Even though she isn’t getting younger, the “Counting On” reality star confessed: “I’m not that worried.” She explained further:

“Yes, I long to be married and one day I think that will come, but I think … I’m just also just trying to stay busy with whatever comes along my path.”

JANA FEELS PRESSURED

However, she did admit that she was feeling “a little more pressure” to get married. In the meantime, she’s “making the most” of her time as a single woman.

The former “19 Kids and Counting” star explained: “I think if I sit there and I’m like, ‘Oh no, I’m not married’ and just [get] all worried about it, it makes things way worse.” Despite being single, Jana had people very close to her to look up to: her parents.

LOOKING UP TO HER PARENTS

Michelle, 53, and Jim Bob Duggar have been married since 1984. Jana looked up to them because of their capability to forgive and “make things right” when they have a problem.

She praised the pair for still having a long-lasting “genuine love.” Jana shared how her parents had the same love they had when they were young.
