“The pregnancy is going smoothly, and both baby and Jessa are doing well. We are so grateful to God for the precious gift of a new life!

“I’m feeling great, glad to be out of the first trimester. I was pretty sick but feeling good now, have more energy.“
She also explained the overall excitement in the house for a new sibling, adding: “Spurgeon and Henry are very excited. They understand. We have little pregnancy apps on my phone that we look at and they get to see updates of the baby’s progress and growth.”
Jessa and Ben were married in November of 2014 and welcomed their first son just a year later.
The TLC couple has maintained a tradition of not announcing the gender and keeping it a secret from their family until the baby arrives, and will continue to do so for this child.

Rumors began to spread during Thanksgiving last year when the young mom was seen donning sweatpants at a family gathering.
Fans rushed to Reddit to share their theories over the possibility, one writing: “Blessa wearing her only 2 pairs of sweat pants to Thanksgiving at the Seewalds? Colour me shocked.”
“I bet she’s pregnant,” another speculated shortly.

Jessa also seemed to cover up her “bump” in a family holiday photo in December, keeping to baggy attire throughout the entire Christmas season.
Followers of the Duggar family believed the reality star to have been pregnant in March of 2020, though she never formally announced the news.
Months later she and her husband divulged that they were indeed pregnant during the pandemic but had lost the child.
