Jessa Duggar's three children meet her newborn daughter Fern in sweet video after emotional birth

JESSA Duggar shared a sweet video of her three children meeting her newborn daughter Fern Elliana.

The Couning On star, 29, gave birth to her fourth child with husband Ben Seewald on Monday.

And just hours after welcoming her baby into the world, Jessa was ready to introduce the tot to the rest of the family.

She shared a video on YouTube showing sons Spurgeon, five, Henry, four, and daughter Ivy, two, entering the hospital room with Ben.

Jessa beamed as she cradled Fern in her arms and slowly brought the newborn up to her children.

"Look! This is the baby that was in my tummy!" she said, holding Fern out as the kids sat around her on the hospital bed.


Spurgeon, Henry and Ivy then took it in turns to hold their new baby sister.

After everyone had left, Jessa gave some updates on how Fern was doing, as well as revealing how grateful she was to have had an epidural.

Holding a sleeping Fern in her arms, the TLC star told the camera: "[Fern] had no issues with nursing, just latched right on.

"She's been doing so good. Look at this little angel. Look at her. Baby girl, you are perfect. You are so beautiful."


Jessa moved on to discussing the birth, explaining: "Even though I didn't get my epidural till the very last hour before she was delivered, I feel like it was still so worth it.

"Not only did it help with my pushing phase, it took the pain out of it. What I was really excited about was not being able to feel the after-birth cramps.

"So the epidural definitely worked. Was so thankful."

Jessa revealed in a previous video that she endured 12 hours of painful contractions during the birth.

Her parents Jim Bob, 56, and Michelle, 54, were quick to visit and take photos with baby Fern, who is their 10th granddaughter.

Jessa and Ben revealed in February that they were expecting, after having a "heartbreaking" miscarriage in 2020.

The reality stars told ET in a statement: ”After the heartbreaking loss of a baby last year, we’re overjoyed to share that another little Seewald is on the way!

"The pregnancy is going smoothly, and both baby and Jessa are doing well. We are so grateful to God for the precious gift of a new life! 

“The kids are delighted, and we can hardly wait to welcome this little one into our arms this summer."

Jessa and Ben tied the knot in 2014, after meeting in church as teenagers.
