Counting On fans have waited a long time for the day when Jana Duggar got her own Instagram account — and the wait is officially over. The Counting On star just shared her first post on social media in what might be one of the most rebellious moves in the history of the Duggar family.
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have strict rules against their children having social media accounts before marriage. Jana seems to have rebelled against those rules and is officially the first member of the Duggar family to be on social media without actively courting someone.
Although the move could be interpreted as rebellious behavior, Jana’s first post featured members of her family, which Jim-Bob and Michelle would be hard pressed to argue against.
The Counting On star posted an adorable pic of Jessa Dugar and Ben Seewald’s two children, Spurgeon and Henry. She captioned the pic by writing, “Best buddies.”
Fans were obviously thrilled when they saw Jana’s first post and eagerly welcomed her to Instagram. They also expressed an interest in seeing more photos and learning more about the Duggar’s oldest daughter.

I enjoyed the sweet birthday time today! So grateful for my Mom having me & helping raise me into the woman I am today! I look up to her so much and hope to be like her someday! She is one that gives of herself and expects nothing in return, she’s thoughtful, creative, patient, kind, gentle, diligent, humble, serving with joy and always pointing us to Christ! Mom, you truly are the best Mom in the whole world, my best friend and I love you dearly! ❤️
True to her religious upbringing, Jana also shared a bible verse as part of her official Instagram bio.
“This I declare about the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I trust Him,” she wrote.
According to Romper, Jana’s social media activity has also sparked rumors that she is courting someone. Unfortunately, Jana quickly shut down the courting talk and revealed that she is not dating anyone at the moment.
In fact, Jana assured fans that her opening up a social media account is not against any family rule. She also stated that the courting rumors are pure coincidence and are not related to her Instagram.

That said, Jana Duggar was not featured on the promo pic for the new season of Counting On. This could be because she is getting ready to make a big announcement on the show, just like Jessa, who recently confirmed that she is pregnant with her third child.
