AceShowbiz - Many are rejoicing when they hear rumors that %cJessa Duggar% is expecting her third child with husband Ben Seewald, but it turns out to be not true. A spokesperson for the Duggar family tells E! News that Jessa is not pregnant.
Rumors of her pregnancy first sparked earlier this year, when fans noticed Ben seemingly cradling the 25-year-old TV personality's stomach in a family picture that was posted on Facebook. Fans were more convinced that she was pregnant as Jessa was seen donning a loose-fitting dress in the picture.
"So when will Jessa be making her announcement too? She totally looks preggers too," a fan wrote at the time. "Jessa looks pregnant, and her husband is touching her belly," another commented, while one other said, "Waiting for Jessa's announcement!"
Adding fuel to the rumors, InTouch Weekly reported that the "Counting On" star was four months pregnant. "Jessa is definitely pregnant and will be making an announcement in April," a source told the webloid.
According to the so-called source, Jessa and Ben "have been keeping the news under wraps, partly because it was in the early stages and also because she did not want to take away from the news that her brother Josiah [Josiah Duggar] and Lauren [Lauren Swanson] are getting married."
While the rumors are eventually not true, the couple did reveal that they wanted to expand their family. "It will be a little while since we just had a baby, but adopting and fostering to adopt is very much in our hearts," Jessa told PEOPLE, before adding that they also planned to expand their home for future children. "We just need a little more space. We're always checking the market!"
Jessa and Ben tied the knot in November 2014 after being engaged for two months. They share two sons together, Spurgeon Elliot Seewald and Henry Wilberforce Seewald.
