— -- Jessa Seewald has given birth.

The "19 Kids and Counting" star and husband Ben Seewald have welcomed to the world a baby boy, according to a Facebook post on their family's page on Thursday.

Jessa, 23, and Ben, 20, began their courtship in September 2013, and announced their engagement about a year later. That November, they were married, and this past April, they announced that she was pregnant.

"We're expecting!" she said. "We are so excited. The due date is November first, our wedding anniversary."

Though they just became parents, the two may be expanding their family again at some point soon. Last year Jessa told ABC News that she'd be open to having 19 children just like her parents.

"Whatever God's plan is, we’d be good with that!" she said. "It's probably not possible for me to have 19 kids naturally, but we might adopt and get up to that number."
