The Duggar family always has some kind of news to share. Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar had 19 kids, and now they are watching those children grow up and start their own families. This year, six Duggars announced pregnancies (although Joy and Austin unfortunately lost their baby at 20 weeks). With five babies that will be born within a year, we can’t help but ask ourselves: who will be the next Duggar to announce the pregnancy?
The Duggar family was filled with pregnancy announcements this year
2019 has proven to be a great year for the Duggars. In January, Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald announced that they were expecting their third child in the spring. The couple welcomed a daughter, Ivy Jane, at the end of May. But after Jessa’s announcement, several more Duggars told the world that they were also waiting. Anna, who is married to Josh, announced her sixth pregnancy and wins this fall. Lauren, who is married to Josiah, announced her first pregnancy after her miscarriage last year and welcomed her daughter in early November. Kendra, who is married to Joe, also received a girl in early November. Abbie, who is married to John, will have her baby in January. And Joy Duggar and Austin Forsyth also announced a pregnancy earlier this year, but lost their baby at 20 weeks.
The Duggars tend to have children one after another
When it comes to having children, Duggars don’t waste time. They tend to start trying to have a baby as soon as they get married and often announce pregnancies within the year. And when they welcome children, they usually don’t stop after one. Jessa has welcomed three children in five years, and Kendra has just had her second baby in less than two years. Joy’s miscarriage occurred less than two years after having her first child as well. The only member of the Duggar family who has not had several children in several years is Jinger Duggar.
All eyes are on Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo
Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo have been married for more than three years, but they only had one child. Many Count On On fans have avoided a second pregnancy for so long. But now that they have just celebrated their third anniversary, all eyes are on them. In a recent episode of Counting On, Jinger hinted that she and Jeremy could have more children while in California. Although he insisted that he was not making a pregnancy announcement, he said it is possible. And since many of his brothers simply welcomed the babies, they may not make their own announcements for a while.
It’s possible Joy and Austin will make another announcement
Joy went through a lot when she lost her baby earlier this year, and the two have needed some time to recover from the tragic event. But they probably still want a large family, and they could also make another announcement soon. Fans would not be surprised if they announced another pregnancy by the end of this year, as they were eager to expand from one child to two. Of course, another Duggar might surprise us, although it seems that Joy or Jinger will be next.
