SPRINGDALE , Ark., Nov. 14 (UPI) -- Jill Duggar Dillard hasn't been able to meet her new nephew Spurgeon yet, so she penned a warm letter of congratulations to his mother, her sister Jessa Duggar Seewald.
"Derick, Israel and I are so excited for you and Benji! I can't believe you have a little one now! It was such a joy to get to be apart of the birth from Central America, thank you. You were a champ! I felt those contractions with you," Dillard said in a post on her website.
"I'm so excited to both be on this motherhood journey together! I pray our boys will love Jesus with their heart, soul, mind and strength and love others more than themselves! We will have to let them FaceTime frequently while we are down here. It will be so fun to see them experiencing things and going thru similar stages within a few months of each other. I'm sure since they were about the same size at birth they'll be sharing clothes too. We love and miss y'all! You'll have to come for a visit so we can meet our little adorable nephew/cousin!"
Jessa and her husband Ben -- who live in Arkansas -- welcomed their first child Nov. 5. Jill and her spouse Derick are humanitarian workers in Central America.
The family is known for their long-running, recently canceled docu-series 19 Kids and Counting.
