Jessa Duggar Celebrates Baby #2 With Massive Shower

With only weeks to go, Jessa (Duggar) Seewald celebrated her second pregnancy with a massive baby shower. The Counting On star included a special twist for her shower too -- she declined to receive any gifts for her new little one.


About 130 guests came to help the soon-to-be mom of two celebrate her new child's impending arrival on January 11. Goodies at the party included meat and cheese trays, vegetable trays, lemon orzo soup and crackers, and a milk-and-cookies bar for dessert.

Jessa hasn't announced the baby's gender, and from the decorations, it's clear she's keeping that a secret for the time being. Heck, maybe she doesn't even know herself! People still do that, you know.


The only "gift" that Jessa got for her shower was a "surprise date night basket" from her party planner, for a fun time out with her hubby Ben Seewald. Any other gifts brought by guests will be donated to Loving Choices Pregnancy Center.


They also assembled 100 care packages for the center, including pens and devotional books for women who visit who may need some encouragement.

Jessa's sister Jill Dillard was in attendance too, sporting her own baby bump. She and Derick recently announced that like Spurgeon, Israel is going to be a big brother again soon. Look at their matching bumps! So cute.


It looks like a good time was had by all. Congrats again to Jessa, Ben, and little Spurgeon!
