Life is good for “19 Kids and Counting” stars Jessa Duggar and husband Ben Seewald. The Duggar family has had an exciting year, including weddings, babies and courting. However, this past weekend the Duggars were celebrating for another reason -- Ben’s college graduation!
The 19-year-old political science major graduated from National Park Community College Saturday. Based on a video Jessa posted, it sounded as if he had an excited and loud group on hand to watch him walk across the stage and accept his diploma at the Bank of the Ozarks Arena in Arkansas. In the video, fans of “19 Kids and Counting” can hear loud cheering as Seewald’s name is called. After shaking the hands of the faculty members, Seewald blows a kiss to his wife in the stands.
Besides the video, Jessa also posted some pictures from the event. Ben’s parents, Michael and Guinn, can be seen in the stills, along with his name in the commencement program.
Although Ben hasn’t made his post-graduation plans known, his Facebook bio states he wants to become a pastor or missionary and “preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” He’s also an amateur artist and dad-to-be!
The “19 Kids and Counting” stars have a lot to celebrate. Ben has his 20th birthday coming up Tuesday while Jessa is due to give birth to their first child on Nov. 1. They’ve been busy preparing for their baby while keeping their supporters updated on Jessa’s pregnancy.
