Naturally, that made fans speculate as to why this time, Jim Bob and Michelle remained silent.

Counting On Alum Jill Dillard Announced Her Pregnancy In March

The news that Derick and Jill expect a third child came back in March via Instagram. Additionally, Jill also shared the news on the Dillard Family Blog. At the time, they couldn’t reveal the gender of the new child. Later, the news emerged that the whole family landed up sick with the coronavirus. So, fans heard why the delay came along. Fortunately, the whole family seems to have recovered now. Naturally, fans feared for the baby at the time.

On March 23, the Counting On alum announced that they found out the gender of their baby and they expect another boy. Mind you, don’t expect to see many photos of the little one when he arrives. These days, fans noticed that apart from the gender reveal photos, Jill hides the face of her children. That started after the trial of Josh Duggar in December.

Counting On fans took to the comments section to discuss why the Duggar family might have ignored Jill’s third baby. Here is a small sample of what they think might be behind it:

Jim bob knows it’s just a matter of time before Jill writes a book and exposes him.

I think that they respected her by not announcing something that it wasn’t their place to announce.

I have a feeling Jill and Derrick might have asked that they not share any updates about their family.

They have shunned her….

If they didn’t care what her brother was doing to her they certainly wouldn’t care about a positive in her life.

They would be accused of using Jill as deflection from the Josh debacle if they posted anything.

As you can see, Counting On fans seem divided about why the Duggar family might not have announced the pregnancy of Jill Dillard. What are your thoughts?
