Jessa Duggar and hubby Ben Seewald celebrated five months of married life on Wednesday, while awaiting the birth of Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard's first baby. There's lots of excitement in the 19 Kids and Counting family these days.

Since real life takes place a bit quicker than TV life, Jessa and Ben tied the knot back in November, but the wedding only aired on 19 Kids and Counting this past week.

Jessa Duggar took to Instagram to share word of their five 'monthiversary' celebration yesterday.

"Happy 5 "monthiversary" to this handsome husband of mine! Every day with you is the best day of my life! @ben_seewald," she captioned a photo of what appears to be the two of them seated on a plane.

Fans have expected to hear an announcement before now that states Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald are expecting, but no such announcement has been made yet. The family is on pins and needles awaiting word that Jill Duggar is in labor. She is a week overdue with 'Baby Dilly.' That's what she and Derick Dillard have called their unborn son since learning they were expecting.

"I'm really excited to have a future niece or nephew I'll get to spoil," Jessa confessed in a recent episode of 19 Kids and Counting. "It just makes me stop and think: Man, that could be Ben and I real soon."

"I guess I'm ready for it. I mean, I don't think I'd be getting married if I didn't think I was ready to start a family," she added.

It's hard to believe that Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald have already been married for five months. Is there any chance they might already be expecting, but don't want to announce it until after Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard's baby is born?
