Why Fans Think There May Be Another Baby On The Way For The Duggar Family

Is the Duggar family about to "count on" one more member? Viewers first got hooked on the large clan thanks to their reality show, "19 Kids & Counting," as well as its spinoff, "Counting On." Both programs have since ended, but fans still follow the family through news reports and on social media. Some members of the Duggar family have been in the public eye for tragic reasons. This includes Josh Duggar's conviction of child pornography, per NBC News, and Jana Duggar's pleading guilty to endangering a child she was babysitting, according to Us Weekly. Unlike Josh and Jana, the other adult Duggar children are living quietly away from the cameras. Ten of the 19 children are currently married with families of their own, per Cheat Sheet. Jeremiah Duggar will join this number when he marries his fiancee, Hannah Wissmann, in late March 2022, per Instagram


As of this writing, there are 22 Duggar grandchildren in all, but that number will soon be changing. Jeremiah's twin, Jedidiah Duggar, and his wife are expecting a baby boy in the spring, according to InTouch Weekly. In February 2022, Jill Duggar Dillard just announced on her family blog that she and her husband were expecting a "rainbow baby" after suffering a miscarriage in October 2021. Now, sharp-eyed fans are speculating that yet another leaf is about to be added to the Duggar family tree.

Fans believe that Kendra Duggar might be pregnant

Joseph "Joe" Duggar is the seventh Duggar child and the third son, according to the family website. Joe has been married to Kendra Caldwell since 2017, and the pair are currently parents to son Garrett and daughters Addison and Brooklyn, per Cheat Sheet. But after recent photos of the couple surfaced on Facebook, fans are speculating that a fourth baby may be on the way. According to The US Sun, a Reddit user posted Facebook photos of the couple during a recent outing with Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. The photos include a group shot of the four, and a candid image of Joe giving his mom a side hug as Kendra looks on. Kendra's outfit — a black-and-white-striped dress with an empire waist — appeared to be concealing a baby bump. 


One Reddit commenter noted, "I have that exact dress. It's a maternity dress from Amazon." Another countered, "That kind of dress makes everyone look pregnant lol." Others noted the couple has already had three children in less than five years. "At this point we should rather speculate if it is possible that she is NOT pregnant," another user wrote. If the pregnancy gossip is true, it would hardly be unusual. The Duggars are conservative Christians who shun birth control in favor of letting God determine the size of their family, per Cheat Sheet. In Joe and Kendra Duggar's case, we may soon learn whether their family number is increasing by one.
