19 Kids and Counting might be off the air, but that hasn’t stopped Jessa Duggar from posting regular updates about her pregnancy. But her recent picture is getting a surprising reaction.
On Thursday, Jessa posted a picture of herself and husband Ben Seewald taking a trip on the Staten Island Ferry. And she’s wearing a fitted green top — something that many fans have pointed out. She captioned the snap, “Lol! …that point in your pregnancy where your belly button is acting like a pop-up turkey timer! Almost there! 11 weeks 3 days left! -w/@ben_seewald”
But fans have called her out for her choice of pregnancy clothing, claiming it’s a little too tight given the family’s strict rules.
“Cute top!! But wouldn’t mama duggar be upset with the tightness? You can see the shape of your body, nice BTW,” one fan wrote. Others agreed, with comments including, “I bet Jim Bob hates this picture! Go Jessa!,” and “Isn’t that fitted clothing considered ‘not quite modest’…not that I actually care, I just think it’s a wee bit hypocritical.”
But there are also fans who have come to Jessa’s defense, explaining that at this stage of her pregnancy clothing is bound to fit snug.
“Well at this point of the pregnancy everything fits tight. Besides, the Duggar girls are kind of busty, but while they are living at home they try to conceal all their curves as much as possible. I honestly think Ben doesn’t care how his wife dresses,” the fan explained.
