Lauren Turns 20

Wishing Lauren Duggar a very happy 20th birthday!

The Duggar ladies celebrated Jill Dillard's 28th and Lauren's 20th with a girls day out, which included a meal at one of their favorite restaurants (can you guess where they went?). If you are wondering who the "extras" are in the photo below, they are the Swansons (Lauren's mom and sisters).

  1. Nice way to celebrate. They even had a "kid's table".

  2. I wonder why Joy wasn’t at the celebration

    1. Maybe she was feeling tired, I’m sure she was invited.

  3. They only eat at 2 places, Marketplace Grill so they can get those free Chocolate Messes, or Chick-Fil-A. As usual, there's also a Baptist connection with Marketplace, if you dig deep enough into the chain of command. Just once I'd like to see this family patronize a business run by someone not exactly like them. I get the feeling this is always under Jim Bob's direction.

    1. They eat at other places too, they just happen to really like Market Place Grill.

    2. Interesting. How do you know that they don't eat at other restaurants?

    3. I think they get some big discounts at Marketplace Grill.

      Delete
    4. They go where they can get the biggest discounts.

    5. Why should anyone patronize a business with which they disagree?

      Delete
    6. @1:53 That's exactly why I refuse to eat at Chick-Fil-A.

    7. What's wrong with giving your business to people who support your values? I just saw that Target is selling a line of LGBT pride clothing for children. I'm going to start being like a Duggar and vote with my wallet. Adios, Target.

      Delete
    8. 11:49- I love Target and will continue to bring my business there. Yay, Target, for showing compassion and caring!!!!

      Delete
    9. Yes, Target shows so much compassion and caring to their women shoppers by allowing men in their dressing rooms and restrooms. The women who have been unwittingly photographed or accosted at Target since they started that policy are feeling the love.

      Delete
    10. @1:35- Please share with us the statistics, other than far right FRC propoganda, that support your claim about women being photographed/accosted at Target stores. FYI- Transgender individuals are no more a threat to you than anyone else. Furthermore, in all likelihood, you've shared a restroom or dressing room with a trans person in the past and were never aware of their presence. Sure, there could be a dangerous man dressing as a woman in order to gain access to a woman's restroom. That doesn't mean he's transgender. He could do this regardless of any policy.

    11. 7:08, you can do a Google search of news stories regarding incidents at Targets if you are really interested.

  4. Lauren is cradling her stomach in the restaurant picture.

    1. Maybe that's a reaction to eating her chocolate mess.

      Delete
    2. Looks more like she's resting her hands in her lap, as are the rest of the women in the front of the picture.

      Delete
    3. It may just be the way shes sitting. If she’s not pregnant believe me it can be very hurtful to have those assumptions after a miscarriage.

      Delete
    4. She could just have her hands sitting there. After a loss making pregnancy guesses can be very hurtful, trust me. Best not to say anything until the day they make an announcement

      Delete
    5. Please don't start a rumor based on a picture.

      Delete
    6. Yes! And 3 girls next to her! I guess all are pregnant with twins as both hands are on the stomach!

      Delete
    7. I think you may be right. We know that Jessa is having a baby & she looks like she is right behind her. If not it may just be her fluffy top. Looks like a fun day for all!

      Delete
    8. Just stop it. We don't need that sort of speculation.

      Delete
    9. She has her hands in her lap! This constant obsession with these ladies abdomens and/or gestational status is getting ridiculous.

      Delete
    10. It could be nerves...

      Delete
    11. nah, she's just resting her hands on her lap like a proper servent wife. I may not agree with a lot of the Duggar stuff, but as someone who has had multiple miscarriages, I can't imagine how she feels that everyone is calling she is pregnant every 2 minutes. I hope she has no future issues, but if she does, being asked every 10 seconds doesn't make it any easier.

      Delete
    12. good grief, most of the ladies were (jana was, and she's certainly not pregnant). it's just something that you naturally do.

      Delete
    13. Yeah. Sitting with your hands in your lap is a sure sign of pregnancy (sarcasm). Lauren doesn't need to be the object of this sort of speculation.

