I'm guessing all those Citrus dresses are cheaply made with cheap fabrics. But unlike Jill, Kendra took the time to iron out the packaging folds and wrinkles.  She looks cute, even though her modesty tee shirt is way too high.

It's nice to be happy as a couple but they're going to be dragging at least a dozen children (at this rate) into a world where said children are going to be under-educated and woefully unequipped to deal with life outside the Duggar compound.

That's not entirely fair of them to do to the next generation. But I guess if they're happy.

Good point.  I'm the mother of one, by choice, and there is no way I'd even dream of breeding like the featured fundies seem to do.  And being pregnant with my mother pregnant at the same time?  Uh-uh.  Polygamists do the same thing, and while it's no way I'd want to live, I find myself intrigued and horrified at the same time, watching these kinds of shows!  

JoKen just seem the best suited out of all these Duggar couples, IMO anyway.

True, that. I also note that Kendra - unlike Lauren at times - has mastered the art of the cradling-the-baby-bump pose without seeming to be playing with her ladyparts. Just saying. 🙄

Haha, I agree!  Lauren needs to take notice.

When people were pointing out how JoKen seem best suited I was reminded of JB and Michelle. Those two are obviously in love with each other. However they decided to string along 19 kids into their fundie fantasy. It's worked out peachy keen for those two so far. Their kids and grandchildren are not going to fare as well once the TeeVee money goes away.

The grandchildren are essentially being set up for a life of poverty.

Looks like Kendra and her mom are pregnant together again. This would be the 9th Caldwell child.

Ma and Pa Caldwell clearly like the attention of Ma and Kendra being pregnant at the same time. It gets them on the TeeVee.

My husband and I were born the same years as Ma and Pa Caldwell. She and I were both born in 1980, and Mr. Sleepy and Paul were both born in 1977.

We got married much later, though, and only had 4 children before taking permanent measures to stop the baby train. We had our children in less than six years, and I have no doubt that without the vasectomy I would have another toddler and be pregnant again at this point. From that perspective, the idea that Christina would be expecting again isn't too outlandish to me. However,  also like me, she could just be sporting the permanently pouchy belly of motherhood. I know not every mom gets a diastasis recti, but many pregnancies in rapid succession make it more likely.

But her last baby was born in, I think, December. Yikes! Not that it's not possible, but her previous pregnancies were fairly spaced out (for a fundy).

If she's pregnant, (and that is an if) it gives the Caldwells an even larger platform. "Look! Our daughter married into the Duggars! And we are just like them! Come follow us on Twitter and Instagram! Visit Pastor Caldwell's church! We do missionary trips to Greece!!!!"

This dress would be cute if not for the white undershirt. I am not against ladies being modest, and comfortable in what they wear, but that looks like a CHILD’S undershirt, for a pre-pubcent girl who doesn’t wear a bra yet. I’d do a lacy cami, but the neckline isn’t even low (although Kendra is pretty short).

She looks pregnant to me as well. Either that OR she kept a pooch and is wearing an insanely big shirt. She’s very slender when not pregnant like a poster said above.

No idea if Mrs. Caldwell is pregnant. It's possible her body just didn't "bounce back" after the last child. The more kids someone has and the older they get, the harder it is to lose the weight.

It's not that unusual in big families where women start having babies at a young age. It's neither weird nor creepy.

I have a great aunt that is younger than my aunt.  My great grandmother married at 20 and was still fertile in her early 40s.  My best friend's grandmother was pregnant with her dad at the same time as 2 of her daughters were pregnant.

My great-grandmother married at barely 16 and had her first a year later. She had her thirteenth child 27 years, nine months later, the same year three of her daughters had babies (my grandmother's second). She had her eleventh child the same day the first grandchild was born. 

Back to topic: All the Caldwell females look happy, and so does Mr. Caldwell. I like Kendra's dress.

Kendra's sister Lauren has what looks like a personal ad up on her family's Instagram account (the caldwell family). I think the Duggars aren't interested in adding her to the family.  It's sad to me that it seems that this young woman's options are help mom with the children while living at home or get married.  I can't stress enough how much it bothers that fundies force adult children to live at home until marriage, even if they let the kids get married. 

Lauren Swanson Duggar's sisters are not old enough to marry.

You must be way off base, though, since their family motto -- per their Instagam -- is "faith. family. freedom." 

I mean, that's what the whole Duggar connection is about, right? Freedom! 

Yeah.

I thought the rumor was Lauren and Jason, not either of the twins.

That was primarily because they went on that Grecian missioncation and were in many pictures together (but not *together*).

I assumed it was a get to know you trip with Madi Nicole that didn't pan out. She relocated to Arkansas shortly before the Greece "vacation". Her and family seem to be Duggar clingers like the Swainsons. 

Does anyone remember Lydia of Purple and the ads for her daughters on the website? That's what the pictures of Lauren Caldwell come off as.

They got one Caldwell. Lauren has to look elsewhere. Maybe she can go court the other Keller boy.

I think it’s just the color of his hair plus the lighting. 

Is this a family portrait? Why isn’t at the very least Kendra included? Or is it once you get married that’s it? You are out of the family?

I think it was more common years ago when most people got married at younger ages and birth control was not readily available.  These days it is definitely unusual.  

But the big difference, (and where it does seem a bit "off"), is that in the old days women had "menopause babies" but the pregnancies were not intentional. These folks are still actively trying to get pregnant despite the fact that they are grandparents and already have large families.  At least that's how I look at it.

Did you notice they accidentally left a couple of holes for Kendra, Joe, and Garrett? If Mr. Caldwell moves left, there will be plenty of room for the Caldwell/Duggar squad.

And 81,000 likes.  If only 1% of that buys something,  Citrus and Lemon would get over 1000 orders, and all it costs them is a few free dresses.  This is the new form of marketing for the 21st century.

I hope it’s the lighting, poor boys looks like he’s going through early puberty and loosing his hair at the front just like the duggar boys do.

He does.  I know with my fair skin I flush easily because of the heat and it is not a sunburn.   I did some yard work this morning before it got too hot and I'm still red an hour later.

My blonde hair blue eyed  son & I are the same way with the flushing thing & our fair skin.  My son didn't know what it was like to go swimming with just his bathing suit on when he was younger. I  insisted he wear a light T-shirt too even after lathering him with high SPF sunscreen. He wore a hat as well.  

I'm glad to see little Garrett wearing what looks like kid appropriate swimwear instead of street clothes incl jean pants like his dad, uncles & grandfather wore back in the day.  (Makes me hot just typing that.)

True, but I am absolutely thrilled to see him wearing a life jacket that not only looks like it fits him but appears to be fastened appropriately.
