Jessa Duggar might look up to mom Michelle Duggar — but she isn’t her mini-me!
On Saturday, the 19 Kids and Counting star and her husband Ben Seewald attended the Southern Woman’s Show in Orlando, FL and talked about the upcoming birth of their baby.
“I know it’s going to change our lives dramatically. It’s going to be huge. [Ben and I] were just talking logistics of travel. Right now, we packed all of our stuff in a little suitcase for this weekend trip, and I was like, man, when you have a baby! Our friends have been warning us, ‘You’re going to have car seats and strollers and a huge bag for all the baby stuff — diapers, and whatever, extra change of clothes in case something happens.'”
You can say that again!
The young, expecting couple certainly seem a tad intimidated by the fact their little one is due in a matter of weeks. But, luckily she feels she can handle it since the reality TV phenom has a role model in her mom:
“I think I have a great example in my mom. She’s such an amazing woman. She’s so patient, so kind and loving and caring with all the kids. So, I really look to her as my role model, my example.”
Aww! Well that’s sweet.
Despite only having nice things to say about the matriarch, it appears the Seewalds are planning on branching out a bit more than Momma Duggar did.
Specifically, when it comes to naming the bun in Jessa’s oven.
Rather than name their future children all with the same letter, Ben noted:
“We thought to ourselves, if we do that, we’ll kind of limit our name selection. We thought maybe we’ll keep our options open.”
Very fair. Though that’s not the only thing the twosome plan to do differently from the TLC parents. Both adoption and moving out of Arkansas were discussed at the event. Whoa!
As we previously reported, the 22-year-old has been pretty vocal in the past about wanting to adopt children in the future, rather than have their entire brood biologically as her mother did.
“We’d love to adopt. We’re looking into that and trying to see what the process is, what the requirements are.”
That’s AH-Mazing! But we have a feeling the pair are going to wait until they’ve settled in with their first born before rushing to add another kid to their nest.
In regards to moving, she revealed:
“If Ben’s seminary that he’s looking into requires us to move, then we might eventually move.”
This doesn’t exactly shock us since the starlet has been recently distancing herself from her scandalized family following her brother Josh Duggar‘s controversial molestation and Ashley Madison news leaked.
We’ll be counting down the days to Jessa’s due date. Stay tuned for any baby updates.
