She’s a hot mama! Counting On fans regularly praise Lauren Swanson for her stunning sense of style — even while she’s been dressing for two — and when she stepped out for a picnic date with husband Josiah Duggar, she looked absolutely incredible. Wearing a tight, blue minidress that showed off her growing pregnancy belly, the young mom-to-be gave fans the bumpdate they’ve been waiting for. The expectant parents have just over a month left until their due date arrives.
“Enjoying our late lunch/early dinner,” Josiah, 23, told fans as he and Lauren, 20, enjoyed their meal outside. Calling themselves #foodies, the couple showed off their Cracker Barrel meals. A moment later, the youngest Duggar bride rubbed her hand on her belly and chimed in chimed in, “She says hello. She’s kicking.”
Recently, the couple has been enjoying their remaining time as a family of two, showing off some serious PDA on Instagram. They are looking forward to the moment their family expands, though. In September, the young star gushed about her daughter in an touching Instagram post. “Feeling so extremely thankful to carry such a precious gift!” she wrote. “Can’t believe that l will finally get to hold my baby in my arms before too long!” The TLC star added the hashtags #dreamingofthatmoment and #rainbowbaby.
Just a few days before that post, Lauren gathered her family and friends together to celebrate her baby shower. The star told her followers that she was “so thankful for all the ones that made this day happen and came to shower [their] sweet baby girl.” The parents even gave fans the opportunity to join in by sharing their Amazon baby registry on their Instagram page. “It’s hard to fully express into words just how blessed and loved I felt by so many people giving and loving on our daughter,” the brunette beauty continued. “Everything was so perfect and thoughtful! It will always be a beautiful memory that I will keep in my heart forever.💗💗💗”
As their daughter’s due date creeps closer, though, Lauren and Josiah are also honoring the memory of the baby they lost. At their shower for their daughter, big brother Asa even had his own cake. On October 10, the young mom even celebrated baby loss awareness month by “sending love … to any parent who has lost a baby.” She added, “Losing a little life at any stage is heartbreaking and devastating and should not go unnoticed. For all you mamas, yes, even you mamas whose arms have never had the chance to hold your babies — you’re a mama!”
