Jesse Duggar and Ben Seewald have confirmed that they are expecting their second child .
“We are overjoyed to announce that Spurgeon has a new title in life as ‘big brother’!” the couple said in a statement. “We are so thankful that God is adding to our family. 2017 is shaping up to be a wonderful year already and we know Spurgeon will do a great job in his new role. Having Spurgeon has been such a wonderful blessing and we cannot wait to see the face of this sweet new baby or babies!.”
“We both kind of feel at this point that it’s a boy but we haven’t had an ultrasound to find yet,” Jessa said. “I think, probably, I won’t be able to wait until baby is born to know the gender. We haven’t decided yet if we’re going to share that news with everybody or keep it a secret again.”
Jessa, 23 and Ben, 21 celebrated their one year anniversary around the time their son Spurgeon was born last November. “I think Spurgeon will be a great big brother,” Ben said. “He’ll learn a lot of valuable lessons having a little sibling. Yeah, we’re really excited about that.”
Naming Spurgeon’s sibling is going to be quite a challenge and the couple say they really have ‘no idea’ of names yet but they are definitely ‘open to suggestions!’
