‘Counting On’ Viewers Think Jessa Duggar Has a ‘Definite’ Baby Bump in Recent Photo

Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald share three children: Spurgeon, Henry, and Ivy Jane. The couple’s three kids are all close in age, and viewers know it’s common for Duggars to have kids one right after another. Duggar and Seewald haven’t announced a pregnancy in nearly two years, and fans can’t help but think that a recent photo of Duggar proves baby no. 4 is on the way.

Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald welcomed their youngest child more than a year ago

Duggar and Seewald wed back in November 2014, and they didn’t wait long to start a family. Though it’s surprisingly common for Duggars to become pregnant on their honeymoon, the Seewalds didn’t become pregnant for about three months after tying the knot. They welcomed their oldest child, Spurgeon, almost exactly one year after they wed.

The couple has since welcomed two more kids; Henry in 2017 and Ivy Jane in 2019. The couple has talked about adopting several children, and the two said in an interview with Us Weekly that they’re “considering” adopting their fourth child. However, with the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic still in full swing, it’s possible the couple’s plans to adopt a child from another state or country have been put on hold.

Fans are convinced a recent photo shows Duggar with a ‘definite bump’

Since the arrival of Ivy Jane, fans and critics alike have been speculating on when Duggar and Seewald might try for baby no. 4. Some suspected the two would move out of their two-bedroom house before welcoming another child, but now, a recent photo of Duggar and Seewald suggests that she might already be preparing to announce a pregnancy.

Seewald recently posted a photo alongside his wife in celebration of her 28th birthday, and viewers took to Reddit to discuss whether Duggar is hiding a bump in the photo.

“If you adjust the contrast/brightness/sharpness etc. on this photo you can see that Jessa has a definite bump,” one user wrote. “She’s also not wearing her wedding ring. Wonder if her fingers are puffy?” another user observed. “Between the bump, her face looking a bit thinner/paler (morning sickness) And her not wearing a ring, i’m pretty sure she would end up announcing a pregnancy in the next couple of days,” another person added.

Duggars don’t typically believe in birth control

It’s not uncommon for the Duggars to have many children. Michelle Duggar went through a miscarriage while on the pill years ago, and she has since raised her children to say no to birth control (though Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard have admitted they use it).

It wouldn’t surprise anyone if Duggar is pregnant, since, per one viewer, “she’s due to announce a pregnancy again soon.” Based on timing, it would make sense if Duggar and Seewald were getting ready for baby no. 4, though time will tell if viewers’ predictions are correct.
