Baby Spurgeon is about to be a big brother!

"We are overjoyed to announce that Spurgeon has a new title in life as 'big brother!' " Jessa (Duggar) and Ben Seewald said in a statement to PEOPLE. "We are so thankful that God is adding to our family."

While the couple have been dreaming of adopting since even before they were married, we have no doubt they're thrilled about their newest addition, who will arrive in February.

"2017 is shaping up to be a wonderful year already, and we know Spurgeon will do a great job in his new role. Having Spurgeon has been such a wonderful blessing, and we cannot wait to see the face of this sweet new baby (or babies!)," they added.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
