Kendra Caldwell Duggar: No Longer a Teen Mom!!

by at .

Willing Duggar bride Kendra Caldwell, a.k.a. the wife of Joseph Duggar, celebrated a personal milestone over the weekend.

Turning 20 years old, the mother of one was feted by family and friends in what we can only assume was a wild b-day bash.

Just kidding.

The couple is extremely private, compared to his siblings - so much so that fans have wondered if Joe and Kendra are hiding something.

Neither of them has an Instagram page, and for the most part, they tend to keep to themselves (besides the whole reality TV thing).

From the moment he bumped out Jedidiah and claimed Kendra has his own, though, Joseph has been smitten with his fair maiden.

"There was something special about this girl," he wrote in a blog post describing their story (omitting that he stole his brother's girl).

"From the time of our very first long and in-depth conversation, I could see that we had a lot of common goals and interests."

In other words, baby-making.

"The more we talked the more we could see that this was the direction the Lord was leading us," the love-struck Joe added.

In other words, baby-making.

No, but for real. He goes on:

"We had truly become each other’s best friends! It’s amazing how similar our families were, but even on a personal level, we were very similar."

"As time went on, we realized that each of us had been praying for someone with the very qualities that we both saw in each other."

"Without knowing who the one was that the Lord might have for us to marry," he says, they still found each other.

How very touching!

The mother of baby Garrett Duggar also received a very special shout-out on Facebook from her famous Arkansas in-laws.

"Happy Birthday Kendra!!"  Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar wrote. "We are so thankful to have you in our family!"

Michelle and Jim Bob added:

"You are a wonderful wife, mother, daughter, and sister! We pray for God's blessings in this next year and we hope you have a great birthday!!"

We're sure she did. Has anyone ever seen Kendra not smiling ear to ear? Even when she was about to give birth on Counting On?

The couple tied the knot last September, then had a kid almost exactly nine months later, so safe to say Joe is pretty into her.

And likely still is.

The only downside of turning 20?

Kissing her chances of being cast on MTV's Teen Mom franchise goodbye! Just kidding, they wouldn't cast a reality star / celeb anyway.

Oh wait.
