Jessa Duggar: Baby Name Revealed on Social Media?
It’s been one week since Jessa Duggar welcomed her second son, and she and husband Ben Seewald still haven’t revealed the kid’s name.
That’s not unusual for the Seewalds, as they’re in the habit of waiting until a baby is born to pick a name so that they choose a moniker that fits the child’s disposition.
At this point, it seems Jessa and Ben have settled on a name, but they’re not yet willing to share it with fans.
However, they may have dropped some major hints on their social media pages.
Though Jessa and Ben haven’t confirmed that they’ve officially named the child, Ben’s mother, Guinn Seewald, seems to have spilled the tea on Facebook.
Guinn posted a satus update last week reading:
“Jessa had a boy Monday morning at 4am. 8lbs 11oz. And all is well with mom and baby. I believe Ben and Jessa finally decided on a name this morning and will announce soon.”
So unless Ben’s mom is being misled for some reason, it looks like a name has been chosen.
Fortunately for the couple’s nosier fans, Ben and Jessa enjoy dropping hints on social media.
Jessa’s first baby, Spurgeon, is named after Charles Spurgeon, a 19th-century British preacher.
In the days before she and Ben announced his name, they both posted sermons by the original Spurgeon on their Instagram pages.
Now, fans are eagerly looking for similar hints on Jessa’s social media pages, and they’ve been sharing their findings on social media.
Jessa posted a hymn by Charles Wesley in the final days of her pregnancy.
The Seewalds eschewed the first name Charles with Spurgeon, and they may do that again and go with Wesley.
But that’s not the only late theologian who’s received a shout-out from Jessa in recent weeks.
She also posted lyrics to a hymn by A.W. Tozer, but we’re really hoping they’re not going with Tozer.
Currently, it seems the most widely accepted theory has to do with Jessa’s newfound fondness for the evangelist J. Wilbur Chapman.
Jessa’s been posting quotes from Chapman, and it seems he authored a biography of D.L. Moody, namesake of the Moody Bible Institute where Ben studied.
So Chapman Duggar?
It could be worse.
Like, for example, Wilbur Duggar.
