Counting On couple Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald welcomed a baby girl to their family. With the newest addition, Jessa and Ben now have three children. Being the first girl, Jessa and her husband Ben have a lot to learn. Not to mention they also have a lot to buy. Luckily, Jessa has some experience with raising girls. She has many younger sisters who she helped take care of. Ben and Jessa finally got the little girl they’ve always wanted. Therefore, will this be the last child for them? Knowing the Duggars – probably not.
Counting On – Jessa Duggar Becomes Mom of Three
Jessa Duggar is already a mother to two boys with Ben Seewald. Her eldest son Spurgeon is three. Her second son Henry is two. With the birth of her daughter, she is now a mother of three. The Counting On mother has three children all under the age of three. Jessa definitely has her hands full. Hopefully her Duggar sisters will be there to lend a helping hand. Raising three kids cannot be easy. Especially being so close in age.
The Counting On mother-of-three gave birth to Ivy Jane Seewald on May 26. Baby Ivy was born just before six in the evening. Ben Seewald and Jessa Duggar had an at home delivery. Her baby weighs 7lbs and 14oz. According to the Seewald family blog, Ivy Jane “tiny” when compared to Jessa’s other children. At birth Spurgeon weighed nearly 10lbs. While Henry weighed almost 9 pounds. Hopefully this means Ivy Jane was an easier delivery for this Duggar daughter.
Ben Seewald Enters New Territory
Ben Seewald and his wife Jessa Duggar announced they were expecting their third child earlier this year. Jessa admitted that her and Ben both guessed that they were having another boy. Therefore, she said that “if our predictions are right then we already have a ton of the clothing and accessories ready to pass down.” Sorry, no hand me downs for this girl.
The Counting On father-of-three is about to step into a new territory. With the birth of his daughter, Ben Seewald will have to navigate raising a girl. Even though Jessa Duggar may have some experience with girls, she joked that her and her husband would be “starting from square one and might have to learn a few things.” Parenting is always an on going learning experience.
TLC Couple Experiences Unexpected Delivery
Jessa Duggar and husband Ben Seewald revealed on their blog that the delivery of Ivy was not expected. The Counting On alums explained that they were about to leave for church when Jessa’s water broke. They said her due date was June 5th. However, Ivy decided to come early. Jessa was in labor for over three hours before Ivy made her appearance.
