Jinger Duggar Pregnancy: Fans Demand an Announcement!

by at .  Updated at .

Just three months after getting married in Arkansas, 19-year-old Kendra Caldwell is pregnant with Joseph Duggar's baby.

Plenty of people are congratulating the couple, including fans and fellow Duggars ... yet Jinger is still on many fans' minds.

Seeing Jinger Duggar celebrate the good news has fans demanding to know when Jinger will make a pregnancy announcement of her own.

You certainly don't have to be a member of the Duggar fertility cult to face expectations that you'll get pregnant and have a baby soon.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have 19 children. 19.

They expect for all of their brood to follow in their parents' footsteps in naerly every respect, including having as many children as possible.

In other words, Jim Bob and Michelle are expecting literally hundreds of grandchildren ... but one of their kids is holding things up.

Jinger having been married for over a year makes her quite the exception, in fact, as Jill, Jessa, Joy and now Joseph all got going immediately.

Jinger and Jeremy: Expecting a Girl

Considering that the average fertile couple has to try for about a year to create a viable pregnancy, that's incredibly fast. 

Again, there are so possible reasons why Jinger is not pregnant by now, but she remains an unusual case in her family.

The Duggars, of course, were quick to give Joseph and Kendra's good news a very public shout-out. Jinger said:

"Congratulations, Joe and Kendra."

"We’re so excited for you guys."

Jeremy Vuolo added:

"We cannot wait to meet the little one. We’re so grateful to God for giving you a little baby so soon. We love you guys, and hope to see you soon."

When fans saw Jinger Duggar publicly congratulate her brother and her sister-in-law on their pregnancy, they had questions.

Namely: Why is 19-year-old Kendra Caldwell (and 20-year-old Joy) having a baby before 23-year-old Jinger Duggar?

Yes, 23 is a hit older than 19-20 percentage-wise, but the real world, those are both somewhat young ages for pregnancy.

Actually, with 19, you can lose the "somewhat."

Fans took to Facebook to offer their hopes, prayers, and encouragement that Jinger and Jeremy will become parents.

One fan wrote: "Praying for you Jinger. Hope you get pregnant soon. Your babies will be gorgeous too."

Another just assumed it's a matter of time for JinJer:

"When is Jinger going to announce she’s expecting?"

That second comment may be a reference to the commonly held belief that Jinger Duggar is already pregnant.

Of course, other fans were quick to remind people that Jinger and Jeremy may be taking their time.

Jinger Duggar wears pants (because Jeremy Vuolo allows it) and also listens to (gasp!) secular music.

It may be that she and Jeremy are using some form of birth control (very much prohibited by her parents) as well.

It's also possible that they're just ... not pregnant.

They've been married for, like, a year. They may just have bad timing, or one of them may struggle with fertility issues.

It happens.

The only thing that we know for sure is that fans pushing Jinger to get pregnant soon isn't going to do any good.

If she is trying to conceive and hasn't managed it yet, she's probably feeling bad enough without the pressure.

Even if she's not trying to conceive, she's likely very self-conscious about her every move thanks to the scrutiny.

Jinger has always followed her heart and lived her own life, so to speak. Let's continue to let her do so here.
