Shield your eyes, Jim Bob! Counting On stars Josiah Duggar and his pregnant wife, Lauren Swanson, posted several photos on their joint Instagram account — including one of them kissing. “Love doing life with you! Btw I’m ready for fall, Siah is still in summer 😜#date #blessed,” the caption read.
Naturally, fans couldn’t help but gush over the cute pair. “Looking good you two!!” one person commented, while another echoed, “Such a beautiful couple!” A third, however, shared a more emotional post. “Beautiful, Lauren! Pregnancy suits you so well,” they wrote. “I have also miscarried 2x and had infertility issues, so I understand how much more precious it is when you carry and give birth to your baby after such a painful, heartbreaking loss. I know you will be wonderful parents and that your little one is very lucky to have you for her parents. God bless you all!”
On May 20, Josiah, 23, and Lauren, 20, revealed she was pregnant again after suffering a heartbreaking miscarriage. “We are so excited to announce that baby No. 2 is on the way!!!!” they wrote at the time. “It’s hard to fully express just how grateful we are for God blessing us again with another precious gift! So, as we rejoice of the life of our second sweet baby, we also remember (balloon as symbolism) our other sweet baby, Asa, in heaven. God is so incredibly good!” They added the hashtags “#MiraclesDoHappen, #babynumber2, #rainbowbaby and #DaddyandMamaof2blessings.”
Previously, however, the reality TV starlet shared that this pregnancy has been difficult. On August 10, she posted some pictures of herself showing off her baby bump and wrote, “Life is such a gift and something I cherish more now, with all that we have gone through this past year. This pregnancy hasn’t been easy. I treasure every moment and I am reminded daily that life is truly a miracle from God. #blessed #lifeisagift #donttakelifeforgranted.”
Here’s hoping the rest of Lauren’s pregnancy is smooth sailing and their baby girl will arrive happy, healthy and safe.
