We are only a few weeks away from Season 9 of Counting On, and it sounds like another Duggar wedding might be in the works. Amid rumors that she is finally courting, Jana Duggar is reportedly getting ready for a big announcement this season.
As the oldest daughter in the Duggar family, Jana has faced mounting pressure to find herself a good man. Jim Bob Duggar even humiliated Jana last season when he revealed that she still prays about finding love.
The courting rumors reached new heights when Jana opened an Instagram account a few weeks ago. Counting On fans immediately took this as a sign that she has started courting, though nothing official has been confirmed.
A new teaser trailer for the upcoming season has only made the rumors worse. According to Radar Online, the trailer shows Counting On producers asking members of the Duggar family if they know about a big announcement that is in the works.
Just about all of the Duggar kids seem to have no idea what is going on, except for Jana. After pretending to be just as confused as everyone else, Jana starts laughing in front of the cameras, which all but confirms that she has a big announcement.
We have no idea who Jana might be courting. She was last linked to Caleb Williams, who was charged with sexual assault back in December. Fans have also speculated that Jana is in a relationship with Lawson Bates, a longtime friend of the family.
Bates wrote a flirty note on one of Jana’s Instagram posts, though Jessa Duggar later shut down rumors that her sister is courting. There is also a possibility that Jana Duggar’s big announcement has nothing to do with dating, but we’ll find out soon enough.
The new season of Counting On is set to premiere Feb. 11 on TLC.
