Jill & Jessa Duggar Accused of Planning Pregnancy Pact to Stay On-Air

Another day, another scandal involving the Duggars. This time, Jill and Jessa Duggar have been accused of planning a pregnancy pact in order to keeping TLC from canceling Counting On, the spin-off show from 19 Kids and Counting.

The original Duggar programming was canceled last summer, after a 2006 police report surfaced and revealed that eldest son Josh Duggar had molested five underage girls as a young teen, four of whom were his own sisters.

Of course things for Josh only went downhill from there, when the Ashley Madison hack exposed him as a cheater just a few months later. Last August, he confessed to being unfaithful to his wife Anna and their four kiddos, as well as being addicted to porn.

He checked himself into a faith-based rehab facility for nearly seven months ... just in time for TLC to film and produce the Jill and Jessa: Counting On spin-off. Of course things didn't go exactly as planning, and while the network enjoyed decent ratings, multiple companies pulled their advertising from the show, because they didn't want to be associated with the controversial family.

Which is why some people are questioning whether or not the sisters are planning a pregnancy pact, in order to get TLC to renew their show.

In the last episode of the season, Jill (who has 1-year-old Israel with Derick Dillard) and Jessa (mom to 6-month-old Spurgeon with Ben Seewald) addressed when they would be adding to their families again.

Both mamas said likely soon, and also that they expected to be pregnant again at the same time. Jill shared, "I think we will probably be pregnant at the same time, but to say who will be first, well Israel is older ... so we will see."

We highly doubt that Jill and Jessa would plan to be pregnant in order to save their show. They have 17 siblings and each had their first child approximately a year after after tying the knot. They're not exactly known for advocacy of only children.

Whether or not TLC renews Counting On, we're wishing Jill and Jessa a happy and healthy nine months -- whenever it happens for them.
