When the time came for Jessa and Ben Seewald to film the first message about their recently announced pregnancy, they decided to shake things up.

The newlyweds, who married in October, sipped on thematically appropriate pink and blue(berry) smoothies as 19 Kids and Counting star Jessa, 22, told her husband, "You know, pretty soon we'll be making another little smoothie."

As he lifted a baby bottle, 22-year-old Ben agreed, "Yep. Maybe more than one."

Considering his wife has two sets of twin siblings, the newest Duggar in-law is understandably keeping his options open: "Can't wait to find out if it's a boy or a girl. Maybe it's both."
