Jessa (Duggar) and Ben Seewald will have another kid to count

LOS ANGELES — Jessa and Ben Seewald will have another kid to count.

The former co-star of TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" and her husband announced Tuesday they are expecting a second child.

Jessa (Duggar) Seewald gave birth to her first son, Spurgeon, in November.

The couple says in a statement they "cannot wait to see the face of this sweet new baby (or babies!)"

Seewald was one of "19 Kids and Counting" on the TLC reality show that chronicled the personal life of Arkansas parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. It was pulled from the network last year over revelations that Josh, oldest of the Duggar siblings, had molested four of his sisters and a baby sitter.

Jessa and Ben currently appear in TLC's "Counting On." The second season premieres Tuesday.
