Personal Life

Jessa Duggar was married to husband Ben Seewald in November 2014. They started dating in 2013, got engaged in August 2014 and finally tied the knot in November that year. Her wedding dress caught a bit of a buzz because it was unique in certain aspects. Instead of the traditional white dress for the bride, Jessa chose a light blush wedding dress. It was a beautiful gown with its bodice full of Swarovski crystals and pearls. It had a long terrain at the back. This rather unique dress was welcomed by some people whereas some didn’t like the idea of a non-white wedding dress. According to Jessa, the reason she chose the light pink colored dress was that she wanted it be a little different. Also, her sister Jill was getting married quite close to her wedding, so she wanted her dress to be different from her sister’s white dress.

Almost one year later after her marriage, on November 5, 2015, she gave birth to a baby boy who was named Spurgeon Elliot Seewald. His name was inspired by the Christian missionary Jim Elliot and Baptist Preacher Charles Spurgeon. According to Jessa and Ben, their lives have greatly been influenced by these two people, so they named their son after them. Jessa and her husband are happily married and devoted to each other. The chances of divorce between them are very slim.
