Jessa Seewald isn't letting the string of scandals surrounding brother, Josh Duggar, get her down. In August it was revealed that the father of four had been linked to Ashley Madison, a popular cheating site. The news came just months after it was reported that he had molested five young girls, three of which were his siblings, at the age of 14. While the scandal has cast a dark cloud of the entire Duggar family, sources say Jessa, 22, has done her best to remain positive.
In fact, it's been reported that "she is happier than ever" right now. People magazine reports the former "19 Kids and Counting" star is thrilled to show both fans and her doubters just how well things are going for her. Jessa, who is expecting her first baby Nov. 1, is focusing on her health and her expanding family with husband Ben Seewald.
"Jessa is truly feeling so happy, healthy and centered. This is really one of the best times of her life," the source said. "Her love for Ben is really something to see. They adore each other, and it's clear that they're soul mates. He treats her like a true queen."
Jessa will have the opportunity to allow viewers into her personal life once more as she and sister Jill Dillard team up for two TLC specials focused on their lives. Each episode is slated to premiere by the end of 2015. According to a Facebook post by their parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, the shows will highlight Jill and her husband Derrick Dillard's missions trip abroad as well as the birth of Jessa and Ben's first child. It is unclear which other members of the Duggar family, if any, will be featured in the specials.
It has been reported that Jessa and her hubby are considering putting some distance between themselves and the Duggar family, creating even more uncertainty about who will appear in the upcoming shows. During an appearance at the Southern Women's Show in Orlando, Florida, on Sept. 26 Jessa told attendees that, due to Ben's desire to join a seminary, they may be forced to move. She said nothing was set in stone, but should the situation arise she and her beau would be more than willing to relocate.
