Things did NOT go as planned when Jessa Duggar gave birth to her third child — and it resulted in her needing to be hospitalized after having the baby on the couch in her own home! Of course, the dramatic delivery was caught on video.
Some of Jessa’s followers do NOT approve of giving her little ones screen time — but the reality star isn’t taking the mom shame lying down! See what she had to say about this ‘essential’ parenting practice.
While the Duggar fam isn’t allowed to engage in physical contact until they’re in a courtship, now that many of our fav couples have tied the knot, they dished on who enjoys PDA the most — and it’s not who you’d think!
Jessa Duggar welcomed baby #2 back in February, but on the June 26 episode of ‘Counting On,’ fans finally got to watch her ‘perfect’ birth for the very 1st time. We even got to see the moment baby Henry entered the world!
