When you are a young single woman, Valentine’s Day can be less than spectacular when you don’t have a significant other to share it with. But, for Counting On star Jana Duggar, some fans think things got a little creepy on the romantic holiday. So what gift showed up for the oldest Duggar daughter that had fans talking?
This week the family posted a photo of the 28-year-old with a massive floral arrangement, and excited fans first thought the gift came from a suitor.
But, the caption – written by Jana’s parents, Jim Bob and Michelle – revealed that the flowers came from Jana’s brothers. For some, the gesture was heartwarming, but others found it to be creepy and weird. And, there was another segment of fans who were simply disappointed that Jana hadn’t found Mr. Right.
Jana received SO MANY beautiful valentine flowers from her brothers on Valentine’s day!
The reaction to the photo varied widely and caused quite the discussion among fans. One even blamed her parents and their strict courtship rules as the reason she is still single.
“How is she waiting for mister right when she is not allowed to go anywhere? Mister right isn’t going to just come knocking on the door or drop out of the sky,” wrote one fan.
The Duggars are big fans of Valentine’s Day, and they have a long-standing tradition of single family members exchanging gifts. But fans are ready for Jana to enter a relationship, and they hoped that the holiday would bring a courtship announcement.
Over the past few months, reports had surfaced that Jana was dating family friend Caleb Williams, but she never spoke out about the rumors. Since she never confirmed nor denied the story, it gave fans hope, but Williams finally went to Facebook and shut the story down once and for all.
In the post, he said that he wanted to clear the fog and avoid any confusion, and then followed it by writing, “Read my lips…I am not dating Jana Duggar.”

Jim Bob Duggar continues to remind the world that his oldest daughter is still single, and he can’t believe that’s the case. During a recent appearance at a church in Kilsyth South Victoria, Australia, he candidly spoke about Jana’s lack of a love life, saying that she is still praying about finding the one.
But Jana has made it clear in the past that she is in no hurry to settle down. She says that she has had offers to court in the past, but she has yet to meet the right guy.
Jana Duggar and most of her famous family return with new episodes of Counting On, Monday, February 26, on TLC.
