"We are so excited. The due date is November first, our wedding anniversary," said Jessa.
Jessa revealed she found out she was pregnant right before attending church on Sunday, and said that the couple has already started thinking of baby names. “We are so excited. We have started talking baby names. It is one of those things that is so special, picking a name for a baby."
Last month, Jessa and Ben told the magazine they were thinking about adopting their first child, and said those plans haven’t changed, but might be put on hold until after the arrival of their new little boy or girl.
"Our hearts haven't changed on adoption," Jessa said. "We are still making plans." Ben added, "We are trying to take it one day at a time.”
Jessa's older sister Jill and husband Derick Dilard just welcomed their new son, Israel David, on April 6 after an intense, 70-hour labor, but Jessa says she’s not worried. "I am not comparing, not worrying about what could happen, we are just getting prepared.”
“I think having this first year together to share our lives, just the two of us, has been special. We are definitely excited to be parents."
A special message from the couple will air during tonight's episode of their hit show “19 Kids & Counting,” at 9 pm on TLC.
