After a scandal-ridden year for the whole Duggar family, 22-year-old Jessa (Duggar) Seewald and husband Ben Seewald could be making another major change.
The newlyweds, who are expecting their first child on their one-year wedding anniversary on Nov. 1, attended the Southern Woman’s Show in Orlando last week, and revealed that they may soon be uprooting their small family away from the 19 Kids and Counting hometown.
At the conference, the parents-to-be chatted about their upcoming addition, and Jessa revealed that they could be moving away from her parents’ home.
“If Ben’s seminary that he’s looking into requires us to move, then we might eventually move,” Jessa told the crowd.
The duo did not reveal where they may more—or where Ben’s seminary work could be—but seemed to be open to the idea of leaving their longtime home.
This news comes after a whirlwind of scandals the family has endured. Earlier this year, Josh Duggar revealed that he molested five girls when he was a teenager, and one of those victims was Jessa. Later this summer, he confessed that he had an Ashley Madison account, and had cheated on his wife, and mother of his four children, Anna Duggar. Their highly watched TLC show was cancelled because of the revelations.
Jessa, however, is not the first of his siblings to make a major change. Jill (Duggar) Dillard, along with her husband, Derick Dillard, and now five-month-old son, Israel, recently moved to South America for an extended mission trip.
Yet among all the bad news that has surrounded the family in recent months, there is some good news. Both Jessa and Jill will return to TLC in a series of specials, which will document their pregnancy and missionary trip, respectively. But this latest reveal could soon uproot the whole family once again.
