With so many kids in the Duggar family, it can be hard for fans to keep up with who is getting married and who is pregnant. But, after all the weddings and pregnancies in the past couple of years, things are kind of quiet in Duggar world, with no one officially courting and only one daughter expecting a baby.
Joy-Anna is the only member of the family to announce a pregnancy, but so far it has been a controversial one. After marrying Austin Forsyth in late May, Joy-Anna announced just fourteen weeks later that she was pregnant. But, because of the size of her baby bump, some thought she was farther along than she claimed.
And, as Romper reports, this led to speculation that there was a shotgun wedding because Joy-Anna got pregnant, which would be a huge scandal in the uber-conservative Duggar family. She has also caused a stir because of her pro-life stances posted along with her baby bump photos.
The 20-year-old says that she is having a “honeymoon baby” and is due in February, which would be exactly nine months after she walked down the aisle.
As for who is next up in the Duggar family to announce baby news, rumors have surrounded both Joseph Duggar and his new bride, Kendra Caldwell, as well as Jinger Duggar and her husband, Jeremy Vuolo.
Joseph and Kendra just got married in September, but if they do things like the rest of the Duggar clan, baby news should be just around the corner. The couple also added fuel to the rumor fire when they posted a family picture a couple of weeks ago that featured Kendra completely hidden behind her mom. Fans were quick to speculate that this was their creative attempt to hide a new baby bump.
Jinger and Jeremy are the one couple to go against trend by being the first couple of the current Duggar generation to get through their first year of marriage without a pregnancy announcement. The couple married in November of 2016, and have said they would like to have a family someday, but they don’t seem to be in a hurry to get started. Instead, they are enjoying life as young newlyweds.
But fans are ready for a pregnancy announcement from the two, and every picture they post on social media leads to new rumors. According to The Hollywood Gossip, late last month, the young couple posted a pic of the two of them playfully enjoying lollipops. Jeremy added the caption, “Sugar and spice. Think about it.”
Fans immediately started asking if the couple was expecting a baby girl. But, one commenter immediately squashed the theory by explaining the sugar is referring to the candy and the spice was a reference to Jinger.
The Duggar family has not commented on any of the pregnancy rumors.
