Duggar fans are worried Jessa and Ben Seewald might be hurting for money after welcoming their fourth child into the world. What has fans thinking this TLC couple might be hard up for cash? Keep reading, we’ll explain what has fans thinking they are hurting for money.
Jessa and Ben Seewald just welcomed their fourth child into the world
Normally, a Duggar birth would result in an hour-long TV special on TLC. So, in a way, giving birth to a baby usually allows a member of Jim Bob Duggar’s family to make some quick cash. Unfortunately, TLC pulled the plug on Counting On. So, this meant no birth special for Jessa and Ben. Still, she made the best of the situation by filming it anyway and turning it into a YouTube series. The birth of her fourth child was broken up into many different parts forcing people to come back to get the whole story.
From a business standpoint, this was a move that made sense. More videos would turn into more YouTube income for Jessa and Ben Seewald. So, each video had to reveal a piece of information fans wanted to know. The gender of the baby. The name of the baby. Jessa’s other children meeting the baby. Each video reveals something new. So, it forces those interested in the details to watch each video.
Wait, what is their 2021 net worth?
As we previously reported, many Duggar fans wondered how Ben and Jessa Seewald could financially support a fourth child. So, we did a deep dive into what their 2021 net worth was. Their 2021 net worth was determined to be about $400,000. Now, this 2021 net worth does include the income Ben and Jessa Seewald generate from the TLC series Counting On. It, however, is unclear how much money the pair actually received from the series. There were a lot of rumors Jessa’s father Jim Bob Duggar was the only member of the family who actually received money from TLC.
So, if their net worth does include this income… It would be a lot less now that the show has been canceled. That, in combination with the fact that they’ve just had a fourth baby, has a lot of fans concerned they aren’t capable of financially supporting these children. After all, Duggar fans aren’t really sure what Ben Seewald does for a living. And, Jessa presumably lives at home taking care of their children.
Why do fans think Jessa and Ben Seewald are pressed for cash?
Several media outlets, including The Hollywood Gossip, are reporting Jessa and Ben Seewald are spending A LOT of time monitoring the comments of their YouTube birth videos. And, what does that mean exactly? Well, they are deleting comments that eliminate the need to actually watch the videos. So, comments revealing the baby’s name and gender are being removed. As we previously reported, Jessa and Ben Seewald appear to be milking YouTube for all the income they can with several different birth videos. And, now, they are removing spoilers from the comments of these videos.
