The Duggar family spent their Christmas singing carols with the stars of Bringing Up Bates.
The two families are as close as ever, but two younger members of these huge broods might be especially feeling the Christmas spirit. Lawson Bates tweeted a video of himself singing Blue Christmas with Joy-Anna Duggar and Jason Duggar.
As The Inquisitr reminds us, even a Duggar Christmas video can start a tailspin. Fans are now wondering about the link between 18-year-old Joy-Anna and 23-year-old Lawson. Bates was previously rumored to be courting Joy-Anna’s older sister Jinger, but the videos may be subtly breaking a new story. One YouTube commenter had the same hunch, writing, “Joy are you making eyes at Lawson? just kidding….okay maybe not.”
Bringing Up Bates star Erin Bates Paine wouldn’t be surprised if a Duggar-Bates marriage happens soon. In February, she told ET Online said that a wedding between a Bates and Duggar is “almost inevitable.” She elaborated, “As much as we see each other, I think there’s going to be an attraction somewhere. I don’t know where yet, but I think it’s going to happen.”
With the December 28 finale of Jill & Jessa: Counting On focused on the birth of Jessa’s son, Spurgeon, we’ll have to tune in to Bringing Up Bates to see if the Bates-Duggar courtships are anything more than rumors.
