Counting On‘s Jedidiah Duggar moved into a house with his brother Jeremiah Duggar. TLC fans thought this was a sign that he wouldn’t marry for a long time, but it seems like that wasn’t the case.
Counting On: Jedidah Duggar Lags Behind Little Brother
Fans of Counting On thought Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar would try to marry their kids off according to age – except for Jana Duggar. But when Justin Duggar announced his engagement and tied the knot with Claire Spivey, that theory went out the window.
Counting On fans didn’t think Jedidiah would be the next to marry after Justin. But it seems like he’s kept a relationship pretty quiet until someone leaked their engagement photos. His soon-to-be bride’s name is Katelyn.
Not long ago, fans had a field day making fun of Jedidiah Duggar for his bedroom setup. Jedidiah and his twin brother Jeremiah got a house together and put their twin beds in the same room with only a tiny bedside table separating them. Counting On viewers wondered if Jedidiah moved out so he could have his girlfriend over without prying eyes.
Who Is Jedidiah’s New Girlfriend?
Counting On fans have a lot of curiosity over the new girl in the family. Since Katelyn went to public school, some TLC viewers held out hope that she would be a little less “Duggarish.” The 22-year-old did go to public school for a while, but then they switched to homeschool in 2012 when she was only 14 years old.
Katelyn doesn’t have the same parental background as Jedidiah does. In fact, she has a stepmother. And she only has one sister, who is a pretty odd thing for families in the IBLP belief system. They go to a lot of conferences around these beliefs, and that’s likely where they met the Duggar family.
Counting On parents Jim Bob and wife Michelle likely approve, or Jedidiah Duggar wouldn’t court her. But so far, there haven’t been any announcements or anyone letting the public know about their upcoming wedding on April 3, 2021.
Counting On: Marrying Off Another Child
Like his almost-wife, Jedidiah Duggar is also 22. This age is actually pretty old according to Duggar standards. For instance, Joseph Duggar’s wife Kendra Duggar is 22, and they already have three children, so Jedidiah is a little behind.
Jim Bob Duggar and wifey Michelle Duggar love marrying off their kids. And it seems like the younger they can marry them off – the better. Counting On watchers didn’t like that they let Justin Duggar enter into an engagement before he was 18, but Jedidiah’s situation seems a little better.
Katelyn is from Arizona, and it’s unclear if they plan on moving there or if she would move to Arkansas. It’s most likely that she will move to be with Jedidiah Duggar since his work is there.
