Jill Duggar's Social Media Activity Has Fans Wondering if She's Pregnant

As rumors abound that another member of the Duggar family is pregnant, Jill asserted over Instagram this week that it is definitely not her. On an Insta Live video on Thursday, Jill answered the question once and for all about if she's expecting, but it's really what her husband Derick Dillard said that gave fans pause. 

  • Not only did Jill deny being pregnant, but her hubby made a comment about it being "impossible."

    On Thursday, Derick decided to film an Instagram Live session of his wife cooking dinner, in an undisclosed location for some reason. He explained that they were not at home but refused to reveal where they were staying.

    Regardless, he showed Jill at the stove, cooking some sort of Asian noodle dish with bok choy, and he took questions from fans, who were able to type them in live as they filmed. Of course the number one question was if she's expecting baby number three.

  • Jill looked seriously offended, and she even sucked in her stomach at the suggestion.

    She replied with a vehement "No," and Derick responded, "We're not going to be pregnant this year." Jill was taken aback, and asked him, "How do you know?"

    He replied that it would be "biologically impossible" for them to have a baby this year, but he may have been talking about actually giving birth. It's August, so if she's not even pregnant yet, any baby born in 2019 likely wouldn't survive outside the womb. But it was still a really odd thing to say, especially as the Duggars consider every pregnancy to be a child.

    Derick also made an interesting comment on the number of children they'd like to have, stating, "At least two." Jill had difficult C-section deliveries with both their sons, which may have changed their plans of having a large family like the one she grew up in.

  • If Jill isn't pregnant, that pretty much confirms that John David Duggar's wife Abbie is expecting.

    Thanks to a slipup from Jessa (Duggar) Seewald, we're almost positive that one of the Duggar couples is secretly pregnant. The only two married contenders are Jill or Abbie, and given their odd Instagram post of their engagement anniversary this week, fans are pretty convinced it's Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's newest daughter-in-law.

  • Honestly, we're kind of surprised that Jill hasn't announced another pregnancy.

    After all, Sam just turned 2, and Israel was 4 in the spring. Considering how they've often talked about having a large family, we'd expect her to already be pregnant again. Especially with how often she talks about their sex life. Just saying. 

    Anyway. We won't be surprised to hear another Duggar pregnancy announcement soon -- it's mostly just a question of who will be sharing the news.
