‘Counting On’ Star Jessa Seewald Reveals Her Sister Jana Duggar’s Current Relationship Status After Jana (Finally) Joins Instagram

“I’ll be hawking Flat Tummy Tea and FitFabFun boxes in no time!”

Jana Duggar has finally joined Instagram– and she didn’t even have to begin a courtship with a random guy to do it!

The Counting On star officially joined social media on Thursday, making her the very first Duggar Family member to get an Instagram account before entering a courtship. Previously, all of the Duggar kids only got on social media after they began courting, and all of the Duggars who aren’t in relationships don’t have accounts.

Of course, this caused fans to (once again) ask Jana and her siblings if Jana’s new tech-savvy status meant that she was now in a courtship. (As ‘Counting On’ fans know, poor Jana has been ridiculed for years by fans and even her own father for not jumping into courtship/marriage/baby-making at a young age like her siblings.)

Jana’s sister Jessa Seewald was happy to set the record straight on Jana’s current relationship status.

“That’s been merely [a] coincidence for some, definitely not a prerequisite,” Jessa told a fan who stated that Duggars only get social media when they are in a courtship.

She then clarified that Jana is still a single lady.

“[Jana] is not in a relationship,” Jessa wrote. “But if anyone is interested, please send all applications to me. I will check them out thoroughly.”

“I’m makin’ you a Tinder account, girl!”

Jana turns 29 this week (as does her twin brother John-David), and is currently the only Duggar daughter over the age of 18 who is unmarried. Three of the Duggar boys— 20-year-old twin JeremiahJedidiah and 18-year-old Jason are also still single.

Speculation as to why Jana has remained unmarried, despite the fact that all of her of-age younger sisters have said “I do” has been happening for years. Jana has never directly addressed any of the rumors that have circulated about her love life (or lack thereof). Now that she has an Instagram account, however, she will be able to directly respond to her fans’ question, if she wants to!

  1. I think it may also just be possible that Jana doesn’t want a big family. She’s been raising a huge family her whole childhood and adult life – why would she want to do that all over again? She doesn’t believe in contraception so this is would be a foolproof way to prevent a horde of babies.

    Plus I’m sure after seeing all the other husbands her sisters have, she’s more inclined to wait (although I do think Jessa and Jinger’s husbands are nice guys).

    They’ve been raised in a cult. They all probably have issues with real life out side of their father and mother’s strange cult life style. Nothing about the family is normal. I feel bad for all of those kids.

    1. I disagree, Jana can do whatever she wants to do, of she wants to wait she can. The right men will come for her, in the meantime she is trusting God that she will choose the right man, a man of god

    2. Jana was never molested. When all other girls married, they stupidly revealed all four of them-Jessa, Jill, Jinger and Joy (who was FIVE at the time when it happened) were his victims. But they don’t believe they are, it’s the “media”.

  3. “she will be able to directly respond to her fans’ question, if she wants to”

    Suuuuure she will, or Jessa will just continue to answer the questions for her.

  4. It’s really sad that she as a GROWN UP WOMAN needed so much time to convince her dad to let her have an Instagram account. Like it’s obvious he still considers himself her authority. (Btw, the Bates girls usually got an account few months before they started courting (I think with Josie it was about a year) so WHO KNOWS, I hope he is a good guy if he exists)

    1. The most recent Bates girls got them at 18 – Katie has one now and there’s no sign she’s dating let alone courting (the Bates also have let the girls date)

      1. I do think Katie won’t be single for long. They will soon find her a man. Lawson will remain single except if the rumors he got with Jana are true but they know each other for so long, it would have just been an act of desperation.

        Btw, anyone saw Jill’s live video of Derick being a dick to her?! I mean, I’m not surprised but this guy is really a jerk!

  5. Jana Duggar is my favorite Duggar on the show,God has a plan for your life Jana Duggar and God bless you and may the Lord be with you Always

    She is such a lovly young lady, people gripe when the kids marry young and they wonder whats wrong with someone who has not gotten at a healthy, normal age. She also might NOT want to get married

  7. She actually has answered it before. She said she’s still single because she’s waiting for the right man and doesn’t want to settle and jump into a relationship just to hurry up and get married.

    1. And I’m sure the example of her sisters’ and sisters’-in-law marriages (with the exception of Jinger, who moved away and seems genuinely very happily married) reinforced that view. If I had to see Austin, Joy’s husband, every day, I’d likely never get married.
