“We are overjoyed that God has blessed us with a baby, due late this spring!” Jessa, 26, told People.
Jessa and Ben, 23, have yet to find out the gender of their baby, but she admitted they both think they’re having another boy. The couple already has two sons, Spurgeon, 3, and Henry, 1.
“If our predictions are right then we already have a ton the clothing and accessories ready to pass down! At the same time, we would absolutely love it if we found out we were having a girl — though we’ve joked that we’d be starting from square one and might have to learn a few things,” Jessa said.
Ben confessed he’s a bit nervous about going from two to three kids! “We realize that, in going from two to three kids, we’re about to switch from man-to-man to zone coverage, so we’ve definitely been taking advice from friends who are already in this stage!” he told the mag.
He noted that their son Spurgeon is excited about getting another younger sibling. “Henry doesn’t have a clue what’s coming, but Spurgeon understands and he talks about the baby quite a bit. Seeing our boys meet their new sibling for the first time is something we are really looking forward to!” he said.
Jessa has been open about her desire for another baby. When her sister Jinger gave birth to daughter Felicity in July, Jessa said she had “baby fever.” Added Ben, “We love being parents and are really looking forward to this new arrival!”
