TLC’s Jessa Duggar Seewald Expecting Baby No. 3

-

Every time you turn around, it seems like there is another Duggar baby on its way. And yes, 2019 is continuing on that happy trend as 19 Kids and Counting star Jessa Duggar Seewald and her husband Ben have just announced that their third child is on the way!

“We are overjoyed that God has blessed us with a baby, due late this Spring!” the Counting On star tells People magazine in a new interview.

“From the day we found out we were expecting, we both guessed boy, and if our predictions are right then we already have a ton the clothing and accessories ready to pass down! At the same time, we would absolutely love it if we found out we were having a girl — though we’ve joked that we’d be starting from square one and might have to learn a few things.”

The couple, whose love began on the set of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting, have been quite busy in the family department since marrying in 2015. They are currently parents to 3-year-old Spurgeon and 23-month old Henry. And so far, the kids really aren’t aware of the fact that things are about to get a whole lot more crowded in the house.

“Henry doesn’t have a clue what’s coming, but Spurgeon understands and he talks about the baby quite a bit,” Ben tells People.

“Seeing our boys meet their new sibling for the first time is something we are really looking forward to! We realize that, in going from two to three kids, we’re about to switch from man-to-man to zone coverage, so we’ve definitely been taking advice from friends who are already in this stage! We love being parents and are really looking forward to this new arrival!”

Congrats to this wonderful family!
