Ben, 20, and Jessa who turns 23 next week, are expecting their baby on November 1, which coincides with their first wedding anniversary. The Christian couple will welcome their “Baby Quincy” via home birth.
“Ben started calling our little one "Quincy" and the nickname just sorta stuck,” the reality star said on the Duggar Family Blog. As for the baby’s gender, the couple is keeping it secret from their families and followers.
The 19 Kids and Counting member also shared an ultrasound of baby Quincy next to baby pictures of herself and Ben in a photo collage, with a caption saying “I'm thinking BabySeewald will be a sweet mix of the two of us!”
Sitting here dreaming about the moment when we will meet our little one face-to-face... and wondering if our baby will carry more Seewald or Duggar characteristics and features! I&39;m thinking BabySeewald will be a sweet mix of the two of us! ❤️ What do you think? Just 10 more days till baby&39;s due date! ? A photo posted by Jessa Seewald (@jessaseewald) on
Jessa and Ben celebrated the coming of their baby at a co-ed baby shower this month. The celebration was recorded on film for an upcoming TLC special Jill & Jessa: Counting On, featuring the two pretty sisters.
The reality stars are set to appear on a three-part TLC special, making it their first spinoff since the cancellation of their reality show 19 Kids and Counting. A preview of the show was released with Jessa and Jill Dillard getting emotional while talking about the problems their family is facing and the scandals involving their brother Josh Duggar, who is currently in a faith-based rehabilitation facility.
The TLC special is expected to air by the end of the year.
