The Duggar family continues to expand with Jessa Duggar Seewald giving birth to her first child, a baby boy.


ABC News reports that Jessa, 23, and husband Ben, 20, were married last year in November and announced in April that Jessa was pregnant.


“Ben and I are so excited to announce that we’re expecting a baby!!!!! The due date is November first, our wedding anniversary!” Jessa tweeted.


Jessa and Ben say they are open to the possibility of having many more children, even as many as 19 like Jessa’s parents.


“Whatever God's plan is, we’d be good with that!" Jessa said. "It's probably not possible for me to have 19 kids naturally, but we might adopt and get up to that number."


The birth of Jessa and Ben’s baby boy comes right after the birth of Jessa’s sister Jill’s baby two weeks ago. The Duggar’s oldest son, Josh, and wife Anna also had a baby in July before it was revealed that Josh was embroiled in the Ashley Madison scandal.
