Did they get hitched on the DL?! Fans are speculating that Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell secretly tied the knot over the weekend thanks to a seemingly telling photo posted by Jinger Duggar’s husband, Jeremy Vuolo.
The soccer player, 29, took to Instagram on Sunday, July 16, to share a pic of himself with nephews Spurgeon, 20 months, and Henry, five months (the adorable sons of Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald), all decked out in formalwear.
“Kickin it w/ the wee lads at a wedding! Spurgeon is excited; Henry is confused,” Jeremy captioned the pic. “Both are dressed to impress.”
Immediately, fans flooded the athlete’s comments section with questions about the special occasion — which many assumed could only be Joseph and Kendra’s wedding.
“OMG OMG!! Please tell me this is a pic from Joe and Kendra’s wedding!!!” one excited fan wrote, while another asked, “did Kendra and Joe get married??? This has to be a pic from their wedding day!!!”

Another fan noted that, if this Kendra, 18, and Joe, 22, did indeed say their “I dos,” their engagement was rather short. “Well that was fast!” they quipped of the potential ceremony. “#congrats Joe and Kendra!!”
“We are so excited to be engaged and look forward to a lifetime together. We are so grateful for how the Lord brought us together, and we look forward to this special time of engagement and to some day serving Christ as man and wife,” Joe and Kendra said in a statement posted to the Duggar family’s official website.
Back in March, the duo announced their courtship, which the Duggar famously defines as dating with the intention to marry. According to Joe’s parents, Michelle and Jim Bob, they couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Kendra into their clan.
“There is a lot of love in the air today! We are so pleased to announce that Joe and Kendra are now engaged to be married! Our sweet Joe is on the verge of starting his own family,” Michelle and Jim Bob wrote on Facebook, not long after Joe asked for Kendra’s hand in marriage. “We are so happy for them both. Above all, we are so thankful for their love and commitment to Christ. We are so excited about another Duggar wedding in the near future!"
