It’s been a busy week for the Duggar clan.

As a matter of fact, it may have been the busiest week of the busiest year in the family’s recent history.

UPDATE, ROUND 2: So Much Baby News!

The biggest development, of course, was the arrival of Amy Duggar’s first child.

We probably don’t need to tell you that procreation is a very big deal in the Duggars’ world.

In fact, from a young age, girls in the family are taught that it’s their primary reason for being.

So you might imagine that all of Amy’s famous cousins would be on hand for the arrival of her first child.

Or at the very least, that they would congratulate her on becoming a mother.

Amy Duggar Gives Birth

But thus far, neither of those things has happened.

Granted, the Duggars have a good excuse for missing the birth, as most of the family is currently visiting Jinger Duggar in Los Angeles for the first time.

But why have they been so reluctant to reach out to Amy via social media?

Some fans are convinced that the answer can be found in this photo:

Jill and Dax

As you can see, Jill Duggar stopped by the hospital to visit Amy and her new first cousin once removed, Dax.

"Welcome to the world Daxton Ryan King," she captioned the photo, which was posted to her Instagram page on Thursday.

"So excited for y’all! Thanks for letting me pop in earlier and snatch some baby snuggles!"

She added the hashtags "hesakeeper," "myadorablebabycousin" and "babyking."

Amy Duggar Is Pregnant

It all seems very innocent and wholesome, and perhaps it is.

But many fans believe Jill is on the outs with her family, and this is her way of subtly sticking it to them in a public forum.

Along with Joy-Anna, Jill is the only member of the immediate Duggar family who didn’t make the trip to LA.

She’s also rumored to be on the outs with her parents.

Jill Duggar Got Her Hair Done

For months now, we’ve been hearing reports that Jill’s husband, Derick Dillard, is feuding with Jim Bob and Michelle.

And since Jim Bob never really got along with Amy, this pic could be emblematic of a new anti-Jim Bob alliance!

Or it could just be a photo of Jill meeting her cousin’s baby for the first time.

Tough to say.

But we’re guessing Duggar conspiracy theorists (of which there are many) will favor the more scandalous interpretation, as always.
