Jessa Duggar Seewald is pregnant! She's expecting her first child with new hubby Ben Seewald—and the baby is due on the couple's first wedding anniversary, November 1!

The couple confirmed the news, telling People, "We're so excited!"

Jessa, who is the third daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and a co-star on 19 Kids and Counting, is now entering her second trimester. (That's a traditional time for a pregnant woman to announce, after many of the first-trimester uncertainties and risks have passed. However, sister Jill and husband Derick Dillard announced their big news even earlier!)

Jessa says that by now she's "feeling pretty good." However, that wasn't always the case. "The morning sickness was different every day," she told People. "It's getting better, but I'm still hanging on to the heartburn." She added that she doesn't currently have any major food cravings for now.

The latest big announcement suggests there will be just half a year or so in between the new baby and cousin Israel. What a fun—if not very surprising!—bit of news for the ever-growing Duggar family.
