The single status of 28-year-old Counting On star Jana Duggar continues to perplex fans, and as a result, they have given her the nickname “Cinderella Duggar.” The fact that the oldest Duggar daughter has not yet walked down the aisle – or even courted – continues to be a mystery, since the family is known for their children marrying young. But even though fans are eager for her to find a man, is it possible that Duggar is content with her life exactly how it is?
A new YouTube video features Duggar looking happy as she spends time in her garden – a beautiful field of fruits and vegetables –, which her younger sister Jessa Seewald calls “a work of art.”
But fans are concerned that Duggar is spending too much time with her pumpkins instead of finding a guy and believe it is the result of her parents’ sticking her with babysitting duties for far too long.
“It’s sad to watch a 28-year-old woman raising her mother’s ‘blessings.’ Too bad she can’t use her many talents for her own life,” one fan wrote in response to the video.
Another fan agreed, writing that it is horrible that Duggar’s parents force her to be a mom to her younger siblings.
One fan even had the idea that if Duggar has such a green thumb, she should go on the dating website Farmers Only to find a man.
Even though the reality star doesn’t have a steady boyfriend, she did receive a gigantic vase full of 50 white, pink, and red roses on Valentine’s Day – but it was from her brothers, not a suitor. And, in January, her dad Jim Bob raised eyebrows when he joked about his oldest daughter still being single.
He told a crowd that Jana is still praying that she will find “the one.”
In the past, Jana has revealed that men have attempted to court her, but none of them have been right for her. She says that she knows what it feels like to wait for Prince Charming, and it isn’t always easy.
Meanwhile, her younger sisters Jill, Jessa, Jinger, and Joy-Anna have all gotten married and started families. Jill and Jessa each have two boys, Joy-Anna just gave birth to her first son, and Jinger is expecting her first baby this July.
Jana is known for being a second mom to her siblings. And, because the Duggar family requires the daughters in the family to live at home until they are married, she still shares a room with her sisters – all who are under the age of 12.
This makes fans even more concerned about Jana’s living situation and single status, and they continue to wonder if she will ever find love or will just continue to watch her garden grow.
Jana Duggar returns with the rest of her famous family on new episodes of Counting On, this summer on TLC.
