Duggar, 28, and Seewald, 25, confirmed the news in an Instagram post on Thursday, Feb 18.
“We’re looking forward to summertime, and here’s our #1 reason!” Jessa wrote alongside a sonogram.
“Thank you, God, for this precious gift! #RainbowBaby.”
In a statement to Entertainment Tonight, the personalities, who are also parents to 5-year-old Spurgeon Elliot Seewald, 4-year-old Henry Wilberforce Seewald and 21-month-old Ivy Jane Seewald, revealed they had lost a baby last year.
“After the heartbreaking loss of a baby last year, we’re overjoyed to share that another little Seewald is on the way!” they shared.
“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! The kids are delighted, and we can hardly wait to welcome this little one into our arms this summer.”
Jessa, who is the fifth of Michelle Duggar and Jim Bob Duggar‘s 19 kids, met Ben in 2013. And after a quick dating period, they announced their engagement in August 2014.
The two were married less than three months later and welcomed their first child in November 2015.
Many watched Jessa and her family’s journey on 19 Kids and Counting, which ran from 2008 to 2015, and then on Counting On, the TLC spinoff now heading into its 12th season.
In addition, she also documents her life with Ben and their kids on their YouTube channel.
