With Season 2 of Welcome to Plathville well underway, it has become clearer and clearer that this isn't another iteration of 19 Kids and Counting. Not only have some of the older kids asserted their independence, but the eldest daughter, Hosanna Plath, hasn't been featured on the show yet. It has led many fans to wonder why and whether or not she’ll pop in at some point in the future.
But Hosanna’s mere absence has viewers talking about her more than if she were actually on the show. Like Lydia Plath, one of the teenage daughters, Hosanna is close to parents Kim and Barry Plath. She is also dedicated to their Christian faith and, apparently, less than eager to showcase her private life on TV for all to see.
So, where is the oldest 'Welcome to Plathville' daughter, Hosanna Plath?
Unlike Barry and Kim’s other eight kids, Hosanna isn't on Welcome to Plathville. In fact, she doesn't even live in Georgia, where the rest of the family resides. For now, she lives in Ohio with her husband, so it makes sense for her to be the one Plath child who isn't on the show. It doesn't mean she isn't close to her family, but geographically, it just makes sense that Hosanna isn't filmed for Welcome to Plathville.
That hasn't stopped fans from speculating, however. Some theorize that Hosanna doesn’t fully support the idea of her family being on reality TV, while others have reasoned that maybe Hosanna will appear on the show later on. Given that she doesn't live in the same town or even the same state as the rest of her family, however, it might be a while before viewers see Hosanna on Welcome to Plathville.
Hosanna is close to another Christian Fundamentalist family.
Although neither Hosanna nor her husband are on Instagram, Hosanna has appeared on the Instagram account for the Christian Fundamentalist family, the Rodrigueses. They are close to 19 Kids and Counting family the Duggars as well. One of the Rodrigues daughters, Nurie Rodrigues, even just married Anna Duggar’s brother-in-law’s brother.
When Hosanna and her husband got married, Nurie was one of the bridesmaids and the official Rodrigues family Instagram shared photos from the day. Even so, Hosanna herself seems to shy away from social media and might prefer to live a more low-key life when it comes to her family and Welcome to Plathville.
Who is Hosanna Plath's husband?
Even if Hosanna isn't on social media, she and her husband, Timothy Noble, aren't exactly shy. They are a musical duo and, pre-COVID-19, they had frequently toured the United States putting on concerts. They met at the National Quartet Convention, a gospel music event, and, thanks to Timothy’s recording studio, they have even recorded music together.
It might benefit Hosanna and Timothy’s shared music career to eventually appear on Welcome to Plathville, if only for the possible exposure they’d get. For now, however, it seems like fans will have to make do with all of the other Plath children.
Watch Welcome to Plathville on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
