Lawson, 23, even tweeted a picture of him and his friend where Jinger could be seen playfully photobombing them in the background.

The two also reportedly had a date in Arkansas shortly after an event where the Duggars dressed as pirates for free Krispy Kreme donuts. Lawson later tweeted a photo of himself with the caption, "Back to reality… #NoMorePirate."

If the rumors are true, Lawson would be Jinger's first boyfriend.

This would be some happy news for the Duggars as they deal with the cancellation of the their TLC show, 19 Kids and Counting, and allegations of cheating and child molestation against the family’s oldest son, Josh Duggar.
