It’s been a big week in Springdale, Arkansas, as Jessa Duggar and fiancé Ben Seewald are gloating about their new engagement bling, while her older sister Jill proudly announced that there’s another Duggar on the way!
The 23-year-old Jill, who wed now-husband Derick Dillard this past June, says she’s expecting a child with her new spouse.
"We're having a baby!” the 19 Kids & Counting star told People Wednesday, adding that the little one is due in March. "We are so excited."
Dillard, 25, said that finding out he’s going to be a dad was surreal and shocking, and that he and his bride “are so excited."
Proud grandpa Jim Bob told the magazine that the pitter patter of little feet didn’t come too long after the chime of the wedding bells.
He told the magazine that “about 30 days after Jill and Derick got married they gathered everyone in the living room and shared the news.
“Everyone was clapping and cheering, and we were in shock, too."
As far as Jessa, the 21-year-old, who last week announced her engagement to 19-year-old Ben Seewald, posted an image of the backside of her ring on her Instagram page.
She wrote, “Y’all! I still can't believe it! I'M ENGAGED TO THE MOST AMAZING GUY ON EARTH! Every time I look down at the ring on my finger...it takes my breath away! I love you, @ben_seewald!”
"We are thrilled to see what the future holds — especially the wedding bells!” she said. “God has written an amazing story through our courtship, and another chapter has just begun!”
