We’re only five days into the new year, but 2018 has already seen a Duggar baby announcement and a whole slew of courship speculation.
We now know that Jinger Duggar is expecting her first child, but that’s certainly not the only way in which reality TV’s largest family will be expanding in the months to come.
Joy-Anna Duggar is also expecting, as is Joseph Duggar’s new wife, Kendra Caldwell.
And of course, several single Duggars are set to embark on courtship journeys of their own in the months to come.
Here’s a rundown of who might be next to leave the nest:
1. Jana Duggar
The perennial fan favorite. Fans have been hoping for a courtship announcement from Jana for years now. And thanks to her increasingly close “friendship” with Caleb Williams, it seems 2018 will finally be her year.
2. John David Duggar
This is another one that wouldn’t come as much of a surprise. In fact, it’s widely believed that John David is already involved in a secret courtship with a woman from Texas. No word on why he might be keeping things on the down-low.
3. The Pressure Is On!
Both Jana and John David are no doubt feeling the pressure to announce relationships. The twins will turn 28 this month, and they’re the oldest unmarried Duggars by a considerable margin.
4. Josiah Duggar
Many fans believe this is the year that Josiah Duggar will once again try his hand at courtship. Josiah is the only member of his family to enter a relationship that did not result in marriage, having pursued an ill-fated romance with Marjorie Jackson in 2016.
5. A Social Media Loophole
Some fans believe Josiah is the next to go a-courtin’, as in many respects, he’s more modern and mature than many of his siblings. Duggars are typically forbidden to have social media accounts until they enter a formal courtship. However, Josiah has maintained an Instagram page despite the fact that his relationship with Jackson has come to en end, leading many to believe that he’s using it to keep in touch with potential mates.
6. Jedediah Duggar
Smart money is on Jedediah Duggar announcing a courship in 2018. As many fans have pointed out, he was likely already involved in a romantic relationship that went awry.
