While attending the Southern Woman's Show in Orlando, Florida, on September 26, Jessa said she is going to do parenting differently than her super Christian parents, Jim Bob and Michelle. First, she's not going to name her kids with the same first letter. "We thought to ourselves, if we do that, we'll kind of limit our name selection," her husband Ben, 20, explained, according to Entertainment Tonight. "We thought maybe we'll keep our options open."
