Counting On couple Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald announced they were expecting baby No. 3 on Jan. 9, and they were flooded with heartfelt comments: including one sweet message from fellow TLC alum Tori Roloff. The Little People, Big World star was thrilled to hear about the news.
“Congratulations!” Tori, 27, commented on Jessa’s Instagram page. The reality star is a friend of the family and she even left a message on one of Jinger Duggar’s social media posts back in August. When the new mom, 25, shared a pic of her daughter, Felicity, Tori responded, “Congratulations, girl. Such a gift from God. I can tell you’re such a good mama! She’s perfect.”
As expected, fans were also sending their well-wishes after discovering that Jessa, 26, and Ben, 23, are welcoming a third bundle of joy in 2019. The lovebirds already share two children together, Spurgeon, 3, and Henry, almost 2. Ben and Jessa don’t know if they’re having another bouncing baby boy or a precious little girl, but they are elated about expanding their family.
“We are overjoyed that God has blessed us with a baby, due late this Spring!” Jessa, 26, told People in a statement. “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.”
Ben revealed that he can’t wait for the boys to meet their new brother or sister. “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,” the Counting On star said. “We love being parents and are really looking forward to this new arrival!”
