Lauren Swanson and Josiah Duggar have been married for less than a year. There have been a lot of questions about when the two were going to start a family.

Many of the older Duggar siblings who have gotten married began their families immediately.

The new season of Counting On will begin tonight. Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson will be featured heavily as their honeymoon made the trailer. Of course, that isn’t all that will be discussed for this young couple.

Tragedy strikes

Over the weekend, there were rumblings that Lauren Swanson had suffered a miscarriage. There was no previous confirmation from the couple about her pregnancy at all.

In a new video from the Duggar family, Lauren Swanson and Josiah Duggar confirmed the miscarriage.

They found out they were pregnant shortly after they were married and then not long after, they lost the baby. Lauren mentioned wanting to share their story to let others know they are not alone.

Details about the pregnancy and how far along Lauren Swanson was weren’t discussed. Counting On may be airing something about what happened, especially since the initial rumblings came from confessionals with Lauren and Josiah.

What’s next for Lauren and Josiah?

Right now, Lauren Swanson and Josiah Duggar haven’t discussed their future plans. They have both been active on social media and appear to be enjoying their time together.

Both have talked about wanting children. This loss has stuck with them, and finally, they are sharing their story. Unfortunately, it isn’t one with a happy ending, but it is one that is real.

Counting On airs Monday nights at 9/8c on TLC.
