Since 2015, Counting On fans have witnessed the Duggar children tie the knot one-by-one, and some within just a few months of each other. In 2019 alone, the famous family has announced a total of five pregnancies.
But when it comes to Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s unmarried offspring, things have been relatively quiet on the relationship front.
Are any of the Duggars courting?
As of May 2021, none of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's children were in a relationship without being married — at least that was public knowledge, that is.
On Sept. 21, 2020, Justin Duggar officially confirmed on Sept. 21 that he was courting Claire Spivey. Less than two months later (on Nov. 16), the young couple announced they were engaged.
"After 14 months of courting, I am thrilled beyond words to be engaged to @justinsamduggar!!!" Claire wrote on Instagram. "So looking forward to see what the Lord holds for us during this next chapter of life. Thank you everyone for your support and enthusiasm!!"
Justin wrote, "So excited to announce that we are engaged!! I will never forget the look on her face when I slid the ring on her finger. We look forward to the day that we get to begin the rest of our lives together!"
The couple went on to tie the knot in February 2021 — and Counting On fans are already suspecting there could be a pregnancy announcement on the horizon.
Jedidiah Duggar announced he was married in April 2021.
Going against Duggar tradition, Jedidiah had been secretly courting Katey Nakatsu for about a year before they announced they had quietly married in April 2021.
Yes, Jana Duggar is still single.
The 31-year-old is still very much single — and she has opened up about feeling pressure sometimes from her siblings and parents to settle down.
"There can be that pressure, I guess. Everyone’s always giving their suggestions," she said during an episode of Counting On that aired in late 2019. "Some will pressure in some ways, I’m like, ‘Y’all when the time comes.'"
Jana continued, "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? 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."
Two Duggar couples are currently expecting a baby.
As of May 2021, there are two Duggar couples expecting a baby. Jessa and Ben Seewald will be welcoming their fourth child sometime in summer 2021. And Josh and Anna Duggar will welcome their seventh child in fall 2021.
With more and more of Michelle and Jim Bob's children reaching adulthood, a new courtship or pregnancy is always just around the corner. Who will be next to make a big announcement?
