The Duggar family has already delivered baby news in 2018, with Jinger Duggar Vuolo announcing last week that she and her husband Jeremy Vuolo are expecting their first child. But, that’s not enough for Counting On fans, who expect a pregnancy announcement from the family pretty much every week. It makes sense, considering how much the Duggar’s procreates, and now the speculation is that Jessa Duggar Seewald is expecting baby number three.
According to The Hollywood Gossip, the speculation is based entirely on a recent photo that featured a few of the married Duggars sending Jinger a message of congratulations. In the pic, Jessa’s husband, Ben Seewald, has his hand on his wife’s belly.
After the Duggars posted the pic, fans on baby bump watch immediately started to claim that Jessa looks pregnant.
“Jessa looks pregnant, and her husband is touching her belly,” one follower wrote. While another commented, “So when will Jessa be making her announcement too?”
The Seewald’s have spoken publicly about expanding their family, but they seem to be leaning towards adopting baby number three. In a recent interview, Jessa said that adopting is “very much in our hearts.”
She did say that the couple would wait a while since they just had baby number two, but those comments won’t end pregnancy speculation anytime soon.
Just your average Onyx ☕️ and Thai food "date night"– you know, with ???? tagging along… and the shocking discovery of a ? when you pull down your sun visor. ??? LOVE YOU, BABE. @ben_seewald ?❤ Swipe left for more pics and videos. . . (P.S. I totally jumped to the back of the car and started shouting "Black widow!" And yes, he did relocate and dispose of the ?.
The Duggar family already has three babies on the way in 2018. In addition to Jinger, Joy-Anna Duggar Forsyth and Kendra Duggar are also expecting. While Jinger waited over a year to get pregnant, both Joy-Anna and Kendra got pregnant just days after walking down the aisle.
As for the Seewald’s, Cafe Mom is reporting that Ben might be taking Jessa away from her religion, which is something her dad, Jim Bob, couldn’t have seen coming when he agreed to let him court his daughter.
Now that the couple is married and has two children, it turns out Ben’s version of Christianity is different than the Duggar patriarch. Ben believes in Calvinism, which is based on predestination – the idea that God plans everything. Jim Bob, on the other hand, is a fundamentalist that believes in free will.
An insider claims that none of the men that have married into the Duggar family have religious beliefs that completely line up with Jim Bob and Michelle, but it hasn’t caused any major rifts in the family yet.
Overall, Ben is close to his in-laws, and if something comes up that they disagree on they work it out quickly or agree to disagree.
But, there could be a feud in the making, since Ben voiced his support for the Black Lives Matter movement and refused to adopt the Duggar worldview that condemns gays to hell. Which for them means that Ben isn’t only defying the Baptist church teachings, but the very will of God.
Jessa Duggar Seewald has not commented on the rumored feud between her husband and father.
Counting On is set to premiere new episodes in February.
