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.

Even though John made a major misstep, it might be forgivable. The Counting On star didn’t even get an Instagram until he and Abbie began courting, so he’s always been on the private side.
