It's a good thing Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald want lots of kids!

On Tuesday, the 19 Kids and Counting stars announced they are expecting their first child. Just a few hours after sharing their big baby news, though, the first-time parents-to-be released a video hinting that they might be expecting not just one child, but twins!

The TLC clip starts with Jessa, 22, and Ben, 19, making smoothies. "You know, pretty soon we'll be making another little smoothie," says the mom-to-be.

"Yeah," replies Ben, holding up a baby bottle. "Maybe more than one!"

This gets a giggle from Jessa. "You never know," she says, smiling.

But there's even more reason to think the couple could be expecting multiples. In the next portion of the clip, Jessa says to camera, "We are so excited to announce that we are expecting a baby!"

"We can't wait to find out if it's a boy or a girl," adds Ben.

"What do you think it is?" Jessa asks.

"It could be both," he answers, grinning. "You never know!"

This makes Jessa laugh, before she admits, "I kind of think it's a boy!"

It's a little too early to tell #BabySeewald's gender. "We're 12 weeks along," says Jessa, "and the pregnancy is going great. I'm feeling good, looking forward to the second trimester. I hear now the morning sickness and all that [goes away]. Things are going great!"

Glad to hear it! And regardless of whether Jessa and Ben are expecting a boy, a girl, or both, they still want to expand their brood. "Our hearts haven't changed on adoption," Jessa told People yesterday. "We are still making plans."

Earlier this year, she told the mag, "Even before we were married, we wanted to adopt."

"Kids are so important," added Ben. "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."
