It’s been nearly two months since John-David Duggar and Abbie Burnett tied the knot, and now fans think they’re taking the next step: parenthood! Scroll below to see the post that has some fans convinced the newlyweds are expecting.

On Dec. 27, Abbie and John posted a couple’s photo on their joint Instagram account. In the pic, Abbie sits on John’s lap while he wraps his hands around her waist. “Hope you all had a very merry Christmas!” they captioned the pic.
While Abbie’s stomach was covered up by John’s arm, fans were more surprised by the rest of the caption, which quoted the Bible passage about the birth of Jesus.
A few fans felt the Bible quote wasn’t simply used to emphasize “the reason for the season.” They thought it was John and Abbie’s way of hinting that their own baby is on the way!
“Are y’all expecting?” one fan wrote. “Oooh a baby hint :),” said another.
John and Abbie wed on Nov. 3, so it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary, by Duggar stands, for them to already be expecting! John’s sister Joy-Anna and his sister-in-law Kendra both got pregnant on their honeymoons.
Plus, it’s possible John and Abbie may be eager to have kids sooner rather than later. John, at 28, was older than any of his siblings were when they got married. And Abbie is 26, which is the same age as his sister Jessa, who already has two kids.
