Jessa Duggar, Ben Seewald


Jessa Duggar and husband Ben Seewald are still in newlywed mode!

Four months after their wedding, the 22-year-old 19 Kids and Counting star shared on her Instagram page on Thursday, several romantic photos of the two, taken during a romantic stroll on a beach in Tybee Island, Georgia.

"Married life is awesome," Jessa told the South Carolina newspaper The Island Packet in an interview posted on Wednesday. "I'm loving getting to be married to my best friend and getting to spend each day together. I really couldn't imagine anything else I'd rather do."

One pic shows her and her hubby, 19, sharing a tender kiss at sunset.

"Me and you walking side-by-side through life! @ben_seewald #FootprintsInTheSand," Jessa wrote.

Best friends! ?? @ben_seewald

Jessa is also in town on business—she is set to made a personal appearance at the Southern Women's Show in the nearby city of Savannah to meet fans and talk about the TLC reality series and the 2014 book Growing Up Duggar: It's All About Relationships, which she co-authored with sisters Jill DuggarJinger Duggar and Jana Duggar.

The couple wed in Arkansas, where Jessa's famous and devout Christian family lives, in a church on Nov. 1. The two are shown planning their wedding during the current season of 19 Kids and Counting and footage of the ceremony is set to air later this year.

Jessa's parents do not allow their unmarried daughters to kiss guys and fans had speculated she and Seewald would lock lips for the first time at their wedding. After they exchanged vows, they surprised their guests, as well as her parents Michelle Duggar and Jim Bob Duggar, by opting to share their first kiss in private. Jessa's mom and dad kissed in front of the attendees in their place.

Days later, Jessa posted an Instagram photo showing her and her husband kissing. Michelle and Jim Bob countered with their own PDA pic. Days later, Jessa posted another one of her and Ben, and, not to be outdone, Jill and her husband Derick Dillard shared their own kiss pic.

Jessa and Ben have also shared other cute pics of themselves as married couple. In February, on Valentine's Day, he posted on Instagram a photo of himself kissing his wife on the cheek and two days later, a pic of the two in the snow in Arkansas, which shows a Duggar rarity—Jessa is wearing pants.

I love my amazing bride! Wonderful day together with my bestie! ?? @jessaseewald

Jill and her hubby are expecting their first child, who is due later this month. Her pregnancy, from the first days of conception, was documented on 19 Kids and Counting.

"In this season, you'll see the progression of Jill's pregnancy, and I think the finale is my wedding," Jessa told The Island Packet. "Then coming up soon after my wedding is our honeymoon. They actually filmed an hour-long special of us on our honeymoon. We went on a 10-day trip to France and Italy."

Jessa recently said that she and Seewald hope to adopt children, even if they have biological kids.

"We are open to having children biologically whenever God will give us children," Jessa told The Island Packet. "We're not doing anything to prevent that. But something that's been on my heart for years is adopting. That's something we're really praying and working towards. In the state of Arkansas, you have to be married for two years before you can adopt. But as soon as those two years are up, you can be sure we'll be looking. We really want to adopt a lot of kids."
