Lawson Bates Flirty Comment to Jana Duggar Has Fans Hoping It Means Something

Lawson Bates Instagram

There has been a lot of talk over the years about a Duggar and a Bates ending up courting. The two families are really good friends and both have a ton of kids so it wouldn’t be surprising. At this point, it hasn’t happened so far. Now Jana Duggar’s new Instagram has people talking about if she could end up with Lawson Bates of Bringing Up Bates.

Jana Duggar’s Instagram

The first thing that started the rumors was that Jana Duggar got an Instagram. Normally when this happens a Duggar is already courting someone. Jana has not admitted to a courtship just yet. Her sister Jessa Seewald Duggar set the record straight, though. Here is what Jessa had to say.

“Haha! That’s been merely coincidence for some. Definitely not a prerequisite. She’s not in a relationship.”

You never know being on Instagram could help her. Jana Duggar hasn’t been able to find her perfect man and someone could just slide into her DMs. Jessa did tease that she will be happy to look through applications for her sister.

Lawson Bates causes speculation

Jana posted her first picture on Instagram and Lawson Bates happened to respond to it. He said, “So tech savvy,” with a phone and zany face emojis. It wouldn’t shock anyone at all if Lawson and Jana ended up more than friends. For now, it sounds like these two aren’t courting at all, though. Jessa says her sister is single, but maybe Lawson was doing a bit of flirting in that comment. He is one of the older Bates’ boys and is still single as well.

Jana Duggar has been very open in the past about how she has had a few people interested in her. They just weren’t the right guy. She isn’t going to settle for just any guy who is interested in courting her.

  1. If I were her, I would go out with him at least once. But, I think if either had been interested it would already have happened. The Duggars are rigid in their beliefs, Bates aren’t nearly so dogmatic.
    Personally, I think she’d find more freedom if she were a Bates. Just saying.
