Our hearts go out to Josiah Duggar. The Counting On star and his wife, Lauren Swanson, seem to be having a tough time ever since they revealed through the TLC show that they had suffered a miscarriage. Just a few days later, though, the couple was doing their best to focus on their love while celebrating Valentine’s Day. But in a heartwarming message to his wife, the Duggar son seemed to reveal that they’re still struggling with the news.
“Happy Valentine’s Day baby!” the husband wrote in a mini love letter to his bride on Instagram, sharing a photo from their wedding. “I wish I was better at expressing how much you mean to me. I don’t deserve you, you are the world to me. I cannot imagine life without you. I feel so honored to be your husband. Thank you for choosing me! I love you! 😘💕”
It’s a sweet note, but the part where Josiah wrote, “I don’t deserve you,” had some fans worried. It’s a fairly normal sentiment, but considering everything that’s going on the couple’s lives, we get why their followers would want to reassure him that he’s good enough — and that’s just what they did. “You do deserve her. You are both worthy of that love,” wrote one. Another added, “Such a beautiful love that y’all have! ❤️ You both deserve each other.”
We’re so glad that they have each other right now. And, more importantly, they’ve got the rest of their families to rely on, too. After they shared the news of the loss of their pregnancy, everyone pretty much rallied around them. “We love you so much and look forward to meeting your little one when we get to heaven!” Anna Duggar, who suffered her own miscarriage, told them on Instagram. John David Duggar and his own new bride, Abbie Grace Burnett, agreed, adding, “[We] will continue to pray for you both!”
