Jessa (Duggar) Seewald and Husband Ben Welcome Their Second Child Together!
It’s two kids and counting for Jess Duggar and her husband Ben Seewald. The couple announced the safe arrival of their second child yesterday and it’s a BOY!
“We are so happy to announce the arrival of our sweet second son,” the couple told People in a statement. “He was born at 4:26 a.m. this morning, weighing 8 lbs. and 11 oz., and measuring 21 3/4 in. long. Mum and baby are both doing well. We are so thankful to God for this precious new gift of life and are excited to be a family of four! Thanks to everyone for your prayers and well wishes!” The name of their son is yet to be revealed.
Duggar, 24 the former 19 Kids and Counting star, and Seewald, 21, are already parents to son Spurgeon, 14 months who is no doubt looking forward to being a big brother. Duggar spoke of Spurgeon’s new role last year when she announced her second pregnancy.
“We are overjoyed to announce that Spurgeon has a new title in life as ‘big brother’! We are so thankful that God is adding to our family,” she said at the time. “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!.”
In an episode on Counting On, Duggar revealed she had suffered morning sickness during her second pregnancy. “I’ve had way more food aversions,” she said admitting that she couldn’t stand the smell of coffee, chicken or popcorn. “We couldn’t even have them in the house.”
The Duggar family will be expanding even further this year with news Jessa Duggar’s sister Jill Duggar is also expecting her second child with husband Derick Dillard. The new baby will be a sibling for their 1 year old son Israel.
Congratulations to you all!
