Counting On star Jessa Duggar is already the mom of two boys, Spurgeon, 2, and Henry, 13 months, but almost immediately after her youngest arrived last year, rumors started to swirl that she was expecting baby number three. Now, a source close to the 25-year-old is claiming that the fans are right, and Jessa is four months pregnant. Could another Duggar baby be on its way in 2018?
Kendra Duggar and Jinger Vuolo have already announced that they are expecting babies this summer – Kendra in June and Vuolo in July – and In Touch Weekly is reporting that Jessa won’t be far behind them.
“Jessa is definitely pregnant and will be making an announcement in April,” reveals an insider.
If Jessa is already four months along, that would mean she will welcome her third baby just a month after her sister Jinger delivers baby number one.
Best friends forever. ? I thank God for giving me such a caring, compassionate, patient, thoughtful, understanding, selfless, loving, godly husband. I’m reminded daily just how blessed I am to be married to you. I don’t know another man who is as quick to ask forgiveness when he messes up as you are. I don’t know another dad who is more involved in the diapers, cuddles, wrestling matches and training moments as you are. I don’t know another man who is as sensitive to the emotions and feelings of others as you are. You’re a priceless treasure. God blessed me beyond in giving me you.
Normally, Duggars are quick to announce a pregnancy, but Jessa has decided to wait because she didn’t want to take away from the news that her brother Josiah is engaged to Lauren Swanson.
Even though she’s got a third one on the way, Jessa is still enjoying moments with her two little ones. On the most recent episode of Counting On, the reality star gave Spurgeon his first haircut at the age of 18 months, but she expressed sadness about snipping his curls.
Her husband, Ben Seewald, said that Spurgeon’s first haircut was a milestone, but it was more significant for his wife than it was for him.
The couple had to take a team approach to the cut, with Seewald holding him and distracting him with a cartoon while Jessa trimmed the locks.
Jessa ended up taking before and after pictures of the cut, and she kept one ringlet for memory’s sake.
As the reality star has started her own family and become more independent, she has started to become a little wild by Duggar standards when it comes to her fashion choices.
Not long ago Jessa rocked a pair of tight leggings, and in a recent episode of Counting On, she wore a short skirt that showed off her knees.
Ever since saying “I do,” Jessa, Jinger, and Jill have all loosened up on their family’s dress code and started wearing pants and heels. In the past, their mom Michelle has explained that she and her daughters wear long skirts to not “defraud” the men around them.
By her definition, defrauding is “stirring up desires that cannot be righteously fulfilled,” so women need to keep covered from the neck to the knee.
However, it seems her daughters no longer agree with that theory.
