Speculation is rampant that former Counting On star Jill Duggar is pregnant with her third child, and it’s all because of her most recent Instagram post. In the pic, Duggar is holding her youngest son, Samuel, and she captioned it with, “Love my babies.”
But fans couldn’t help but notice a possible baby bump, and they weren’t shy about making comments and asking questions. Could the 26-year-old have another little one on the way just a few months after giving birth to baby number two?
Duggar has kept a much lower profile on social media lately, and it could have to do with the fact that her husband, Derick Dillard, lost his job on Counting On because of his homophobic Twitter rants, which means she will no longer appear on the popular reality show.
But, there could be a very different reason that she went almost a month without posting any pictures of herself, and some think it’s because Duggar is expecting again, and she just hasn’t made an official announcement yet.
Some fans think she even dropped a hint in the caption, by using the hashtag “#babies” even though she was only holding one child, implying that the other baby she was referring to was in her belly.
But one person wisely pointed out that Duggar wouldn’t have been able to win no matter what she wrote.
“If she said ‘baby’ you’d be complaining that she’s leaving her other child out. She loves her babies, but happened to take this pic with only one of them. Come on,” write the fan.
The young mom already has two sons – Israel, 2, and Samuel, seven months.
When it comes to the Duggars, there is always a possibility that another baby is on the way, and Jill said right before she got married back in 2014 that she and her husband wanted to have as many kids as God would give them.
Dillard started the pregnancy rumors a couple of weeks ago when he posted a photo of himself with Samuel, and fans noticed a bottle of prenatal vitamins in the background.
But the Garden of Life brand of vitamins says on its website that its product can be used after pregnancy to help with lactation. And, when it comes to her supposed bump, postpartum bodies do come in all shapes and sizes.
So, until Jill Duggar makes an official announcement, fans will just have to continue to look for clues in her social media posts, since watching her on Counting On is no longer an option.
But, we can watch the rest of the Duggar family on Season 7 of Counting On, Monday nights on TLC.
