For Cailyn Cox, writing isn't just a hobby, it's her life. Passionate about Hollywood, she makes it her mission to find the most entertaining celebrity gossip for SheKnows readers. And when she's not enthralled in the celeb world, she's ...

Sorry, Duggar fans — you'll reportedly be kept in the dark about the sex of Jessa's baby

19 Kids and Counting fans love every little bit of information they can get about the Duggar family, but if this latest report is true, then Jessa and Ben Seewald won't be sharing as much about their pregnancy with the world as fans may have hoped.

The couple does not know the sex of their baby just yet — although Ben is pretty convinced that they are going to have twins — but they will reportedly be finding it out next month (and you might not be). But that doesn't mean that you won't be getting any news at all about the baby, because according to Radar Online, Jessa told a group of University of Arkansas sorority girls that she heard her baby's heartbeat for the first time this week.

"We heard the baby's heartbeat for the first time today!" she told the girls while filming at the Cross Church Compassion Center in Springdale, Arkansas, Radar Online reports.

"At first they couldn't hear the heartbeat, the baby wasn't turned the right way or something like that," Seewald added.

And unlike Jill and Derick Dillard's gender reveal with their baby boy, there's a good chance Jessa and Ben will be keeping their news a secret.

"We're actually thinking about keeping it a secret, like just Ben and I know, but we're not sure," Jessa reportedly said. As much as fans want to know every little detail about the lives of these two lovebirds, it might be really nice if they kept an aspect of their private life, well, private.

Tell us what you think: Will you be disappointed if Jessa and Ben don't do a gender reveal? Or is that something they should really keep private?
