The TLC star is soon to be a mother for the third time and is preparing for her baby. She recently posted a picture showing her baby bump on her Instagram page, leaving fans to argue over what gender the baby would be.


Jesse Duggar is heavily pregnant and will be due for delivery anytime soon. The expectant mother took to Instagram to show the world how much her baby bump has grown.


However, she wasn’t expecting the debate that followed her picture as many fans who commented all tried to guess the gender of the incoming baby.  Jesse’s caption for her post was a long one, in which she announced that #BabySeewald3, her expected baby would be 38 weeks.

She also expressed surprise at how her pregnancy flew so fast, attesting the phenomenon to the presence of her two other children. She ended her caption by appreciating the apps that helped her to keep in tune with her baby’s growth and development.


She made particular mention of the app, “Pregnancy,” which she really loved. Many commenters to her post congratulated her and wished her safe delivery; others also commended her for looking amazing even with her pregnancy.

However, the highlight of the comments belonged to the fans who took it upon themselves to decipher the incoming baby’s gender. Some fans believe the baby would be a girl as Jesse’s baby bump looked higher placed while some others believed it would be a boy.


Some fans, however, tried their luck by asking Jesse if she knew the baby’s gender.  Jesse and her husband, Seewald, are keeping the gender of their expected baby under wraps as a surprise.

She replied to a fan who asked if her two children, Spurgeon and Henry, three and two-years-old respectively knew the gender of their expected sibling. She explained that they didn’t know and that the baby’s gender was only known to her and Seewald, as they wanted to surprise family members and fans.

The reality TV star joins other expectant mothers of the Duggar family such as Anna Duggar, Joy-Anna Duggar, Kendra Caldwell and Lauren Duggar in what is already a long list. It is sure going to be a baby harvest in the Duggar Clan.

Fans would be wishing the 26-year-old a safe delivery when the day finally comes and will by then finally know the baby’s gender.
