Counting On Star Jessa Duggar, Husband Ben Seewald Expecting Third Child

Congratulations are in order for Counting On star Jessa Duggar Seewald!

On Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2019, the 19 Kids and Counting alum took to Instagram to announce that she and husband Ben Seewald are expecting their third child together.

"Happy news from the Seewald family!" Jessa wrote to her two million followers, captioning a sweet family photo. Alongside a heart-eyes emoji, she added, "Baby #3 is on the way!" As Nicki Swift previously reported, Jessa, 26, and Ben, 23, are already mom and dad to sons Spurgeon Elliot, 3, and Henry Wilberforce, 23 months. According to E! News, the happy couple tied the knot in 2014. 

While opening up about their exciting baby news in a Seewald family blog post, Jessa revealed that baby no. 3, whom the proud parents predict will be another boy, is expected to arrive in the late spring of 2019. "If our predictions are right, then we already have a ton [of] the clothing and accessories ready to pass down!" she continued. "At the same time, we would absolutely love it if we found out we were having a girl — though we joked that we'd be starting from square one and might have to learn a few things."

For his part, Ben revealed that while little Henry "doesn't have a clue what's coming," older brother Spurgeon "understands" that there's another baby on the way. The proud dad added, "He talks about the baby quite a bit. Seeing our boys meet their new sibling for the first time is something we are really looking forward to! 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!" He concluded with, "We love being parents and are really looking forward to this new arrival!"

These two aren't the only celebs in reality TV expecting a little bundle of joy in 2019. Talk show host and TV producer Andy Cohen recently revealed that he'll be welcoming his first child via surrogate this year. "If all goes according to plan, in about six weeks time, I am going to become a father thanks to a wonderful surrogate who is carrying my future," the 50-year-old said during an episode of Watch What Happens Live in late December. Cohen added, "Family means everything to me and having one of my own is something that I have wanted in my heart for my entire life."

Congrats to the Duggar-Seewald clan on their baby news!
