This past weekend was a busy one for the Duggar family. Joseph Duggar and his wife Kendra Caldwell welcomed a baby boy, while Josiah Duggar and his fiancé Lauren Swanson had their wedding shower. But will we ever find out when the Counting On stars will say tie the knot?
According to In Touch Weekly, Josiah and Lauren celebrated with a two-tier white cake plus a banner reading “The Future Mr. and Mrs. Duggar.” According to their gift registry at Bed Bath & Beyond, the couple’s big day is set for New Year’s Eve 2018. But, some fans believe the shower proves the wedding will happen much sooner.
Last month the anti-Duggar Facebook page Life Is Not All Pickles and Hairspray reported that the young couple would get married on June 30th. But since the date fell in between the birth of Joseph and Kendra son and Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo’s daughter, many were skeptical.
But now, with a wedding shower already in the books, it seems that date might be right after all.
The couple announced their engagement in March with a sweet video that they posted on Instagram. but since then, Josiah and Lauren have kept their wedding details secret – including the date.
The reason why Josiah and Lauren’s wedding shower was on the same day as the birth of the newest Duggar, is because the baby arrived a week early. Caldwell gave birth to Garrett David Duggar last Saturday, and he weighed in at seven pounds 8 ounces and measured 20 and a half inches long.
“We are so thrilled to announce the arrival of our newest grandbaby, Garrett David Duggar. Kendra and the baby are healthy and happy! Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes,” Jim Bob and Michelle wrote on their website.
Joseph and Kendra are pretty good at stealing the spotlight from other family members. In addition to welcoming their baby on the day of Josiah and Lawrence wedding shower, Joseph popped the question to Kendra at Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth’s wedding reception in May 2017.
We don’t yet know if the next big event in the Duggar family is Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson’s wedding or Jinger and Jeremy’s baby. But it won’t be long before we find out.
