Jessa says she took a pregnancy test before Sunday church recently and then brought it to show her new husband. "I said, 'Hey Ben, guess what? Yeah, you're a dad.' We couldn't believe it," she recalls. "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."
Jessa's baby news means her sister's son Israel will have a cousin to play with that'll definitely make some already cute pics even cuter! Jill, 23, and Derick, 26, welcomed their baby boy on April 6 after a whopping 70-hour labor that ended in an emergency C-section. However, the reality star says her sister's story doesn't scare her.
"I am not comparing, not worrying about what could happen, we are just getting prepared," she shares. "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."
Her husband adds, "We are trying to take it one day at a time. We pray every night that God helps us be good parents. We are getting advice from other parents."
Jessa and Ben have expressed interest in adopting in the past, and insist that they are still planning to do this one day. "Our hearts haven't changed on adoption," Jessa says. According to People, the agency the couple is working with requires a couple to be married for two years. "We are still making plans."
