Currently, there is one Duggar couple who has a baby on the way – Jessa Duggar and her husband, Ben Seewald, who recently announced they are expecting their third child. But, thanks to some interesting evidence online, Counting On fans are sure that Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell are preparing for baby number two.
According to In Touch Weekly, some eagle-eyed fans noticed Caldwell’s new Pinterest account, and one of her boards is titled “baby announcement.” That’s pretty good evidence that Caldwell has babies on the brain, but there is the chance that the page is a fake. However, the page does follow Caldwell’s mom – who just gave birth to her eighth child – so it is possible the page is very real.
The Pinterest page discovery has fans speculating that Caldwell is pregnant again less than one year after giving birth to her first child, a baby boy named Garrett, who arrived on June 8, 2018.
Of course, Caldwell could be planning for a future announcement – she is a Duggar after all – and she is just posting her favorite announcement options for when the time comes.
Not long after she gave birth to Garrett, the 20-year-old said that she would love to have a big family.
“We would love to have more kids if the Lord blesses us,” said Caldwell. “As many as He wants to give us, we’ll be happy to take them.”
Joe and Kendra finally joined Instagram earlier this year so they could show off their “little family.” When they started their joint account in February, Kendra said they were still trying to figure out how it works, but they look forward to keeping everyone updated about what is going on in their lives.
In an episode of Counting On that aired earlier this month, Kendra said that her mom Christina was struggling with her eighth pregnancy, and Kendra explained that her mom has had difficult pregnancies ever since she was in a car accident 20 years ago. Christina was 36 weeks pregnant with Kendra at the time, and the accident caused internal damage.

“My mom is 28 weeks along, and she has always struggled with each pregnancy after having me because she was in a car accident when she was 36 weeks along with me,” Kendra said. “It caused a lot of damage, and so, every other pregnancy since then, she has had problems with having contractions prematurely.”
39-year-old Christina and 20-year-old Kendra Caldwell were pregnant together, and Kendra gave birth first. She confided in her mom that she wasn’t ready to have another baby right away because she needed time to recover. But, she did love being pregnant at the same time as her mom because it brought them even closer together.
Counting On just aired their season finale, but new episodes should return to TLC later this year.
