Statement from the couple:
"We are overjoyed to announce that Spurgeon has a new title in life as "big brother"! We are so thankful that God is adding to our family. 2017 is shaping up to be a wonderful year already and we know Spurgeon will do a great job in his new role. Having Spurgeon has been such a wonderful blessing and we cannot wait to see the face of this sweet new baby (or babies!)." - Jessa & Ben
"COUNTING ON" RETURNS TO TLC WITH YOUNG LOVE AND NEW ADVENTURES
--Season Two Premieres Tuesday, August 23 at NEW TIME 8/7c--
COUNTING ON returns with new courtships, family reunions and fun adventures in the all-new 10 episode series premiering Tuesday, August 23 at 8/7c on TLC.
There's big news for the Duggar family: Jinger is courting! Throughout the season, viewers will watch Jinger and former professional soccer player Jeremy Vuolo as they experience all the exciting firsts of a new, budding courtship. From the official "blessing" and meeting the family to chaperoned dates and side hugs, Jinger and Jeremy get to know each other better to determine if another Duggar wedding is around the corner.
While Jinger is in courtship bliss, the other older Duggar siblings are ready to leave the lows of the past year behind them and look forward to new and exciting highs. Jill and Derick are returning to Arkansas after a year of balancing mission work and raising their 1 1/2 year-old son in Central America. It is an exciting and busy time for Ben and Jessa with a new baby and possible plans for adoption, while Ben simultaneously organizes a football camp with ex-NFL players to mentor kids. Joy, Jedidiah and Jeremiah are also reaching a milestone with high school graduation rapidly approaching. And, these three aren't the only ones growing up; could John David, Joseph and Josiah be seeking future-Mrs. Duggars? These siblings aren't kids anymore, and each new relationship, parenting challenge and exciting endeavor are a reminder of how much they've grown.
