Jed and Katey Duggar announce pregnancy
Earlier this evening, Jed and Katey Duggar took to Instagram to announce they were expecting their first child together. Another Duggar baby was on the way. Katey was expected to give birth in Spring of 2022.
Turns out, the couple found out they were pregnant toward the middle of last week. They proceeded to tell the family they were pregnant on Friday during an outing to a baseball game.
Then, on Sunday afternoon, Jed and Katey Duggar took to Instagram to tell the world they were expecting their first child together.
Their pregnancy announcement came with a bit of humor woven into the caption. In the caption, Jed jested that Katey tested positive. He proceeded to explain he wasn’t referring to COVID-19. Turns out, she tested positive for something a little more exciting.
The thumbnail of the YouTube video announcing their pregnancy featured a photo of Jed and Katey standing with their pregnancy announcement sign. The sign read, “She tested positive but not for covid.”
Fans blast couple for disgusting pregnancy humor
Turns out, the humor involving COVID-19 mixed into the delivery of the pregnancy announcement was NOT well-received among Counting On fans. Many thought it was insensitive. Words such as “tacky” and “tasteless” were also used to describe the delivery of the pregnancy news.
One fan exclaimed on social media: “Not only is it tacky and insensitive, theyre acting like they’re 16. She does the pee test in a Walmart Bathroom stall??? And drops it on the floor? And then tells the nation that? How old are you??? And she said she’s got cramping? Another good reason NOT TO SAY ANYTHING YET!”
“Having 2 family members pass from COVID, I find this very tasteless and insensitive.” Another chimed in.
A third agreed: “I hate this. It’s so tacky and distasteful. People are dying.”
Overall, most fans agreed the pregnancy announcement humor was tone deaf. And, they couldn’t believe she decided to share taking a pregnancy test in a Walmart bathroom with the world.
