JOY-ANNA Duggar kept her stomach hidden while attending a “Jesus” performance this week amidst heavy speculation that she could be pregnant with her third child.
Fans previously noted that she covered her “baby bump” in a recent family photo.
Joy-Anna, 23, visited the Sight and Sound Theatre in Branson Missouri on Tuesday with her friend Carlin Bates and their husbands.
The reality star posed outside the theatre after a showing of the play “Jesus” as she gushed over the performance.
The TV personality seemed to strategically dress in a baggy white top, loose black skirt, and heavy gray jacket as she snapped a photo with her husband and friends.
Joy-Anna captioned her post: “10/10 recommend seeing Sight and Sound Theatre’s show ‘Jesus’! What a powerful show. It beautifully displayed Jesus’s life and His love for us!🙏🏼🤍
“Annnddd so happy I was able to see it with @carlinbates98!” she closed.
BABY ON THE WAY?
The Counting On star sparked baby rumors earlier this week when she shared a sweet photo alongside her hubby Austin, 27, and two kids, Gideon, three, and Evelyn, one.
The young mother posed with her family outdoors while wearing a flowy purple sundress to conceal her tummy area.
The whole group smiled as they showed off their Sunday’s best.
Both father and son sported Chachi pants and button-down collared shirts, while the girls wore flowy dresses and brown shoes.
While many fans raced to the comments to praise the “beautiful family”, others speculated that Joy-Anna may be attempting to “hide a baby bump” with the placement of her daughter covering her belly.
After one fan commented on the post: “No 3?”, another replied in agreement, writing: “that was my first thought when I saw how she was holding the little one.”
The image also appeared on Reddit where a user captioned the post: “Tell me she’s not pregnant!” prompting a slew of responses.
One person remarked: “It’s the pose for me” while a second agreed: “My guess is she’ll announce early next year”
“Her face Is rounding up and she has started glasses again, I call pregnant. The posing of that little girl is suspicious,” another reasoned.
Although Joy-Anna has made no mention of a potential pregnancy, back in August she did surprise fans with a new family addition.
The 19 Kids & Counting alum debuted her newly adopted kitten with a photo of Gideon holding the pet and laughing while Evelyn giggled and looked on.
The Arkansas native captioned her post: “Sometimes the smallest things take the most room in your heart.”
Despite fans expressing hope for a third baby, Joy-Anna has faced backlash over the years for many over her parenting choices.
Earlier this month, the TLC star angered fans who believed she wasn’t spending enough time homeschooling her toddler son.
When explaining her daily routine to her followers she claimed she only spent “five minutes” a day teaching her son his alphabet and colors.
“I normally try and do like five minutes a day, doesn’t always happen but just like to get the numbers, the letters, the colors kind of ingrained in his head,” she explained.
“And I feel consistency works better than [studying] over long periods of time, every so often.”
However, fans were shocked by the statement as they slammed her for not dedicating more time to Gideon’s learning.
