Any kind of PDA from the Duggar family will definitely get people talking and Josiah Duggar is no exception. The 21-year-old is currently courting Lauren Swanson, and won't stop reminding fans how loved up he is. Not only has he taken to social media to show off his newfound feelings, but he can't stand being physically away from Lauren, either. Watch the video above and see what Josiah has to say about his "girl"!
All of this may not come as a surprise to Duggar fans who have been following Josiah and Lauren's relationship. The couple was caught getting incredibly close during their trip to the Waiouru Army Museum in New Zealand — hugging, hand holding, and even bringing their faces within kissing distance. According to Duggar rules, there is absolutely no tolerance for this kind of behavior before marriage. (Josiah hasn't even proposed yet.)
But these two have been friends for a long time which might be why Josiah isn't acting as reserved as some of his siblings — like Joseph Duggar who was uncomfortable putting his hand on Kendra Caldwell's hip during an engagement photo shoot — did during their courtships. In a joint statement to People, Josiah and Lauren announced their courtship at the end of January and said, "It's truly an exciting time for us, as we take this big step in establishing a relationship, getting to know one another even better and praying together towards our future."
In the same statement, Josiah also revealed that he not only found "a great friend" but he "[appreaciated] Lauren's Christlike character and tender heart."
