The truth has finally come out.
In an exclusive interview with Josiah Duggar, the 21-year comes clean about what it's like to live life as a married man.
He and new wife Lauren Swanson surprised fans late last month by getting married in Arkanas, not long after we were led to believe that the ceremony would be delayed until December.
So, is this union everything Josiah thought and hoped it would be?
Yes, he tells the aforementioned tabloid.
Interviewed together for one of the first times as husband and wife by Us Weekly, Lauren and Josiah say they are "loving every minute" of wedded bliss, adding simply:
“Time has flown by."
That must mean they're having fun, based on a certain classic saying.
Duggar and Swanson exchanged vows at at John Brown University Cathedral of the Ozarks in Siloam Springs.
Unlike other members of Josiah's famous family, he didn't reveal the wedding date ahead of time, leaving followers guessing and wondering just when the twosome would make their romance official.
That is, when they would kiss for the first time, per Duggar family dating rules.
"What a joy it is to be husband and wife!” Josiah and Lauren told People Magzine at the time, adding to this publication:
"We are so thankful the Lord has brought us to this place and we can’t wait to begin our journey as husband and wife!"
The wedding was actually officiated by Lauren’s father, Dwain Swanson, while Lauren was accompanied by eight bridesmaids.
It was a beautiful scene, said everyone in attendance on this special day.
For weeks prior to their wedding, rumors circulated that Swanson might be pregnant.
This would a bit scandalous under any circumstance, to be expecting prior to tying the knot..., but for the Duggars?!?
Engaging in premarital sex is basically the biggest sin one can commit.
As of this writing, however, neither Lauren nor Josiah has confirmed (or denied) this pressing piece of chatter.
Lauren and Josiah started courting in January and got engaged in March, at the exact spot where her parents were engaged, interestingly enough.
Since their nuptials, the famous pair have turned its attention to making plans for the future.
One has to imagine that an impending baby will be announced some time very soon, perhaps as soon as you read this.
“It’s been especially fun to simply work on setting up our house together and just settle into life,” the couple told Us, concluding:
“We’re enjoying dreaming and thinking of the future together.”
