Jessa Duggar has been upfront about her desire to have more children with her husband Ben Seewald. They currently share two little boys together and now, they are expecting another bundle of joy. The announcement came in conjunction with the new season being announced.

There has been some talk about adopting as well. It looks like that may be pushed off a bit as Jessa Duggar is currently about halfway through her pregnancy. The couple is excited about adding a new addition, even if they will now be outnumbered by children.

When is Jessa Duggar due?

While the details surrounding the pregnancy are being kept secret, Jessa Duggar did reveal that she was due in late spring.

That indicates that May or June we should see a new Seewald baby being welcomed into the world. Spring runs from March 20 through June 20. Jessa will likely deliver before the weather gets too warm, making pregnancy incredibly uncomfortable.

What is the gender of the baby?

At this point, Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald either don’t know the sex of their child or they are keeping it a secret.

She indicated that she believes it is another boy. Of course, that would be beneficial as they would already have clothing and gear for the new baby because her two other children are also boys.

The couple has also expressed their desire to have a daughter as well, but revealed that they wouldn’t know what to do in some areas and they would essentially be starting over.

It is unclear whether Jessa and Ben intend to share the gender of their child ahead of the birth or if they have simply chosen not to know. They are going to begin a new chapter in life as parents of three, something that they are looking forward to doing.

Counting On returns February 11, 2019, at 9/8c on TLC.
