Duggar Nation is wondering yet again if Jill Dillard is pregnant with her second child, thanks to a Dillard family photo posted on Instagram.
Rumors that Jill is pregnant are not new, we know.
Still, fans believe the 25-year-old looks different in a recent photo she posted on social media with Derick, his brother Dan and Dan’s wife:
Jill shared the above pic with Israel, Derick, Dan, and Deena Dillard, writing, “Thank you for the wonderful Christmas celebration yesterday!”
The couples, along with baby Israel, were all smiles posing in front of the fireplace … and obviously, speculation turned to her womb.
Of the possibility that Jill Duggar is pregnant, one fan wrote, “She certainly looks it! Very early though. Probably why she hasn’t said anything!”
This is not the first time that Jill’s pics have sparked pregnancy rumors … this month. Remember Dillard hiding her baby bump (allegedly)?
Wearing what seemed to be a loose top during Thanksgiving, this picture sparked talk of a new addition to the Duggar family soon, too:
“Jill Duggar looks pregnant. Seems every pic I see she’s larger than the previous one,” a fan commented, perhaps imagining things.
Some Counting On fans predicted that Jill would be making the announcement in Season 3, and has been holding off until its premiere.
With little sister Jinger’s wedding and Jessa’s second pregnancy, perhaps Jill did not want to steal her sisters’ thunder with her news?
As for her appearance, some counter that Jill already had “wide hips” even before she got pregnant, and may still have her baby weight.
From her first baby, that is. Given that Jill had to have a C-section with Izzy, it can’t be easy shedding the pounds – not that it ever is.
If you watch Counting On online, you may remember that Anna Duggar, Josh’s wife, predicted that Jill having another baby was inevitable.
“It won’t be long before we’ll be like, ‘Wait a minute. I know you’re my nephew but what’s your name?’” Anna said, citing the baby boom.
“With Jess and Ben expecting again, and Jill and Derick probably gonna be expecting soon, and then Jinger and Jeremy getting married.”
Derick also told Jill that he wanted to try for a biological second child baby before 2016 ends. Time is obviously running short as of now.
While they have openly talked about adopting (albeit less so than Jessa and Ben), Derick insisted that their next child should be biological.
Fueling the baby talk is the couple’s “temporary break” from mission work that is starting to feel like a permanent move home from El Salvador.
“Jill could be pregnant,” says an insider close to the family, noting that the developing country “is a hotbed for the Zika virus.”
If she’s expecting baby number two, then her “priority should be keeping that little one safe,” the source says, and it’s hard to argue.
“Baby rumors have been surrounding Jill basically ever since Israel was born nearly two years ago, so this wouldn’t surprise us at all.”
Would it surprise you? Or is this all just a bunch of the usual Duggar Internet speculation that isn’t grounded in any sort of reality?
