Jessa Duggar Seewald goes into labor with Baby No. 3 while getting ready for Church

“Counting On” star Jessa (Duggar) Seewald says she unexpectedly went into labor while getting ready for church last weekend.

In a series of pictures on social media and on the blog of her family, Seewald welcomed her third child, Ivy Jane.

“Ivy Jane Seewald was welcomed into the world Sunday, May 26. We were getting ready for church when my water broke, and we were thinking, ‘Well, I guess we have a change of plans! After three-and-a-half hours of labor, Ivy was born at 5:57 p.m.,” the happy mom shared on her blog.

Seewald has two older kids named Spurgeon Elliot and Henry Wilberforce, along with her husband, Ben. Unlike her newborn baby girl, her other boys went way past their due dates, so Ivy Jane was totally unexpected.

“Her due date was June 5, and since both of our boys went five days past their due date, we thought we would go late again,” Seewald explained. “We were so surprised when she came two weeks earlier than her brothers. We definitely weren’t expecting that!”

The Christian reality television star finished the blog post in praise.

“We’re so grateful to God for this precious gift. She is already so loved,” Seewald added.

In a picture with her husband and new baby shared on Instagram, Seewald captioned: “We are over the moon. #BabySeewald3 Ivy Jane Seewald.”
