Jessa (Duggar) Seewald is addressing rumors head-on.
The Counting On shut down pregnancy speculation over the weekend, replying to an inquiring fan in the comments section of an Instagram photo.
"Will you announce your 4th pregnancy soon? Noticed the bump," the fan wrote.
"There’s no baby behind the bump — only tacos. Thanks for asking," Jessa replied.
Jessa, 27, shares sons Spurgeon, 4, Henry, 3, and daughter Ivy, 1, with husband Ben Seewald. While their family isn't growing at the moment, the couple has been open about their hope to adopt in the future.
She peers out the back door and says “Outside!” When I let her out onto the porch, she points to the swing set and says “Swing!” When she seated and the ride begins, she squeals, “Weee, weeeeee, WEEEE!!!” The smile on her face stretches from ear to ear. When I ask her if she’s done, she turns her head away from me and gives an emphatic “No!” So the ride continues until my arm workout is complete— and then I try to distract her with something else. 😁 I know she won’t always be this little. Before I know it, she’ll upgrade from the baby swing to a big kid swing, just like her brothers have. I’ll blink and she’ll be 6 years old, figuring out how to make that swing fly through the sky all by herself. I’ll blink again and she’ll be 16– and who knows if this favorite pastime of hers may well be a thing of the past! Babies don’t keep. They won’t always be little. Cherish the moments. ❤️

"Ben and I still have a deep desire to adopt, and it’s something we continue to look into," Jessa previously told PEOPLE. "We’ve also talked about fostering to adopt."
Last year during an episode of Counting On, Jessa revealed that her son Henry showed some delayed speech during a visit to the doctor’s office.
“He has some speech delays,” she said. “We think it might be a good idea to just have him evaluated, have his hearing checked, and see what they think we should do next.”
According to Jessa, she and Ben, 24, realized when Henry was about 18 months old “that he wasn’t communicating like his older brother did at that age, or like other kids his age.”

“We realize that each kid develops at their own pace, but he’s not been really catching on,” she said. “He’s not really able to talk and communicate what he wants. A lot of the times it’s just grunts and pointing and that kind of thing.”
“We are going back this morning for a follow-up speech evaluation," she wrote. "I think Henry is really catching up!"
