Jessa Duggar Had Her Baby and We Can't Wait to Hear His Name

Jenn is perhaps best known as the author of the popular parenting blog Breed ‘Em and Weep (2005-2012). She’s written for many magazines, newspapers and websites, including Brain, Child Magazine, Literary Mama, and The Boston Globe. Jenn’...

The Seewalds (Ben and Jessa Duggar) had their baby, and we're dying to know how they follow up ‘Spurgeon’

Thank God the Duggars aren't British royalty. It would be getting really confusing to figure out the order of heirs in line for the throne and we're already losing patience here. Slow your roll, Duggars. You're procreating like your life depended on it. Oh. Wait.

Fine. We just have keep all the "J" names straight, really. So, without further ado: Jessa with "J" (Duggar) Seewald and husband Ben announced the arrival of their second child, second son. Their first son — whose name we really love seeing in print — is Spurgeon. So you can imagine we are waiting with bated breath for the release of Baby No. 2's name. We noticed that Spurgeon is also recorded in history as one of the least popular baby names in 1884, so assuming the Seewalds are looking at the same list (and yes, we know they're not, but it's fun to imagine), we have some predictions about this one. His name will be... wait for it... Commodore. No, Orange. Flem? The 1800s had so many terrible names! How can we choose?

The Duggar-Seewald clan released a statement (don't get all excited; you could have written it in your sleep): "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!”

No, it's sweet, it's sweet. Human life and all that. Yay! (*files nails, rummages in fridge*)

Details? Oh, OK. The newest Duggarling tumbled onto the scene at 4:26 a.m. (go ahead, we know you want to mark that on your calendar), weighing a Duggarload at a whopping 8 pounds, 11 ounces. We know how long he is too, but the next impregnated Duggar — Jill with "J," also expecting her second — is ready to blow, so we'll leave some room in your brain storage for that impending info.
