Kendra Caldwell Duggar and Joe Duggar have been married for three months, and in Duggar world, that means it is high time to announce a pregnancy.
All of the Duggar children thus far have announced that they are expecting almost three months exactly after their wedding date, making it known to the world that they conceived on their honeymoon.
For those not familiar with the Duggar family, they are an incredibly conservative family with a TV show on TLC. While the show’s future hangs in the balance, thanks to Derick Dillard, one of the older daughter’s husbands, that hasn’t stopped fans from wondering what’s going on with the family.
The family is famous for their strict “courting rules,” which don’t allow those who are dating to kiss, hug from the front or really do much of anything. Oh yeah, and they aren’t allowed to be alone in any capacity, instead having a chaperone with them at all times to ensure that nothing nefarious goes on. Chaperones, however, is kind of a loose description since they can be their 8-year-old siblings.
Because of these strict rules, and the family’s obsession with reproduction (Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar have 19 kids), almost all of the kids announce they are expecting just three months after their wedding date. The only exception thus far has been Jinger Duggar Vuolo, the “rebel” child, who some suspect is using birth control with her husband, Jeremy Vuolo. Birth control is also frowned upon within the Duggar compound.
Kendra Caldwell Duggar and Joe Duggar recently released a photo with her family that placed Kendra’s body behind one of her siblings, which is kind of weird to begin with, but this, of course, started the flood of pregnancy rumors.
Time will only tell if the newest Duggar newlyweds will have any news to share, but undoubtedly, if they do, they won’t be keeping it a secret for too long.
