Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald: Already Planning Baby #3!
Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald welcomed their second child February 6, but they’re already talking about growing their brood once more.
Too soon? For regular people, most likely.
Would you expect anything less though?
The couple’s second little boy arrived just 15 months after they became parents to Spurgeon Elliot and 26 months after they tied the knot.
Soon after the child’s birth last week, we learned that Jessa Duggar baby name selections aren’t getting any more ordinary with time:
Henry Wilberforce Seewald has arrived.
So far, the young couple seems to be in good spirits when it comes parenting both boys, attributing it to their ability to tag-team them.
There’s one for each adult, after all.
“I take one. He takes the other,” Jessa tells unofficial Duggar publication People, which features the family in its new cover story this week.
Ben added a sports metaphor:
“Right now with two kids and two of us, it’s man-to-man coverage. When we have more, we’ll have to switch things up to a zone defense!”
As Jessa has said, Ben is super psyched about having little boys to play sports with in the future, and clearly that’s on his brain already.
As far as when that zone defense is going to be necessary, we feel safe in guessing that it won’t be all that long in the grand scheme.
Especially not if they adopt.
Jessa told the magazine, “It will be a little while since we just had a baby, but adopting and fostering to adopt is very much in our hearts.”
The Counting On stars have asserted their desire to adopt children many times before, going back to when they had no kids yet even.
None of her mother Michelle’s 19 kids are adopted, but this has been something Jessa has long been passionate about, as has Ben.
Having been married two years, their efforts to do so will be looked upon more favorably by adoption agencies, which is another bonus.
One obstacle, though?
Their house. It’s small, and when you’re planning on breeding or adopting an entire football team, you need additional square footage.
No matter how good you are at economizing space, this is just a reality, and according to Jessa, they may be planning to do an upgrade.
Jessa, 24, revealed as much, telling People that it’s fine now, but, “We just need a little more space. We’re always checking the market!”
You never know when your dream house will come along, it’s true. But does that mean they’re actively planning baby number three?
“It’s certainly within the realm of possibilities. But still, we’ll wait just a couple of months before we start speculating again,” she said.
There you have it, everyone.
Big families are great, but relax and give them at least a couple of months before she gets pregnant or they adopt another kid, okay?
They just had a baby! Chill!
