According to a very reliable source, Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard may have found the ultimate way to get back at the former's father.
That reliable source is Dillard himself.
And that ultimate act of revenge? It's something we never could have seen coming.
Seriously, prepare to be shocked, Duggar Nation followers.
Why? Because Dillard was a guest this week on the “First Class Fatherhood” podcast.
When the host asked if he and his semi-famous wife were planning on “going for [a] girl” - after having two sons, Samuel and Israel - or if they’re happy as a family of four, Dillard did not respond as we expected.
He said the couple is “not definite” one way or another.
Not about whether he wants a girl. That'd be great. But he's hinting that they may be done having children. Forever.
“We’ll see,” he said. “We’re just kind of enjoying life.”
Typically, of course, such a statement would raise nary an eyebrow around the Internet.
Many couple have just two kids and live happily ever after in this arrangement, with no consideration given to another child and no questions about it from friends or strangers.
But not many couple are part of a family such as the Duggars, whose patriarch basically believes that women have only been placed on this planet in order to procreate.
And who, of course, has 19 kids of his own.
As for why the timing of Dillard's statement is also of note?
He's been feuding with Jim Bob Duggar for several months, saying on multiple occasions that his father-in-law controls the entire family and has straight up stolen money from his sons and daughters.
Derick, of course, is married to one of these daughters.
If Jill - who has allegedly been cut off by her awful dad - and Derick wanted to have the final word in this ongoing argument with Jim Bob, this is the most potent trump card they could use, isn't it?
Sorry, pops. No more grandkids from us! Live with that, you misogynic cult leader!
As you can see below, Jill has also rocked leggings on occasion, clearly taking a passive aggressive shot at her father by doing so.
But, again, nothing could compete with closing up her baby shop for good... if Jill is really trying to hurt her parents.
To be fair, Derick and Jill hinted in the past that two kids were plenty.
In October 2019, for example, the mom shared an exhausted rant on Instagram, seemingly revealing she was overwhelmed running after her young sons. She told fans:
“Y’all … This is me frustrated."
The 28-year-old continued:
"[My son] is screaming at me because he wants a game. I just told them to go lay down or go outside until mommy can cool down and handle this situation."
“This is life with just two kids.”
Dillard has also made it clear that, as opposed to basically every other Duggar, he doesn't just go around and pound his wife raw.
“We never said we don’t believe in birth control,” he told a fan who asked in August 2019, adding:
“My parents waited 11 years to start having kids."
"There’s nothing wrong with that," Dillard, 31, made clear.
"Each Christian family should follow God’s leading for their own family, regarding when and how many kids to have.”
Sounds logical to us.
But likely sounds sacrilegious to Jim Bob.
