‘Counting On:’ Anna Duggar Just Confirmed Which Duggar is Due Next

The Duggar family is one of the largest families in the United States. And with that, there is never a shortage of news among Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar’s 19 children. Just a few weeks ago, there were five Duggar women expecting babies. Now that Jessa Duggar has given birth, it’s down to four, and Anna Duggar just told fans the order in which the women will have their kids.

Five Duggar women have made pregnancy announcements this year

Jessa Duggar was the first Duggar to announce a pregnancy in 2019. Back in January, she took to Instagram to post an adorable family photo featuring her husband, Ben Seewald, and their two boys, Spurgeon and Henry. Duggar kept the baby’s gender private from her family, though she and her husband knew what they were having. A short time later, it became baby central in the Duggar family — Anna Duggar, Kendra Caldwell, Joy Duggar, and Lauren Swanson all announced pregnancies within weeks of each other. Fans were elated, and there will be plenty of new family members added to the Duggar crew in the next several months.

Jessa Duggar was the first of the five women to give birth. She and Ben Seewald welcomed a little girl in late May; their daughter actually arrived early, so she was a bit of a surprise for the two (their two sons had both arrived five days late). They were thrilled to welcome a girl, since there are so many boys in the Duggar family, and Jessa already had two of them. Jessa became the second Duggar daughter to welcome a girl, behind Jinger Duggar, who welcomed her daughter last summer. Up until now, Jessa, Jinger, and Joy had all only had boys.

Anna Duggar just made it clear that Kendra Caldwell is due next

A few days ago, Anna Duggar posted a photo of the five pregnant Duggar women, which the family took on Easter. Now that Jessa Duggar has had her baby, fans have been trying to guess the order in which the remaining four women will welcome their children. “Ok, here is my guesstimate [sic] lol Jessa, Joy Anna, Lauren, Kendra, Anna is the delivery timeline,” one fan wrote. “It looks like Joy Anna is next then either Anna or Lauren… last is Kendra..” another fan suspected. Anna Duggar commented on the photo to clear the air. “Kendra, Joy, Lauren and I’m due last,” she wrote. Kendra Caldwell is married to Joseph Duggar, and Lauren Swanson is married to Josiah Duggar.

The women might not give birth in that exact order, depending on whether they’re early or late  

Of course, the due dates don’t guarantee which baby will arrive first. According to Anna, all four women are due in November, which means if some babies arrive early and others arrive late, the mothers-to-be might welcome their little ones out of order. Regardless of who gives birth next, November should be an exciting month for the Duggar family.
