‘Counting On’ Fans Can’t Get Over This Photo of Jana Duggar Holding Her Twin Brother’s New Baby
“Little Gracie! ❤️ She’s practically perfect in every way!” Jana, 30, captioned the post.
John says baby Grace Annette is ‘gonna love her aunt’
Grace Annette Duggar was born on Jan. 7. She’s the first child of John David, 30, and his wife Abbie Grace Duggar, 27. The couple married in November 2018.
Jana has plenty of experience being an aunt. After all, she has 16 other nieces and nephews from her other siblings. But Gracie is special, since she’s her twin’s firstborn. And John David seems to know that the pair will have a special bond.
“Oh, she’s gonna love her aunt Jana!!” the @johnandabbie Instagram account replied to Jana’s post.
Jana has previously posted about how happy she was to meet Gracie.
“Ever since John and I were little we’ve been asked if we have that ‘twin thing,’ she wrote on Instagram on Jan. 12. “You know, the thing where you feel what the other one is feeling or know what the other one is thinking. Well, John, I’ve always answered that with a no—but now I can honestly say that the day little Gracie was born I felt every bit of happiness that you did, so I guess it must be real!”
Fans gush over the picture of Jana and Gracie
On Instagram, fans gushed over the photo of Jana cradling the newborn. Many replied with comments like, “Beautiful,” “precious,” and “adorable.”
“You are such an amazing aunt and Gracie is blessed to have u because u will always have a special relationship with her since her dad is your twin!” one wrote.
Some wonder about Jana’s future
While many people had sweet comments on Jana’s post, a few took the opportunity to speculate about her future. At 30, Jana is the oldest single Duggar. Many Counting On fans have wondered when she might get married and if it upsets her to see her younger siblings start families of their own while she still lives at home.
“I love how you are always rejoicing with and for your brothers and sisters. Not jealous, not bitter, or upset that you haven’t had your turn,” one person commented on Jana’s post.
“Why r you still single? You are the most beautiful sister inside and out,” another asked.
“When is Janna going to find a husband??? She’s almost 30,” read another blunt comment.
Jana says she’s waiting for ‘Mr. Right’
While fans fret about her future, Jana seems to be content. When a fan on Instagram told Jana that she hoped she’d soon find her “handsome prince,” her reply was lighthearted.
“Maybe he’s riding in on a green turtle instead of a white horse. 🤣” she replied. “Still searching for Mr. Right. In the words of Michael Bublé, ‘Just haven’t met [him] yet!’”
She discussed being single in more depth during a 2019 episode of Counting On, explaining that she’d been involved with several guys in the past, but things didn’t work out. And she was OK with that.
“If I was sitting here waiting to get married, I think that would be more depressing but instead, I really look at this as, OK what are other things that I could be doing right now that maybe I can’t do later?” she said. “I’ve really enjoyed the different opportunities that I’ve had [like] travel; even still being able to travel with my family that maybe my married siblings can’t do.”
