Love is in the air! Lauren Swanson celebrated her husband Josiah Duggar‘s 22nd birthday with the sweetest message ever, so get your tissues ready. The Counting On star shared a stunning and sentimental photo of the two locking lips on their wedding day.

“Honey, Where do I start? From the beginning you have always been my best friend,” Lauren began her post via their shared Instagram account on Aug. 28. “I never knew I could love someone as much as I love you. You are the one who makes me laugh until my stomach hurts, the one who calls me beautiful even when I wake up with crazy bed hair, the one who loves me even when I don’t deserve it, the one who cares for my needs before your own.”

Lauren also swooned over his strength and ability to motivate her to be the best version of herself. “You push me to do greater and better things, and have always been that encouragement to point me towards Christ! God is so kind to have blessed me with such an amazing husband! I love you sweetheart. Happy Birthday!” she concluded her post. 

Josiah and Lauren tied the knot on June 30 in Siloam Springs, AR, just five months after starting their courtship. The lovebirds have enjoyed a blissfully romantic honeymoon in Austria and some fans are already speculating she’s pregnant with baby No. 1. Adding fuel to the fire, Lauren’s arm is covering her tummy in both pics posted on Aug. 27, so people are eager for some answers. Time will tell if she is expecting a bundle of joy!
