Kendra Caldwell Scandal: Is Her Sister SECRETLY Dating a Duggar?!

by at .  Updated at .

If you follow the Duggar family closely, or even a little bit, then you're likely aware Joseph Duggar married Kendra Caldwell last year.

After a brief courtship, the Arkansas natives exchanged vows in front of about a thousand of the couple's closest friends.

In most respects, it was the typical Duggar wedding - a chaste, dry affair attended by just about every fundamentalist in a hundred-mile radius.

But in one very scandalous respect, Joseph and Kendra were entered uncharted territory the moment they said "I do."

The problem, it seems, is that the 23-year-old Joseph Duggar was not the first young man to catch fair Kendra's eye.

Nor is he the first in his own family.

That's right. As we exclusively told you, before she began her relationship with Joe, Kendra was courted by Jedidiah Duggar.

Someone (read: Jim Bob Duggar) decided that Kendra a fine woman ... just one better suited to Jed's older brother, Joseph.

Apparently, they hit it off, because these days, as we know, Caldwell is married and already pregnant with Joseph's baby.

So the situation worked out all around.

Well, except for poor Jed that is.

Jim Bob was then left with a disgruntled incel son, and naturally, he decided to appease the 19-year-old with a comely maiden.

Of course, the Duggars live in the middle of nowhere and fundamentalist virgins of true virtue can be a bit hard to come by.

Which is why many fans believe that Jim Bob has returned to familiar hunting grounds and set Jed's sights on Kendra's younger sister.

Lauren Caldwell, seen below with Kendra in a scene from the Duggars' popular TLC reality series, just turned 18 this month:

Lauren has reportedly been in attendance at recent family gatherings with the Duggs, which wouldn't be that strange on its own.

After all, her sister just married into the Counting On clan.

But as commentators in the Duggar-focused corners of Reddit have pointed out, it's a bit strange that Lauren started showing up now.

So soon after her 18th birthday.

In a conversation about which one of the Duggar men will end up with Lauren, which seems inevitable, the majority of the votes went to Jed:

"Jedidiah. He couldn't get Kendra so he'd probably go after her younger sister," one user commented, as In Touch Weekly points out.

But there was some dissent among the ranks.

Another fan wasn't as certain, saying:

"Not sure who, but she will be a Duggar because her teeth are nice and straight and she has fundie hair! She is in for sure."

Fundie hair. We wouldn't have put it that way, but ... we don't disagree. Between that and strong dental hygiene, she's a keeper.

Others still had a different theory altogether.

"Lately how all the older guys keep getting with barely-legal girls, I'm gonna say JD," this astute fan bluntly stated online.

(The phrase "barely legal" takes on a different meaning among card-carrying members of Duggar Nation than with the general public.)

Since there have been rumors that second-eldest son John David is secretly courting, we suppose that's a possibility.

At the same time, one gets the feeling that the ten-year-age difference there likely wouldn't fly with Duggar fans.

We'll keep an eye on the situation, but for now, just expect a Jed-Lauren courtship announcement in the very near future.
