Jessa Duggar Opens Up About Her Home Birth Experience With Baby Henry

While Jessa Duggar Seewald, 24, and her husband Ben Seewald, 21, are still getting used to juggling two little ones at home - after all, they only welcomed baby son Henry Wilberforce on February 6 - they've already got their sights set on expanding their fam even further. "Right now we have two kids and there's two of us, so it's man-to-man coverage", Ben added.

'We just need a little more space, ' Jessa said with a laugh.

Henry was born at 4:26 am, and as they didn't have much lead time to get to the Seewald's home, Jill and Michelle were apparently only present for the very end of Jessa's labor. 'We're always checking the market!'

Also in the issue they talked about having two kids. 'When we have more, we'll have to switch it up to a zone defense!'

They welcomes Henry Wilberforce on February 6.

In fact, in a new interview with People, Jessa says she was downright shocked by how quick and easy the delivery was. The young couple earlier told PEOPLE that their son is named after British preacher Charles Spurgeon, who became a well known preacher in England from 1834 to 1892.

They sat on a beige sofa as she held Henry and her spouse had Spurgeon on his lap.

"[Wilberforce is] a real hero of ours", Ben said in TLC video posted on their website, "He was someone who really walked with God ..." "We just thought it was cute, but also there was another great man of God named Matthew Henry who lived before Wilberforce and he wrote a lot of great commentaries", he added. "We're really happy for you guys and Israel is happy for another cousin". Moreover, they also said that mom and baby were both doing well and that they were thankful for the new blessing and latest addition to their growing family.

Jessa and Ben revealed the name yesterday after days of speculation from fans.

The couple explained in a video message that they chose their son's second name after William Wilberforce, a British politician from the 1700s who helped abolish the slave trade.
