A recent photo shared by Jill Dillard’s husband, Derek, has the internet abuzz with rumors that the Jill & Jessa: Counting On star is pregnant — this time with twins! The reports that Jill might be expecting again have surfaced just as gossip that Anna Duggar is pregnant has quieted down. Meanwhile, in the most recent episode of Jill & Jessa: Counting On, Jessa Duggar hints at the possibility that she’s pregnant too.
An Instagram photo of Jill Dillard’s son, Israel, has fans squealing in anticipation that Dillard is expecting the couple’s second child. In the photo, the adorable Israel Dillard gazes at his own image in a mirror as he tries to unravel the mysteries of the looking glass.

But it’s Derek’s caption that has captured the imagination of Duggar fans. Dillard wrote to fans that “[t]his is how you entertain yourself when you don’t have any siblings yet… #mirrorbaby #twins?”
Although it’s likely Derek was just commenting on his precious son’s reflection, since the Duggar family is known for their large families, it’s possible Jill is pregnant again. Fans are waiting impatiently to find out whether Dillard is expecting.
“IS JILL PREGNANT AGAIN!? WHAT DO THEY MEAN BY YET AHHH IS JILL PREGNAT [sic],” one excited user queried on Instagram, revealing the enthusiasm of Duggar fans at a possible new baby.
The potential that Jill is pregnant has some fans seriously concerned, however. Jill and Derek Dillard are somewhere in Central America performing mission work in the midst of the Zika virus outbreaks. Some Jill & Jessa: Counting On viewers have voiced concerns about the health of the babies if Jill is pregnant.
Jill Dillard isn’t the first member of the Duggar family who has been the subject of pregnancy rumors, however. Ever since a photo of Anna surfaced, fans have speculated Duggar is expecting a new baby as well.

In the grainy photo, Anna and some of the other Duggar kids are enjoying a dinner together and appear to be having a good time. Anna gives the camera a thumbs up while the reality star wears a baggy shirt that some fans have speculated is hiding a baby bump.
Naturally, Anna and her husband, Josh Duggar, have not made a formal statement about whether Anna is pregnant or not. However, viewers of Jill & Jessa: Counting On know that Duggar visited her husband last December while he was in rehab, sparking rumors almost immediately that Anna was carrying baby number five. However, if Anna had gotten pregnant last December, she likely would be showing by now.
Anna was reflective about her marriage to Josh Duggar while he was in rehab. In the episode, Anna shares that Josh will soon be out of rehab, and she’s excited to see her husband. Revealing to her sisters-in-law that she “can definitely look back on the past few months and say it’s been a hard road,” Duggar added that “it’s been a good road, and I know there’s still a lot of work.”

Admitting that working on her marriage is “kind of is a long process,” Anna added that she and Josh will “just take it one day at a time and keep trusting God and do the next right thing.”
However, it was a statement by Jessa Duggar in the latest episode of Jill & Jessa: Counting On that has sparked new rumors of a potential addition to the Seewald family. While taking a girl’s vacation together, Jessa tells her siblings that she and Ben still plan to adopt, adding that “hopefully our next child we be adopted.”
Jessa then tells her sisters that “you never know. God could have something else in mind.”
