Jessa Duggar & Ben Seewald Are Engaged!

Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald

We’ve been speculating about it for quite some time now, and it looks like Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald are FINALLY engaged. The young couple, who have been courting for almost a year now, made the big announcement to People magazine on Friday morning.

What’s more, despite the fact that they are just now allowed to hold hands and can’t smooch until their wedding day, they’re already planning to have 20 or more kids of their own.

But their plans come with quite a twist.


Even though Jessa and Ben are looking to have a big family just like her parents Jim Bob and Michelle, the couple are planning to take a different route to get theirs -- adoption.

While Ben says that he’s leaving their baby making plans in “God’s hands,” the couple is looking to break tradition by opening up their home to children in need. Jessa said:

We are talking about our goals and even just like future, with family, we both talked about adoptions. We are open to having children and both want to adopt, too.

With so many children in this world looking for a loving home to live in, Jessa and Ben are doing a wonderful thing if they adopt, especially if they want a big family. Kudos to them, and congratulations. Let the wedding planning begin!

Are you surprised by Jessa and Ben’s adoption plans?
