“Happy birthday to my sweetheart!!! He is such a tender, kind, thoughtful, sweet husband to me, and I am so grateful for his constant companionship!” she said at the time.
However, on the day of Abbie’s birthday, John didn’t do the same for her.
Despite John’s massive husband fail, his parents managed to wish Abbie a happy birthday, not once but twice! The family tweeted, “Happy birthday Abbie! What a wonderful addition to the family you are! We are so thankful for you! John has truly met his soulmate in you. We hope you have a wonderful birthday and a blessed year!”
Michelle and Jim Bob then shared photos on their Facebook page and wrote, “You are a true ‘glitter girl’ and you’ve added so much sparkle to all of our lives! We hope you have a wonderful birthday and a blessed year!”
Even John’s sister-in-law Lauren gave Abbie a shout out on her Instagram story. She shared a pic with Abbie and John David, as well as her husband Josiah, and Joseph and Kendra Duggar, and wished her a happy birthday.
