“We’re in week 12 right now and things are going great,” Jessa said in a special video for TLC. “Looking forward to being in the second trimester and being over all the morning sickness and all that but it’s not been too difficult.”
While Jessa contends with a bit of morning sickness, Ben seems purely excited about welcoming a baby — to two!
“Can’t wait to find out if it’s a boy or a girl,” Ben said. “Maybe it’s both.”
Both sides of the family seem just as thrilled by the new addition.
“Exciting news! Jessa and Ben are expecting a baby,” Michelle Duggar said on Facebook. “Jim Bob and I are so excited for them and we know Jessa and Ben will make great parents!”
Michael and Guinn Seewald, who will be first-time grandparents, celebrated the news on Instagram, where they shared the top picture and added, “We are thrilled! Congratulations, Ben and Jessa!”
“Congrats to @jessaseewald @ben_seewald on your pregnancy,” new mom Jill Dillard said on Instagram. “Babies are such a blessing!”
Anna Duggar, who is expecting her fourth child this summer, congratulated Ben and Jessa by sharing a picture taken a few weeks ago when she, Jessa and Jill were all pregnant.
