‘Counting On’: Jill Duggar Just Told Everyone She’s Not Pregnant Again On Her Instagram Story
Counting On is in full swing, and we’re loving hearing about what the Duggars are up to now. Currently, we know there are multiple members of the family who are pregnant, too — and fans are loving getting updates on Jessa Duggar’s baby girl, Ivy. While Jill Duggar and her husband, Derick Dillard, are no longer featured on the show, they still have a huge social media following. And fans are constantly speculating if they’re going to be the next Duggar couple to announce a pregnancy, too.
It seems Jill’s setting the record straight regarding a possible pregnancy, however. She just took to her Instagram Story to tell her followers that she’s not with child after all. Here’s what she posted.
Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard have said they want as many kids as possible
The Duggars are known for having plenty of kids, as we can’t forget that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have stated many times in the past that they don’t believe in birth control. And it’s assumed that their own children will follow right in their footsteps. As for Jill and Derick, they currently have two sons, Israel and Samuel. And since it’s been a few years since Jill’s last pregnancy many are wondering if she’ll be the next Duggar family member to announce she’s expecting.
We know the couple want a number of kids just like Jill’s parents, too. Back in 2014, Jill told ABC News, “Both of us want as many kids as God will give us and we’ve talked about adoption. My parents have kept popping them out so we’ll see how [our] fertility is!”
Jill sparked pregnancy rumors when she was ‘childproofing’ her home recently
Eagle-eyed fans have been keeping an eye on Jill’s Instagram for any clues that she might be expecting. When Jill and Derick recently moved into their home they had newly built for their family, fans assumed they were moving to have more room for more little ones. And even more recently, Jill posted about “childproofing” the locks on her cabinets at home, which also had many assuming she was pregnant.
“Oh wow! Y’all expecting baby #3? Great that you’re getting a head start on #babyproofing!” one fan commented on the Instagram post. Another wrote, “Are you expecting???”
We can’t forget that this post came shortly after Jill and Derick addressed some pregnancy questions on Instagram Live, too. “Jill’s not pregnant. We’re not gonna be pregnant this year,” Derick noted — but Jill gave Derick a look that indicated he could be wrong.
She just remarked on her Instagram Story about how she’s not pregnant
It looks like Jill is setting the record straight once again about whether or not she’s pregnant. She just took to her Instagram Story to share a photo of herself drinking a Duggar favorite, pickle juice. “Just sippin’ some pickle juice this morning lol,” she wrote. And she then added the hashtags, “#notpregnant, #justaduggarthings, and #picklesanytime.”
We know the Duggars have an obsession with pickles and pickle juice, so it makes sense that Jill would jump the gun on correcting fans who may have assumed she was pregnant. And at this point, we’re not even sure if Jill can get pregnant with another child. She went through two extremely difficult births that resulted in C-sections with her two sons, and fans have wildly speculated that doctors have warned Jill not to give birth to any more babies.
That doesn’t necessarily mean Jill and Derick won’t adopt, however. We know the couple has talked about that possibility in the past, and we’d love to see them grow their family after so much pregnancy talk. Either way, it seems Jill is setting her fans straight with the truth and drinking her pickle juice just because she loves it!
