‘Counting On’: Jinger Says There Is 1 Question In the Duggar Family That Nobody Takes Offensively
The Duggar family is unlike most American families. Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar raised their kids very traditionally, and the family had plenty of rules growing up. But the Duggars also have one of the largest families in the country; Michelle and Jim Bob have 19 kids, plus they legally adopted Michelle’s niece’s son, Tyler, giving them 20 kids total.
Though there were many things the Duggars were not allowed to say and do growing up, Jinger Duggar recently revealed that there is one question nobody in the family ever takes offensively.
Michelle and Jim Bob do not believe in birth control
When Michelle and Jim Bob were first married, they were using birth control because they weren’t ready to start a family. However, the couple ended up getting pregnant while taking the pill, but Michelle’s first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. After that incident, the two decided that God did not want them to prevent babies. Instead, they adopted the idea that God would send them as many children as they were meant to have. With that, Michelle and Jim Bob ended up with 19 biological children and one adopted child.
Many of the kids have already started having families of their own
Now that Michelle and Jim Bob’s kids are getting older, many of them have already married and had children of their own. The couple’s oldest son, Josh Duggar, just welcomed his sixth child with his wife, Anna. Jessa Duggar recently welcomed her third child in five years, and Joe and Kendra Duggar just welcomed their second child in about two years. Most of the children are on pace to have large families of their own, so it never comes as a surprise when another Duggar announces that they are expecting.
Jinger Duggar recently said that asking about pregnancies should not be taken offensively
In a recent episode of Counting On, Joe and Kendra Duggar visited Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo in Laredo, Texas. While they were together, Kendra asked Jinger if she was planning to have another baby any time soon. Jinger seemed to avoid the question as best she could but hinted that another baby could be in the future.
In her show interview, Jinger mentioned that while some people feel offended when they’re asked about their family plans, in the Duggar family, it’s something that nobody takes offensively. However, she seemed to make it clear in her expression that she didn’t love being asked about her plans to have another child.
Some fans think Jinger Duggar is pregnant with her second child
Duggar fans seem to have a sixth sense when it comes to determining whether someone is expecting. Fans have called out many Duggars for their pregnancies long before they are announced and have even correctly guessed the genders of some couple’s babies. And now, many fans think Jinger is pregnant with baby no. 2. Fans have noticed her photos have strategically been blocking her stomach, and some think they saw a slight baby bump in her Thanksgiving post. Time will tell if fans are right once again and whether Jinger and Jeremy do have another baby on the way.
