Jessa, 30, shared a video of Fern wandering around the living room at their Arkansas home looking for her lollipop.

She stepped into the shot and cradled her daughter, pointing out that it was stuck to her dress.

“It’s right here. Here’s your lolly!” Jessa exclaimed. “It’s suck on the back of your dress.

The TLC star cheered, “Yay” as Fern managed to get the treat off of her clothing.

She added: “That’s what you call saving it for later! Yum! Just as good as it was half an hour ago.”

Jessa captioned the clip, “‘I was just saving that for later,’” and added a laughing face emoji.

While the mother-of-four saw the funny side of the video, some of her followers weren’t quite as amused.

One wrote in a since-deleted comment, “This seems somewhat… unhygienic?”

Another added, “Yeah my first thought was gross,” and a third asked: “How in the world did it end up there?”

Others praised the sweet moment, however, with one commenting: “That’s too funny. Better the dress than hair!”

“So cute! She was so happy to enjoy it again too,” another user remarked.

Jessa has four kids with her husband, Ben Seewald, 27: Spurgeon, seven; Henry, five; Ivy, three; and Fern.

Fans think Jessa could be pregnant with a fifth child after spotting what looked like a bump underneath her dress in a holiday decorating video late last year.

The reality star fuelled the rumors last week when she appeared in her pregnant sisterJoy-Anna‘s YouTube video.

Fans noticed that during Jessa looked like she was trying to hide her stomach during a trip to a nail salon with her sisters to celebrate Jana’s birthday.

The 19 Kids & Counting alum sat in a chair with a bag across her tummy while getting a pedicure.

One eagle-eyed fan pointed out the suspicious placement of her bag, starting the discussion: “The ol’ purse in front of the stomach trick? Coincidence or #29?”

Others agreed that the move might have been on purpose, with another writing: “The 2x-sized baggy sweatshirt only adds to speculation that she is pregnant.”
