Proud mom moment! Jessa Duggar shared several heartwarming photos of her sons, Henry and Spurgeon, spending quality time with their new little sister, Ivy Jane, on June 27. The Counting On star revealed that it made her emotional to see them so head-over-heels about their sibling.
“I‘m all teary-eyed seeing my boys love on their little sister. 👦🏻👦🏼👶🏻 Spurgeon had two people in the house to love on him. Ivy has double that number,” the 26-year-old captioned her adorable Instagram post. “As my mom would always say, ‘Love multiplies, it doesn’t divide.'” Jessa also wrote about how she’s cherishing every minute spent with her precious children.
“Today is a gift, tomorrow isn’t guaranteed,” the TLC alum added. “I never want to take a single day for granted.” In the snaps, Spurgeon, 3, looks down adoringly at his baby sister while her head is rested on a comfortable pillow. Henry, 2, was all smiles while playing with Ivy’s little feet.
Jessa and her husband, Ben Seewald, welcomed their third child together on May 26, 10 days before Jessa’s due date. The couple later revealed their reason for choosing Ivy as her name in a TLCme video posted to the Seewald family’s website on June 3. “Ivy Jane. We just liked those two names, Jessa and I talked about it beforehand this time around,” the father-of-three explained.
“We actually had a name picked out before she was born,” Ben added. “We liked the way those names flowed together and with her middle name, Jane, she’s actually named after Lady Jane Grey, who was a young lady who was queen of England for a short time during the 1500s.”
Ivy will soon have several other little girls to play with, as Lauren Swanson, Anna Duggar and Kendra Caldwell are all expecting daughters. Of course, fans have been wondering if Joy-Anna is also expecting a girl, but Jessa confirmed that Joy-Anna doesn’t know the sex yet. Time will tell!
