Jessa Duggar Hints at Twins Again in New 'Counting On' Promo


They're pregnant again already, but are they expecting more than one this time? Jessa (Duggar) and Ben Seewald may be having twins this time, if a new promo for Counting On is any indication.


TLC just picked up the 19 Kids and Counting spin-off show for a third season, and one of the story lines it will follow is Ben and Jessa's second pregnancy. The two are already parents to little Spurgeon, 1, and will welcome at least one more in the new year.

Since announcing her pregnancy, Jessa has been coy at the number of babies she's gestating, and it looks like there's a good possibility that she's carrying twins. In a clip for the new season, Jill (Duggar) Dillard uses a doppler to listen to baby's heartbeat, and is quite surprised by what she hears.


Spurgeon's mama hinted again at having multiples, saying, "We don't know if it's twins or just one," just before Jill took a listen to the fetal heartbeat. 

Normally we wouldn't put much credence into at-home doppler assessments for twins or not, but Jill is a trained midwife, and she said she couldn't be sure there's only one in there. She concluded, "It could be just one baby with good variability in the heartbeat or it could be two different babies."

Twins definitely run in the family (mom Michelle had two sets), so it's not out of the realm of likely possibilities. We're hoping that Jessa has had an ultrasound to check baby's health since this was filmed, and given how mum she was about her firstborn's impending arrival, we wouldn't be surprised if we don't find out until after the birth.

However many are in there, we couldn't be happier for Jessa's growing little family.
