Jill Duggar might be pregnant with her third baby with husband Derick Dillard. The Counting On star just went on a shopping trip with her cousin, Amy Duggar, and fans suspect that she was hiding a baby bump under her baggy clothes.
Jill posted photos of the shopping excursion, which happened at Amy’s boutique, on Instagram, offering her followers a look at some of the items she purchased. This is where things get interesting. As fans might recall, Jessa Duggar also took a trip to Amy’s boutique right before she announced her latest pregnancy, leaving fans to wonder if Jill is following her sister’s example.
Jill and Jessa shared pregnancies the last time they had children, so it would not be that big of a surprise if they did it again. According to OK Magazine, Jessa announced her latest pregnancy last month and fans were quick to speculate that Jill is about to release a statement of her own.
“Are you hiding a baby bump,” one fan questioned Jill, while another added, “Baby on the way???”
Jill and her husband already share two children, Israel and Samuel. The couple has not had a child in the past two years, which is a fairly long time for a member of the Duggar family. After all, we are talking about the kids of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, who made a name for themselves after giving birth to 19 children.
That said, there might be a good reason why Jill has not had a third child. Her first two pregnancies were fraught with complications. The Counting On star planned to have the babies at home with the help of a midwife, but ended up going to the hospital after prolonged labors. She also was forced to undergo two c-sections, which could be why she has been hesitant to have another.
Jill Duggar has not commented on the pregnancy rumors. The new season of Counting On airs Monday nights on TLC.
