The fans were right! For months there have been rumors that Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald were expecting another child, and guess what: it’s true! In Touch magazine has exclusively learned that the Counting On couple is expecting baby No. 3, and it’s coming much sooner than you would think… like in four months!

“Jessa is definitely pregnant and will be making an announcement in April,” a source told In Touch, adding that the reality star, 25, is about four months along. Normally Duggars are thrilled to announce a baby as soon as possible, so why are they still keeping it quiet four months in?

Ben and Jessa “have been keeping the news under wraps, partly because it was in the early stages and also because she did not want to take away from the news that her brother Josiah [Duggar] and Lauren [Swanson] are getting married,” explained the source. That’s actually super sweet.

The exciting news means that Jessa actually got pregnant right after her sister Jinger Duggar did. Jinger is just about at 21 weeks, or about five months pregnant. That means Jessa will welcome her baby about a month after Jinger, with Kendra Caldwell welcoming Joe Duggar’s first baby coming smack dab in between. This is going to be a big year for Duggar babies, and we can’t wait to see who’s next! Ahem, Jill.
