“Thanks for the free trip, TLC!”

Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald have been enjoying an extended honeymoon since getting married on November 1. After tying the knot, the 19 Kids and Counting stars hustled away from their  friends and family to finally enjoy some alone time as husband and wife. While Jessa and Ben have not revealed where they are honeymooning, a sharp-eyed fan has exposed the location to be Paris, France!

Jessa was spotted by multiple people while she and Ben visited the Eiffel Tower, and were later photographed with fans in front of the Cathedral of Notre-Dame.

“We met @jessaseewald and @ben_seewald,” the fan captioned the photo of her and her friends with Jessa and Ben. “Such a cute and sweet couple! It was so crazy to pass them at the Eiffel Tower then see them again at Notre Dame! Happy Honeymoon to them!”

Jessa & Ben’s “love lock,” spotted by fans…

A Duggar family fan Instagram account posted a photo of Jessa and Ben’s “love lock,” which they left at the Pont de l’Archeveche. (It’s a tradition for lovers that visit the spot to have their names inscribed on a lock that is later clamped onto the bridge. The key to the lock is thrown away to symbolize unbreakable love.)

Some fans may feel bad for Jessa and Ben because their honeymoon may no longer be private; however, being that the couple reportedly brought a TLC camera crew with them to film the honeymoon for ’19 Kids and Counting’, we really shouldn’t feel all that bad at the loss of privacy.

The fact that Jessa and Ben allowed TLC to film their honeymoon for the show may be the reason they got such an elaborate honeymoon, compared to the close-to-home honeymoon her sister, Jill, took with her new husband Derick Dillard. Jill and Derick rented a honeymoon cottage on the beach in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. The couple did not have their honeymoon filmed, and instead enjoyed some long-overdue privacy, which, of course, resulted in Jill coming back from her honeymoon pregnant with the couple’s first child.

Jill and Derick only took a week-long honeymoon, while Ben and Jessa’s honeymoon has spanned several weeks.  Jessa and Ben (and the baby that she will inevitably be carrying) are due home before Thanksgiving, according to multiple reports.

  1. Not a criticism of this site, but all this talk about her being knocked up by the end of her honeymoon makes me really hope, for her sake, that she doesn’t have infertility issues. My whole family is very fertile, but I still had issues getting pregnant, so just because her mom and sister are fertile myrtles doesn’t mean she will be. The emotional turmoil of infertility is hard enough without the entire world staring at your uterus, waiting for a baby to pop out.

    Really, this goes for all the Duggar girls. Infertility affects 10% of the population, so chances are at least one of them will have trouble.

    1. It’s more the joke factor of how obsessed with babies and pregnancy some of these women are. Michelle’s youngest is four, but listening to her talk you’d think Josie was at least a teenager the way Michelle goes on and on about her “baby days being over”, and Anna despairing over every pregnancy test she took when she’d only been married a few months. (I don’t recall it being phrased as “What if I’m infertile?” But rather “Why aren’t I a mommy yet?”) It’s one completely reasonable and unfortunate thing to be upset over the potential prospect of never having children, but there’s something unhealthy about considering any moment not spent gestating or holding an infant to be a waste, particularly when one has other children, a husband, other family, friends, anything else at all going on.

  2. Well they get a expensive long honey moon. And jill and Derrick got to move into a small mansion. :). I really don’t know where I’m going with this comment, lol
