‘Counting On’ Stars Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson Just Broke One of Jim Bob Duggar’s Biggest Rules on Instagram

Counting On stars Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson have officially joined the rebellion. The couple, who are expecting their first child, recently shared a photo of themselves locking lips on Instagram. This sort of behavior is pretty normal for most married couples, but it flies in the face of one of Jim Bob Duggar’s biggest rule.

Duggar and Swanson break the rules

Taking to Instagram, Duggar and Swanson recently shared a slew of photos of themselves getting extra cozy. One of the images features the two kissing, which is something that is unheard of in the Duggar camp.

“Love doing life with you!” the couple captioned their kissing photo. “Btw I’m ready for fall, Siah is still in summer.”

Counting On fans, of course, loved the images and expressed their excitement for the couple in the comments section. Some fans praised them for being the cutest pair ever while others complemented Swanson on her looks.

Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson announced their pregnancy this past May. The news came a few months after the two suffered a tragic miscarriage.

Although they were excited about the new baby, they also paid tribute to the one they lost, Asa. It is definitely sad that they had to endure a miscarriage, but it is good to see that they have bounced back.

That said, Swanson has been updating fans on the regular on social media and recently revealed that her second pregnancy has not been smooth sailing. We can only hope that things get better for the couple and that they have a healthy child after the birth.

Swanson has not revealed an exact due date for the baby, but she is expected to give birth soon.

Lauren Swanson opens up about her romance

While we wait for more updates on the baby front, Swanson recently opened up about the early days of her relationship with Duggar.

Last month, Swanson revealed 11 facts about herself, including how she and Duggar first met.

The Counting On star told her Instagram followers that she originally crossed paths with Duggar when they were just kids. The pair met during an ATI conference, which was held in Big Sandy, Texas, in 2010.

Over the years, Lauren Swanson watched as Duggar matured, though she always remembered him as being a funny kid.

Some other fun facts about Swanson are that she was raised on a small farm in Georgia and is part Hispanic. Like Duggar, she also comes from a large family and had nine other brothers and sisters.

When it comes to her education, Swanson went to nursing school when she was only 16 years old and finished her degree two years later.

The Counting On star then clarified that she does not have a nursing certification and would have to go back to college for a year or two to get one.

In closing, Swanson revealed that her secret talent is yodeling. She also enjoys playing the piano and singing alongside Duggar.

Swanson prepares to give birth

Apart from sharing photos of her growing baby bump on social media, the Counting On star has confirmed that she and Duggar are expecting to have a baby girl.

While an exact due date has not been announced, Swanson is expected to welcome her daughter before the year is out.

Once that happens, Swanson will join a list of Duggar women who have already given birth this year or are expecting to have children in the near future. This includes the likes of Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald, Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell, Anna and Josh Duggar, Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth, and Amy Duggar and Dillon King.

Although the Duggars are experiencing another baby boom, Swanson isn’t the only one who has suffered a miscarriage. A few months ago, Joy-Anna Duggar confirmed that she also lost a baby.

Some of the pregnancy journeys are expected to take center stage in the upcoming season of Counting On, though there is no telling which ones will be highlighted.

Swanson and Duggar have not revealed if their pregnancy will be featured on the show, but we are fairly confident their story will include elements of Swanson’s pregnancy.

Fans can watch Lauren Swanson and Josiah Duggar in action when the new season of Counting On premieres October 15 on TLC.
