Jill Duggar: Pregnant With Second Child?!

Brace yourselves, Duggar fans, because yet another new addition to TV's fastest growing family may be on the way.

Jill Duggar Gets Her Nails Painted

Yes, thanks to the pic above, Jill Duggar's Instagram followers are already congratulating the 24-year-old on the big news.

Of her second pregnancy, that is.

Not that she announced it or anything. You might think that's just a photo of Jill having her toenails painted by her husband, Derick Dillard.

Well... you would be right, but numerous Duggar obsessives have pointed out that Jill posted a similar photo at a similar point in 2014.

Just before she announced that she was pregnant with baby Israel, the Dillards shared a picture that leads many to believe this is an encore.

Of course, like everything the Duggars - even the once-harmless Jill and Derick - do these days, the announcement is steeped in controversy.

Jill and Derick have been performing missionary work in El Salvador and Guatemala, and it's been rumored that they may have cut their trip short due to the Zika virus

Many fans believe that Jill and Derick have permanently returned to Arkansas, but even if that's the case, we know that they were in Central America as recently as a few weeks ago.

That would put them at serious risk for the mosquito-borne illness that primarily affects the unborn children of pregnant women who become infected.

The risk of birth defects is so great from the Zika virus that women in affected countries have been encouraged not to conceive children.

Moreover, it was even rumored that Jill and Jessa were both on birth control as a result - and you know that's shocking for Duggars.

We're sure Jill and Derick had the good sense to get tested, but doctors are unsure about how long it might take the virus to show up in a patient's blood.

In other words, getting pregnant so soon after spending time in a primary Zika danger zone would be incredibly risky.

Of course, at this point, this is all speculation.

Take a moment to consider that concerns about the 24-year-old being pregnant are based on a single photo of her foot.

Perhaps we should all take heed of that reality check and just wait for an official confirmation before we start fretting.
