Did Anna Duggar Have A Sixth Baby?

Did Anna Duggar have another baby? The family had a big ugly Christmas sweater party recently and some fans noticed that the former star of 19 Kids and Counting was breastfeeding a baby...a mystery baby. Oh, the intrigue! Fans are now lighting up the Internet speculating on whether or not Josh Duggar's wife had another baby. That would make six kids for Anna and Josh if so. And if she didn't have another baby, why does Anna appear to be breastfeeding a baby in the photo in question? There are so many things we want to know!

1. The comments

The photo of Anna breastfeeding is from one of Jessa's ugly holiday sweater party. The photo is tucked behind at least one other photo but that didn't stop Duggar fans from spotting what they thought was a new addition to the enormous clan. The comments soon started pouring in. One asked, "Did Anna have another kid?" Another said, "Did Anna have another baby? Because in the second pic it looks like she is breastfeeding with. cover on." Take a look at the photo below. What do you think?

2. Anna commented on the pic

Anna popped into the comments at one point, but she didn't shed any light on the situation. She wrote "ate way too much Italian dinner, then dove into desserts that were part of a baking competition,” participated in a “white elephant gift exchange,” and then played “board games and a movie to bring the evening to an end." She didn't confirm or deny the rumors that she may have had a sixth child without letting her legion of fans know. 

3. One possible explanation

Anna and Josh's fifth child, Mason, is just over a year old, it could be him that Anna was breastfeeding. After all, back in August, Anna opened up about Mason's food allergies and how hard it was to identify the fact that he had a dairy allergy. She had to cut a bunch of food out of her diet to figure it out. So continuing to breastfeed him may be something she is still actively engaged in either for the bonding experience or as a good way to get nutrition to Mason, or both!

4. Not the first time...

This isn't the first time the rumor of baby number six for Anna and Josh made the rounds. Back in November, fans speculated Anna was sporting a baby bump in photos from John-David's wedding. Fans also thought Anna was pregnant again in September. She addressed those comments, saying, "I’m not expecting…only overdue for a diet.”

5. The verdict...

We're not experts, even though we sometimes like to think we are but given the September denial of a pregnancy and Mason's age and allergies, it is safe to conclude that Anna Duggar has not had a sixth baby, yet. The mystery baby she was breastfeeding at the ugly Christmas sweater party was Mason.
