The Duggar family has found it relatively easy to shake off its critics, who have been angered by the family's conservative stance on homosexuality and sexual ethics; their show '19 Kids and Counting' has garnered record ratings levels with the recent Jill and Derick wedding episode, and now the show is gathering more attention with rumors circulating that newly wed Jessa Seewald is pregnant.
Over recent months, gay activists have tried to get the family's show cancelled after they deleted images of gay couples kissing that people had posted on their show's Facebook page.
However, despite continued efforts from the activists to spark controversy around the family, the Duggars' supporters have rallied around them and shown their support by maxing out the show's ratings, as well as starting a petition online to counter one from gay activists looking to get '19 Kids and Counting' cancelled.
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have remain positive throughout the furore, and have even said that the efforts to sideline them as radicals has actually helped them.
Now it looks like the family could be moving on even further from the ruckus with rumors circulating that newly wed Jessa Seewald is already an expecting mother.
According to Daily Mail, Jessa might already be pregnant. This is also what In Touch Weekly has reported. However, the latter report cited an insider who spoke about why Jessa could be pregnant this early.
"They look at sex as a 'present' from God and they couldn't wait to 'open it' on their wedding day. I wouldn't be surprised if Jessa were pregnant already," the insider said.
If Jessa is pregnant already it will not come as a massive surprise to most of their fans, who saw how Jill announced that she was pregnant just two months after her wedding day.
