For a while now, fans have been convinced that Anna Duggar has been hiding a pregnancy.
Her husband, Josh Duggar, is definitely not a favorite among Counting On viewers. He is one of the major reason’s the family’s initial show 19 Kids & Counting got canceled (that, and Michelle Duggar realized she should stop having kids).
But Anna and Josh might be preparing to welcome a 7th child into the world, even if Anna isn’t ready to share the news!
Anna previously sparked pregnancy rumors after posting a photo on Instagram about a child they sponsored.
“It was wonderful to finally meet Esther Faith this evening! Thanks to the kindness of many people (including many of you!), Esther was able to come to the U.S. for a life-saving heart surgery,” Anna captioned the photo. “Praising God for a successful outcome and praying for her continued recovery.”
So, what does this have to do with pregnant bellies? Well, both Anna and Jessa are in the photo, and everyone is posed in a very specific way. Anna’s daughters are standing very close to one another right in front of their mother, while Esther is standing right in front of Jessa.
Later, Anna shared a post for her youngest daughter’s first birthday.
“Little Maryella turned one last Friday! Can you believe it’s already been over a year since she arrived?!” Anna’s caption read. “Each day she gives us a thousand reasons to smile — we love you Maryella!”
It was in the comments of this post that Anna addressed the rumors that she was pregnant again.
“Are you expecting?” a fan asked.
“No,” Anna replied, rather abruptly.
Anna had previously discussed her future birthing plans earlier this month, so she did leave the door open for more children in her future.
“Are you giving birth all natural?” a fan asked on social media.
“So far! I keep saying, ‘Next time I’m getting an epidural!’” she replied.
She later updated her Instagram bio to drive home the fact that she only has six kids, but that wasn’t enough for fans to keep speculating about the eldest Duggar’s wife.
In a now-deleted Instagram video, fans think Anna Duggar’s pregnancy belly is making an appearance! In the shot, it appears a pregnant Anna is cutting a cake at a birthday party.
“Jessa Seewald might have accidentally exposed a family secret. She uploaded a video of Henry’s birthday party,” Katie Joy from @withoutacrystalball shared on Instagram. “Then she quickly unlisted it & at the very end – a very pregnant looking Anna Duggar is cutting ice cream cake. Jessa has never uploaded a video & then unlisted one before.”
She later shared a zoomed-in shot of Anna.
“I was able to slow down the video and zoom in on Anna Duggar,” she captioned the shots. “She looks like she’s 4-6 months pregnant.”
But fans thought she might be farther along than that!
