Counting On stars Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald recently welcomed their second child together…and now they’re revealing their little guy’s name.
In a new video, Jessa and Ben announce that they’ve named their new addition Henry Wilberforce. In the clip, they explain the significance of his name, which includes a bit of a history lesson.
Ben notes: “We just thought it was cute, but also there was another great man of God name Matthew Henry who lived before Wilberforce and he wrote a lot of great commentaries.”
Henry is of German origin, meaning “ruler of the home.”
Little Henry joins big brother Spurgeon, who is now 15 months old.
