Counting on spoilers and updates reveals anyone who knows the Duggar clan or has been keeping up with their TLC show will know that Claire Spivey and Justin Duggar just wed two months ago. And while the newlyweds are only 20 and 19 respectively, it wouldn’t be a surprise if they’re already expecting a baby since it’s probably a Duggar tradition to breed as many children as possible, as fast as possible. Due to the Duggars’ traditional Christian values, they don’t welcome sex before marriage and for the family, procreation is a blessing.
Jill Duggar recently opened up about receiving numerous pressures from her parents to procreate. But aside from the reputation of this strictly religious family, what makes the show’s fans think that Claire is pregnant?
Reasons why Fans are Speculating that Claire Spivey and Justin Duggar Could be Expecting a Little Bundle of Joy Soon
While the couple haven’t really opened up to fans about any pregnancy news, which is something that fans totally understand, a Reddit user pointed out that Spivey recently started following Michaela and Brandon Keilen’s online retail shop, Keilen Corner.
Michaela is a member of the Bates family (another huge family with a reality TV show of their own, in case you’re wondering), which means she’s close to the Duggars, and the suspicious part is that the store is geared towards baby items.
But you’re probably thinking that she may be researching ahead, as many first-time moms usually do, but then there’s the question of the family’s recent photoshoot.
If you look at the picture, you won’t see a baby bump, but fans are sure that Claire knowingly chose the flowing dress to hide her baby bump. This is still an unconfirmed rumor for now, but it wouldn’t really come as a surprise to fans, as the Duggars main mission in life is to have as many children as possible. Not that anyone can blame them; children do bring lots of joy.
What Life is Like for the Newlyweds
“As I look back on this day two years ago, I met this amazing guy! My world was forever changed,” Claire wrote in the caption of a picture of her and her young husband, which she shared in late April.
Claire and Justin got married on February 26 in Texas, after courting each other for a while. “Today we have started a journey together that God crafted long before we ever knew it was meant to be,” the couple said at the time.
“We are so thankful for the love of Christ that has brought our lives together and teaches us what real love looks like. There is no greater joy than marrying your best friend,” they added.
As for how the newlyweds are settling down, they shared that they’ve decided “to settle down in Texas” near Claire’s hometown, where her parents still live.
“We are super excited for this next chapter of our lives — just to not ever have to leave one another ever again,” Claire said in a joint appearance with Justin during a TLC video. “It’s been something that we’ve waited for.”
The couple admitted that they’re still learning about each other day by day in the interview, as they’ve only known each other for a little more than two years.
“Something new that I’ve learned about Claire is that she can’t go in the mornings without a cup of hot tea,” Justin shared. “She always has to have her hot earl grey tea and done a certain way, which I’m figuring out. But I think it’s cute.”
