While the Duggar family is definitely growing — Jinger Duggar andJoseph Duggar’s wife Kendra are both pregnant — Jessa Duggar isn’t adding another baby into the mix just yet. The Counting On star is not pregnant with her third child, the Duggar family’s rep confirms to Us Weekly.
Reports that Duggar and her husband, Ben Seewald, were expecting baby No. 3 made headlines earlier this week. E! Newswas the first to debunk the rumors.
Duggar, 25, and Seewald, 22, have two sons together: Spurgeon Elliot, 2, and Henry Wilberforce, 13 months. The couple wed in 2014 at the First Baptist Church in Bentonville, Arkansas, and their nuptials were documented on season 10 of their family’s hit TLC show.
The reality TV personality opened up about being a mother of two in February 2017 after they welcomed Henry.
“I think it’s really awesome that we have two little boys so close together in age,” she said at the time to TLC. “I know they’re gonna be best friends and love growing up and doing everything together. So I’m looking forward to seeing that, and Ben’s probably gonna have ‘em out in the backyard playing football not before too long in the next couple years.”
Back in April 2016, Duggar admitted to Us Weekly that while she is lucky to have her mother Michelle — who shares 19 children with husband Jim Bob — for advice, she is may “do something things differently” when it comes to raising her own kids.
“Every time I come to my mom for advice, she always reminds me that I’ve got this,” she told Us at the time. “There’s no pressure to do things just exactly how she did them, but I’m so grateful for all her advice and help. Even when I feel overwhelmed, she’s always there to encourage me and tell me, ‘You’re doing a great job!’ That gives me the courage to trust my instincts and do what I feel is best for my baby.”
Counting On airs on TLC Mondays at 9 p.m. ET.
