Jana takes a break from Instagram

Counting On fans were surprised when Jana launched her Instagram account last year. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have strict rules when it comes to courting, and their children usually do not open their own social media accounts until after they are in a committed relationship.

Although the Duggars are normally quick to marry and have children, Jana has yet to find her Mr. Right. And now that she is 30 years old and still single, Jana’s status has fueled rumors about her sexual preference.

Jana has addressed the fact that she is still single on social media. But the constant questions have led to frequent breaks for the Counting On star, including her most recent hiatus from Instagram.

Prior to her latest post, the last time fans heard from Jana was back on April 23. After a few weeks of silence passed, fans began to speculate that Jana had quit the platform for good.

That all changed, however, when Jana took to Instagram to post a heartfelt tribute to her mom, Michelle, on Mother’s Day.

On Sunday, Jana shared a throwback photo of Michelle with a lengthy caption. The Counting On star praised her mom for being an amazing parent and thanked her for always being there for her and her 18 siblings.

“Mom, If I were to think of one word to describe you, the first word that comes to mind is ‘selfless,’” Jana wrote. “You are always giving of your time, energy and resources to bless others. I honestly don’t know how you do all that you do! You can run on little sleep for days on end just to make sure your family is taken care of.”

The post was a fairly ordinary Mother’s Day tribute, but fans quickly wondered if it was Jana’s way of sticking up for her parents amid their ongoing family feud.

For the past year, Jim Bob has been at odds with Jill Duggar’s husband, Derick Dillard, who got booted from the series in 2017 for making controversial remarks about the LGBTQ community on social media.

Derick has since accused Jim Bob of some very questionable behavior, including the notion that he takes all of the money from Counting On for himself. Derick is also working on a tell-all memoir about the Duggars which could expose some of the family’s dirtiest secrets.

With Jinger Duggar reportedly coming out in support of Jill, fans suspected that Jana’s recent post was really a show of support for Jim Bob and Michelle. It is hard to say if this is true, but it is evident that Jana’s love for her parents is still very strong.

Jana’s Mother’s Day post also comes on the heels of an explosive claim by someone who used to work for the Duggars. According to The Hollywood Gossip, the ex-employee claims that the real reason Jana is still single is that she is in love with her best friend, Laura DeMaisie.

“Jana, I feel sorry for her,” the insider dished. “She’s gay, and she just doesn’t know how she’s gonna admit that she’s gay, but she’s in love with her best friend.”

The source added that Jim Bob goes to great lengths to keep tabs on his children, and Jana’s apparent refusal to court is driving him mad. This includes tracking their phones and spying on their text messages.

This is not the first time fans have suspected that Jana and Laura are more than friends. Counting On viewers have speculated about a potential romance for years, though it is important to note that nothing has ever been confirmed.

Laura recently moved to Georgia to pursue a different career.
