Jessa Duggar took to social media to share her son’s four month birthday with the world, revealing a photo of the proud parents with the adorable infant. Although the past few months have been a whirlwind for Duggar, she’s been able to detail her daily life with baby Spurgeon since the minute he was born.
In the cute snap, Jessa poses with her husband, Ben Seewald, along with the baby, who is in a car seat. Like most new moms, Jessa seems to have figured out the car seat is the easiest way to tote an infant around! While Jessa and Ben smile at the camera, Spurgeon seems lost in thought as he looks off camera.
Mr. Spurgeon will be 4 months old this week! Yayyyy!!!???????????????????????? ???????? lol! He ain't gotta clue, but Papi and I are celebrating for him over a pint of white chocolate raspberry ice cream @loblollycreamery! ????#CelebrateAllTheMilestones ????#AnyExcuseForIceCream ???? Please tell me I'm not the only one. ????
Although Jessa admitted that the baby “ain’t gotta clue” that it was his four-month birthday, the proud parents still celebrated, sharing with Duggar fans that she and Ben celebrated the milestone “for him over a pint of white chocolate raspberry ice cream” at an eatery in Little Rock, Arkansas. Jessa implored her Instagram fans to “[p]lease tell me I’m not the only one” who loves celebrating with ice cream!
The world first caught a glimpse of the baby boy in the three-part series of Jill & Jessa: Counting On that premiered last year. The series followed Jessa as she transitions into motherhood, and in the final episode, viewers were able to watch Spurgeon’s birth.
Jessa opted to have her baby naturally, admitting in the final episode of the season that labor “is painful.” Despite her commitment to a natural birth, Jessa almost caved in to go to the hospital.
“It just kept dragging on,” Ben confessed about the two days Jessa was in labor.
“She was in pain, so I was feeling the pain too,” the new father added.
Since the episode aired, Jessa has consistently given fans glimpses of the adorable infant, and with the new season of Jill & Jessa: Counting On set to premiere March 15, Duggar fans will get even more looks at Spurgeon.
Even though the series is titled Jill & Jessa: Counting On, the new series will feature not just Jill Dillard and Jessa Seewald, but the other Duggar children as well. In particular, the series is rumored to focus on Jana Duggar and her love life as she starts courting.
A new photo released by the Duggar family has Jill & Jessa: Counting Fans all a-twitter, as there’s a man in the background nobody can identify. Duggar fans are speculating the unidentified male might be Jana’s new boyfriend. Fingers are crossed until the first episode of Jill & Jessa Counting On airs March 15.
Although the Duggar family is back on air, which also includes Josh Duggar’s wife, Anna, TLC has confirmed that Josh Duggar will not be on the new show. Duggar has been in faith-based rehab since August 2015, and although his stint should be nearing completion, it is not clear when he will actually be released from rehab.
While Jessa Duggar is celebrating her son’s four-month birthday, her sister, Jill Dillard, is rumored to be pregnant again despite doctor’s orders to wait. Dillard was advised to not become pregnant since she might be exposed to the Zika virus in Central America, however, according to the Gospel Herald, her husband, Derick, was spotted with bug spray.
The Instagram photo he shared was captioned, “I knew I could count on Walmart to have what I need to combat that Zika Virus!”
The Gospel Herald has speculated that unless Jill were pregnant, her husband would not be worried about the Zika virus. However, it’s also possible Dillard is just joking around, and the bug spray is just to combat mosquitoes.
Jessa Duggar’s new show, Jill & Jessa: Counting On, starts airing March 15 on TLC.
