They’re putting in work! The Duggar kids are reportedly feeling a little burned out after putting in so many hours filming their hit TV show Counting On, according to Even though fans love to watch every minute of their lives, they allegedly don’t film all-year long because it’s just too much for them.

“The kids just don’t want to be in front of the cameras 24/7,” a source told Radar, noting how they’ve been on camera for so long, that it’s a lot for them to handle. “They have a big break in between filming to carry on with their lives,” the insider noted, explaining how this gives them time to enter in courtships and focus their energy on other things. John-David even kept his relationship under wraps for a bit “so he could enjoy time without the press.”

Despite the pressure, the Duggars reportedly have no plans to quit their hit spin-off anytime soon. The kids will still continue to film the show for as long as possible, because it does have it’s perks and obviously is a money-maker for the brood. “They will keep doing the show for a while,” the source confirmed to Radar. It’s been quite an exhilarating few months for the Duggar family, with whirlwind engagements, baby births, and romantic weddings.

Fans were elated to find out John-David popped the question to Abbie Grace Burnett only a month after starting their courtship. And in July, Jinger welcomed her first baby girl with her hubby Jeremy, and she’s been sharing adorable photos of her bundle of joy. Josiah Duggar also just tied the knot with Lauren Swanson, and Jessa Duggar even revealed she has baby fever after meeting Felicity. There’s enough excitement to last several seasons!
