Joanna Gaines Ultrasound Raises Serious Concerns; Is Her Baby in Trouble?

Just a few days after Chip and Joanna Gaines announced to the world that they’re expecting their fifth child, medical experts say the couple may have cause for serious concern when it comes to the baby.

This concern centers around an ultrasound photo Joanna shared on Tuesday of her unborn baby.

On January 2, Chip confirmed the exciting news of a fifth bundle of joy on the way for him and his wife, as the Fixer Upper star shared an adorable picture (below) and wrote as a caption:

“Gaines party of 7.. (If you’re still confused.. WE ARE PREGNANT) @joannagaines.”

The HGTV stars are parents to four children: Drake, 12, Ella, 11, Duke, 9, and Emmie Kay, 7.

They’ll feature the kids occasionally on their wildly popular home renovation show, but only in snippets; only to show everyone gathered at home for some ice cream or something.

At various times last year, Chip made comments that hinted he and Joanna were trying (or thinking about trying) for another boy or girl.

As a follow-up to her husband’s cute news-breaking photo and message, Joanna posted a picture of her ultrasound, writing along with it:

“Chip swears he can already tell it’s a boy. Look at the little heartbeat!!”

Sadly, however, many Internet users are focused on something else.

According to TMZ sources and others in the medical community, it looks very much as if there’s excess fluid around the fetus.

This has many wondering if the baby has a condition known as hydrops fetalis, which can be fatal.

You can take a close look at the ultrasound below:

It’s important to note here that this one ultrasound image is not conclusive.

There are other angles and other photos an expert would need to study in order to determine whether extra fluid is in additional cavities such as the heart, lungs or abdomen.

So states a radiologist from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to TMZ.

Chip and Joanna announced in October that they were ending Fixer Upper after five seasons.

“While we are confident that this is the right choice for us, it has for sure not been an easy one to come to terms with,” they said at the time, adding:

“Our family has grown up alongside yours, and we have felt you rooting us on from the other side of the screen.”

Cynics questioned whether this decision was simply a contract negotiating ploy, but Chip and Joanna remained adamant that they simply needed a break.

And they cited their family as the main reason why.

“This has nothing to do with a fraudulent skincare line or anything else you’ll inevitably read,” they continued.

“This is just us recognizing that we need to catch our breath for a moment.

“Our plan is to take this time to shore up and strengthen the spots that are weak, rest the places that are tired and give lots of love and attention to both our family and our businesses.”

We don’t know how far along Joanna is, so it’s possible she was already pregnant at the time of this announcement.

All we can say now, meanwhile, is that we’ll keep the couple in our thoughts and we will wish them all the best.


Matt Roloff Christmas Photo Sparks New Drinking Concerns

Matt Roloff can't exactly catch a break these days.

The Little People, Big World star appears to get dragged online for almost any reason, even when he shares a seemingly innocent photo of himself.

Case in point?

The picture below of Roloff in a funny hat at the supermarket.

After taking a glance at it, many followers wondered whether an intervention was needed for Matt's alleged drinking problem.

We wish we were kidding, but scroll down…

1. "Getting in the full Christmas spirit."

That’s what Matt wrote as a caption to this photo. Pretty simple, right? Pretty funny, no? Those would be our only reactions to the image.

2. However…

… not everyone saw it our way. They took one quick look at Roloff in a festive mood and their mind went someplace else; specifically, to what caused him to be in this sort of mood.

3. Case in Point:

Case in point
This one person clearly thought alcohol played a role in Matt’s mood, and he or she seemed pretty judgmental about it in writing these two words.

4. Did He Fall Off the Wagon?

Did he fall off the wagon
This is what some are wondering. No, Matt is not an alcoholic. Yes, however, he has one unfortunate mark on his record that have made some think he has a drinking problem.

5. The Arrest

The arrest
In July of 2007, Roloff was arrested for drunk driving. Cops pulled him over after they spotted his vehicle swerving between lanes. Authorities reported Roloff allegedly failed the field sobriety test. He was taken to the Washington County jail where he was cited for a DUI.

6. This Was His Second Offense

In 2003, Matt was convicted of drunken driving in Multnomah County, court records prove. The charge was dismissed a year later after he successfully completed an alcohol diversion program.

Jessa Duggar Video Sparks Concerns For Son’s Health

During the many Duggar controversies of recent weeks, Jessa Duggar and her husband Ben Seewald have kept a relatively low profile.

But despite her remarkable ability to keep her head above water, at the end of the day, Jessa’s a Duggar, which means everything she does is subject to intense scrutiny and likely to spark outrage or concern.

The latest controversy surrounding the Seewalds concerns their eldest son, Spurgeon.

Duggar parenting methods are often called into question, and the younger generations love of social media has only made the probing from fans even more intense.

Earlier this week, Jessa posted a photo of 21-month-old son Spurgeon giggling in the passenger seat of her car.

“Workin’ on some basic drivers ed: a/c controls, hazards, eco mode, and radio,” she captioned the clip.

It was a cute and innocent enough moment, but it made some fans wonder if Spurgeon is developing on schedule.

You can watch the full video below to see what all the fuss is about:

Spurgeon’s lack of verbal expression has prompted many fans to speculate that he might be unable to speak.

The boy will be 2 years old in November, so if he doesn’t have at least a few words in his vocabulary, he would be somewhat behind in his verbal development, but it’s hardly cause for serious concern.

Nevertheless, many fans voiced their fears for Spurgeon’s future on Jessa’s instagram page.

And several pointed out that this is the second time in as many weeks that Jessa’s parenting has come under fire.

“They clearly baby him,” one commenter wrote.

“He had bottles in his mouth which people were confused about on a different picture and when you talk to and treat a child like an infant it can delay their mental growth.”

The “bottles” comment refers to a recent photo of Spurgeon in which he was seen carrying two baby bottles.

At the time, fans expressed similar developmental concerns, noting that at nearly 2 years old, he should no longer be drinking from a bottle.

At least one fan rushed to Jessa’s defense, noting that making a diagnosis of developmental delays on the basis of a 17-second video is more than a little absurd.

“I studied infant/toddler development and have a early ed degree,” the follower wrote.

“This baby isn’t even two yet and there is nothing wrong with how he was behaving.”

Someone needs to tell these concern-trolling fans that there’s plenty to criticize the Duggars about without dragging young children into it.
