Another Duggar baby is on the way. Jessa (Duggar) Seewald confirmed last month that she is pregnant with her first child, and it might not be too long before “19 Kids and Counting” fans find out what the TLC star and her husband, Ben Seewald, are having.
Since Jessa, 22, announced her pregnancy in her second trimester – unlike her sister Jill, 23, who confirmed she was expecting just days after finding out – she might be close to receiving her gender-determining ultrasound. And according to a report from Radar Online, the mom-to-be and Ben, 19, have plans to learn the baby's sex later this month.
The site is claiming that the newlywed couple made their plans for a gender scan known during an appearance at Cross Church Compassion Center in Springdale, Arkansas, on April 28. After revealing to a group of sorority girls outside the church that she and Ben had heard their child's heartbeat for the first time that day, Jessa reportedly dished about their plans to learn their baby’s gender in the coming weeks.
“We’re actually thinking about keeping it a secret, like just Ben and I know, but we’re not sure,” Jessa reportedly said.
While it’s unknown if “19 Kids and Counting” viewers will learn if Jessa is having a boy or a girl ahead of her November due date, Radar Online is reporting there are no plans to make a big fuss of the gender reveal. While the update may send some “19 Kids” viewers into a panic, viewers should remember that the Duggars are fans of filming their gender reveals. Jill, who welcomed her baby boy Israel David with husband Derick Dillard on April 6, celebrated her gender reveal on the show's April 7 episode.
Jessa last updated her fans on her pregnancy on Saturday. “Lunch date with my man!’ Jessa captioned an Instagram shot of herself enjoying a meal at Arby’s with her better half. “Yeah… because ‘the baby’ was craving Arby’s! I love being able to use that excuse,” she wrote.
Ben and Jessa wedding was featured on “19 Kids and Counting" last month. The pair's honeymoon and their 12-month courtship was also showcased on the series. In more recent episodes they have been shown settling into married life.
Their little one is due to arrive on their first wedding anniversary on Nov. 1.
