The Duggar kids club is certainly growing at a fast rate!
Jessa (Duggar) Seewald and her husband Ben Seewald welcomed their second child on February 6th at 4:26 in the morning!
“We are so happy to announce the arrival of our sweet second son,” the couple said in a statement. “He was born at 4:26 a.m. this morning, weighing 8 lbs. and 11 oz., and measuring 21 3/4 in. long. Mom and baby are both doing well. We are so thankful to God for this precious new gift of life and are excited to be a family of four! Thanks to everyone for your prayers and well wishes!”
The couple are already parents to their first son, Spurgeon, who is 14 months old.
Jessa said that this pregnancy involved way more morning sickness than her first pregnancy. Popcorn, chicken, and coffee were all things that made her feel sick.
“I’ve had way more food aversions,” she said. “We couldn’t even have them in the house.”
Jessa, 24 and Ben, 21, wed in 2014 and always voiced their excitement about having kids. They also suggested that adoption might be something they consider, in addition to natural birth.
There has been no name revealed for baby #2 as of yet, but with a big brother named Spurgeon, it’s hard to imagine it will be a traditional one!
Congratulations to Jessa, Ben, Spurgeon, and the newest Duggar-Seewald!
