It’s been just over two months since Lauren Swanson married Josiah Duggar in one of those massive Duggar ceremonies attended by the entire state of Arkansas.
Obviously, Josiah and Lauren are still very much in the newlywed stage, but they’re also Duggars, which means the whole world is already wondering why they haven’t started a family.
Yes, rumors that Lauren is pregnant with Josiah’s baby began almost immediately after these two tied the knot.
Thus far there’s been nothing in the way of compelling evidence to support those claims, so Duggar fans went digging to find some of their own.
And apparently, they’ve already gotten pretty desperate in their search.
Josiah posted the photo below to Instagram this week, and some Duggar obsessives think there’s more going on here than meets the eye.
See the way Lauren is sidled up close to Josiah?
According to a coterie of imaginative conspiracy theorists, that’s not because they’re in love, and it’s certainly not because they feel the need to make up for lost time after being denied all forms of physical contact with one another for the first six months of their relationship.
No, these folks believe Lauren is concealing a burgeoning baby bump.
As far as we can tell, this pic alone is the source of all the Lauren pregnancy rumors circulating on social media at the moment.
Look, we’re not saying that she’s definitively not pregnant — the girl is a Duggar now, after all.
But we are saying the folks who are pointing to this pic as proof are really, really reaching.
To us, what’s far more interesting than the image itself is Josiah’s choice of caption.
“Can’t believe it’s almost been 2 months since I married my best friend!!! -Lauren #2monthiversary #marriageisthebest #amazonoutfit,” he wrote.
There’s a lot to unpack here.
For one, dude just quoted his wife calling him her best friend.
That’s some next-level insecurity, and we’re beginning to grow concerned that Josiah’s male-pattern baldness is affecting his self-esteem.
On top of that what the hell is “#amazonoutfit”?
Is he saying he and Lauren bought their clothes on Amazon? Is shopping online, like, something Duggars are only allowed to do once they’re married?!
Forget pregnancy rumors, we may have just uncovered something far more bizarre and interesting.
