Jill Dillard is predicting which of her many siblings will be the next one to have a baby. Jill, who’s mom to 16-month-old Israel, said she thinks her newly engaged sister Jinger Duggar and her fiancé Jeremy Vuolo could very well be announcing in the not-so-distant future that they’re expecting.
“We will just have to wait and see,” she said during an interview with Us Weekly on Tuesday. Her husband, Derick Dillard, also thinks Jinger will be next among the Duggar clan to announce a pregnancy. Speaking of babies, Jill told the outlet that she and Derick are looking forward to expanding their family and will wait until God blesses them with another bundle of joy.
Jill also opened up about her sister’s engagement telling the outlet that she thinks Jinger and Jeremy “balance each other out nicely.” She explained: “Jeremy seems to be steady, strong and a true leader, whereas Jinger loves someone else leading and is tenderhearted and more of a softy.”
The former “19 Kids And Counting” star and Jeremy announced they were engaged in July after a brief courtship. In an interview last week, Jinger revealed they hadn’t picked out a wedding date yet but know they want a small ceremony. “We’re trying to keep it intimate, between family and friends,” Jeremy said. “We want to be very intentional with who we invite.”
Jinger also said she’s looking forward to one day starting a family with her soon-to-be husband. “We haven’t talked about size, but I know we both love children,” she told the magazine. “They’re a joy. We’ll have to see what the Lord provides.”
While Jinger will have to wait until tying the knot before getting started on a family, her sister Jessa Seewald confirmed Tuesday that she’s pregnant with baby No. 2. Jessa and her husband, Ben Seewald, are parents to 9-month-old Spurgeon and are expecting the new baby (or babies) in February. “We are overjoyed to announce that Spurgeon has a new title in life as ‘big brother!’ We are so thankful that God is adding to our family,” they said in a joint statement to People magazine. “2017 is shaping up to be a wonderful year already.” In a video on their personal blog, Jessa and Ben said they don’t know the sex of their baby yet but have a feeling it’s going to be another boy.
