We’ve been assuming this was the case ever since the 20-year old exchanged vows with Justin Duggar in late February.
But now it looks to be all but official:
Just a few months after annoucning her courtship, and tying the knot, Claire Spivey may be pregnant with her first child.
How do we know?
Well, there’s a pretty legitimate reason to think there is indeed a tiny human being is growing inside of Spivey’s womb.
And it’s all thanks to a stranger on Instagram.
Oddly enough, this person may have crossed a major line this week and revealed the couple’s news to the masses.
Confused? Allow us to explain:
The rumor mill started churning in earnest a few days ago after Spivey commented on a photo of her sister-in-law, Joy-Anna Duggar Forsyth, cradling her gorgeous baby daughter Evy-Mae.
"Such a precious photo!!" Claire wrote.
Not long afterwards, someone left the following note in the same Comments section …
I know it’s not officially announced but I hope you are feeling super good.
Another individual castigated this secret-dropper – who even used a baby emoji in the comments – for spilling such personal tea on social media, and the exchange has since been deleted.
But it’s too late. The damage has been done.
People saw it, this is the Internet and nothing can ever be truly deleted.
The Duggar-Spivey pregnancy reveal is now out there for all to see.
And by all accounts, people are both ecstatic and not surprised!
"Claire’s pregnant," another Duggar fan wrote after viewing the above remark.
Someone else chimed in with the common sentiment: "Nobody is surprised."
If Spivey and Duggar really are expecting, this is an accurate reaction.
The newlyweds got married mere months after getting engaged, with Justin barely old enough to vote at the time.
Nearly everyone has since assumed that they got busy for the first time on their wedding night.
Sexually speaking, we mean. According to Derick Dillard, they all get married young so they can bone.
Whatever the case, the couple is absolutely smitten.
"As I look back on this day two years ago, I met this amazing guy! My world was forever changed," wrote Spivey as a caption to a photo of her and her young husband in April,
Spivey and Duggar got married on February 26 in Texas, following what seemed like a very short courtship.
The 19-year old first publically confirmed he was seeing his older, better half back in October 2020.
The two got engaged a month later.
Why wait when you know it’s true love and you really want to know what sex feels like, right?
"Today we have started a journey together that God crafted long before we ever knew it was meant to be," Duggar and Spivey stated after making their lifelong committment.
"We are so thankful for the love of Christ that has brought our lives together and teaches us what real love looks like."
"There is no greater joy than marrying your best friend," he said.
This may be true.
The couple may have strong feelings for each other.
But plenty of observers think Jim Bob Duggar arranged this union, tracking down the youngest bride he could for his 13th child so that the pair could crank out as mamy kids as possible.
After all, that is sort of totally what he does.
As for this new Instagram comment, combined with the baggy dress Claire recently donned for a family photo that got folks talking?
And the fact that she started following Michaela and Brandon Keilen’s online retail shot, Keilen Corner, which sells baby items?
The general takeaway at the moment is that Spivey is pregnant. And glowing with excitement, no doubt.
She’s seemingly just waiting (or she was waiting) for the right time to make the official announcement.
Stupid people on Instagram …
Earlier this spring, Justin and Claire opened up about life as newlyweds, and touched a bit on their future plans.
They shared that they decided to "settle down in Texas" near Claire’s hometown, where her parents still reside.
Spivey said in a joint appearance with Justin for a TLC video:
"We are super excited for this next chapter of our lives – just to not ever have to leave one another ever again."
"It’s been something that we’ve waited for."
Congratulations to the happy newlywed, and almost certainly expectant mother-to-be. They do seem so in love.
