Counting On star Jessa Seewald (née Duggar) is expecting her fourth child with her husband Ben.
Jessa took to Instagram to share a sonogram photo of her little one with the caption: “We’re looking forward to summertime, and here’s our #1 reason! Thank you, God, for this precious gift!”
In a statement to TLC, the couple shared, “After the heartbreaking loss of a baby last year, we’re overjoyed to share that another little Seewald is on the way. The pregnancy is going smoothly, and both baby and Jessa are doing well. We are so grateful to God for the precious gift of a new life!”
The couple, who share sons Spurgeon, 5, and Henry, 4, and a daughter Ivy named who will turn 2 in May, discussed how their little ones are handling the news. “The kids are delighted, and we can hardly wait to welcome this little one into our arms this summer.”
Jessa and Ben have kept the gender of their babies a secret until their arrival and plan to continue this practice for this pregnancy. Though the couple has shared that they may let their son’s in on the secret, as the boys have taken an interest in following Jessa’s pregnancy. ““Spurgeon and Henry are very excited. They understand. We have little pregnancy apps on my phone that we look at and they get to see updates of the baby’s progress and growth.”
Congratulations to Jessa and Ben on growing their family and preparing for the arrival of their rainbow baby. We wish them all the best as they get ready to add a fourth child into their home.
