Jessa gave birth to her first child last week.
Despite the difficult times my family faced over the last few months, I can’t tell you how excited I am to be a first-time mom. Ben and I can’t stop smiling.”
Part of that might be the almost-delirious state that comes from round-the-clock care for a newborn- LOL. No, seriously, I’m sure they are thrilled.
As you can imagine, they didn’t have as much to smile about six months ago, when Josh Duggar publicly admitted to sexual molesting several girls while a teenager. Jessa said of that time:
Sometimes, it is uncomfortable, the things you see, the things you read, especially when things are reported in an inaccurate way – it’s not always nice.
“I don’t Google my name. There’s no reason for that, or to look to other people for that validation. We know who we are and find joy and satisfaction in God.”
As long as you have the love of God, it doesn’t matter if everyone in the world hates you. Just having God’s acceptance is what matters.”
They have their priorities straight. It seems kind of odd to me that they are openly courting the spotlight, given all that’s gone on, but I guess there’s no reason for them to “go into hiding,” so to speak, over Josh’s actions, is there?
