Jessa Seewald looks up to her parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar as great parent role models. Now that she and husband Ben are starting a family of their own, she will be emulating their example in hopes of raising a good and God-fearing child.
Speaking during the Southern Women's Show in Orlando last Saturday, Jessa praised her mother as an "amazing woman," according to Entertainment Tonight.
"She's so patient, so kind and loving and caring with all the kids. So, I really look to her as my role model, my example," she said.
However, there are some things about parenthood that Ben and Jessa would like to do their own way. When asked by a fan whether they are going to name all of their children with a single letter, just like Jim Bob and Michelle did to all of their kids, Ben answered that they probably wouldn't.
"We thought to ourselves, if we do that, we'll kind of limit our name selection," Ben answered. "We thought maybe we'll keep our options open."
The young couple is eager to start a huge family of their own, and in order to achieve this, they will be opening their doors for adopted children. "We'd love to adopt. We're looking into that and trying to see what the process is, what the requirements are," Jessa said.
Jessa's elder sister Jill has already left the family home in Arkansas to start a new ministry in El Salvador, Central America, with her husband Derick Dillard and son Israel David.
Jessa said that she and Ben may follow suit if his job requires it. "If Ben's seminary that he's looking into requires us to move, then we might eventually move," she said.
