When Jessa and Ben Seewald celebrate their first wedding anniversary this year, they just might have a third person at the party.

“We’re expecting!” Jessa, 22, tells PEOPLE. “We are so excited. The due date is November first, our wedding anniversary.” Adds Ben, 19, “We are looking forward to being parents.”

The third daughter born to Jim Bob, 49, and Michelle Duggar, 48, and her husband, the oldest of seven Seewald children, revealed their happy news as Jessa enters her second trimester. Tonight’s episode of their TLC hit show 19 Kids and Counting, airing at 9 p.m., will feature a special message from the couple for fans.

“I am feeling pretty good,” says Jessa. “The morning sickness was different every day. It’s getting better, but I’m still hanging on to the heartburn. And I don’t have any super-serious food cravings.”

Before church one Sunday morning, Jessa says she took a pregnancy test and brought it in to show Ben.

“I said, ‘Hey Ben, guess what? Yeah, you’re a dad.’ We couldn’t believe it,” Jessa says. “We are so excited. We have started talking baby names. It is one of those things that is so special, picking a name for a baby.”
