Say what you will about the Duggars, when those folks set their mind to a task, they tend to see it through.
Of course, if you have the misfortune to be born a female Duggar, the only tasks you’re allowed to participate in are getting knocked up and praising Jesus.
Joy-Anna Duggar welcomed her first child, a boy named Gideon, back in February.
But fans are convinced the 20-year-old is already expecting a second bundle of joy.
As is always the case with this sort of thing, the speculation is based on very scant evidence.
In fact, as far as we can tell, a bunch of people jumped to this conclusion with nothing more than Joy’s latest Instagram pics to prompt them:
“I see a pregnancy announcement soon!! I have a feeling!” commented one follower
“Me too I see a baby bump,” remarked another.
Needless to say, it’s a lot of speculation based on very little proof.
It’s possible that Joy is engaging in some visual obstruction — but it seems far more likely that she’s simply holding a baby.
But some fans offered a different explanation for why Joy might be attempting to conceal her midsection.
“It takes a lot more than 6 months to lose baby weight,” one fan remarked.
“She had a huge baby bump because she had a 10 pound baby.”
Yes, little Gideon entered the world at a full 10 pounds.
The little fella captured the coveted title of the biggest Duggar baby to date.
And we probably don’t need to tell you he’s had a lot of competition for that title.
Being the number one anything in a group that size is impressive.
And the Duggars are not the type to hire nannies, so it’s not as though the new mom has had a ton of time to work out in recent months.
Joy has yet to respond to the rumors that she’s expecting, and this is one of those situations where fans are taking her silence as a tacit confirmation.
What seems more likely, however, is that she simply doesn’t take the time to respond to every single rumor about the state of her uterus.
After all, Duggar pregnancy rumors are like Trump tweets.
They pop up on social media every day, and at a certain point, you just have to ignore them.
