Jessa Duggar Is Pregnant With Her First Child With Ben Seewald & Her Due Date Is A Very Special Day
It looks like the Duggar family is expanding — again! Jessa Duggar is pregnant with her first child with husband Ben Seewald, People exclusively revealed. Duggar and Seewald shared the exciting news with the entertainment outlet, and they couldn't be happier. Duggar said, "We're expecting! We are so excited. The due date is November first, our wedding anniversary." As for her husband, he added, "We are looking forward to being parents."
Duggar is now in her second trimester and for all those 19 Kids and Counting fans, Duggar and Seewald have a "special message" for viewers during Tuesday's episode. Apparently, Duggar revealed the exciting news to Seewald before church one Sunday morning: "I said, 'Hey Ben, guess what? Yeah, you're a dad.' We couldn't believe it. We are so exited. We have started talking baby names. It is one of those things that is so special, picking a name for a baby."
As for morning sickness, Duggar feels a lot better than she did in the beginning. "I am feeling pretty good," she said. "The morning sickness was different every day. It's getting better, but I'm still hanging on to the heartburn. And I don't have any super serious food cravings."
Fans might recall that Duggar and Seewald talked about adopting, and they still plan to do just that. Duggar said, "Our hearts haven't changed on adoption." The adoption agency requires a couple be married for two years before adopting, so Duggar and Seewald are "still making plans." Seewald added, "We are trying to take it one day at a time. We pray every night that God helps us be good parents. We are getting advice from other parents."
Now that they're expecting a little one of their very own this means Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard's son, Israel David, will soon have a new playmate.
Congrats to the happy couple on their exciting news!
