Jessa Seewald is Pregnant!

The Duggars are on a roll! So far this month, they have announced Israel Dillard's birth and Josiah's courtship, and now they have another big announcement to make! Jessa and Ben Seewald are expecting! Baby Seewald is due on their one-year wedding anniversary (November 1st).


The Seewalds revealed exclusively to PEOPLE Magazine that they are looking forward to becoming parents. As Jessa enters her second trimester of pregnancy, she says she is "feeling pretty good," although she still suffers from heartburn. She and Ben are hoping to adopt in the future.

  19. Two old wives tales: 1. Carry high for a girl. 2. Heartburn during pregnancy means the baby will have a lot of hair. All I know is I avoided foods/drinks that caused heartburn i.e. grape soda. I am so happy for the family and especially for Ben and Jessa. May God bless them on this new journey in their lives. Joyce Anglin Miller.

  21. I think we all figured that one out months ago, so happy for them.It was obvious when all the pictures were hiding her belly and her face was fuller. They have to keep big news private for contractual reasons with the show and magazines, make sense...nothing wrong with that.What an exciting year for the Duggars and the Bates :-) May they continually be blessed :-)

    ReplyDelete
  44. She is taking after her mom and Jill and is showing a nice size bump for four months.Maybe Jessa will break the cycle on finding out the sex of the babe before it's born, it seems like no one wants to be surprised these days.

    ReplyDelete

  87. I knew it, I knew it, I could have won a bet. I saw the glow in both their beautiful blue eyes. The happiness,the joy. The faith they share about adopting children, God would never leave them empty handed to have their own blessings. So extremely happy for them and all the new blessings the Duggers are receiving, a birth,a new relationship, a pregnancy, and everyone one is in excellent health, especially their cuteness baby Josey. God bless you all, I hope one day to meet you Michelle Duggar,you are a matriarch to a wonderful family. Yours sincerely from South Florida

  92. I love the Duggars and all the couples married and having children. The one thing I could not take is the over use of the word "surreal". This is not "surreal" this is "real" life, just enjoy your family and life.

    Well, congrats to them.

    ReplyDelete
  149. I can guess what going to happen..... Jesse is going to have the perfect delivery. What happened to Jill is what happened to me, then a few months later my sister had a perfect home birth! While I was very happy things went good for her it made me sad that mine wasn't like that. :(
