Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald Reveal Baby’s Name

Recently, The Dirty reported that Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald gave birth to a new baby boy. 

Today, in a TLC web video, the couple announced the baby’s name, which is Henry Wilberforce Seewald.

Here is some of the statement that the couple shared; 

“Wilberforce was a British politician in the 1700’s and he was very instrumental in abolishing the slave trade in the British empire as well as doing a lot of other great things. He’s a real hero of ours. Someone that really walked with God. His closeness with Christ and his joy that he had with the lord really fueled his life and all the the did and that’s why he was so relentless even after facing defeat so many times. He persevered and he lived to see the day when the slave trade was made illegal throughout the British empire. That was something that was really inspiration to us. 

Henry- Jessa really liked the name Henry and we thought it was cute. Also, there was another great man of God named Matthew Henry who lived before Wilberforce and he wrote a lot of great commentaries. He also has a commentary series on the whole Bible.”

We can’t say it surprises us with the conservative Duggars that religion played a big part in their deciding of their baby’s name.
