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; both are dressed to impress. A post shared by Jeremy Vuolo (@jeremy_vuolo) on Jul 15, 2017 at 9:08pm PDT

“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!!”

As previously reported, the Counting On couple — who met at church — revealed their plan to wed just months ago on May 26.
“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!"

Relationship Status: Single
Although she's the oldest daughter, Jana is still single — a fact that has prompted fans to call her the "Cinderella" of the family. Rumors started spreading that she was being courted by Lawson Bates, but those rumors were shot down by Lawson's mother.
Fans have jumped to some pretty wild speculations for why the oldest Duggar daughter hasn't been lucky in love, from accusations of lesbianism to even conspiracy theories about being "held prisoner" by her family. But the real truth? She just hasn't met the right guy yet.
“There have been different guys who have come along and asked, but they haven’t been, I don’t know, the right one,” she revealed on an episode of Jill and Jessa: Counting On. "It’s like this weird in-between stage. I’m not a younger one, but I’m not an older, married one with kids.”
