‘Counting On’ Followers Think Jana Duggar Would Choose Josh Duggar’s Wife, Anna, as Her Maid of Honor One Day
Those who follow the Duggars are well aware of the relationship status of the oldest Duggar daughter, Jana. Jana is 30 years old and still living under Jim Bob and Michelle’s roof with her younger siblings. Since the Duggar kids don’t typically move out of the large Arkansas home until they’re married, it makes sense that Jana remains with her parents despite her age.
Jana doesn’t seem to mind her living situation one bet. And there’s been a ton of speculation over the years regarding who she may have courted in the past and who would be a good match for her now. Others have even considered who she would choose to be her maid of honor if she is to wed in the future — and it seems a number of followers believe Josh Duggar’s wife, Anna, is a likely candidate.
Jana Duggar still lives at the Duggar family home since she remains unmarried
There are plenty of theories as to why Jana Duggar has remained single thus far. The 30-year-old woman is smart, talented, and independent — and many wish she would leave Jim Bob and Michelle’s home despite her single status. While rumors abound, it seems Jana is in no rush to find Mr. Right. Instead, she believes God has a plan for everyone, and she hasn’t found the man she’s meant to spend forever with just yet for a reason.
CafeMom notes an insider told Radar Online that Jana is also hoping to avoid jumping into a marriage too quickly. “Jana doesn’t want to be like a lot of others that just go out and get married and end up in a relationship that is negative,” the insider claimed. “She’s content with whatever the Lord wants for her.”
That doesn’t mean Jana doesn’t think about finding the right guy, though. She once wrote on Instagram that she hopes to marry a man with the same values as her father, Jim Bob.
Many think Jana and Jill Duggar aren’t as close as they once were
So, if Jana was to wed, who would be her maid of honor? We can’t forget that Jana was Jill’s maid of honor, but their relationship likely isn’t what it used to be. Jill’s husband, Derick Dillard, spoke out against Jill’s parents and TLC at the end of 2019 via Instagram. According to Dillard, he and Jill are on the outs with the other Duggars. And Jill isn’t even allowed in Jana’s home without permission from Jim Bob.
Jana frequently talks highly of her parents. So it’s reasonable to expect that Dillard’s outspoken nature has caused a rift between the sisters. Reddit users also guessed that Jana could’ve chosen Jill as her maid of honor at one point in her life, but now, probably not. And if TLC has any involvement, Jill definitely wouldn’t be an option.
“I’d say Jill, but that wouldn’t work for TLC,” one Reddit user noted.
“It will not be Jill because of TLC,” another echoed.
Some followers think Jana would choose Anna Duggar as her maid of honor
It seems many Reddit users believe Jana might pick Josh Duggar’s wife, Anna, as her maid of honor. Anna and Jana have frequent public correspondence via Instagram. While Anna frequently gets backlash over featuring her controversial husband, Josh, on her Instagram, Jana often shows support with a loving comment.
“I think Anna and Jana have gotten really close since the 2015 scandals,” one Reddit user noted. “I remember Anna saying in an interview once how much she appreciated Jana being there through all that.”
“As long as TLC allows it/if TLC is no longer filming. I think Jana would probably pick Anna most,” another wrote. “Also, let’s be honest-Anna would be a fantastic moh. Does anything that is asked of her, seems the craftiest of the bunch, kinder than the rest of the sisters.”
There’s also speculation that Jessa could be the chosen one. But Jana spends way more time with her much-younger siblings, as they all live together, too. So a potential maid of honor could also be one of the young Duggar girls we rarely hear about. No matter what, we’ll have to wait and (maybe) see!
