It's a Boy!

Jessa (Duggar) Seewald and Ben Seewald welcomed their first child into the world on Thursday, and it's a boy! Their son weighed 9 lbs. 11 oz. and was 21 1/4 inches long. Both Jessa and Baby Seewald are doing well.

The Seewalds chose to share the first photo of their baby exclusively with PEOPLE Magazine. The proud parents will share more pictures soon, but for the time being, visit PEOPLE.com to see his beautiful face.

    1. They have had a respectful relationship with People magazine for quite sometime, all the others are so innacurate.Sounds like some people are just jealous, i hope and pray they make loads of money any way they can.

    2. If u have nothing nice to say please do not say anything at all.

  74. Anyone know what People paid for the exclusive? Would be a great college fund for the little guy.

  82. Of course they sold the 1st picture of the baby to People magazine--I'm just one of those people who believe ALL babies are precious in the sight of the Lord not just"movie stars" babies. Just my opinion

  91. Have they said what his name is yet?

    ReplyDelete
  92. Why did Michelle say on that 911 call that Jessa had stopped bleeding? Women who have just delivered don't stop bleeding right away....and I needed the "super deluxe" external protection for that for a few weeks...that just isn't right...what happened that Jessa needed medical intervention, the medical intervention that she should have had present in the first place?...like in a hospital setting.

    1. Homebirth and hospital births will forever be debated...no winners...to each his own, whatever feels right for that individual.People need to stop criticizing others and just focus on your own life.Her actions dont directly harm said readers anyhoot.

      Delete
    2. Jessa was bleeding at the beginning of the call and towards the end ( the call was 3:16) Michelle said Jessa had stopped. By that time the ambulance was at the house and they took Jessa to the hospital as a precaution.

  94. I don't begrudge them making money from People -- more power to them -- but since they're a public family by choice, their fans aren't wrong to wonder about these things (especially regarding those members of the family that seek donations).

  100. I hope Jessa recovers completely soon!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Congratulations ! So happy on the arrival of this cute baby boy. Glad all is well and looking forward to knowing the name.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Bleeding after birth is always a possibility whether a hospital or home birth. It's why the placenta has to be completely delivered. It's good that the midwife was being so careful and had Michelle call 911 since the bleeding didn't appear to abate as soon as expected. Hard to say exactly since NONE OF US WAS THERE! Are 911 tapes routinely released to the public?

    Anyway, I'm just glad that Jessa delivered a healthy baby. God has greatly blessed Ben and her.
