There are rumors running rampant for weeks that Jessa Duggar may be pregnant with her first child. Fans of the “19 Kids and Counting” reality star have been wondering when this blessed news will be revealed, while waiting with bated breath, since their wedding day. In Touch Weekly on Dec. 30 reported that Jessa and Ben could possibly already be expecting a child as recent photos of the couple seem to be hiding something.
One of the latest photos of Ben and Jessa shows them sitting on a sofa together. The little sign that has triggered some of the rumors is the fact that Jessa placed a pillow over her tummy. Is she hiding the fact that they are already expecting their first child or was it something that is as simple as the pillow being in the way when the person shooting the photo was ready and she just grabbed it to sit more comfortably together?
Then there is another view to the news if Jessa is indeed pregnant. Since all the family members are so close and Jessa, is in the limelight more since her wedding, she might be shying away from telling the good news until her sister Jill delivers her little bundle of joy. Jill is pregnant with a baby boy which is expected to be born in March of this year. Jessa may be waiting to tell the news to the public so as to not to steal the limelight away from her sister when Jill’s baby is brought into the world.
On Christmas Day, Jessa posted a photo and a message to her sister stating; “So thankful for this sweet girl Jill, you’re such an amazing example to me of what it means to be a loving wife—and now a mother also! I love you so much!! So blessed to call you my sister!” There was also another line that was on this Instagram message that no longer appears saying “and now a mother also” which is what fans and readers have been wondering about thinking Jessa is already with child.
Jim Bob and Michelle already have three grandchildren. Now they have two on the way. One from their son Josh and his wife Anna and another from Jill and her husband Derrick. When Jessa and Ben reveal their news, which is evident in this coming year, since procreating in the Duggar family is a gift that marriage offers and blessed every couple with as a way of sharing their love and building a happy and fulfilled family.
If you are a fan are you thinking Jessa and Ben are expecting, but just waiting to reveal the news at the right time and not to steal her sister’s thunder?
