Prepare the drum roll.
Drop any heavy machinery you may be operating.
Move to the edge of your seat.
Because Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald have an important announcement to make…
One week after welcoming their second child into the world, the TLC reality stars sat with both kids and confirmed the name of baby number-two.
Say hello in the photo above, video below and pictures that follow to… Henry Wilberforce!
Oh, yes, you read that correctly: Henry Wilberforce.
“We just thought it was cute, but also there was another great man of God named Matthew Henry who lived before Wilberforce and he wrote a lot of great commentaries,” Seewald explains in this network-sponsored footage.
The couple also decided on Henry simply because Jessa “really likes it,” according to the couple.
Little Henry joined 15-month old sibling Spurgeon (and MANY, MANY cousins) early on the morning of February 6.
He was born at 4:26 a.m. the day after Super Bowl LI, weighing in at the time at 8 pounds, 11 ounces and measuring just under 22 inches in length.
“Mom and baby are both doing well. We are so thankful to God for this precious new gift of life and are excited to be a family of four!” Ben and Jessa told People Magazine upon announcing their addition, adding last week:
“Thanks to everyone for your prayers and well wishes!”
Jessa gave birth to her first child, also a boy, back in November of 2015, going with the unusual name of Spurgeon Seewald in this case. It actually does have a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?
Prior to Spurgeon meeting his brother, Jessa was confident that the kids would get along very well.
“We know Spurgeon will do a great job in his new role,” Jessa said a few weeks back.
She then shared an adorable photo of Henry on her Instagram page just a day after he was born.
“#BabySeewald2 is here and we couldn’t be more in love!” she wrote as a caption to the following image, later updating her and Ben’s blog with more precious information.
“We are so happy to announce the arrival of our sweet second son,” she wrote, reiterating the child’s measurements and letting everyone know:
“Mom and baby are both doing well.”
Last Wednesday, meanwhile, Duggar and Seewald shared the first photo of the new family of four together on the sofa, along with a short video clip of baby Seewald.
“We are so excited to introduce our little baby boy to the world,” Jessa said, continuing:
“I think it’s really awesome that we have two little boys so close together in age. I know they’re going to be best friends and love growing up and doing everything together, so I’m looking forward to seeing that.
“I know Ben’s probably going to have them out in the backyard playing football in the next couple of years!”
Oh, that Ben. As those who watch Counting On online can attest to, he probably really will be doing this!!!
Jessa and Ben have been married since November 2014.
They’ve talked in the past about adoption and anyone remotely familiar with this famous family knows that the couple won’t stop at two kids.
Or three kids. And probably not four or five kids, either.
Until they procreate again, Jessa and Ben can look forward to a new member of their extended family entering the world at some point in the pretty near future.
Yup, Jill Duggar is pregnant with her second child.
We’re excited to announce that baby’s birth in a couple months, along with Jessa’s inevitable third pregnancy.
What do you think of the name Henry Wilberforce?
