The Duggar family rose to fame through their reality shows 19 Kids and Counting and Counting On. And Jessa Duggar has always been at the forefront of the family’s reality TV success. She’s the third-oldest Duggar daughter, but she’s been the focus of the show since it switched gears to become Counting On back in 2015.
Duggar and her husband, Ben Seewald, welcomed their first daughter, Ivy Jane, in late spring last year. Duggar loves showing off her little girl on Instagram, and her recent video has fans thinking that Ivy Jane looks just like her momma.
Duggar and Seewald welcomed their first daughter in May 2019
The Duggars tend to have kids fairly close together, and since they come from a family of 19, there often isn’t much time between pregnancy announcements. At the beginning of 2019, Duggar announced on her Instagram that she and Seewald would be welcoming their third child in late spring of that year.
Duggar and Seewald learned the gender of their baby but opted to keep it a secret from the rest of their family. And in late May, Duggar welcomed the couple’s first daughter, Ivy Jane Seewald. She came unexpectedly, since Duggar’s first two boys had both been a week late — Ivy Jane arrived five days early. Duggar thought she had nearly two weeks left before she’d give birth, but her daughter surprised them all.
Fans think Ivy Jane looks just like her mom in a recent video
Duggar loves posting photos and videos of her kids to social media. Now that her oldest son, Spurgeon, is four years old, he’s starting to develop more of a personality, and Duggar enjoys letting fans watch him grow. She’s said before that both Spurgeon and Henry get along well with Ivy Jane, and the three kids all have the sweetest bond.
Duggar recently posted a video of her son Henry entertaining the nine-month-old little girl. Ivy Jane was laughing nonstop, and though fans thought the laugh was adorable, they really couldn’t get over how much Ivy Jane looks like her mom. “She is literally yours and Spurgeon’s twin!!” one user wrote. “She looks JUST like you!” someone else commented. “She’s your mini me!!!” another person added. Fans also couldn’t get over her daughter’s big eyes and long eyelashes.
Duggar and Seewald will likely have more kids
Right now, the family of five seems to still be learning the ropes of having three kids around the house. But it wouldn’t surprise us if Duggar and Seewald had several more kids. It’s common among the Duggars to start having kids young and continue having them until they pretty much can’t. Duggar has also said in the past that she is hoping to adopt one day, so that could still be on the table for her and Seewald, too.
The couple has welcomed three kids in five years, so they seem to wait about a year between pregnancies. With Ivy Jane’s first birthday coming up in a few months, it’s possible Duggar and Seewald could announce baby no. 4 before the end of the year.
