JILL Duggar's husband, Derick Dillard, may have thrown some shade at the star's sisters for "wearing skirts, having long hair and tattoo-free skin."
The couple have strayed away from the famous family's strict rules ever since exiting the TLC series Counting On.
A keen-eyed Reddit user shined a light on a recent blog post on Jill and Derick's site The Dillard Family – particularly a snippet that threw some shade.
Derick wrote: "Different people have their ideas about what a mom should look like. Some walk the walk and talk the talk, but are the farthest from what a Christian mother should be.
"A godly mother is not recognized by donning skirts, having long hair, or tattoo-free skin… but instead, a god-fearing mother is recognized by her character and wise management of what God entrusts in her."
He added: "Some receive the praise of men, but many are the unsung heroes who quietly provide the backbone of our families and the fabric of our society.
"My wife and mother are examples of those moms."
While many users suggested that the passage may be about Jill's sisters, including Jessa and Jinger, others believed the father of two was throwing shade at his wife's mom, Michelle.
One person wrote: "I guess he could've written YOU SUCK AS A MOM, MICHELLE, but this works too."
Another added: "Leaving Michelle out even though he used to refer to her as 'Mom' feels very intentional."
Jill, 29, and Derick, 31, have been on their own path since exiting the popular reality series – they've even been quite open about it.
Jill previously told People: "Our control to choose what jobs we were allowed to accept and even where we were allowed to live was taken away from us."
Derick would add: "The first few years of our marriage, we spent time and money working towards opportunities only to hit a dead end when we'd be told, 'Well, you're not allowed to do that.'"
Jill then revealed how her decision to quit "didn't go over very well with anyone."
While she has not gotten any tattoos, Jill has a nose piercing, and has even considered getting a "gold hoop" nose ring.
Jill has even admitted to using birth control – despite her parents Jim Bob and Michelle forbidding the prevention of pregnancy within a marriage.

The pair has also opened up about bedroom activities to keep a marriage "fun."
Derick has definitely not shied away from speaking his mind as he recently claimed that the couple faked their farewell scene for the cameras.
He explained during a YouTube Q&A: "Jill came to Nepal seven years ago and actually, once all the filming and everything was done and we had recorded our goodbye, she stayed another week and we had Thanksgiving together."
Jill added: "That wasn't in the show."
Derick went on: "Once we said goodbye for the cameras and Jill went away in the taxi, she came back and we spent another week together."
The space between the rebel duo and the family led to Jill and Derick not being invited to the big Duggar Christmas party.
