Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald may just have a future soccer star on their hands! "Baby Seewald is growing steadily and Mommy has been feeling some little, yet strong, kicks," first-time mom-to-be Duggar, 22, blogged during the 20th week of her pregnancy on June 17. "Can't wait to welcome this little blessing from God into the world."

Duggar and Seewald, who married in November 2014 and announced their pregnancy in April, know the gender of their baby but are keeping it a secret for the time being, the reality star blogged.

Duggar's pregnancy blog is one of only a handful of pregnancy updates she’s provided in the tumultuous weeks since news broke that her brother Josh Duggar molested Jessa, their sister, Jill, two other siblings, and the family babysitter, when he was 14. In her latest post, Duggar thanked fans for their tireless support of her and her family.

"We want to pause a moment and thank all of you who have been lifting us up in prayer. We are so grateful and blessed," said the 19 Kids and Counting star, who bravely opened up about her brother's abuse in a Fox News interview earlier this month.

"Our little family is, by God's grace, going to continue seeking to lovingly point people to Christ and encourage those who are down," Duggar, who included a Bible passage about finding strength amid strife, blogged. "God’s goodness and kindness to us even in difficult times is humbling and wonderful."
