Rumors of Jill Duggar being pregnant with her second child are back in rage. Reportedly, she and her husband, plus their first born Israel are back in Arkansas because the zika virus spreading in Central America makes a pregnant Jill at great risk.

According to the Inquisitr, Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard have cut their missionary work in Central America short because of the zika virus. The report went on to say that if true, this could only mean one thing - Jill is pregnant and is afraid of being infected by the virus and make their incoming baby at-risk of microcephaly. 

Governments of the affected countries have released statements asking women who are currently pregnant as well as those planning to be pregnant, to be more careful and prudent with their actions. "We'd like to suggest to all the women of fertile age that they take steps to plan their pregnancies, and avoid getting pregnant between this year and next," said El Salvador's Deputy Health Minister Eduardo Espinoza released in a statement via The Washington Post.

Fashion and Style also reported that the Instagram posts of Jill recently hinted that she is indeed pregnant. One of the recent posts showed her husband painting her toenails. While it was an innocent picture of how sweet her husband is, followers were quick to speculate that she is pregnant and hiding her baby bump. Some fans even left congratulatory notes already.

According to the excited fans, the last time Jill posted a similar photo was back in 2014, right before she shared to the public that she was pregnant with Israel. Fashion & Style added that since Israel is already nine months old, it will not be too farfetched for Jill to be pregnant with her second baby already. Her family is known for observing conservative values, including that of women's main role as mothers and the immorality of practicing birth control. 

Some fans though wondered if Jill is particularly keeping the second baby a secret first up until the alleged new show of the family is announced. Inquisitr claims that Jill might announce her pregnancy at a specific time to help boost the ratings of the "new show" reportedly already in the works. TLC is said to be a marketing expert and knows that this announcement will certainly have people tuning in when the time comes. There is no confirmation from either the family or the network with regard the new show. However, the family has reportedly been spotted filming already.
