Jessa Duggar just announced that she's expecting her first child with husband Ben Seewald, but the couple's official announcement on last night's episode of 19 Kids and Counting hints at some much bigger news: the baby's sex. Or rather, babies' genders! That's right: Jessa and Ben are hinting at twins!

Their video announcement is full of smoothies (the couple's favorite) and some major speculation. Take a look at their clue-ridden reveal:

Could it be? Will it be? It's certainly possible.

Michelle Duggar, Jessa's mom, had two sets of fraternal twins. Jana and John David and Jeremiah and Jedidiah were all multiples, so the possibility of twins for the Seewalds isn't exactly out of the question.

Unlike identical twins, fraternal twins actually tend to run in families. In the case of fraternal twins, two eggs are released from the mother at the same time due to hyperovulation, which happens when more than one eggs is released during a single cycle. 

Since Michelle has had two sets of twins, this hyperovulation could very well have been passed on to her children -- including Jessa.

But for now, it looks like we'll just have to stay tuned. Jill and Derick didn't announce Baby Dilly's gender until later in the pregnancy, so if Jessa follows suit, we'll have a few more weeks (maybe months) of waiting to hear if Baby Seewald is a boy or girl... or both!

Do you think Jessa and Ben are expecting twins?
