Jessa Duggar sparked rumors that she’s in labor after her mother-in-law Guinn came round to watch her three kids.

Michelle filmed herself and Guinn cooking pizza for Jessa and Ben’s three kids – Spurgeon, five, Henry, four and Ivy, two.
She captioned a video of them in the kitchen: “These kiddos love their pizza.”
Michelle also took a photo of them on the couch in matching floral shirts and wrote: “Hawaiian shirts for the win.”
Jessa’s fans flocked to Reddit to air their theories that the reality star might be pregnant – especially given that Ben’s family have visited to look after their kids with Jessa’s previous births.
One posted: “Jessa possibly in labor?”
Another commented: “It makes sense, as Ben’s mother tends to only come into their neck of the woods when Jessa has had the baby.”
A third agreed: “From Jessa’s previous birth specials, Ben’s family (usually his mom) come into town to take the kids / watch the kids, as they live about 3/4 hours away.”
Jessa and Ben, 26, announced their pregnancy in February, after suffering a devastating miscarriage in 2020.
She revealed last month that she will give birth in a hospital for her fourth child after having three home births due to health fears.
The TV star said: “Ben and I talked this over a lot and we decided we are going to do a hospital birth this time.
“So that’ll be different. I’ve had three great home births, no complications with the birth itself, but I have had postpartum hemorrhage two times, with my first and my third.
“For that reason, we are choosing to do hospital birth so we won’t have to deal with the transport if I end up needing Pitocin.”
Jessa explained she wanted to use a midwife, but Arkansas bans them administering Pitocin at a home birth.
CONTROVERSIAL HOSPITAL BIRTH
Choosing to have a hospital birth is a controversial decision for the Counting On star who was raised in a very conservative Christian home by parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.
They are not supportive of certain modern practices such as hospital births.
Most of the women in the family have opted for a home birth, unless a medical complication has dictated otherwise.
Late last month, Jessa gave fans an update on her pregnancy, revealing she has gone into “nesting mode” in her third trimester.
“Third trimester definitely has me in nesting mode getting every last thing in order for the new arrival!” The TLC wrote alongside a photo of her lying in bed with her children.
News that she may be in labor comes after months of turmoil for her family after her older brother Josh was arrested on child porn charges in April.
He pleaded not guilty after being charged with two counts of receiving and possessing child porn.
Jessa and Ben condemned Josh in a statement at the time, saying they are “saddened” to hear of the charges and hope the “truth will be exposed”.
Josh’s arrest led to the Duggars’ family show Counting On getting canceled after almost six years on air.
