I am a quarter hispanic (and no I am not fluent in Spanish, but I wish I was). 5. My middle name (Milagro) is in Spanish, it means miracle. 6. Met the Duggar family in 2010, at the ATI conference in Big Sandy, TX (so yes, I watched Josiah grow up; I remember him as the funny/talkative little kid😂). 7. I went to college when I was 16 and finished my Associate’s degree in Nursing at 18. 8. My secret talent is yodeling. 9. I love playing the piano and enjoy singing duets with my hubby. 10.

However, one of her fans took the message otherwise, misinterpreting the tone of Lauren's message. They wrote that Lauren seemed sad and advised her to give her new baby her joy instead of sadness. 

The "Counting On" star was quick to respond, explaining that the message was about support rather than her grief.
