This is SO exciting! Jessa Duggar is officially pregnant with her and her husband, Ben Seewald’s, second child — and they are beyond excited to expand their family. Even cuter — now baby Spurgeon, 9 months, is going to be a big brother! Congrats, you two!
“We are overjoyed to announce that Spurgeon [9 months] has a new title in life as ‘big brother!’ ” Jessa Duggar, 23, and her hubby Ben Seewald, 21, revealed to People mag. “We are so thankful that God is adding to our family.” Aw! What a beautiful birth announcement — we ALREADY can’t wait to meet the new little one.
However, fans will have to wait until February to see the newest Seewald since Jessa is only about three months along so far. And with her February due date, Jessa will be giving birth just three months after her first child was born — talk about a quick turnaround! But we’re not at all surprised that Jessa and Ben want to expand their fam quickly. After all, Jessa has 18 siblings and the couple has dreamed of a large family ever since their November 2014 wedding.
In fact, the the two have even heavily discussed adoption! So who knows, Jessa and Ben may just be adding yet ANOTHER little one to their family sooner than expected! But for now, the Jill & Jessa: Counting On star and her husband are just focusing on the present and relishing the fact that they’re going to be two-time parents next year!
They even added in their statement that “2017 is shaping up to be a wonderful year already, and we know Spurgeon will do a great job in his new role. Having Spurgeon has been such a wonderful blessing, and we cannot wait to see the face of this sweet new baby (or babies!).” So it looks like twins are NOT out of the picture!
Tune in to the season 2 premier of Counting On on Aug. 23 at 8 p.m. ET on TLC. The new season will focus heavily on Jessa’s sister, Jinger Duggar, 22, and her courtship-turned-engagement with former soccer pro Jeremy Vuolo, 28. There’s no question it’s been an epic year for the Duggars!
