The internet doesn’t have the greatest track record when it comes to speculating about celebrity pregnancies.
That’s because every time a famous women is spotted wearing baggy clothing or sipping water instead of wine at a restaurant, everyone assumes (usually incorrectly) that she must be knocked up.
But when folks on social media think a Duggar woman is pregnant – well, that’s a different story.
That’s because Duggar women get pregnant like it’s their job, which we guess, in a sense, it is.
The latest to find herself at the center of rumors is Jessa Duggar.
You might be thinking to yourself, Hey, didn’t Jessa just welcome her third child in May of 2019? Wouldn’t she sort of be rushing things if she’s already far enough along that she has to hide her bump?
The answer to both questions is yes — but despite those facts, rumors about Jessa being pregnant have been circulating for months now,
And it’s entirely possible that she’s got a fourth on the way.
Now, this pic has brought fan speculation to a fever pitch.
"Jessa is definitely pregnant and hiding it," one follower commented, as reported by the Daily Mail.
"Is Jessa pregnant? Interesting placement of the wreath," another asked.
"Is Jessa pregnant again, cause she has a wreath around her stomach?" a third chimed in.
Others pointed out another interesting aspect of the photo — Jill Duggar was apparently not in attendance at what appeared to be an annual wreath-making party.
It’s not terribly surprising, as Jill has been estranged from her parents for quite some time now, but fans enjoy pointing it out whenever they’re confronted with new evidence that the situation is still fraught.
"Such a shame that all the sisters couldn’t be there," one commenter wrote.
"Very sad that you guys never include her," another observed.
"I’m hoping it’s because Jill is aware there’s a freaking PANDEMIC going on, unlike the rest of them," a third remarked.
Yes, the Duggars were also dinged for hosting a large gathering without any regard for proper social-distancing protocol.
"Coronavirus likes this," one person commented.
"That’s people from 8 households right there," another wrote.
"I give up with these people. No one cares about masking, social distancing or being safe," said a third.
"I have a baby a week younger than Joy’s who hasn’t even met my family because the cases in our state are off the charts … Must be nice to be so self centered and be able to continue life as usual."
One would think that even if the Duggars have no interest in masks or social distancing, they would at least not be so callous as to flaunt their lack of concern, knowing how many people are suffering.
Speaking of public relations, one fan had an interesting theory about the placement of Jessa’s wreath.
"She isn’t pregnant but put the wreath there for speculation to get clickbait and to drive their numbers up," this person wrote.
That really wouldn’t be in keeping with Jessa’s character — but if there’s any truth to the rumors about Jill and Jessa launching their own reality show, who knows?
Maybe Jessa decided to use the occasion to rack up some free publicity!
