Derick opened the video, congratulating Ben and Jessa, saying, "Well, congratulations Jessa and Ben on the birth of your second son, Henry Wilberforce".

"Well, congratulations Jessa and Ben on the birth of your second son, Henry Wilberforce".

The couple married in 2014.

"He's a real hero of ours".

As on 19 Kids and Counting, and Counting On, the Duggars are all Christians, although they follow a stricter, more fundamentalist version of the age-old faith.

"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", Ben said.

"When the baby was finally born and we got to hold him for the first time, I started crying and I think Ben had tears in his eyes", Jessa said.

They've picked a name!

The newest addition to the family is named after William Wilberforce, a politician, and philanthropist who was instrumental in putting an end to the slave trade. Opening up about her family plans with husband Ben Seewald, the reality star revealed that they definitely want more kids, and even more exciting - they're "very much" into adopting!

So they, of course, need more living area, the Counting On stars told People this week. Spurgeon is named for the British preacher Charles Spurgeon. While 19 Kids and Counting has been off the air for two years now, the show's follow-up, Counting On is still going strong, and follows the lives of the Duggar children as they navigate life inside and outside their large family.

The Duggar family don't believe in using contraception and have strict dating guidelines. But just how long will it be until Jessa and Ben add to their brood?