      Delete
    14. Good to know that "proper servant wives" rest their hands in their laps. Had no idea that was a thing. Did anyone else know that, or am I the only one not to know? Guess I'd better find a different place to rest my hands.

  5. Happy 20th birthday Lauren, you have become one of the favourite people I like to watch on counting on & Josiah has always been my fav Duggar guy. Have the happiest of days. Hope you are doing well & I'm sure Josiah will spoil you rotten on this your special day. You deserve the happiest of years ahead & I truly hope it is a good one for you.

    1. That's not super rare in the Duggar family, in case you hadn't noticed.

  10. Happy Birthday to her!

  11. Happy birthday Lauren!! Congrats on your blessing. I know you and Si are beyond excited and thankful!!! May the lord bless you on this new season of life!!

    1. Lauren has not announced a pregnancy, until she does making a comment like that is extremely rude especially since she had a miscarriage a few months ago.

      Delete
    2. You've got the lingo down!

      Delete
    3. Even though I’ve been 90% sure that they had a pregnancy announcement coming very soon, I don’t think it’s nice for you to announce it for them! 🙁 That’s their privilege!!

      Delete
    4. Anon 4.58. What on earth are you going on about? What blessing ? Please if you are trying to make the comment about this young woman being pregnant, how do you know that ? Even if you are a family friend the decision to announce anything is down to the couple themselves, & after a miscarriage they may not want to say anything publicly till after 3-4 months. Please do not start these awful rumours, they are extremely hurtful to a woman who has lost a child & if indeed there is no substance in the rumour how do you think Lauren will feel ? Please be more careful with your words & let’s all stop continued speculation about what women in this family are pregnant. Iv said it before, just because JB & Michelle had a multitude of kids does not mean all their children will follow suit.

    5. Looks like someone owes 4:58 an apology.

      Delete
    6. Or 4:58 could apologize for letting the cat out of the bag when it's not their place to do so.

  12. Happy birthday Lauren!!! She’s my favorite Duggar in law (aside from Anna!) and perfect for Josiah. Hope she had a great day!

    1. Totally agree anon 5.37. Lauren is my fav Duggar female in law. I love watching her on tv & hearing about her & Josiah’s life together. They make a lovely couple & I wish both of them nothing but happiness. Like so many posters have said Lauren is beautiful, she has a gracious happy smile that comes from her eyes (a sign of true happiness & contentment). Josiah choose well when he fell in love with Lauren & her parents must be proud of her maturity & how she has dealt with being thrust into the public eye. Not everyone so young & not used to such public scrutiny could deal with it as well as Lauren has.

    1. Rude considering the circumstances.

      Delete
    2. I think we should just take Lauren off "pregnancy watch". If she does get pregnant, she make the announcement in her own time and place.

  18. Lauren and Josiah are my favorite.
    Happy birthday Lauren 🎂🎂🎂!

  22. Happy 20th birthday Lauren Milagro Duggar, I hope you have a great day. Can't wait to watch you on season 10. Many blessings. Natasha B.

  23. Where's Jenny and Johanna?
    I can understand Joy not being there if she had other plans or something, but it's weird that we don't see Jenny and Johanna as all the other Duggar girls look to be there. (Minus Jinger of course being out of State)

    And it would be odd that just those 2 were off camera when they made an effort to capture everyone else at the 3 tables...

    1. Maybe Jenny and Johanna had other plans too.

  26. Congratulations on your birthday and on your new baby! That was just announced today (Monday, May 20th)! This is so amazing! Seems like everything is working out for you! And for the Duggars it's the 17th grandbaby and the 5th grandbaby this year!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Grandbaby #17 is coming this Fall! Lauren is pregnant!
    this is crazy! Joy just announced on May 1st, and now it's Lauren (on May 20th), and before that Anna announced on April 26th, and Kendra - on April 11th... This is like baby announcement season!!

  28. I dont understand why they celebrate Laurens birthay with only girls and women. Why not with everybody? Anyway, its their choice and its good to see they enjoyed.

    1. Yep, their choice. That's why.
