Lauren Swanson was a fan of her husband Josiah Duggar way before they met! Although Jim Bob and Michelle didn’t allow television in their house, they opened the world up to their big family on the show 19 Kids And Counting. Lauren, who is pregnant with the couple’s first child, revealed on September 11 that she watched her husband “grow up” while watching the TLC show.

Prior to courting Josiah, she said, “I went to college when I was 16 and finished my Associate’s degree in Nursing at 18.” When a fan asked why she doesn’t practice Lauren answered, “I would have to take my boards exam to practice. However, really nursing isn’t my passion.”
