During the season 1 finale of ‘Jill & Jessa: Counting On,’ Jessa Duggar finally took her son, Spurgeon Seewald, to visit Jill Duggar and her son, Israel Dillard, for the very first time. And their epic union was too precious!
On the May 3 season finale of Jill & Jessa: Counting On, Jessa Duggar traveled to Central America along with a handful of other Duggars, her husband, Ben Seewald, and their son, Spurgeon, 5 months. In the emotional episode, Jill Duggar FINALLY meets Spurgeon and introduces him to HER son, Israel Dillard, 1. But things turned tearful when the Duggars had to leave the Dillards!
The episode began with Israel and Spurgeon meeting and it was BEYOND adorable! Little Issy could NOT stop showering Spurgeon with kisses and Jill and Jessa got a total kick out of it. “It’s so sweet to see them beginning their relationship as cousins,” Jill gushed. And as for the 24-year-old Duggar daughter, she was ecstatic to meet Spurgeon for the first time herself.
“He’s a happy little guy,” she cooed. The Duggars’ trip to Central America seemed to go off without a hitch and Jessa, although a bit nervous about brining Spurgeon along, felt right at home immediately. In fact, while Jill took her family on a tour of their house, Jessa commented that it reminded her of her and Ben’s home back in the states.
It was quite an emotional trip for the family as well considering Jessa hadn’t seen her sister in five months. And when she returned home at the end of the episode, she struggled to fight back tears. “It’s really really hard to say goodbye. Especially when you know you’re not going to see these people for a very long time.” Aw!
But at least the siblings have some new, happy memories to reminisce about until they reunite. Jill even took her family to visit an orphanage! Jessa especially, enjoyed playing with the children and revealed that she and Ben want to adopt another baby “as soon as possible.” Wow — by the time next season rolls around, there just may be another Seewald on the way! We can’t wait to find out!
How cute were baby Spurgeon and Israel, HollywoodLifers? Are you excited for the show’s second season?
