Anna Duggar’s due date was July 10, so many 19 Kids and Counting stars have been wondering whether Josh Duggar’s wife has given birth. Luckily, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar recently provided a pregnancy update on their family Facebook page.
On July 12, the Duggars shared a photo of Anna Duggar and her sister-in-law, Jessa Duggar, showing off their baby bumps. Obviously, Anna and Josh’s fourth baby hasn’t arrived yet, but the Duggars can’t wait to greet their granddaughter (Josh and Anna have already revealed that they’re having a girl).
“Well, sweet Anna is now past her due date!” the Duggars captioned the photo above. “First time she has ever gone ‘late’ instead of early! Here she is with our Jessa. Be praying for these girls. Pretty soon we will get to kiss the sweet face of another Duggar grandbaby!!!”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Jessa Duggar incorrectly predicted that Anna would continue her pregnancy pattern by giving birth before her due date. Anna’s fourth child may also break another pattern — the little girl could be Anna’s first baby that isn’t born in front of the TLC cameras.
A few weeks ago, Josh Duggar admitted that he sexually molested Jessa Duggar, Jill Duggar, two unnamed sisters, and a non-relative babysitter. TLC yanked all 19 Kids and Counting reruns from its schedule after Josh made his shocking confession, and the network hasn’t announced whether it plans on bringing the show back. It’s possible that TLC execs are still debating on whether they want to save or sink the Duggar family’s show, and perhaps the network isn’t spending any money on filming the Duggars while the future of 19 Kids and Counting remains in limbo.
Anna Duggar and Josh Duggar’s growing brood currently includes 5-year-old Mackynzie, 4-year-old Michael, and 2-year-old Marcus. According to the Daily Mail, Anna gave birth to two of her children while she was living in the Arkansas home currently occupied by Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald — Mackynzie was born in the master bedroom, and poor Michael was born on the toilet. Anna opted for a water birth with Marcus, and he came swimming out at her midwife’s house.
Anna told PEOPLE that she was hoping to give birth at her house in Washington, D.C., but her plans abruptly changed after Josh lost his job with the Family Research Council. He and Anna moved back to Arkansas, and it seems highly likely that Anna will give birth at the home of Josh’s parents or one of his relatives. Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard’s house is empty now that they’ve left on their mission trip, so it would be a nice, quiet place to give birth.
Will you be sad if you don’t get to see Anna Duggar’s latest birth on a future episode of 19 Kids and Counting? And which “M” name do you think Josh and Anna will choose for their daughter?
