Counting On star Jedidiah Duggar is rumored to be engaged to his sister-in-law's sibling. The  22-year-old, who previously ran a campaign for Arkansas House District 89, is reportedly involved with Kendra Duggar's sister Lauren, as reported by The Sun.

Rumors began circulating around the son of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar after Jed was heard speaking to his sister Jessa while painting a pumpkin in November.

"Are you going to paint one for your darling?" she asked. 

He responded and said "yeah", before asking "wait, how did you know?"

Lauren was previously engaged to Titus Hall. The couple shared their wedding registry on The Knot, which had their date listed as June 18 of this year.

However, they ended their engagement at the end of last year. Posts marking the big announcement on both the Caldwell family's Instagram and Kendra's Instagram were deleted. 

 Lauren's sister Kendra married Joseph Duggar in 2017. The two had known each other for years. Joe once said in an episode of the series that the couple spoke for six months before they entered into a courtship. He proposed to Kendra at his sister Joy-Anna's wedding to Austin Forsyth in May 2017. By September 2017, he and Kendra were married.

In The Sun report, an insider claimed Lauren, 20, realized she belonged with Jed, 22.

"Jed and Lauren have been courting on and off for over a year and kept things very hush-hush," a source told The Sun.

"Lauren seemed to confuse everyone when she got together with Titus, but it didn't last and her relationship with Jed became serious very quickly," they continued. "Their families are both happy for them and feel they're the perfect match, they're thankful Lauren didn't get hitched to the wrong guy."
