Counting On Sneak Peek: 3 Babies and a Wedding!

Well, it's that time again.

Another season of Counting On is upon us, and once again, it finds the Duggar family expanding at an exponential rate.

In a preview released today, TLC promises viewers will witness the arrivals of not one, not two, but three babies!

Yes, it can be hard to keep track of the baby news coming from TV's most fertile family, so here's a rundown of what you can expect this season:

Joy-Anna Duggar welcomed her first child back in February and it looks as though the delivery was documented by Counting On cameras.

Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell welcomed their first child just last month, and the special occasion was recently the subject of a Counting On special.

And Jinger Duggar is currently pregnant with her first — and we imagine when the baby arrives, TLC cameras will be present.

So we guess when TLC promised three babies, they really meant one.

Whatevs, we're sure there will still be more diapers than you can shake a stick at.

In other Duggar news, Josiah married Lauren Swanson last month, and it seems we'll get to see the big moment when he popped the question on an upcoming episode.

Now, this might be a more intriguing prospect than all those occupied wombs.

On previous occasions that Lauren got in front of a camera, she came off as awkward and nervous.

Often, she appeared to be reading from cue cards or reciting lines that had clearly been rehearsed.

The situation has led fans to the conclusion that she's not totally comfortable with the whole reality stardom thing.

Of course, the real test will come when Lauren makes her big Counting On debut.

Was it simply a case of early jitters, or is she really not on board with participating in the family business?

We'll find out when the new season debuts on TLC July 30.

Watch Counting On online to get caught up in the meantime.

Even if you're a diehard fan who's never missed an episode, you could probably use a refresher course.

At this point, even the Duggars are probably having trouble keeping track of all those pregnancies and weddings.

Joy-Anna Duggar & Kendra Caldwell: Check Out Our Matching Babies!

Folks, a full-on Duggar baby boom is in effect.

In case you’ve been having trouble keeping up with all the births, pregnancies, and rumored pregnancies, here’s a brief rundown.

Back in February, Joy-Anna Duggar gave birth to her first child, a boy named Gideon Forsyth.

Earlier this month, Kendra Caldwell and Joseph Duggar welcomed their first, a boy named Gideon Duggar.

The upside of so many births taking place in such rapid succession is that the kids will never want for companionship as they grow up.

The downside, however, is that these babies better enjoy being the center of attention while they can!

Currently, Jinger Duggar is expecting her first child, and there have been rumors that Jill Duggar is pregnant with her third.

By our estimation, the planet will be roughly 73 percent Duggar by the time you finish reading this sentence.

We kid, of course.

It’s a wonderful thing that the Duggars are welcoming so many bundles of joy these days.

And, of course, fans get to share in the baby bliss thanks to photos like the one above.

That’s Joy on the right and Kendra on the left, both with G-named babies in arms.

Now, we’re sure there are parents of newborns who are currently zipping down to the comments to inform us that there’s a world of developmental difference between a four-month-old and a two-week-old baby.

But what seems like a chasm now will be a microscopic fissure for most of the boys’ lives.

In all likelihood, Gideon and Garrett will be in the same grade at the same school.

(We suppose it’s possible that their parents might relocate, but we all know Jim Bob bribes his kids to stay in Arkansas.)

For the most part, it seems that the new generation of Duggars will be maintaining tradition by sticking close to one another and raising cousins like siblings.

Of course, it seems that in some ways, they’re already doing things their own way.

For example, Kendra gave birth in a hospital, instead of at home with a midwife, as is customary for Duggars.

If you think that doesn’t sound like a big deal, clearly you don’t remember the uproar when Jinger started wearing pants.

These people aren’t exactly huge embracers of change.

KUWTK Season 15: New Babies! New Drama! New Footage!

Things have really changed.

So says Kim Kardashian in the first trailer for new episodes of her family's beloved/totally hated reality show.

And this may be the understatement of the century.

Since we last saw Kim and her siblings on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kylie Jenner has given birth to a baby.

Khloe Kardashian has also given birth to a baby.

And Tristan Thompson has been revealed as a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad cheater.

So, yes, as Kim notes above: Things have really changed. A lot.

But one thing has remained the same on Keeping Up with the Kardashians: The drama and the bond between sisters.

The latter, however, will be tested a bit on Season 15.

