Ever since announcing her pregnancy in April, Jessa (Duggar) Seewald has used social media as a way to update her “19 Kids and Counting” fans on her growing baby bump. But with her sister-in-law Anna Duggar's social media posts too far and few between, it appears the expectant reality star is also doing her part to update viewers on her co-star’s pregnancy progress as well.
After sharing a new baby bump photo with fans on Facebook Wednesday, Jessa — who is currently 22 weeks along — took to the comments section to reply to her loyal followers and even answer a few questions. After remarking she “feels like a beach whale,” to one fan, she divulged some precious details about Anna’s pregnancy, confirming that no, she has not had her baby yet.
“Her due date is July 10th, so getting close,” Jessa wrote. While the mom of three is due to deliver next week, Jessa, 22, hinted the newest member of the Duggar family may come earlier than first anticipated. “She has gone a little early with all three so far, so we’ll see if baby No. 4 will do the same!” she wrote.
Anna, 27, is married to Jessa’s eldest brother, Josh Duggar. The couple have three children together, daughter Mackynzie, 5, and sons Michael, 4, and Marcus, 2. They announced they were expecting their fourth child in December 2014. In March, they confirmed they were having a girl. Their gender reveal party was featured on a Season 9 episode of “19 Kids and Counting” two months later.
While “19 Kids and Counting” viewers will be treated to news of the newest Duggar arrival later this month, fans will have to wait until the fall to get a glimpse of Jessa’s baby. The newlywed is due to welcome her first child with husband Ben Seewald on Nov. 1. The date also marks their one-year wedding anniversary. The couple have learned the gender of their baby, but are saving the big reveal until the child is born.
As for if the girls’ deliveries will be featured on “19 Kids and Counting,” that remains to be seen. TLC pulled the reality series after a decade on-air in May after it was revealed Josh, now 27, had molested five underage girls as a teenager. Jessa, and one of her sisters, Jill (Duggar) Dillard, were later confirmed to be two of his victims. TLC has not announced their plans for the program.
