Duggar family news: Derick Dillard responds to Jill Duggar pregnancy rumors


Is another Duggar girl expecting a baby? Last month, Jessa Duggar and husband Ben Seewald announced that they are expecting their second child. But rumors claim that more than one Duggar daughter is expecting as it was rumored that Jill Duggar is also pregnant with her second child with Derick Dillard.

The rumor mill started churning after the season 1 finale of “Jill and Jessa: Counting On” aired on TLC. In the episode, Jill and Derick talked about being open to having a second child, and it was immediately speculated that Jill might be pregnant. Fans were expecting the couple to make a pregnancy announcement, but it was Jessa and Ben who broke their baby news last month.

Recently, Derick took to Twitter to address the pregnancy rumors. As a response to a fan who asked if Jill is pregnant again, Derick simply wrote, “not yet.” It appears that there is no truth to the rumors, despite some of the Duggar family’s followers insisting that the 25-year-old is expecting.

Some fans took to the family’s official Facebook page to point out that Jill appears to be hiding her pregnancy. On a recent photo featuring Jill and sisters Jessa, Jana, Joy-Anna, and Jinger, one commenter wrote, “Jill is pregnant. She’s hiding her belly behind Joy. Also Jill and Jessa have that same maternity top on, just a different color.”

However, another fan said that Jill wasn’t pregnant as she and Derek announced her pregnancy with Israel very early and that it’s possible that the couple wouldn’t do things differently with their second child.

Jill and Derick have been married since 2014 and are parents to 1-year-old Israel David. They are currently in the United States in the Duggar’s hometown in Arkansas as they take a short break from their missionary work in Central America. It is expected that the two will continue to stay in the country to film the rest of the second season of their TLC reality show before returning to their mission work.