"Have you looked on the Internet? Do you see what people say about me compared to you?" a salty Kourtney asks Kendall Jenner at one point in the following trailer.

In promoting upcoming installments, meanwhile, Kim linked to this video and wrote:

"Probably our most rude argumentative fighting season we've ever had and I still hold my ground and am not backing down LOL."

Responded Khloe to this Tweet, in a Tweet of her own:

"You've turned into a f-cking savage."

Up until this point on the show, no one had even acknowledged that Kylie was expecting her first baby.

So fans are clearly anxious to see whether Stormi Webster or baby daddy Travis Scott will make appearances on Season 15.

Elsewhere, Kourtney will be dealing with all the drama surrounding Scott Disick and Sofia Richie; while eyes will remain keenly focused on poor Khloe and her future as a mother/girfriend of a cheater.

Will she stick by Thompson's side?

Will new episodes give us an idea of what she is leaning toward doing?

"Sooner or later, you guys are gonna realize how much you all mean to one another," Kris Jenner notes in this preview, which promises that this season will take viewers "behind the headlines."

And, as always, there have been plenty of those when it comes to the Kardashians.

Ready to keep up with them once again?

Get your first look at Season 15 below!

Kendall Jenner: My Sisters Keep Popping Out Babies!

Forget what you’ve read.

Forget what you’ve heard.

Forget what you think you know.

Kendall Jenner is NOT pregnant with Blake Griffin’s baby/

This rumor has sprung up multiple times over the past several weeks, with various sources saying Kendall has turned down a number of modeling gigs of late due to a growing belly.

But this isn’t true.

Let’s stop pretending otherwise.

However, just because Jenner does not have a tiny humab growing in her fetus, this doesn’t mean her life these days isn’t basically surrounded by tiny human beings.

“It’s forever growing…” Kendall said of her family in a cover story for the latest issue of Elle, adding in this revealing interview:

“Every time I think it’s eased up, someone’s popping out a baby.”

She’s not really kidding, either.

To bring readers up to speed:

Kim Kardashian welcomed a baby girl (via surrogate) named Chicago in mid-January of this year.

Kylie Jenner welcomed a baby girl named Stormi on February 1.

Khloe Kardashian welcomed a baby girl named True on April 11.

Even for a group of loved ones who always seems to be making news of some kind, this has been quite a whirlwind of a few months.

Kendall, meanwhile, has simply been walking runways and modeling clothing and NOT changing any diapers.

What has it been like to see her younger sibling take on the responsibility of motherhood?

“It’s obviously a bit weird that your little sister is having a baby before you,” Kendall told the publication. “I didn’t expect it to happen like this. But it’s beautiful.”

Kendall is just 22 years old, of course. So she has plenty of time to make a family if she wants to someday.

For now, though, she seems content with the family she already has, especially now that she and Kylie feel more connected than ever before.

“It’s brought us closer together,” she tells Elle of Kylie giving birth to Stormi, continuing as follows:

“We’ve always been very close, but we would butt heads all the time. This has made her a bit more loving toward me.”

Honestly, she’s probably just buttering up Aunt Kendall so she won’t object to babysitting down the line!

We kid, of course. It’s very nice to see that Kendall and Kylie have been brought closer by the presence of Stormi.

Kendall doesn’t really discuss her personal life in this issue of Elle, which will be available on newsstands on May 22, but that’s not unusual.

This is the one member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan who seems to shun the spotlight a little bit.

Yes, she uses it to her advantage from time to time and she appears on Keeping Up with the Kardashians each season.

But the next time you see Kendall kiss her boyfriend on Instagram or get pregnant out of wedlock, it will be the first.

Gotta admire her for that, don’t you?

Duggars Only Have Sex to Make Babies, Fans Allege

If you know anything at all about the Duggars, then you’re probably aware that the family has some … interesting views on sex and procreation.

You might think a couple that sired an astonishing 19 chlidren would be 100 percent pro-intercourse.

But that’s actually quite far from the case.

Prior to marriage, Jim Bob and Michelle’s kids are required to follow the strict Duggar courtship rules.

That means dating is allowed only in the presence of a chaperone; hand-holding is limited to a period of 15 seconds or less, and “front-hugging” is forbidden, as it may clothed genitals into perilously close proximity.

(“Side-hugs” – in which the participants basically just put their arms around each other’s shoulders and give a quick squeeze – is still allowed.)

