It’s hard to keep track of which Duggars are pregnant, we get it. But are there actually even more Duggar kids expecting new babies than we know? Jessa Duggar’s tribute to her Grandma Mary Duggar, who sadly passed away on June 9, may hint that even more Grand-Duggars are on the way.
Jessa, 26, shared a very touching tribute to her grandmother via Instagram on June 11. “It didn’t matter who you were, she was ‘Grandma’ to you,” the Counting On star began the post. “That’s most often how she would introduce herself. ‘Hi, I’m Grandma!’ Everybody called her Grandma.” The entire message is really worth reading, but one sentence in the memorial post caught our eye.
Further down in the caption, Jessa wrote, “She was so excited about the many new great-grandbabies due this coming fall and winter, and it never got old for her.” However, as far as Duggar followers know, the only great-grandchildren Mary was awaiting before her tragic passing were due in the fall. So, is someone else waiting to make a pregnancy announcement?

It didn’t matter who you were, she was “Grandma” to you. That’s most often how she would introduce herself. “Hi, I’m Grandma!” Everybody called her Grandma. She took a genuine interest in people. She would converse with you in a way that made you feel special and loved and cared about. She had a knack for remembering details, and the next time she saw you, she would inquire about things told to her in past conversations. She was so excited about the many new great-grandbabies due this coming fall and winter, and it never got old for her. She welcomed each new baby with joy and would hold them with such tenderness and delight. We will keep her stories and memories alive for these little ones, but we’re sad that they will not have the blessing of knowing her in person as we have. She was always available. When we kids were young, she would often babysit so Mom and Dad could go out on a date. If Mom needed something from the grocery store, she was happy to pick it up. She always had time for a conversation with the teenager and never passed over the toddlers either. Each one of us was made to feel valued and loved by Grandma. She was our biggest cheerleader, coming to every music recital, birthday party, and graduation celebration— and with 21 grandkids and 13 great-grandkids, that was quite a feat! She was an exhorter. If we ever doubted our gifts or abilities, Grandma was there to spur us on. She’d pull the classic “grandma move” and have us putting on impromptu talent shows for complete strangers. “Why don’t you get up here and perform that song you’ve been working on?” “Aww, Grandma, really? Do I have to?” We’d say, glancing at mom, but we knew Mom would back her every time. We’d reluctantly get up and do a number, and it didn’t matter how terrible we thought we sounded, Grandma would beam with pride and start the applause. She believed in our gifts and abilities more than we did at times, and she spurred us on to do our best and to give God the glory for all our talents and achievements.

Let’s break it down. Josh and Anna Duggar revealed to Us Weekly on April 26 that they are expecting their sixth child. Anna, 30, later told a fan in the comments of an Instagram post that her due date is the last of the ladies’. “OK here is my guesstimate LOL,” the follower wrote. “Jessa, Joy-Anna, Lauren, Kendra, Anna is the delivery timeline … LOL feel free to correct me I’d love to know 🌸😍👏.” Anna responded, “Kendra, Joy, Lauren and I’m due last,” she said. (Jessa already welcomed her baby — a girl named Ivy Jane.)
In their statement to Us Weekly, Josh and Anna noted, “We couldn’t be happier to share with the world that our family is growing by one this Fall.” So if they are the last on the list, who’s having a baby after autumn? It could be Jill Duggar and her husband, Derick Dillard. John-David Duggar and Abbie Grace Burnett could also be expecting their first child as well — they haven’t posted any new photos to Instagram in weeks.
There’s always the possibility that Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo are welcoming a little sibling for Felicity — in fact, some fans questioned whether Jinger is pregnant on a recent photo her husband shared to Instagram. “Is Jinger pregnant?” someone commented, to which someone else replied, “Full face, I believe so.” (Rude, but OK.)
This is all speculation, of course. And there’s a chance that Jessa was just referring to the expecting Duggars that we currently know about. But when it comes to this family and pregnancy announcements, you just never know who’s going to be next.
