Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald’s pregnancy announcement is causing a lot of stir in the media. The reality television couple is expecting their second child, while there’s speculation that Jill Duggar might be jealous over the news that her sister is pregnant.
Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald second pregnancy means that the couple is on their way to becoming just like ’19 Kids & Couple’ stars Michelle Duggar and Jim Bob Duggar. Jessa Duggar has hinted that she would like a large family just like the one she grew up in. With her son Spurgeon Seewald only being 9 months old, Jessa Duggar is clearly on her way to becoming just like her mother Michelle Duggar with back-to-back pregnancies.
This of course leaves fans wondering if Jill Duggar’s pregnancy plans might have been deterred because of her current living situation. Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard have been living in Central America as part of their missionary work for well over a year now.
And while their son Israel David Duggar has already turned one, Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard are yet to get pregnant with their second child. This is mostly because of Jill Duggar’s Zika fears, as the virus has rapidly spread throughout Central and South America these last few months.
According to Us Weekly, Jill Duggar has even hinted that she has put her pregnancy plans on hold, as she thinks her sister Jinger Duggar will get pregnant before her. Of course, Jinger Duggar and her fiancé Jeremy Vuolo aren’t even married yet, which means that Jill Duggar is taking no chances with her health or a dangerous pregnancy for that matter either.
Of course, with that in mind it doesn’t look like Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard will be leaving their missionary work in Central America anytime soon. As much as Jill Duggar wants to have a baby, it looks like Derick Dillard has put his missionary plans ahead of the couple’s family plans whether his wife likes it or not.
As much as she would love to have another baby, Jill Duggar’s only option is to see her sisters get pregnant while she sits around and waits or worse, see her marriage take a turn for the worst because of her and her husband’s opposing views.
