While Jessa Duggar Seewald is still expecting her first child, she’s getting some hands-on mom practice with her adorable newest niece.
The former 19 Kids and Counting star posted a cute snap of herself holding 3-week-old Meredith Grace Duggar to her Twitter account Tuesday.
“Loving on my little niece,” she captioned the photo of the sweet newborn dressed in a ruffled, floral print onesie and a pink headband adorned with a flower.

Jessa’s brother, Josh Duggar, and his wife, Anna, announced the birth of Meredith, their fourth child, on their social media July 19. She’s their second daughter and joins daughter Mackynzie, 5, and sons Michael, 4, and Marcus, 2.
Her birth came in the wake of months of scandal after Josh confirmed sexual abuse allegations from a decade ago. Among those he admitted to abusing were several of his sisters, including Jessa. The family’s hit TLC reality show was taken off the air and eventually canceled.
TLC plans to air a documentary about sexual abuse, in which 22-year-old Jessa and her 24-year-old sister, Jill, another victim, will appear.
Meanwhile, Jessa is close to the end of her second trimester of her pregnancy. She and her husband, Ben, 20, have been extremely vocal about their excitement about their first child, sharing updates on their social media accounts along the way. Most recently, Jessa posted a snap of her ever-growing baby bump at just over 25 to weeks to Instagram, captioning the shot, “Just a little over 14 weeks to go! Counting down the days with [Ben Seewald].”
