Duggar and Counting On fans are obsessed with weddings and babies, and they just can’t seem to help themselves when it comes to speculating about who will be the next in the family to start courting. The anticipation of another engagement and pregnancy is almost too much for fans to handle.
Recently, on a Reddit thread, a discussion even started about Kendra Caldwell’s little sister, Lauren, turning 18 and possibly being the next to enter the famous Counting On clan. Honestly, it’s almost too confusing to keep up with.
Kendra married Joseph Duggar last fall, and the couple is expecting their first baby next month. And now that Lauren is 18, fans are already pairing her up with one of Joseph’s brothers. But, the debate is over which eligible Duggar bachelor Lauren will end up with – because she has options.
“Jedidiah. He couldn’t get Kendra so he’d probably go after her younger sister,” commented one user.

“Not sure who, but she will be a Duggar because her teeth are nice and straight and she has fundie hair! She is in for sure,” said a second fan.
A third added, “Lately how all the older guys keep getting with barely-legal girls, I’m gonna say JD.”
The idea that Lauren could start courting a Duggar isn’t that far-fetched of an idea, especially since Kendra and Joseph met through their large families.
But interestingly, Kendra’s entrance into the Duggar family was a bit controversial since – according to sources – the 19-year-old dated Jedidiah before courting Joseph. It appears that someone (probably Jim Bob) thought that Kendra and Joseph were a better match.
Things turned out well for the couple, but it meant that Jedidiah was still single, and fans are ready for the 19-year-old to find the right lady. Is it possible he has set his sights on Lauren? After all, she has started showing up at Duggar family events lately.
The Caldwell’s are from Fayetteville, Arkansas, and grew up in a family that is just as religious as the Duggars. Their dad, Paul, is a pastor at Lighthouse Baptist Church, and the Duggars regularly attend services there.
Lauren and Kendra Caldwell have five siblings – Micah, Nathan, Timothy, Olivia, and Jesiah – but only the two oldest girls have appeared on Counting On.
New episodes of Counting On will return to TLC later this summer.
