Is the Duggar family about to grow even more?! Joseph Duggar, 22, has had a whirlwind romance with his now-wife Kendra Caldwell. He popped the question earlier this year at his sister Joy-Anna's wedding in May, just a month ago in September they tied the knot, and now, the couple is facing pregnancy rumors. Could Kendra and Joseph be gearing up to expand their family just one month into their marriage?
"One of the most enjoyable things about being married to Joe is just being together so much," Kendra has revealed. "I can hug him, kiss him, talk with, and be with him all the time. Being with your best friend makes marriage amazing."

Yes. Earlier this year, a business associate of the Duggars anonymously came forward to reveal that Kendra had previously been courting Jedidiah Duggar, 18. The insider claimed that Joseph "bumped" Jed out of the picture before their relationship got serious.
"There’s a whole world that goes on that really isn't so," the insider said of the Duggars. "When the cameras aren’t rolling, it’s a whole different life."
Kendra was 19 years old when she became engaged to 22-year-old Joseph. By her wedding, she had turned 20 years old. On Facebook, the Duggar family page wished Kendra a happy 20th by writing, "Happy Birthday, Kendra! You are such a precious young lady! We hope you have a great birthday!!"
The online birthday wishes drew immediate scrutiny from fans. Many people didn't agree with the phrasing "precious young lady" and took issue with the post, claiming it sexist.
As of yet, Kendra Caldwell does not have an Instagram. The Duggar family has a rule that says no Duggars can have social media until they are engaged or after they are married. Perhaps it's taking Kendra an extra month to get the ball rolling on her social media accounts!
Kendra Duggar is the 20-year-old wife of Joe Duggar. She is the oldest of seven children and her father is Pastor Caldwell. Joe and Kendra met in church and immediately enjoyed each other's similar views on faith and religion. They ended up talking for six months before officially announcing their courtship.
"Our families are close friends through church, and this has allowed Kendra and me to get to know each other. She’s the best!" Joseph has said. "Right when we started talking we really hit it off really well."
Before getting officially engaged, Joe offered Kendra a promise ring at the beginning of their courtship. "The promise ring signifies that I promise I’m going to wait for you for marriage," Joseph told TLC. "It’s kind of a similar token to what my other siblings have done. I just thought it was something a little it different."
"I'm so happy and so shocked," Kendra said of their engagement. "There's so many words I want to say, but just shocked."
