Jessa Duggar, the "19 Kids and Counting" star, who has been recently surrounded by pregnancy rumors, spoke out about having children of her own and also her desire to adopt a child. In a recent interview for the February issue of Celebrate Arkansas magazine, the 22-year-old TLC star said she has been praying to begin a family with Ben Seewald.
“We would love to have children of our own, and we would also love to adopt. It’s something we are constantly praying about,” Jessa said, according to Inquistr.
Fans have been waiting for an official announcement about Jessa's pregnancy since she got married to Ben in November.
A new photo featuring Jessa Duggar and Jill Dillard with their husbands was also posted on the official Facebook page of the TLC reality show on Wednesday. Jill, who is expecting her first child in March, showed off a baby bump, while Jessa did not seem to have one.
“New husbands. New babies. New season. Watch the new beginnings unfold on the season premiere of 19 Kids and Counting Tuesday, February 17th at 9/8c,” read the photo's caption, hinting that there could be a possible pregnancy announcement by Jessa and Ben in the new season.
However, the mention of “new babies” could also have a reference to Anna Duggar, who is expecting her fourth child with Josh Duggar.
According to media reports, fans speculate that Jessa and Ben may be waiting to make the announcement after the new episodes of the TLC show begin.
