If you follow the Duggar family, you'll know that all of the kids are growing up quickly. As someone who has watched the show from the start, it's so odd to see some of the older kids having families of their own!
The perfect example is Jessa Duggar, who I so vividly remember running around outside with her brother. Now, she's married to hubby Ben Seewald and has kids of her own! In 2017, Jessa gave birth to her second child, Henry Wilberforce, and the couple admitted that they had their hands full. With their other son Spurgeon Elliot also being under
“Right now we have two kids and there’s two of us, so it’s man-to-man coverage,” admitted Ben. “When we have more, we’ll have to switch it up to a zone defense!”
“It will be a little while since we just had a baby, but adopting and fostering to adopt is very much in our hearts,” Jessa added.
But now, just under two years after Henry was born, Jessa and Ben announced they are expecting their third child!
“We are overjoyed that God has blessed us with a baby, due late this Spring!” Jessa told People. “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.”
No matter if it's a boy or a girl, there's no doubt that he or she will have a ton of love from the family, even if the two older brothers don't really understand it yet.
“Henry doesn’t have a clue what’s coming, but Spurgeon understands and he talks about the baby quite a bit," Ben added. "Seeing our boys meet their new sibling for the first time is something we are really looking forward to! We realize that, in going from two to three kids, we’re about to switch from man-to-man to zone coverage, so we’ve definitely been taking advice from friends who are already in this stage! We love being parents and are really looking forward to this new arrival!”
Jessa's Instagram photos over the past few weeks have led fans to believe she's expecting, especially from the day before the announcement when she was shopping at her cousin Amy's store.
We're excited for Jessa and Ben to welcome another baby to the family! Personally I hope it's a girl!
