Jessa Duggar married boyfriend Ben Sewald late last year, and they couldn’t wait to start ripping each other’s clothes off and going at it. Hell, they apparently didn’t even make it out of the church! I called it early on that she’d end up pregnant pretty soon, and that’s exactly what’s happened. Jessa and Ben are expecting their first child!
“We’re expecting!” Jessa, 22, tells PEOPLE. “We are so excited. The due date is November first, our wedding anniversary.” Adds Ben, 19, “We are looking forward to being parents.”
Uh, did two human beings put this statement out, or did robots put it together? I mean, use contraction’s, for goodness’ sake.
“I am feeling pretty good,” says Jessa. “The morning sickness was different every day. It’s getting better, but I’m still hanging on to the heartburn. And I don’t have any super-serious food cravings.”
Before church one Sunday morning, Jessa says she took a pregnancy test and brought it in to show Ben.
“I said, ‘Hey Ben, guess what? Yeah, you’re a dad.’ We couldn’t believe it,” Jessa says. “We are so excited. We have started talking baby names. It is one of those things that is so special, picking a name for a baby.”
Is she worried about having a horrendous 70-hour labour like her older sister Jill, who gave birth on April 6th (MY BIRTHDAY!)? Nah… for now.
“I am not comparing, not worrying about what could happen, we are just getting prepared,” Jessa says. “I think having this first year together to share our lives, just the two of us, has been special. We are definitely excited to be parents.”
Congrats, I guess. Here’s a creepy pic Jessa’s sister-in-law Anna posted on social media as a form of celebration:
That’s Jill on the left, Anna in the middle. Man oh man.
