Double dating Duggars — say that ten times fast! While Counting On stars Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald had date night with another couple, proud grandma Michelle Duggar babysat their kids — Spurgeon, 2, and Henry, 10 months — and it looks like they had a great time! Watch the video below to see the fun pictures.
Earlier this month, Michelle shocked fans when she was spotted breaking a Duggar family rule — wearing pants! The pants-wearing actually happened a few months ago when Michelle and Jim Bob were vacationing in Hawaii, but the patriarch of the family just uploaded the photo on Dec. 1. Of course, after the parents enforced strict rules on their kids for decades, fans thought it was kind of messed up for Michelle to wear pants. “Is that pants on Michelle!?” asked a fan, while another teased, saying “Careful there Michelle.. you’re showing off a lot of leg!”
Just days after the shocking pic was posted, the Duggars took to their blog to discuss the fate of Counting On. For months, rumors have been swirling that the 19 Kids and Counting spin-off was canceled, so the reality star fam cleared up any confusion. Well, sort of.
“Counting On has been off the air for six weeks now, and we know you all are eager to hear whether the Duggars will be returning for a new season,” they wrote on Dec. 3. “We have been in contact with TLC, but at this time, there are no announcements to share. As soon as there is news to give, we will post it here.” So there you have it?
