There’s officially another Duggar grandbaby on the way! Jessa Duggar (now Seewald) is expecting her third child with her husband Ben Seewald.

Jessa and Ben tied the knot on November 1, 2014, and announced they were expecting their first baby just a few months later. On November 5, 2015, they welcomed their first son, Spurgeon Elliot Seewald, to the world.

On February 6, 2017, they had their second son, Henry Wilberforce Seewald. Now the happy parents are expecting another baby!

Jessa told People, “We are overjoyed that God has blessed us with a baby, due late this Spring! From the day we found out we were expecting, we both guessed boy, and if our predictions are right then we already have a ton the clothing and accessories ready to pass down!

At the same time, we would absolutely love it if we found out we were having a girl — though we’ve joked that we’d be starting from square one and might have to learn a few things.”

There’s no doubt that Jessa, Ben, and their young sons are excited about their new addition.

“Henry doesn’t have a clue what’s coming, but Spurgeon understands and he talks about the baby quite a bit,” explained Ben. “Seeing our boys meet their new sibling for the first time is something we are really looking forward to! We realize that, in going from two to three kids, we’re about to switch from man-to-man to zone coverage, so we’ve definitely been taking advice from friends who are already in this stage! We love being parents and are really looking forward to this new arrival!”

The last baby to join the family was Felicity, Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo’s daughter, who was born on July 19, 2018.
