The new parents kept mum on the baby's gender during Jessa's pregnancy, but they couldn't be more excited to welcome their baby boy into the world.

Not only have the Seewalds been busy getting ready for the newborn, but they were also filming the journey for a new TLC special. "It's gonna be great," Jessa said at the Southern Women's Show in Orlando on Sept. 28.

"I know it's going to change our lives dramatically," she told attendees at the same event about what life will be like with a child. "It's going to be huge. [Ben and I] were just talking logistics of travel. Right now, we packed all of our stuff in a little suitcase for this weekend trip, and I was like, man, when you have a baby! Our friends have been warning us, 'You're going to have car seats and strollers and a huge bag for all the baby stuff -- diapers, and whatever, extra change of clothes in case something happens.'"

This is the sixth grandchild for Michelle and Bob Duggar, who rose to fame with their TLC reality show, the since-cancelled19 Kids and Counting. The two are already grandparents to son Josh Duggar's four children with wife Anna -- Mackynzie Renee, Michael James, Marcus Anthony and Meredith Grace -- and daughter Jessa (Duggar) Dillard's son with husband Derick, Israel David.
