'Counting On': Are the Duggars Shying Away From Camera?

Counting On stars Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have been silent on social media lately. Fans started noticing that the family appeared more secretive about private matters — a far cry from their very public lives in the past.

Apparently, multiple huge events happened inside the family without anyone knowing. One of which is Jed Duggar's secret engagement and wedding to Katey Nakatsu. Reports also claim that some of the Duggars are hiding their pregnancy and want to keep it private. Is the big family is starting to shy away from the cameras?

Counting On: The Duggars Keen On Keeping Privacy?

Counting On stars Jim Bob Duggar and his wife Michelle barely share any updates about their kids anymore. The family is known for announcing big news in their lives such as weddings, engagements, and pregnancies.

So when news of Jed Duggar and Katey Nakatsu's secret wedding broke earlier this month, fans were somewhat disappointed. Both Jed and Katey's family did not share any details about their courtship prior to their wedding.

Fans were also shocked when Justin Duggar married Claire Spivey earlier than initially planned. The Duggar family did not make an announcement about the sudden change in the wedding date beforehand.

These led fans to believe that the Counting On family is slowly steering away from the public eye. It seems they are eager to keep things private as much as possible.

A Duggar Might Be Hiding Pregnancy

Another thing that the Duggars have been shying away from is the alegged pregnancy of Counting On star Anna Duggar. Apparently, fans saw Anna with a baby bump during Jessa Duggar's now-deleted video post on Instagram. Fans also saw her with a noticeable bulging belly in the first episode of Counting On: A New Life.

At this point, Anna has yet to reveal if she's indeed pregnant. However, she already announced last year that she does have plans of having her seventh child. On the other hand, Jessa Duggar's pregnancy with her fourth child has been publicly announced by the family.

Counting On: Is Something Big Coming In Future Episodes?

Counting On fans think that the Duggars are tired of living in cameras. Some even said that they can't handle the criticisms anymore. However, others think that the Duggars are only preparing for something bigger.

According to reports, the Duggars are preparing for Jana Duggar's courtship. Jana is reportedly dating a pilot named Stephen Wissmann. It all started when Jana was seen celebrating Christmas with Stephen and his family.

Reports also claim that Stephen attended Jed's wedding and was sitting close to Jana. At this point, Jana is the oldest member of the family to remain single. She's also a fan favorite so her courtship will definitely make a good storyline in future episodes.
