There are a lot of things to love about the Duggars. They have wholesome values. They wear skirts to work out. They “side hug.” Overall, they’re great. Still, a small part of us, deep down inside, has secretly been waiting for one of them to rebel. And it looks like our wish has (allegedly) been granted.
A new report claims Jana Duggar is leaving 19 Kids and Counting — and her family — behind to follow her dreams, which don’t involve a wedding, babysitting, cooking tater tot casseroles or even Tim Tebow…
“Jana just turned 25, so she knows she needs to get on with her education if she doesn’t want to be stuck at her mom and dad’s house in Arkansas forever,” a source says. “She told her parents that she was looking at Christian colleges and would be applying soon.”

The source tells ‘OK!’ magazine the announcement didn’t sit well with her parents, who want her to go down a more “traditional” path like her sisters Jessa and Jill!
Jessa, 22, tied the knot last November and has been open about her desires to start a family, while her 23-year-old sister Jill got married last June and is currently 38 weeks along in her first pregnancy.
Though the family’s oldest child Josh — who is married with three children and another on the way — attended college, the Duggar parents likely want Jana to continue working as a midwife like her pregnant sister Jill, who recently caused some confusion with her career!
On March 10, she posed for a picture with a newborn baby. Naturally, many fans thought she had finally given birth to Baby Dilly, but it turns out, it was just a baby she helped deliver.

Well, we think it’s awesome Jana wants to do her own thing — and wish her the best of luck in whatever she decides to pursue!
