Counting On star Jessa Seewald (née Duggar) has announced the arrival of her fourth child with her husband Ben. Jessa teased the news on her Instagram and directed her followers to learn more about her birth story (and all the details) on her YouTube channel.
In her YouTube videos, which were shared in two parts, she describes how she was feeling leading up to experiencing contractions. She ended her first video with her and Ben going to the hospital on July 18th when her contractions were three minutes apart. In part 2 of her birth story video, the reality star took her subscribers inside her labor, watching as she listened to praise music and getting an epidural. She ended up needing a second epidural as the first one didn’t work.
Eventually, the video documented the arrival of Jessa and Ben’s fourth child, to which Jessa cried tears of joy as her little one was placed on her chest. It’s a girl!
The couple continued the video by showing their other three children: Spurgeon, Henry, and Ivy, meeting their baby sister. They did this via FaceTime as the hospital had strict visiting hours. During the introduction, the couple shared their baby girl’s name: Fern Elliana Seewald!
At the end of their Part 2 video, the couple shared that the story was to be continued, where they will apparently be sharing video footage from when Fern meets her three siblings.
Congratulations to Jessa and Ben on welcoming their fourth child into the world! We wish them all the best as they transition to life as a family of six.
