One of 19 kids (and counting!) Jessa Duggar is bound to have an ever-growing brood of her own with husband Ben Seewald. And while her older sister Jill Duggar is preparing to welcome her first child with hubby Derick Dillard, the newlyweds are talking about starting a family of their own – by adopting!
The cute couple opened up to People magazine about expanding their family through adoption. “We hope to adopt a lot of kids,” Jessa told the magazine. “If God blesses us with biological kids of our own, it’s not going to quench our desire to adopt.” Her 19-year-old husband added, “Kids are so important.”
Married since November, the newlyweds dished how they are still in the honeymoon stage, even when it comes to disagreements! “We try not to argue,” Ben said, as the 22-year-old added, “If we have a hard time and we talk about it, you just love each other so much more afterwards. After a disagreement, I often feel, ‘I have never loved you more than I love you now.'” So sweet!
But Jessa admitted that married life does come with its share of struggles. “One thing I’ve had to adjust to is not having my siblings around – especially my sisters because we are so close,” the 19 Kids and Counting star explained.
Luckily for her, she has her new husband to help her adjust! “But I am so happy to be married to you,” she told him.
