What a novel! Jessa Duggar really, really loves her husband Ben Seewald. The pregnant 19 Kids and Counting star wrote a lengthy post about the dad-to-be via Instagram on Tuesday, May 19.

"Happy birthday to my best friend and favorite person in the whole wide world!!!" Duggar, 22, captioned a throwback selfie of the lovebirds. "Life with you is always so fun and exciting!"

Indeed, the couple announced last month that they are expecting their first child together. Seewald, 20, also just graduated from National Park Community College in Bentonville, Arkansas on Saturday, May 16.

"I love your passion for bringing help to the hurting, and sharing with the lost the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Every day you inspire me to be more committed to the Faith. There is no one else I'd rather run alongside in this journey of life!" Duggar continued. "You are so tender and compassionate, humble, loving and faithful. You always look out for my comfort and wellbeing before your own. You're not afraid to admit your mistakes and quickly make things right. You're a true gem."

Duggar and Seewald tied the knot in November 2014 before more than 1,000 guests. They had their first kiss behind closed doors, with Duggar hinting about their sex life (ahem, "past the side hugs") four months later.

"With each day that passes, I realize more and more just how blessed I am to have you as my man! There is no one else I would rather have as the daddy of my baby!" Duggar added in her Instagram post. "Sweetheart, you are my dream man. I could not have asked for anything more in a husband! I'm so happy that I get to share the rest of my life with you!!!"
