With Jessa Seewald two days past her due date, now is the perfect time is speculate whether the former “19 Kids and Counting” star is having a boy or a girl. Jessa and her husband Ben Seewald previously shared their plans to keep their child’s gender a secret, but that hasn’t stopped the reality star couple from dropping hints about their baby’s gender. Below is a roundup of all of the clues and rumors about their baby’s gender.
A few weeks after revealing her pregnancy, Jessa shared a photo of her and Ben on Instagram in honor of Father’s Day. In the candid shot, Jessa sported a dark-colored T-shirt with the phrase “touchdown" on it, leading many fans to believe it was a clue she was having a boy. It is worth noting that the couple announced they had learned their baby’s gender just days prior in a June 18 blog post. “We recently had an ultrasound, but aren’t revealing our firstborn’s gender yet,” Ben wrote. “Can’t wait to welcome this blessing from God into the world!”
2. Shoe color
In July, Jessa shared a pregnancy update with fans, posting a photo of her and Ben’s feet surrounded by a pair of baby shoes. Fans were divided over the clues dropped in the photo. Some felt the pink shoes were a clear giveaway Jessa was having a girl, while others stated the shoes were clearly meant for a baby boy. “I have never seen the girls in Jessa’s family wear shoes like that,” one fan commented.
3. All Pink All The Time
One month after the pink shoes debacle, Jessa’s decision to wear pink from head to toe in her 27 week pregnancy update, once again, sparked gender rumors. In the Aug. 5 post, Jessa shared a photo of her growing bump and herself wearing pink lipstick, a hot pink top, sporting a pink phone case and wearing matching pink earrings.
4. Poll results
Jessa’s fans seem adamant the reality star is expecting a baby girl. The couple previously asked their supporters to participate in an online poll on their blog and in October, they released the results. Out of 110,000 votes, over 58,000 revealed they think Jessa and Ben will welcome a daughter. Just over 8,600 fans shared their belief that Jessa was pregnant with twin girls. Other results showed 23,158 fans felt Jessa was having a boy.
5. Baby Quincy
Jessa and Ben have been calling their little one “Quincy.” The couple revealed to the Duggar Family Blog last month that the nickname came about when they were discussing baby names. According to TheNameMeaning.com, Quincy is a Latin name that means “fifth.” It is also gender neutral.
