UPDATE: Jessa Duggar Seewald and Ben Seewald shared a video message, formally announcing Jessa's pregnancy to the world. "Can't wait to find out if it's a boy or a girl," Ben said. "It could be both, who knows?" The future mom has a hunch it's a boy and added, "Well, we're twelve weeks along so far and the pregnancy's going great, I'm feeling good, looking forward to the second trimester, I hear now the morning sickness and all that....things are going great."

EARLIER: Just a few weeks after her sister Jill Duggar Dillard gave birth to Israel David Dillard, Jessa Duggar Seewald, 22, announced she's pregnant with her first child with husband Ben Seewald, 19. "We're so excited," she told People in an exclusive statement. "The due date is November first, our wedding anniversary," Ben told the magazine. "We are looking forward to being parents."

The couple gained fame on TLC's "19 Kids And Counting," and according to People, Tuesday's episode will feature a message about the pregnancy. Their wedding was broadcast in a two-hour special, which aired earlier this year, and under their family guidelines, the couple waited to kiss until after they were married. (That first kiss, however, happened off-camera in private.)

Jessa and Ben have spoken about wanting to adopt children, in addition to having biological children, and told People that they still plan to do so. "Our hearts haven't changed on adoption," Jessa said. "We are still making plans."
