So we know that at least two of the Duggars are preparing a return to TV with some TLC specials! Jessa Duggar Seewald, who’s missed out on the chance to have her first pregnancy documented on reality TV like her sister Jill Duggar Dillard did, is looking forward to her TLC special. While Jill’s specials will follow her, husband Derick Dillard, and their baby son Israel doing mission work in South America, Jessa’s special will follow her and husband Ben Seewald as they get ready to welcome their first child.
Jessa’s been sharing baby bump pictures on Instagram:
She had this to say about her upcoming TLC special:
We’re excited. We’re looking forward to this. We’re going to be doing some filming, preparing to welcome this little one into our lives. It’s gonna be great.”
I’m glad Jessa’s getting the chance to share her pregnancy experience on TV. It has always seemed rather unfair to me that she suffered such a punishment for what was ultimately Josh Duggar’s awful behavior.
Jessa’s preparing herself for the major life transition of becoming a parent.
I know it’s going to change our lives dramatically. It’s going to be huge. [Ben and I] were just talking logistics of travel. Right now, we packed all of our stuff in a little suitcase for this weekend trip, and I was like, man, when you have a baby! Our friends have been warning us, ‘You’re going to have car seats and strollers and a huge bag for all the baby stuff.'”
Yeah: babies have some serious gear! One thing Jessa and Ben are considering, of course, is baby names. All of the Duggar children have names that start with “J.” So are the Seewalds planning on following that tradition? Ben explained:
We thought to ourselves, if we do that, we’ll kind of limit our name selection. We thought maybe we’ll keep our options open.”
That makes sense. Are you looking forward to Jessa’s and Jill’s TLC specials?
