This fell under our radar because we covered her first pregnancy but Counting On star Jessa Duggar welcomed her second child this week, according to PEOPLE.

She and husband Ben Seewald also starred in a long-running TLC channel television reality show about Jessa and her family,  19 Kids and Counting.

“We are so happy to announce the arrival of our sweet second son,” the couple announced about the birth in a statement. “He was born at 4:26 a.m. this morning, weighing 8 lbs. and 11 oz. and measuring 21 3/4 in. long. Mom and baby are both doing well. We are so thankful to God for this precious new gift of life and are excited to be a family of four! Thanks to everyone for your prayers and well wishes!”

Apparently, as like with her first pregnancy, Duggar has been keeping her followers and fans on Instagram up on her pregnancy progression, just last week, she posted a photo of 39 week belly from her previous pregnancy and this one.

Chasing The Duggars: The Bates from ‘Bringing up Bates’ are expecting the 20th child in the family

So the other TV family with 19 kids also has a family member expecting a baby. 
This January 1, The Bates family, consisting of dad Gil, mom Kelly Jo and their 19 children, ages 2 to 25, got their own reality TV show on UPTV after appearing on several episodes of TLC‘s 19 and Counting.


The show, Bringing Up Bates, premiered this January 1 and featured a storyline where the oldest daughter Erin, and her husband, Chad Paine, discovered that they miscarried their first child. However, since that airing, the couple has gong on to conceive again.
Erin shared a sonogram of her baby on her Instagram account this weekend.  She wrote:

I’m so glad and relieved that last night’s episode has finally aired! Chad and I have been waiting to share our big news with the rest of the world for quite some time now. The news is true! Chad and I are having a baby! To say that we are thrilled would be such an understatement. 😉 We can hardly contain our excitement as we prepare to be parents. As many of you know, starting a family.

As we reported before, over at The Duggars household, their eldest daughter Jill announced last October that she and her husband Derrick Dillard are expecting their first child. This will be the 4th of 5 grandchildren in the family because Josh Duggar and his wife Anna have 3 kids and announced this past December that they are expecting their fourth child. Jessa Duggar just got engaged to her beau Ben Seewald last August.  
It looks in the production of children competition, the Duggars are pulling ahead! ha!
