Wait a sec, is Lauren Swanson pregnant? Some Counting On fans think so! Last week, the newlyweds revealed they were on their honeymoon in Austria, and several already suspect she’s carrying baby No. 1. The famous family took to Facebook to share a sweet video of the happy couple, but it didn’t take long before rumors started to swirl.
“Sooo when’s the baby due???” one person asked on the social media platform. “The baby is due in eight months,” another responded, while a third chimed in, “Woohoo baby announcement here in about another four to six weeks.”
Si and Lauren — aka “Siren” — tied the knot on Saturday, June 30 — after just five months of courtship. The reality TV stars said “I do” a whole seven months earlier than fans expected, so their wedding date definitely came as a surprise. “What a joy it is to be husband and wife!” the couple said in a joint statement following their Siloam Springs, AR nuptials. “Our wedding day was absolutely perfect!”
Of course, quick Duggar engagements are hardly shocking. After all, there’s a reason they all tend to run down the aisle: So they can go make out, duh. Even fans are convinced the large fam rushes through their courtships because of their, ahem, urges.
One reddit user recently wrote, “Kendra [Caldwell] and Lauren said they were “surprised” about getting engaged, “which makes me wonder if the boys talk to Jim Bob about having feelings or desires about women, and Jim Bob doesn’t want another scandal so he goes and finds them a wife.” Other users quickly chimed in, adding, “I always had a suspicion of this too. Between Josh and Jill both having been quoted by others as ‘hormonal’ and ‘boy crazy’ respectively, and then their rather immediate courtships and marriages… it wouldn’t surprise me if Jim Bob uses his local celebrity status for that.”
The Duggars abide by a strict set of rules that includes no dancing, no holding hands until marriage, and definitely no kissing until after the wedding. Then again, JB and Michelle never courted… so break free, kids!
