Here’s What Jessa Duggar’s Family Thinks Her Baby’s Gender Will Be

Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald recently announced that they’re expecting their third child together. The couple has been married since 2014, and they currently have two young boys. This means everyone is extra curious as to whether the Seewalds will welcome another baby boy or finally have a baby girl. However, they have kept the baby’s gender a secret. But Jessa Duggar’s family has an idea of what she and Seewald will have. Here’s what they think.

Duggar and Seewald announced their third pregnancy in January

Duggar and Seewald took to Instagram in January to tell the world that they were expecting their third child. Duggar posted a photo to her account, which featured her entire family, including sons Spurgeon and Henry. Duggar was wearing a yellow dress that showed the outline of a slight baby bump in the photo. “Happy news from the Seewald family!” the caption read. “Baby #3 is on the way!” She then directed fans to read the blog post she and her husband had written about the arrival of their new baby.

The couple’s new baby is due in June

The Seewalds announced the newest addition to their family was on its way in January. Since most people wait at least three months before announcing a pregnancy, Duggar was probably no less than 12 weeks when she posted the Instagram photo. This made everyone assume the new baby would be arriving in June. Then, Seewald’s mother spilled the tea that the baby was, in fact, due in June. And since Duggar and Seewald said the baby will arrive in late spring, it will probably be here early in the month.  

Duggar and Seewald currently have two boys

The couple is currently parents to two young boys. Spurgeon Elliot is three, and his younger brother, Henry Wilberforce, just celebrated his second birthday. Both Duggar and Seewald come from large families, so it makes sense that they weren’t ready to stop after just two kids. It doesn’t seem like the couple specifically planned their third child’s timing, since most of the Duggars are openly ready to raise however many children God is willing to give them. By the time their newest baby is born, the couple will have had three children in four years, so it’s possible they could be looking at quite a few down the road.

The family believes the third baby will be a girl

When TLC sat down with the other members of Duggar’s family, they were asked whether they thought Duggar and Seewald were going to have a boy or girl. A few family members said boy, but most of them seemed to think the Seewalds would be expecting a girl this time around. Since they already have two boys, it makes sense (from a probability standpoint) that they would have a girl. Both Duggar and Seewald know what she will be having, however they have chosen to keep it a secret from family and friends until after the baby’s arrival.
