When you have 18 brothers and sisters, chances are, people are going to have certain expectations about your future family size. And when you’re a reality star on a TLC series called Counting On? Well, that pretty much seals the deal: A big family is most definitely in your future. At least when it comes to the Duggars, that’s what many fans have assumed. Still, maybe one of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar’s children will opt for the path less-traveled (as far as they’re concerned) when it comes to family size. Since more and more of the adult Duggar children have gotten married and announced pregnancies, fans are probably wondering if those who are already parents are planning on adding to their broods. Like, does Jessa Duggar want more kids? All evidence points to the probability that she’ll be “counting on” at some point in the future.
In case you happened to miss the drama, rumors that Jessa was pregnant were rampant earlier in March. In fact, In Touch Weekly reported that Jessa was already four months pregnant with baby number three. An unnamed source told the publication that she and husband Ben Seewald “have been keeping the news under wraps, partly because it was in the early stages and also because she did not want to take away from the news that her brother Josiah [Duggar] and Lauren [Swanson] are getting married.” But you know how stories involving “unnamed sources” typically pan out. A Duggar family spokesperson told E! News the following day that Jessa was not, in fact, pregnant.
So yeah. I think it’s safe to say that Ben, 22, and Jessa, 25, are not expecting a third child — for now, at least….
