There might be more than one Duggar baby coming in 2017. Photos from “Counting On” family’s Thanksgiving celebration has fans of the TLC series buzzing that Jill Dillard might be expecting baby No. 2.
The Duggars released several candid photos from their family get-together Thursday night on Facebook, one of which showed Jill and her husband Derick Dillard sharing a sweet hug next to their son Israel. In the shot, Jill’s hair appears to be positioned to cover her abdomen, which caused a flurry among fans online.
“It looks like a tiny belly there how adorable,” wrote one supporter. “Looks like she hiding a baby bump,” wrote another. “She looks like a woman who has more of a baby sized bump then she did a couple of months ago,” reasoned one viewer.
The last “Counting On” viewers saw of Jill, she was acting as a bridesmaid in her sister Jinger Duggar’s wedding. Some Facebook fans now claim they suspected Jill was with child after the episode featuring the nuptials aired earlier this month.
“Looked like they were hiding it at the wedding with the bouquets and cameras angles,” reads one comment. “She’s been hiding a bump you could tell at Jinger’s wedding!” wrote another fan.
While some fans remain adamant that Jill is due to have another baby, others say the shot was likely just taken at a bad angle or that the mother of one was simply bloated after Thanksgiving dinner. “Maybe it’s a FOOD baby,” reasoned one individual. “I mean, it is Thanksgiving.”
The Dillard family photo was taken over Thanksgiving. Jill’s mother, Michelle Duggar, revealed on the family’s Facebook fan page that her brood of 19 celebrated the holiday together at a cabin in Arkansas’ Ozark Mountains. “We laughed together, cooked together, sang together, told fun family stories, played with kids and bounced babies,” she wrote. “It’s been a wonderful family time.”
If Jill and Derick, who have revealed they’re trying for a second child, do welcome another addition next year, they won’t be the only ones. Jill’s sister Jessa Seewald is due to give birth to her and husband Ben Seewald’s second child in February.
