Family first! Lauren Swanson and her parents — Dwain and Lana Swanson — posed for a picture with her new fiancé Josiah Duggar alongside his parents, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar. Now, the families are being blasted on reddit as one user shared the photo and pointed out “Josiah’s pasty complexion” as well as Lauren’s dad’s red face, which they believed was because his blood pressure was “through the roof.”
Of course, this started a slew of comments that all picked up on how bad each person in the photo looked. One commenter said, “I just wanna reach through the screen to apply sunblock on Lauren’s dad’s face.” Another wrote, “His face is as red as his shirt ?? at least he’s color coordinated ??.” The jabs didn’t just stop there, either.
One fan thought Michelle resembled an “Oompa Loompa” and another noticed Josiah’s receding hairline. But they chalked that up not just to genetics but, “all the stress of being horny and not being able to do anything about it.”
Josiah and Lauren announced their engagement — after a short courtship — at the beginning of March on the family’s official website. They said, “We are so excited to announce that Josiah and Lauren are officially engaged!! We have prayed for many years that the Lord would bring the right spouses to each of our children. We have known Lauren and her family for a very long time and have seen how she has grown in her knowledge and understanding of the Lord,” the statement read.

I feel like the most blessed guy on earth 🌎… Lauren said YES! God definitely opened our eyes in his perfect timing to show us how we complete each other. The more time I spend with Lauren the more I realize how I can’t live without her. There’s no one else I’d rather spend my days and grow old with! #engaged #weddingplanningbegins
“She is a wonderful, caring, compassionate young lady, full of zeal for Christ. We are very thankful for her. We pray that their lives together will be full of joy and happiness and that God will use their lives for His service. We are looking forward to another Duggar wedding soon!”
The couple also announced the big news during a TLC video clip where Lauren gushed, “I’m very surprised, kind of speechless. It’s exciting to be engaged, definitely. I’m still surprised at the idea but I’m just looking forward to making [new] memories with you, Siah.”
