baby’s gender once they are born. But this time, they are considering telling Spurgeon and Henry the baby’s gender too. It will be interesting to see if the two little boys can keep it a secret.
Are any other Duggars pregnant?
Currently, only one other Duggar woman has announced she’s expecting. Kendra Duggar is pregnant with her third child with Joe Duggar. That baby should be born very soon.
There are rumors that Anna Duggar is expecting her seventh child with Josh Duggar. But that hasn’t been confirmed yet, so it’s unclear if she is actually pregnant.
In the Duggar family, it seems like someone is always expecting. So, it’s only a matter of time before another woman announces a pregnancy.
