Jessa Seewald, nee Jessa Duggar, got married on November 1st, and made it quite clear she planned to start her family right away. Rumor has it she might be expecting already, but so far nothing has been confirmed. Might there soon be a new little grandchild en route to the 19 Kids and Counting family?

Jessa's sister Jill Duggar Dillard and her husband--married since June--announced their pregnancy within weeks of their marriage. Will Jessa and hubby Ben Seewald follow in their footsteps?

A source told In Touch Weekly that Ben and Jessa believe that sexual relations between a man and woman are one of the greatest gifts God gives married couples.

“They look at sex as a ‘present’ from God and they couldn’t wait to ‘open it’ on their wedding day. I wouldn’t be surprised if Jessa were pregnant already,” the source said.

It wasn't so long ago that Jessa Seewald--then, of course, she was Jessa Duggar--told People magazine of her and Ben's plans to have a big family.

“We both want to have a big family,” Jessa said. “We are talking about our goals and the future with family. We have both talked about adoption and want to adopt, too.”

Jessa Seewald and her husband spent their first Christmas together as husband and wife. Jessa shared photos of the Duggar celebration on Christmas Eve.

She captioned her photo, "It's a very Merry Christmas Christmas Eve at the Duggar household! The gangs all here! @duggarfam @joshduggar @annaduggar @derickdillard @jillmdillard @ben_seewald @amyduggar."

Do you expect a big announcement from the second of the married 19 Kids and Counting daughters is imminent? Might it involve word of a baby for Jessa Seewald?
