The couple are already parents to their 1-year-old son, Israel who they say will be an amazing big brother.
“Israel is gonna be a great big brother,” Jill says. “He already loves, like, other little babies, and the only thing I think he’s gonna have to work on is learning that babies that are smaller than you, you have to be more gentle with.”
Jill’s younger sister Jessa also announced in August that she was expecting her second child with husband Ben Seewald. Jessa, 24, had her son Spurgeon, last November.
“We are overjoyed to announce that Spurgeon has a new title in life as ‘big brother’!” the couple said. “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!.”
2017 looks set to be a busy year for the Duggars! Congratulations guys!
