Guys, we’re down to just one pregnant Duggar couple, and we’re starting to panic that soon there will be no Dug babies on the way! It has always felt like no matter what, you could always ~count on~ (at least!) one Duggar couple being pregnant at a time, and last year started off strong with three couples expecting babies. But after two back-to-back births, we’re just months away from having no pregnant Duggars! Keep up with which Duggars are pregnant, could be pregnant soon, or recently gave birth, below!
Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald
“We are overjoyed that God has blessed us with a baby, due late this Spring!” a message from Jessa revealed on the Duggar family blog. “From the day we found out we were expecting, we both guessed boy, and if our predictions are right, then we already have a ton of clothing and accessories ready to pass down. At the same time, we would absolutely love if we found out we were having a girl — though we’ve joked that we’d be starting from square one and might have to learn a few things,” she concluded.
Ben, meanwhile, added, “Henry doesn’t have a clue what’s coming, but Spurgeon understands and he talks about the baby quite a bit. Seeing our boys meet their new sibling for the first time is something we are really looking forward to!” He continued, “We realize that, in going from two to three kids, we’re about to switch from man-to-man to zone coverage, so we’ve definitely been taking advice from friends who are already in this stage! We love being parents and are really looking forward to this new arrival!”
Aww. And TBH, props to them for keeping it a secret for so long!
Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth
Austin and Joy-Anna announced their pregnancy on Instagram very soon after their 2017 wedding, on Aug. 30. They shared the happy news with three photos and a caption that said Joy was “eating for two!”
“Austin and I are SO thankful to announce that we are parents!! Even before we were married we prayed that God would give us children and we are so blessed that he has given us this baby!” Joy wrote.
It didn’t take long for fans to speculate that Joy-Anna and Austin had sex before marriage, as their due date was literally nine months after the big day, but we’re sure they would never admit that. Regardless, they had a precious baby boy named Gideon on Feb. 23, 2018, at 3:39 pm. The big boy weighed ten pounds and three ounces, and his parents said, “We are blessed beyond measure with the arrival of our son, Gideon Martyn Forsyth. Looking at our child for the first time was such an incredible moment! God is so good, and we are so thankful.” While Joy-Anna planned a home birth, things went awry and she was forced to rush to the hospital. Luckily, little Gideon was born happy and healthy.
Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell
Joseph and wife Kendra revealed that they were expecting their first child in December 2017, just three months after getting married. “During this season that we are celebrating the birth of Christ, we are so excited to share with you that we are expecting the gift of a child ourselves!” the Counting On stars revealed. “Wow, it’s so exciting!!! We’ve both always loved children and seen them as a real blessing from God. It’s so surreal to think of being parents and having our own little one. We cannot wait to see this new baby!”
Well, the finally got to meet him on June 8! Little Garrett Duggar joined the family at 1:38 p.m., weighing in at seven pounds, eight ounces, and measuring in at 20-and-a-half inches long. “No matter how many times we’ve experienced the joy of babies born in our families, there’s nothing comparable to the joy in our hearts today! Children truly are a gift from God. We are so thankful for his safe arrival and this new journey as parents,” Joe and Kendra said in their statement.
Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo
Jinger and Jeremy announced that they were expecting their first child together in January, which was a long time coming because most Duggars get pregnant within months of their wedding. In fact, JinJer were married for over a year before getting knocked up!
“We are so happy to announce that we are having a little baby girl!” said the couple. “We could not be more excited and are eagerly anticipating meeting our little lady this summer.”
Felicity, aka “Lissy,” was born on July 19, the couple confirmed to Us Weekly. “God is so kind. Jinger gave birth to Felicity Nicole Vuolo this morning at 4:37 a.m.,” said Jeremy. “Felicity weighs eight pounds and three ounces, and is 19.5 inches long. Both mom and baby are healthy, doing great, and resting well. We are very thankful for her safe arrival and look forward to life as parents!”
Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard
Fans have been speculating that Jill and Derick could be expecting a lot lately. First, fans thought she looked like she had a baby bump in one photo, then they noticed that she was going out of her way to crop her tummy out of pictures. They already have two sons: Israel, who is four years old, and Samuel, who’s creeping up to his second birthday. It’s possible that the duo is just keeping the news quiet so as not to distract from the other babies, or perhaps it’s all just misplaced fan speculation.
Lauren Swanson and Josiah Duggar
Welp. Congrats to all the happy couples! We can’t wait to meet their little one(s).
