The Seewalds Are Expecting Baby #4! 01:30
Here’s something to celebrate: Jessa and Ben Seewald are expecting their fourth child together! The proud parents are elated and sharing exclusive details about this next chapter for their family.
“After the heartbreaking loss of a baby last year, we’re overjoyed to share that another little Seewald is on the way,” said the couple.
“The pregnancy is going smoothly, and both baby and Jessa are doing well. We are so grateful to God for the precious gift of a new life! The kids are delighted, and we can hardly wait to welcome this little one into our arms this summer.”
The couple’s three children, Spurgeon, 4, Henry, 3, and Ivy, 1, are all going to have a new sibling to look after. In the video above, Jessa explains, “Spurgeon and Henry are very excited. They understand. We have little pregnancy apps on my phone that we look at and they get to see updates of the baby’s progress and growth.” Although her sons are on board, the soon-to-be mom of four says that daughter Ivy can’t quite wrap her head around the idea, and might be in for a shock when the new baby arrives.
Jessa and Ben have always kept their babies’ genders a secret from the whole family. The couple planned to do the same this time around, but since their two sons have been taking such an interest in the pregnancy, they are tempted to bring the boys in on the secret.
Jessa and Ben’s fourth child will be the latest addition to the Duggar family as the 21st grandchild — and possibly the next member of the baby girl boom that’s happened over the past year. Jessa gave birth to Ivy in May 2019, and since then, six baby girls were born into the family, with Kendra expecting the seventh this month.
We can’t wait to meet the newest member of the Counting On family. Congratulations Jessa and Ben!
