Duggar-Seewald Summer Update

In a new family vlog Jessa Duggar Seewald shares all about the family’s summer and why she was absent from social media during that time.

The family spent their summer adventuring and working their fixer-upper. They decided to move in expectation of their ever-growing family, as they were quickly filling up their first home. She has shared many updates that they have made to their home on her Instagram page. Over the summer, they made repairs to their privacy fencing, did a ton of landscaping, fixed up a playground area for the kids, expanded the backyard, and added a back deck.

Jessa and Ben currently have 4 children together, Spurgeon, 7, Henry, 6, Ivy, 4, and Fern, 2. Last year, they announced that they experienced a miscarriage. The couple took to Instagram on October 2, 2023 to announce that their rainbow baby was on the way!

“Every heartbeat heard, every ultrasound seen, every appointment with a good report… the worries fade a little bit more. God has blessed us beyond measure, and YOU ARE SO, SO LOVED, my little one.
#rainbowbaby” the caption reads.

In past pregnancies, she has not announced the baby’s gender until birth, and it seems that they are continuing that trend. What is your guess for the Seewald tie-breaker?
