In keeping up with the Duggar tradition of providing the public a blow-by-blow account of every tiny tot born in their family, Jessa Duggar Seewald posted a picture on her Facebook account of herself cradling her large bump with husband Ben looking on.
At least 26,341 people liked the photo within 11 hours of it being posted. Jessa looked resplendent in a floral stretch top, denim skirt and yellow cardigan. The 19 Kids and Counting star didn't pass a chance to remind her followers that the baby is soon to pop out.
"7 days till #BabySeewald's due date!" she captioned. Overzealous netizens echoed the expectant mother's excitement by posting bubbling comments in support of Jessa and husband Ben, plus endless speculation about the baby.
To celebrate the coming event, one Facebook user, 81-year-old Nancy Pewton remarked: "My great-granddaughter and her husband presented me with my first great great grandchild the 7th of this month. Chandler Mason Sweetman. I now have 25 grandchildren. 27 great grandchildren and my first great great grandchild. I have 5 children. What a journey I have had. I am now 81 This Dec. Enjoy every moment."
Meanwhile The Daily Mail reports that despite being on the brink of giving birth to a new child, the Seewalds are already making plans for getting even more children through adoption. This intent had already come out in the Duggars' family blog where Jessa made references to adoption as a "reminder of God's love for us in adopting us into His family."
In fact, Ben Seewald is set to start adoption classes in 2016 while the couple admits that they have already started the process in fulfilling requirements.
Fans of the hit reality TV series are also eager to see if Jessa's sister, Jill Dillard, will be coming home to assist in the delivery of her sister's child, The Inquisitr reports. Jill Duggar Dillard and her husband, Derick Dillard are in Guatemala to continue fulfilling requirements for their missions work and learning Spanish. However, speculations are rife that Jill will be home in early November in time for the coming of her new niece or nephew.
Last September 19, Jill announced to the world that her final midwifery exam was a success and that she was now officially a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM). Given that the sisters are starring in a TV special focusing on their lives, sources close to the family are confident that Jill delivering her sister Jessa's baby is a real possibility that will be happening soon.
