Jessa Duggar and her husband, Ben Seewald, are still planning to expand their family, and adoption is on the cards.
Jessa Duggar grew up in a very conservative family. Her parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, do not use contraception. The Duggar couple has 19 kids who inspired their reality show 19 Kids and Counting.
The Counting On star could be following her parents because after having three children, she is still open to having more kids. However, she could take another route as she is considering adoption.
Jessa Duggar and husband are considering adoption
Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald have three children Spurgeon, 4, Henry 3, and Ivey, 1. The couple wants to have more kids and are considering adoption for their fourth child.
“We could wait until all of our kids are grown and gone and then adopt, but I also think it’s kind of cool to have an adopted child growing up with the other kids,” Ben told Us Weekly on Wednesday.
“We’re just in a stage of, like, meeting with people who have adopted and getting advice, hearing their stories and seeing what that might look like for us.”
Jessa confirmed that she still gets “baby fever.” Although the couple is considering adoption, she doesn’t close the doors of a possible pregnancy.
“We’re not sure if our next baby will be adopted or not, but that’s something that has weighed heavily on our hearts since before we were married,” Jessa said.
More kids but not 19 children
Jess Duggar and her husband admitted that they loved a “full house.” Although they want to add more to their brood, they are not aiming for 19 children like her parents Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar.
“I guess we’re kind of taking it one at a time and we’re thankful for each one,” Jessa said.
Jessa loved a big family because she grew up with a lot of siblings around her. According to the reality star, having many brothers and sisters guarantees that she always has her “best friends” around.
“If one sibling wasn’t getting along with you at that moment, you could find somebody else to play with,” she added.
Jana Duggar at odds with siblings
Jana Duggar is the eldest daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. She usually takes over a lot of household chores, including looking after her siblings.
Due to Jana’s being an authoritarian figure, her siblings reportedly harbored resentment toward her. However, one should take the report with a grain of salt. There is no evidence about Jana feuding with her siblings.
