During Jessa and Ben Seewald's European honeymoon episode of "19 Kids and Counting," the newlywed couple had a very exciting announcement to make to their fans...

"We are so excited to announce we're expecting a baby! We are in week 12 right now, and things are going great," said Jessa Seewald on "19 Kids and Counting."

People broke the news just hours before the episode aired, and Jessa told the outlet their little bundle of joy's due date is November 1, their wedding anniversary. How... timely!

Unlike her big sister Jill, who just gave birth to her son Israel last week, Jessa decided to wait until her second trimester to announce her big baby news.

But as The Huffington Post pointed out, this new baby is only the beginning for the ever-expanding Duggar/Seewald family.

"Jessa and Ben have spoken about wanting to adopt children, in addition to having biological children, and ... they still plan to do so."

Hollywood Life called the news "exciting," saying that the "family will be swimming in babies soon." Because apparently that wasn't already the case.

Well, regardless, congratulations to the happy couple!

This weekend, Duggar will join her husband and their 17 children to celebrate Mother's Day with brunch at a hotel in downtown Little Rock. Their youngest child, Jennifer, is 9 months old.

No. 19 caught Michelle Duggar by surprise. The 42-year-old mom of 18 noticed that she wasn't losing weight, even though she and husband Jim Bob were on Weight Watchers, and her youngest child, 8-month-old Jordyn-Grace, was fussing while nursing. In the past, she found a fussy infant meant a change in breast milk that came with pregnancy. (AP Photo/ Beth Hall, File)
