Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald saved their first kiss for their wedding day, and they have been making up for lost time ever since. Just weeks after posting their steamy honeymoon photo, the “19 Kids and Counting” stars shared another intimate kissing picture with fans Monday in honor of their one-month wedding anniversary.
“Today we’re celebrating our 1 ‘monthiversary!’ @benseewald, you’re amazing! I’m so blessed to call you mine!” Jessa, 22, posted to her official Instagram page. The new picture, which shows Ben, 19, planting a kiss on Jessa’s cheek, isn’t nearly as risqué as their first public lip-lock they posted on the social media site last month.

Ben opted to share a more romantic shot of the pair on their wedding day. “One month ago today, I married my best friend! I love you, Baby!” Ben said on Instagram Monday night.
While some “19 Kids and Counting” fans have shown their support for Ben and Jessa on their "monthiversary," others used the picture as a platform to discuss whether or not the longtime TLC reality star is expecting her first child.
“You’re not pregnant yet?” one fan asked Jessa on her Facebook page Monday. “Chill out people. She doesn’t have to be pregnant right away and if she is congrats,” said another viewer. “When are you going to announce your pregnancy? Come on, we all know it will be soon,” asked one fan.
Others expressed their hope that the bride would enjoy being married for a period before welcoming a child. “Hopefully she can enjoy being a wife before she’s a mother… Give it some time,” said one fan.
Last week, InTouch Weekly reported that Jessa might already be pregnant with her first child due to the Duggars' stance on family planning and their belief that they should welcome as many children as “God sees fit.” “They look at sex as a ‘present’ from God, and they couldn’t wait to ‘open it’ on their wedding day,” an insider told the magazine.“I wouldn’t be surprised if Jessa were pregnant already.”
Ben and Jessa married at First Baptist Church in Bentonville, Arkansas, Nov. 1. People magazine reports that their wedding will be featured on next season of “19 Kids and Counting.” While there is no specific air date for the episode, fans were treated to a sneak peek during the Season 8 finale last Tuesday. In the teaser, viewers were able to see Jessa in her Allure Bridal’s blush wedding dress and walking arm-in-arm with her dad Jim Bob down the aisle. It is rumored that their honeymoon in Paris, France, may also be featured on the program next year.
Jessa is the second daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle to tie the knot. Their fourth oldest, Jill, 23, married Derick Dillard in June. Two months after their wedding, the couple announced they were expecting their first child. The baby, a boy, is due this spring.
