Counting On star Kendra Caldwell quickly made her way into the Duggar family last summer, and just one year later she is already a wife and mother. Joseph Duggar proposed to Caldwell during Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth’s wedding reception in May, they married in September, in December they announced they were expecting, and by June they were parents.
Things happen quickly in Duggar world, but things have gone so fast for Caldwell, fans still haven’t gotten much of a chance to get to know her. So, what do we know about Joseph’s 20-year-old bride?

As Romper points out, Caldwell has fit right in with the Duggar family, but with so many siblings, spouses, and children, it can be easy to get lost in the crowd. For many fans, it is difficult to remember everyone’s names, much less know personal details about each family member, but when it comes to Caldwell, there is so much more to know in addition to her relationship.
Caldwell and her husband do not have social media accounts, so it is difficult to keep up with the young couple. She also prefers phone calls over texting, so she definitely isn’t your average woman in her early 20s.

In a recent video on TLC’s YouTube channel, Caldwell said that her favorite color is the color of her husband’s eyes (which are blue-green), and when she was little, she was obsessed with ladybugs because she thought “they were so cute.” She incorporated this obsession into her fashion choices, sporting a ladybug umbrella, rain jacket, and rain boots.
The new mom also revealed that she loves Mexican food and doesn’t consider herself a picky eater. However, she is not a fan of mushrooms because they are “too slimy.”
In a recent Counting On episode, Caldwell said during her honeymoon with Duggar that her career plans were to help “Joe with his business,” — he sells cars — as well as stay home and start a family.
One of the most interesting facts about Caldwell is that she and her mom, Christina, were pregnant at the same time. Caldwell’s parents got married in their late teens, and she is the oldest of eight kids. Her mom is now 38, and her dad, Paul, is 40. Christina was also a bridesmaid at her daughter’s wedding.
And, even though Caldwell just gave birth to her first child, Garrett, back in June, she has said she wants a big family, so another baby announcement probably won’t be too far in the future.
You can catch up with Kendra Caldwell and the rest of the Duggar family when new episodes of Counting On air Monday nights on TLC.
