Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald named their first daughter Ivy Jane and the inspiration behind her moniker is rather shocking! The Counting On stars made their video debut since Ivy was born on May 26 and told audiences all about her name, Jessa’s time in labor, and how they feel about having a little girl.

“We just liked those two names,” Ben, 24, revealed in a TLC video on June 3. The Counting On star added, “Jessa and I talked about it beforehand this time around, and we actually had a name picked out before she was born. We just liked the way the names flowed together.”
According to the couple, her middle name, Jane, had a special meaning. “She’s actually named after Lady Jane Grey, who was a young lady who was Queen of England for a short time during the 1500s. She was a very inspirational character to us.” The couple, however, didn’t elaborate on how they specifically related to the former Queen.
Jessa also assured fans that she was feeling good after delivery. The reality star described Ivy’s arrival as a “quick birth” and revealed she was only in labor for less than three hours.
