Jessa Seewald is pregnant with her second child


The extended Duggar family is ready for yet another addition as Jessa (Duggar) Seewald and Ben Seewald have announced they are expecting their second child.

The Counting On stars told People:

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. 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!).”

The news might be surprising to some fans of the show as the pair, who are already parents to 9-month-old Spurgeon, have talked openly about their longing to adopt. They are due in February.

Counting On premieres tonight on TLC at 8/7c.
