She’s setting the record straight! Anna Duggar finally commented on the rumors she’s expecting baby No. 6, after rocking the same dress she wore when she was “heavily pregnant” with her son Mason. The former 19 Kids and Counting star cleared the air over the weekend.

“I saw another pic and you definitely are showing,” one person commented under Anna’s new photos and she replied: “I’m not expecting…only overdue for a diet.” Several fans were praising the mother-of-five for breaking her silence on the speculation, noting how she looked great.

Anna, 30, took to Instagram on Monday, Sept. 3 to share a snap of her disgraced husband, Josh, and their kids, but many eagle-eyed fans were quick to point out the floral-print frock that she previously wore. Watch the video below to see the pic! 

One redditor wrote, “I think she’s pregnant. Yes, it’s sooner than her usual pattern, but I think she was pregnant at Si’s wedding.” This so-called “pattern” the user is referring to is the fact that Anna has given birth in all odd-numbered years for the last eight years. Mackynzie was born in 2009, Michael in 2007, Marcus in 2013, Meredith in 2015, and Mason in 2017. 

The last time the couple announced they were expecting was in May 2017. “For nearly the last two years, we have quietly worked to save our marriage, focus on our children, and rebuild our lives together as a family. Doing so is never easy after a breach of trust. We’ve learned that a life of faith and rebuilding a life together is simply done one day at a time,” the couple wrote in their joint statement on the Duggar family’s official blog

“As we continue our journey as a family and rebuild our lives, we are delighted to share with you that we are expecting a new baby boy later this year,” the couple concluded. “Beauty comes from ashes and we cannot wait to see and kiss the face of this sweet new boy!” Even though she’s not expecting now, who knows what the future holds!
