Jessa Duggar Names Her Baby Boy -- You'll Never Guess What She Called Him

Jessa (Duggar) and Ben Seewald reveal second son's name
Ladies and gentlemen, the newest Seewald baby has a name! Jessa (Duggar) and Ben Seewald just announced their second son's name that's a pretty powerful choice with ties to Charles Spurgeon, a religious figure whose surname inspired the couple to name their 15-month-old son Spurgeon.

If you have been scratching your head as to what baby Seewald #2 would be called, who made his debut on February 6, the wait is now over. In a TLC video interview, Jessa and Ben revealed their 8 pound 11 ounce bundle of joy's name is Henry Wilberforce.

"William Wilberforce was a British politician in the 1700s," Ben explains in the TLC video. "He was very instrumental in abolishing he slave trade in the British Empire. He's a real hero of ours -- he's someone who walked with God, and his closeness with Christ and the joy he had in the Lord really fueled his life and all that he did."

What a powerful choice!

So where praytell does the name Henry come from? Aside from Jessa loving the title, Henry also has strong ties to Christianity.

"There was another great man of God named Matthew Henry who lived before Wilberforce, and he wrote a lot of great commentaries," Ben also reveals.

Speaking of commentaries, it seems Charles Spurgeon had great things to say about Matthew Henry that's kinda perfect considering Spurgeon and Henry will likely grow up to be great buddies.


And just when you think there aren't any more symbolic or foreshadowing moments, it seems Jessa and Ben possibly hinted at Henry's name with their fireplace mantle.

"We were joking that people are going to start looking at the books on our fireplace mantle, because we had a Spurgeon book up there before he was born," Jessa revealed in the TLC video. "We also have on the right side of our fireplace mantle a six-volume set of commentary of the Bible by Matthew Henry."

Ahhh. Talk about pulling a fast one! We'll know for next time.

We're so happy for this growing family -- and their newest addition, Henry Wilberforce.

Hi, My wife and I have been married for 15 years. For over five years I have been dealing with jealousy issues because of flirting and her having emotional type affairs with other men. I felt like my masculinity was in question and if I said the way she was acting bothered me, it seemed to make matters worse or I was accused of being controling. During this period I did state I wanted a divorce if the behavior was not going to end: texting men a night, leaving for the weekend without letting me know where she was going or not responding to messages. We do have a son and basically it's been him and I for the last year on the weekends. She disconnected completely from being a good wife and mother. In April she said she wanted a separation and I said no we need to get into marriage counseling. We did try that, but she was not very responsive and didn't give any effort. Afterward she was adamant about separation and divorce. I continued to say no and that we needed to save our family. She presented a separation agreement and I had to hire a lawyer. Because of the above behavior my lawyer suggested a private investigator. The investigator discovered my wife was having an affair with a close friend of the family who also is married with children. We know the extended families. I feel like I should tell this man's wife about what happened. This adultery has devastated me emotionally, I feel betrayed and I'm physically drained. I know my wife is passionate in terms of her sexuality, and I can't get the thought of them out of my head. It makes me question my own manhood, and I feel very inferior or that he must be a better lover or what ever. The problem is my wife pursued him. She would go to him and she lured him into this adultery. I felt this was coming for some time and could not stop it. She was not only lying to me but also to our son about what she was doing and where she was going. My family is important, my son loves her and as crazy as it sounds so do I. Can you respond with a course of action on how to proceed? I was still have a very huge place in my heart for her. so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my wife came to me and apologized for the wrongs she did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I, my son and my wife are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe.
