‘Counting On’: Jessa Duggar And Ben Seewald Welcome Their Fourth Child
The couple, for their part, already have three kids to their name. But it did not slow down their attempts to extend the family further, as they welcomed their fourth child. The news puts an end to the wait that had kept them lingering for so long.
In a post to her fans on Instagram, Jessa shared a picture of herself and the baby being delivered. We can see that Jessa went through a lot of pain during the birth. The post was captioned by the following comments: “Baby Seewald #4 has arrived!”
The couple are bound to be delighted for several reasons. First of all, the delivery had been very difficult as Jessa was experiencing painful contractions for several days. Although she is no stranger to having children, it did leave her with a lot of pain to suffer.
Not only that, the pair had tragically dealt with a miscarriage last year. Whilst this is no substitute for that child, it does soften the blow a little as the duo can now pour their energy into this baby. In a prior interview with Entertainment Tonight, Jessa confirmed how she was grateful to have the chance to be pregnant again.
She noted: “After the heartbreaking loss of a baby last year, we’re overjoyed to share that another little Seewald is on the way. We are so grateful to God for the precious gift of a new life!” Nevertheless, Jessa will have to prepare herself for the criticism that is going to follow.
She has previously been criticised for her approach to parenting. Even though there is no clear handbook on what makes a perfect parent, it has still not stopped the haters from bashing her.
In a previous interview, she remarked: “Whenever I look at people who are super, super negative or super hateful in their comments, a lot of times they’re not real people. It’s zero followers created specifically for hating.” It is nice to see the couple have some great news, and we wish them the best with their future.
