Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald: Breaking the Mold ... in Home Full of Mold

by at .  Updated at .

The Duggar family is known for its frugality almost as much as for its conservative political and religious beliefs, but this is taking the former to a new level.

If you watch 19 Kids and Counting online, you saw parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar gift daughter Jessa a house on last Tuesday's season premiere.

Call it a "fixer-upper." Times 10.


Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald are now living in a starter home that once belonged to her Grandma Duggar, and then later by Josh and Anna Duggar.

That home isn't just a little rough around the edges. It's full of mold and falling into disrepair, which the couple laughed off ... but should we be worried?

Rumors are swirling that Jessa is secretly on a birth control, which could explain why she's not pregnant yet (after a whole five months of marriage).

Long-term exposure to mold could lead to many symptoms, including headaches, nausea, fatigue, weight loss, muscle pains and respiratory problems.

“If the mother becomes ill or succumbs to any of the above, that would certainly compromise the health of the unborn child,” one doctor tells Radar.

“Pregnancy may potentially increase the likelihood of any of the above,” says the expert, but don't expect the 22-year-old to get pregnant anytime soon.

Call it a hunch. She recently told People that she and husband Ben Seewald, “hope to adopt a lot of kids," something that breaks the Duggar mold.

Jessa even went on to make a point of saying that "even "if God blesses us with biological kids of our own, it’s not going to quench our desire to adopt.”

Sounds like the pitter patter of little feet is not far off for the newlyweds, even if they chart their own course and become the first Duggars to adopt.

Here's hoping the couple - which has a reputation for breaking the mold in the figurative sense - finds a way to break down all the spores beforehand.

Not good for the kiddos. Gotta take care of that ASAP, y'all. They just need to call Jana Duggar to come over and scrub down the place for 8-9 hours.

She's got nothing better to do, right?
