Jessa Duggar Gives Birth To Baby Boy!
Jessa Duggar gave birth to a healthy baby boy on Thursday, one day after her own birthday.
Duggar and her husband Ben Seewald have not announced the joyous news. The newborn’s arrival was actually revealed by his sister, Jessica, who posted on Instagram in blue writing, “I’m an auntie!” The official Facebook page for “Jill & Jessa: Counting On” later confirmed, posting, “We have a baby….BOY! #BabySeewald arrived today!”
As Gossip Cop reported, Duggar and Seewald revealed in April that they were expecting their first child. Their little one was actually due on their first wedding anniversary, November 1. The milestone came and went, however, with Duggar ultimately delivering 5 days late.
Duggar has documented her pregnancy on social media over the last nine months. She and Seewald actually hinted more than once that they were expecting twins. In an update video right after the pregnancy announcement, Duggar wondered if she was carrying a boy or a girl, prompting her husband to remark, “It could be both.”
More recently, the reality stars hosted a poll on their website for fans to predict the baby’s gender. The options included not just boy and girl, but also twin boys, twin girls, and boy/girl twins. In the end, however, it seems Duggar and Seewald were just trying to throw everyone off!
Duggar is the third child in her “19 Kids and Counting” family to become a parent. She follows sister Jill, who welcomed a son last year, and brother Josh, who is a dad to four kids, with the youngest born in July. Duggar has stayed in the spotlight in the wake of Josh’s molestation and cheating scandals, and will join Jill for a series of spinoff specials on TLC via the aforementioned “Counting On” show. Gossip Cop offers congrats to the growing family.
