"We are so excited to introduce our little baby boy to the world,” said Jessa, 24, in a video posted by TLC.

The former 19 Kids and Counting star also explained that she's excited that the couple now have two boys who are "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," she shared. "I know Ben’s probably going to have them out in the backyard playing football before too long."

Jessa also opened up about the emotional moments after giving birth, recalling, "When the baby was finally born and we got to hold him for the first time, I started crying. And I think Ben had tears in his eyes."

"We want to thank everyone for their love and prayers and support for us during this labor and delivery," Jessa added.

The pair, who said it was "a challenge" to keep their baby's gender under wraps, admitted that they still haven’t thought of a name for their newborn son.

"This baby's probably gonna have a unique name, sort of like Spurgeon's" Ben, 21, shared. "But we haven't quite settled on a name yet. We have some pretty good ideas."

"But we want to be sure before we make it official," Jessa added.

The couple made a bit of a big deal when they officially revealed Spurgeon's name in November 2015, almost two weeks after he was born. According to Ben at the time, the unique name comes from the 19th-century theologian, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, whose writings and sermons "had a big impact on our lives."

Hours after their new baby boy was born, the couple took to Instagram to share a heartwarming photo of their precious progeny, writing, "#BabySeewald2 is here and we couldn't be more in love!"
