According to a new report, Jessa Duggar and husband Ben Seewald, 22, are adding a third member to their family.
In Touch was the first to report on Wednesday that the 25-year-old Duggar girl is approximately four months along and is going to share the baby news sometime next month.
A source divulged the duo have been keeping the news ‘under wraps’ to avoid upstaging Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson’s engagement.
The couple also wanted to take the precautionary steps so they deciding to hold off on announcing the news too soon because Jessa’s pregnancy ‘was in the early stages.’
The forthcoming baby will join the couple’s 13-month-old son Henry Wilberforce and two-year-old son Spurgeon Elliot.

Out shopping for groceries – AND – a new phone for Dad, since the 2-year-old did an experiment of sink or swim… in the toilet. It did not swim. “Mommy, fix it!” “Umm…did you spill water?” Ben: There’s water on the rim of the toilet. Screen was black. Phone was boiling hot and completely fried. Ha! Parents can attest, sometimes you gotta laugh so you don’t cry. 😂 Can’t stay mad for more than a sec tho… he’s such a cute little stinker! 😆💙👦🏻
In celebration of their 3 year anniversary, the 22-year-old reality star wrote a heartfelt letter on the family blog to her husband.
She wrote ‘I thought we’d reached the pinnacle of our love on this day, three years ago… but since then, you’ve taken me from the mountain top up into the clouds! Darling, I love you more today than ever before.’
‘Sure, we worked through our squabbles and disagreements, like anyone else. But because of your meekness and gentleness in the midst of trials, I always come out loving you even more,’ she went on to write.

Best friends forever. 💞 I thank God for giving me such a caring, compassionate, patient, thoughtful, understanding, selfless, loving, godly husband. I’m reminded daily just how blessed I am to be married to you. I don’t know another man who is as quick to ask forgiveness when he messes up as you are. I don’t know another dad who is more involved in the diapers, cuddles, wrestling matches and training moments as you are. I don’t know another man who is as sensitive to the emotions and feelings of others as you are. You’re a priceless treasure. God blessed me beyond in giving me you.
Among the many blessings brought upon Jessa the most cherished is Ben’s commitment to his faith. She went on to reveal, ‘Many a time I have walked into the spare bedroom and discovered you there, kneeling beside the bed, in prayer… and it’s brought tears to my eyes.’
Jessa and Ben exchanged their vows in the presence of God in November 2014, at First Baptist Church in Bentonville, Arkansas. Nearly 2000 family and friends were in attendance for the nuptials.
Maybe a baby girl will be joining the Seewald brood…
