SPRINGDALE, Ark., Feb. 18 (UPI) -- Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald plan to adopt several children.
The 22-year-old reality star and her husband detailed their desire to start a family in an interview for the March 2 issue of People. Duggar grew up with 18 siblings, and the newlyweds intend to have a large brood of their own.
"Kids are so important. We hope to adopt a lot of kids. If God blesses us with biological kids of our own, it's not going to quench our desire to adopt," Seewald told the magazine. "Even before we were married, we wanted to adopt," Jessa added.
Duggar and her family came to fame on TLC reality series 19 Kids & Counting, which airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET. The program follows Independent Baptists Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their 19 children, whose ages range from 5 to 26.
Duggar and Seewald have been together since 2013, and married in November 2014. The reality star's older sister, Jill Duggar, wed several months prior in June 2014, and is expecting her first child with husband Derick Dillard.
