Amy Duggar Gets Jinger to Spill the Beans on Lawson Bates Courting Rumors

A family member has finally weighed in on the rumors of yet another Duggar courtship. Amy Duggar responded to the reported romance between Jinger Duggar and fellow reality star Lawson Bates -- we knew we could count on that girl to get to the bottom of it!


Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's niece just got back from her honeymoon in Cancun, and one of the first things she wanted to know was what was up with Jinger's love life.

There has been mass speculation since her September 6 wedding to Dillon King that Jinger has entered a courtship with Lawson Bates, who is also one of 19 kids. The Bates and Duggars have been good friends for years, and they even have their own reality show, Bringing Up Bates.

The two were snapped in a family photo at Amy's wedding, and they definitely looked like they were side-hugging, a Duggar courtship staple. Then she photo-bombed a selfie that he posted to his Instagram a few days later, clearly indicating that they were spending time together.

So, according to ET, Amy asked the 21-year-old, questioning, "Girlfriend, What's this about you being in love?"

Interestingly, Jinger reportedly just laughed it off and said, "Rumors are rumors!" Yes, that's true ... but that doesn't mean they're false!

Even if they are dating, I don't blame Jinger for wanting to keep it on the DL. After everything her family has been through in the last several months (I'm looking at you, Josh Duggar), I can't imagine that she would want to invite more public scrutiny. Secretly, though? I really hope they are an item. Jinger deserves a whole lot of happiness in her life.
