Jessa Seewald and her husband, Ben Seewald, are settling into the life of being parents of three.
On May 26, as Dearly previously reported, Jessa and Ben welcomed their third child into the world, their first daughter. The proud parents named their little girl, Ivy Jane Seewald.
Jessa said of her little girl’s birth:
Ivy Jane Seewald was welcomed into the world Sunday, May 26th. 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 pm.
Her due date was June 5th, and since both of our boys went five days past their due date, we thought we would go late again. We were so surprised when she came two weeks earlier than her brothers. We definitely weren’t expecting that! Ivy was born at home weighing 7lbs 14oz and 20 1/2 inches long. She feels so tiny compared to her siblings! Spurgeon was born at nearly 10lbs, and Henry close to 9lbs. We’re so grateful to God for this precious gift. She is already so loved. Her big brothers adore her!
Now the 27-year-old is sharing a handful of new photos of her five-day-old baby girl.
We are over the moon.
And her younger sister, Joy-Anna, who is currently pregnant with her second child, thinks Ivy looks exactly like her older brother Henry.

How is it that this darling baby boy turned 2 today? I cannot believe how fast the time has flown by. Henry is a sweet ray of sunshine in every day, with his joyful laughter and loving cuddles. . He loves his big brother so much, and the two are constantly playing together, laughing, wrestling, climbing on things, and digging in the dirt. Henry also enjoys wooden knob puzzles, and learning to ride his tricycle! . Henry is all about his snacks, especially unsalted almonds and raisins, peas and apples— and he also enjoys when he gets to walk around with a pocket full of pretzels. ? . Henry LOVES to read books, so I included a little video of him reading one of his favorites: Little Blue Truck! He received a sequel to this book as a birthday gift (Little Blue Truck Leads the Way), and we’ve already read it 5x! . We are so grateful to God for giving us this little guy. ?? We pray often that our boys will come to know Christ at a young age, and we desire with all our hearts that they will live lives that glorify God and point others to Him. .

Joy wrote in the comments:
Cannot get over how much she looks like Henry!
And while others agreed, many more think Ivy got her looks from her father:
Looks just like her daddy
Beauty. Looks just like her daddy
Looks like daddy!
Like Jessa and Joy, four more members of the Duggar family are set to give birth later this year.
