Just look at that sweet face! Jessa Duggar welcomed a precious baby girl with her husband, Ben Seewald, over the weekend and she treated fans to the first photos of her new addition on May 28. The Counting On star shared a close-up of her bundle of joy and fans are already in love.
“Introducing ❤️Ivy Jane Seewald,” she captioned the darling snap of her daughter wearing a pink onesie and a grey bow. Several other portraits were shared via the Seewald family page, reading, “Ivy Jane captured our hearts the moment we first met her. Beautiful just her momma.”
As expected, several of Jessa’s followers are raving over how cute Ivy is underneath her new Instagram photo. “I still can’t get over her name and how beautiful she is,” one wrote. Another chimed in, “Aw finally someone has a girl,” while a third added, “She’s perfect mama.”
Jessa, 26, gave birth to her third child at home on Sunday, May 26, after three and a half hours of labor. Ben, 24, and Jessa share two boys already, Spurgeon, 3, and Henry, 2. According to an update on the Duggar family blog, Jessa was getting ready for church when her water broke. “[Ivy’s] due date was June 5th, and since both of our boys went five days past their due date, we thought we would go late again,” the couple wrote in their statement online. “We were so surprised when she came two weeks earlier than her brothers. We definitely weren’t expecting that!”
Ivy weighed 7 pounds and 14 ounces at birth, measuring 20.5 inches long. Many of the Duggar girls welcome nine to 10 pound babies, so Jessa was surprised by how small her new addition was, especially considering the fact that Spurgeon was born at nearly 10 pounds, and Henry close to 9 pounds. “She feels so tiny compared to her siblings,” the reality star spilled, adding, “We’re so grateful to God for this precious gift. She is already so loved. Her big brothers adore her!”