Needless to say, kissing and actual sex are very much forbidden.

But once the rings are on the fingers and the vows have been exchanged, it’s a very different story.

From that point forward, the Duggar offspring and their spouses are encouraged to rub their bits together until they chafe.

Of course, even within the confines of a loving marriage, there are rules.

The Duggars do not believe in birth control, which means you can look at how many kids each of them has made and get a rough idea of how many times they’ve had sex in their lives.

We kid, of course, but the super-strict guidelines placed on the Duggars genitals do raise a lot of questions.

And it seems the query that’s foremost on the minds of many viewers this week is: do the Duggars ever have sex just for fun?

“So do these guys never enjoy sex for the joy of it?” one fan asked in a Reddit forum devoted to the family.

“Or is it simply to have kids. Or get to know each other and get into their groove without babies straight away? I mean I LOVED spending three years married without a baby straight away, we traveled had fun before baby came along,” the user continued.

“Do the girls ever want to do something else besides have babies? Like get out of their small town see the world meet new people but on their own without the controlling parents or husbands? Just curious is all.”

“I don’t think these kids are allowed to have wants outside of what they have been brainwashed to want,” another user replied.

“I know they seem to like this life. I guess when you don’t know anything else you just accept it,” a third remarked.

“But even the Amish give their kids the choice. It’s nice to live in a bubble but I often wonder if any of the girls long for adventure and independence at least for a little while.”

Interestingly, all of this speculation comes on the heels of the revelation that Joy-Anna Duggar considered her parents to be too strict during her upbringing.

So it seems that not all Duggar children simply accept their lot blindly.

Of course, it still appears doubtful that any of them will ever make their displeasure known publicly.

Anna Duggar Throws Shade At In-Laws: I Make the Most Babies!

As the wife of the notorious Josh Duggar, Anna Duggar has endured an awful lot in recent years.

Through it all, however, the beleaguered mother of five has kept a smile on her face and has never had anything but kind words for her famous in-laws.

Until now, that is …

In a recent social media post, Anna made a comment that some Duggar fans are interpreting as subtle trash talk.

“I’m so thankful for the 5 beautiful children God has given us (+1 in heaven!). Jim Bob & Michelle have 10 grandchildren and 2 more on the way,” Anna wrote.

“On Joshua’s side of the family I’m mommy to 1/2 of the grandchildren so far…and the only grand-daughters! #FunFactFriday @duggarfam.”

The “+1 in heaven” remark refers to the miscarriage Anna suffered in 2010.

Anna has discussed the loss before, referring to it as the great heartbreak of her life.

But what fans are most focused on in her latest post is the remark about how many grandchildren Anna has provided for Jim Bob and Michelle.

If you’re a fan of the family, you know that with the exception of their religious beliefs, the Duggars prioritize procreation above all else.

So when Anna casually points out that she’s birthed half of the Duggar grandchildren and all of Jim Bob and Michelle’s granddaughters, it’s hard not to see it as a boast.

It’s the sort of comment that Duggar fans would normally be quick to call out, but in this case, it seems the consensus is that Anna has earned a pass.

In addition to having endured multiple Josh Duggar sex scandals, Anna is currently living a life of virtual exile as a result of her controversial decision to stand by her man.

Josh and Anna live in a separate town and they have no involvement with his family’s media empire.

Josh isn’t completely cut off – he currently works on a used car lot that’s co-owned by his father – but he’s not exactly his parents’ favorite. 

Anna welcomed her fifth child back in September of 2017, but the occasion was not met with the fanfare that usually surrounds a Duggar birth.

In fact, baby Meredith became the first Duggar grandchild whose birth was not filmed.

The Duggars reasons for keeping their distance from Josh are obvious, of course.

Fans remain revolted by his actions and every time they’re reminded of his continued existence, the reaction is harsh.

It’s shocking that the Duggars were able to rebuild their brand following the Josh scandals, and they’re not about to risk it by welcoming him back on TV.

Unfortunately for poor Anna, she’s just an innocent who was dragged down by her husband’s actions.

So you really can’t blame her for occasionally reminding the world that she’s more than just a long-suffering wife.

Kylie Jenner: No More Babies — I Love Plastic Surgery Too Much!

Kylie Jenner has been a mother now for over a month — and still, how wild is that?!

