The unfolding Duggar news is that Jessa is now homebound due to her pregnancy, canceling all appearances and travel, and is surrounded by husband Ben Seewald’s family. At the last minute, Jessa and Ben canceled their flight to Jacksonville, Florida, where they were scheduled to appear on Saturday at the Southern Women Show. News of the cancelation was posted on the event’s website just two days ago, noting that Jessa’s siblings, Jinger and Josiah, would take her place on stage.

At 12 p.m. on Saturday, just before Jinger and Josiah took center stage at the Prime Osborn Convention Center, a short video from Jessa was screened for the audience.
