Jessa Duggar hasn’t confirmed that she’s pregnant yet, but a recent photo of the 19 Kids and Counting star has her fans wondering if she’ll be the next Duggar to make a very special announcement.
During this week’s episode of 19 Kids and Counting, it was announced that 18-year-old Josiah Duggar is courting 17-year-old Marjorie Jackson. Fans also learned that the Duggar family will make another big announcement next week, and there’s already speculation that Jessa Duggar has pregnancy news to share.
Country singer Mark Wills discovered just how obsessive 19 Kids and Counting fans can be after he posted the photo below on his Facebook page. Wills revealed that he ran into Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee.
“Last night at the @opry, I ran into the newlyweds from TLC 19 Kids and Counting. A very sweet young couple,” Wills captioned the photo above.
It wasn’t long before his Facebook page was flooded with comments from 19 Kids and Counting fans eagerly analyzing Jessa Duggar’s belly for any sign of a baby bump.
“She has a baby bump starting. I think she is pregnant,” one fan wrote. “Can’t wait to hear the announcement.”
“She had a perfectly flat stomach. I see a small pouch and her boobs look wider,” another commented. “They only grow towards your armpits when you are pregnant.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, some fans think that one of Ben Seewald’s recent photos is also evidence that Jessa Duggar is pregnant. There’s speculation that Ben is using his cowboy hat to cover up Jessa’s baby bump in the Instagram snapshot below.
Next Tuesday would be the perfect time for Jessa Duggar to announce that she’s pregnant — the upcoming episode of 19 Kids and Counting is going to focus on her European honeymoon. However, it’s obvious that Jessa didn’t get knocked up with a “honeymoon baby” like her sister, Jill, did.
Jessa and Ben Seewald have been feeling plenty of pregnancy pressure from their fans and Jessa’s family ever since they tied the knot, and there’s one person who would be happier than most about some Baby Seewee news. In a recent Facebook post, Jim Bob Duggar joked that he wants to have 200 grandkids.
However, it’s entirely possible that Jessa Duggar is trying to remain child-free a bit longer so that she can enjoy her freedom. She was a sister-mom to her younger siblings for a very long time, and she and Ben didn’t even get to go on any chaperone-free dates before they got married. Who could blame the young couple for wanting a few quiet years alone?
The photos above also shouldn’t be seen as definitive proof that Jessa is pregnant. The positioning of Ben’s hat could be coincidental, and Jessa’s tiny belly might simply be the result of a little weight gain. Ben has admitted that his wife struggles with her weight, and it seems to bother her whenever people speculate that her slightly larger tummy is a baby bump.
Next week’s big 19 Kids and Counting announcement may have nothing to do with a pregnancy at all. Perhaps Joseph Duggar really is courting Tori Bates, or maybe Josh Duggar will reveal that he’s leaving Washington, D.C., to move back home. According to Radar Online, Josh and Anna Duggar recently purchased a house in Siloam Springs, Arkansas.
Do you think Jessa Duggar will announce that she’s pregnant next Tuesday on 19 Kids and Counting?
