Congratulations may be in order for another member of the Duggar Family.

And condemnation may be in store for one of her loved ones.

Allow us to explain…

Abbie Burnett and John David Duggar got married in November of 2018.

That was seven months ago, which means the couple is WAY behind in terms of getting pregnant and planning what we presume will be a huge family…

… simply based on the pattern showed over the years by all of John David’s loved ones.

But might the time finally be here? Might Abbie finally be pregnant?

A relative may have actually spoiled the answer in unexpected and accidental fashion last week.

Several days ago, as you likely have read about by now, the Duggars lost matriarch Mary in a tragic drowning accident.

She was only 74 years old at the time and the unexpected passing led to a number of tributes from those who knew Mary well. Inlcuding Jessa Duggar.

Jim Bob’s beloved mother died just days after meeting Jessa and Ben Seewald’s latest baby, who just happened to be born on Grandma Mary’s birthday.

In part of the caption shew wrote as a shout-out to Mary, Jessa wrote the following:

"She was so excited about the many new great-grandbabies due this coming fall and winter, and it never got old for her."

Did you catch it?

The hint Jessa may have dropped about Abbie’s womb?

We’ll break it down for you:

Many Duggars are pregnant at the moment. Like, many, many, many Duggars.

But here’s the thing: Lauren (Swanson) Duggar, Kendra (Caldwell) Duggar, Anna Duggar, and Joy-Anna (Duggar) Forsyth are all due in November.

Moreover, their cousin Amy, is due in October.

Those due dates all land in autumn… yet Jessa said Mary had been excited to welcome her "great-grandbabies due this coming fall and winter."

Yes: And winter.

It sure sounds like someone else is expecting, doesn’t it?

We figure it has to be Abbie because she and John David are simply due for a pregnancy announcement.

Granted, they both waited a little while before tying the knot (John David is 28 and Abbie is 26), breaking from the Duggar tradtion of becoming a spouse by the age of, like, 20 and a parent of multiple kids by the age of, like 23.

“We are so excited to be married!" they told Us Weekly back in November, adding at the time:

"It was a beautiful moment and we so appreciate our friends and family for sharing this day with us. Most of all we are thankful to Christ for bringing us together."

"This is going to be an amazing journey!"

But will it include a newborn this December or next January or next February?

We’ll probably find out soon!
