ben seewald jessa duggarIt's the news we've all been waiting for: Jessa (Duggar) Seewald has just announced that she's expecting her first child with husband Ben Seewald. Just five months after their November 1 wedding, Jessa and Ben reveal that their first child is actually due to arrive on their first wedding anniversary.


The couple revealed that they are just entering their second trimester, and their first "Baby Seewald" will be here this fall.

"We're expecting!" says Jessa. "We are so excited. The due date is November first, our wedding anniversary."

Jessa also shared the first photo of their baby bump, and it's true -- she's glowing.

So far, the mom-to-be is experiencing the typical bout of pregnancy symptoms. "I am feeling pretty good," she says. "The morning sickness was different every day. It's getting better, but I'm still hanging on to the heartburn. And I don't have any super serious food cravings."

The couple -- who had previously said that they plan to adopt -- found out shortly before attending church one Sunday. Jessa took a pregnancy test and lo and behold, all signs point to positive.

"I said, 'Hey Ben, guess what? Yeah, you're a dad.' We couldn't believe it," she tells People. "We are so excited. We have started talking baby names. It is one of those things that is so special, picking a name for a baby."

The news comes just two weeks after Jessa's older sister, Jill, welcomed her first child, so it looks like little Israel will have another cousin in just a few short months.

And as for Dad? He's feeling pretty great. "We are looking forward to being parents," he says.

Congratulations to the family!