It’s been five whole weeks now since she gave birth to little Stormi, and by all accounts, she’s loving motherhood.

Well, she’s reportedly a little iffy about that whole dirty diaper situation, and sources have claimed that she has gotten overwhelmed by her daughter’s crying.

But then again, she’s a spoiled 20-year-old who’s found herself in an odd situation, and babies can be overwhelming, so …

We can cut her a little bit of slack, right?

Oh, and while we’re talking about it, can you guess one more thing that Kylie doesn’t love about being a mom?

According to a source who spoke with Radar Online, it’s the fact that in order for her to have Stormi, she had to go several moths without having plastic surgery or any cosmetic procedures of any kind.

Nine moths without lip fillers — the horror!

The source claims that Kylie had such a rough time not messing with her face that now that she’s able, she’s fully prepared to “go overboard” with plastic surgery.

Not only that, but the girl “couldn’t be happier” about it.

“She told her sisters that the best day in her entire life was when she could get fillers in her lips again because she hated the way she looked when they deflated during her pregnancy!” the source says.

… Really? That’s the best day in her entire life?

Not the birth of her daughter? Not even the day she dumped Tyga for good?

Oh, Kylie, what are we ever going to do with you?

Unfortunately, this situation may actually be pretty serious — the source also claims that Kylie may get some work done against medical advice.

“Kylie wants to go against her doctors’ wishes by doing coolsculpting and other non-invasive weight-shedding procedures,” this insider says.

“At the same time, she would get her lips and entire face done up with fillers.”

The source adds that “She said that she never wants to get pregnant again because of how it made her look. She hated being non-plastic!”

Could any of this be true?

Yeah, maybe.

As soon as we heard the news of Kylie’s pregnancy, we began hearing reports about how much she hated what the pregnancy was doing to her body.

Hearing a rumor over and over again doesn’t make it true, obviously, but it’s interesting that she essentially went into hiding until after she gave birth.

She looks amazing now, just five weeks after having Stormi, but she’s also 20 years old, and very possibly into those “non-invasive weight-shedding procedures.”

But could she have been uncomfortable enough with her appearance during pregnancy to go this crazy with plastic surgery now?

Again, yeah, maybe.

Since this is Kylie we’re talking about, we won’t really have to wonder for too long — if she does get reacquainted with her beloved fillers, you know we’ll see the proof in some selfies.

Never change, girl!

Jennifer Aniston to Brad Pitt: Put Babies In Me!

As you’ve likely heard by now, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux recently called it quits after just two years of marriage.

Naturally, when word of Jen’s separation went public, fans immediately began to spread the rumor that Aniston would be getting back together with Brad Pitt.

Some have even gone so far as to suggest that Pitt was the cause of Aniston and Theroux’s breakup.

That doesn’t appear to be the case, as the consensus amongst insiders is that Jen and Justin parted ways for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that he envisioned a life on the East Coast, far from the scrutiny of Hollywood, while she’s still very much of that world.

So in all likelihood, the split had nothing to do with Brad, and things just fell apart for the myriad boring reasons that marriages usually fall apart.

And in all probability, Brad and Jen are probably not planning to reconcile – at least not yet, anyway.

But that doesn’t mean Jen has no immediate use for her OG ex-husband.

According to Radar Online, Jen is hoping to have a child with Brad.

However, she seems to have no intention of welcoming him into her bed:

“Jen isn’t talking about getting back together with Brad — at least not now,” says a source close to the former couple.

“But she smartly had her eggs frozen years ago, and now she’s asked Brad to donate the sperm so they can finally have a child together!”

Yes, it seems Jen’s name is on the very short list of women who could easily have sex with Brad Pitt, but are opting not to.

The actress’ responses to those all-too-frequent “Jennifer Aniston is pregnant!!!” rumors have ranged from apathetic to annoyed, but those who know her best say that she entered into both marriages with the intention of starting a family:

“When they got married, Jen said she wanted to start a family, and for Justin, it was important to have kids,” says the source.

Brad famously ditched Jen for Angelina Jolie after meeting the actress on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith (which is probably still Jen’s least favorite movie), but these days the former flames are both single and presumably ready to mingle.

And by “mingle,” of course, we mean endure a series of costly medical procedures in hope of procreating.

We say go for it, you crazy kids!

That would be one ludicrously photogenic baby!
