Jessa Duggar Pregnant! Reality Star Expecting First Baby With Ben Seewald
Jessa Duggar is pregnant! Are you shocked? The “19 Kids & Counting” star, who married Ben Seewald last year in a wedding filmed for the TLC show, is expecting her first child, she confirmed on Tuesday. “We’re expecting!” she tells People. “We are so excited. The due date is November first, our wedding anniversary.”
The third daughter (and fifth oldest child) in Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s huge brood, Jessa tied the knot with Seewald in front of more than 1,000 people and reality show cameras in Bentonville, Arkansas, back in November. They announced their engagement last August, following 11 months of courtship. As per the family’s religious rules, Duggar and Seewald did not share their first kiss until their wedding day. It appears they’ve since gone a bit further.
She tells People that she took a pregnancy test one Sunday before church. “I said, ‘Hey Ben, guess what? Yeah, you’re a dad.’ We couldn’t believe it,” says Duggar. “We are so excited. We have started talking baby names. It is one of those things that is so special, picking a name for a baby.” Seewald adds, “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.” Congratulations!
