If pregnant Jessa Duggar Seewald gets her wish, she could soon be rocking a massive baby bump that’s even bigger than the one Jill Duggar Dillard showed off after going two weeks past baby Israel’s due date.
During a recent interview with People, Jessa Duggar revealed that she’s hoping that she’s pregnant with triplets. And no, she doesn’t want a three-for-one because she and Jill are engaged in a baby-making contest — she just wants her belly to be occupied by a trio of fetuses filling themselves up with all the food that she’s been gorging on during her 12-week pregnancy.
However, triplets may not be the only explanation for Jessa’s big appetite. According to the 19 Kids and Counting star, food actually helped her combat morning sickness.
“During the stages of morning sickness, keeping something in my stomach kept me from being sick. If I kept something in my stomach, I would be way less nauseous.”
Luckily, Jessa’s 19-year-old husband helped by making sure that she always had something to chow down during her worst bouts with nausea.
“Ben was so sweet – ‘How can I help you? What can I get you to snack on?’… He’s so sweet. Always waiting on me hand and foot.”
Jessa Duggar isn’t just relishing treating Ben Seewald like a servant — the 19 Kids and Counting star also seems to love teasing her fans with hints that she might be pregnant with more than one baby. According to E! News, “Benessa’s” birth announcement video contains a few very obvious hints that the couple is expecting multiples. In the video below, Ben jokes about making smoothies for “more than one” baby.
“We can’t wait to find out if it’s a boy or a girl,” Ben later says. “It could be both.”
Jessa’s mother, Michelle Duggar, gave birth to two sets of twins: John David and Jana, and Jedidiah and Jeremiah. Perhaps Jessa was trying to drop a hint that she inherited her mother’s fertility by sharing the photo below. As you can see, she and Ben are posing with the anti-gay Benham twins.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald also had a blast dropping subtle hints about their pregnancy before they broke their big baby news on Tuesday morning. The couple likely waited so long because they wanted their pregnancy announcement to serve as a promotion for their special honeymoon episode of 19 Kids and Counting, which aired later that night.
According to the Bump, women can find out whether they’re having multiples if they’re at least 10 weeks along, so Jessa likely knows whether she’s having triplets, twins, or just one child. However, she’s not far enough along to know the sex of her child (or children).
Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald claim that they’re still looking into adoption, but do you think that they’ll go through with their plans if Jessa gives birth to twins or triplets?
