During the past eight weeks, two new Duggars have entered the Counting On world. Joseph Duggar and his wife, Kendra Caldwell, welcomed their son Garrett, in June, and last week Jinger Duggar and her husband Jeremy Vuolo welcomed their daughter Felicity. But now that the baby boom has passed, Jessa Duggar has her own case of baby fever, and it looks we could get yet another Duggar sooner rather than later.
According to Us Weekly, Jessa admitted that she is ready to have another baby, and after having two boys (Spurgeon, 2, and Henry, 1), she would be “overjoyed” to have a little girl. The 25-year-old went to Texas to help Jinger with her new daughter, and she joked that even though she would like to have a little girl herself, it would definitely be a big change for her family.
“I would be overjoyed if we were to find out we were expecting again. It would be sweet to have a baby girl. We’d probably feel like we were having to start again from ground zero if we had a girl thrown in the mix,” Jessa explained.
Jinger and Jessa are very close, and it would make sense for her to have a baby girl as soon as possible so they can raise their daughters together. To show just how close they are, Jinger wrote in an Instagram post on Jessa’s 25th birthday that the two have made many memories together, and she will always have a faithful companion. She added that God has been kind for giving her a sister like Jessa.
The only possible downside to Jessa having a little girl of her own is that she would be giving up the #boymom life. She said that she is getting “this boy thing down pat.” So, until she and her husband, Ben Seewald, figure out the next step for their family, fans should probably keep their pregnancy speculation to a minimum.
Back in April, rumors swirled that Jessa was expecting baby number three, and she took to Instagram to deliver a sarcastic message about her supposed baby bump. She wrote that she was hiding a “shrinking bump” instead of a growing one and made it clear that she would announce a pregnancy when she was ready.

Jessa Duggar also helped Jinger decorate baby Felicity’s nursery with a Southwest theme, so she has definitely gone above and beyond to help her sister with her new baby.
In addition to the two new little ones in the Duggar family, Josiah Duggar married Lauren Swanson on June 30th, and John David Duggar just announced his engagement to Abbie Grace Burnett. It’s a busy time for the large and constantly-growing reality TV family. And, fans will just have to stay tuned to find out if it will be growing even more in the near future.
Season eight of Counting On premieres Monday, July 30th on TLC.
