The truth has finally come out.
In an exclusive interview with Josiah Duggar, the 21-year comes clean about what it's like to live life as a married man.
He and new wife Lauren Swanson surprised fans late last month by getting married in Arkanas, not long after we were led to believe that the ceremony would be delayed until December.
So, is this union everything Josiah thought and hoped it would be?
Yes, he tells the aforementioned tabloid.
Interviewed together for one of the first times as husband and wife by Us Weekly, Lauren and Josiah say they are "loving every minute" of wedded bliss, adding simply:
“Time has flown by."
That must mean they're having fun, based on a certain classic saying.
Duggar and Swanson exchanged vows at at John Brown University Cathedral of the Ozarks in Siloam Springs.
Unlike other members of Josiah's famous family, he didn't reveal the wedding date ahead of time, leaving followers guessing and wondering just when the twosome would make their romance official.
That is, when they would kiss for the first time, per Duggar family dating rules.
"What a joy it is to be husband and wife!” Josiah and Lauren told People Magzine at the time, adding to this publication:
"We are so thankful the Lord has brought us to this place and we can’t wait to begin our journey as husband and wife!"
The wedding was actually officiated by Lauren’s father, Dwain Swanson, while Lauren was accompanied by eight bridesmaids.
It was a beautiful scene, said everyone in attendance on this special day.
For weeks prior to their wedding, rumors circulated that Swanson might be pregnant.
This would a bit scandalous under any circumstance, to be expecting prior to tying the knot..., but for the Duggars?!?
Engaging in premarital sex is basically the biggest sin one can commit.
As of this writing, however, neither Lauren nor Josiah has confirmed (or denied) this pressing piece of chatter.
Lauren and Josiah started courting in January and got engaged in March, at the exact spot where her parents were engaged, interestingly enough.
Since their nuptials, the famous pair have turned its attention to making plans for the future.
One has to imagine that an impending baby will be announced some time very soon, perhaps as soon as you read this.
“It’s been especially fun to simply work on setting up our house together and just settle into life,” the couple told Us, concluding:
“We’re enjoying dreaming and thinking of the future together.”
The new season of Counting On premieres on TLC Monday, July 30th at 9/8c.

We sure will be!
Demi Lovato ‘Getting Better’ After Apparent Overdose — Visited Again In Hospital By Ex Wilmer Valderrama
Good for Wilmer Valderrama, who has now visited ex-girlfriend Demi Lovato at least twice -- that the public knows of, at least -- after she was hospitalized earlier this week in the aftermath of an apparent overdose.
The pair dated for six years before calling it quits in 2016, and Valderrama had been a driving force in Lovato getting clean and altogether sober in the first place when they were together, so perhaps his influence here will be as positive as before.
Word still holds that she's apparently going to rehab immediately following her hospital stay -- judging by her rapid improvement already, that may not be too far off in the future.
Let's just hope she continues to get whatever physical, emotional, and spiritual help she may need!

Mmhm. There is not much to say about the body on Kara del Toro aside from that she is definitely female. I mean, I have seen a number of people in my life who still leave me guessing to this day, and a few of them I have shared a bed with, but there is no doubt when it comes to Kara.
When it comes to swimwear, if you were really hoping to mask your gender then it would be ill-advised to wear anything that Kara does, ever. She is always showing, without actually showing, all of the parts that a person would usually like to keep concealed under sweatpants if they were trying to remain androgynous.
Really, I recommend sweatpants for nearly every occasion, not just for those hoping to conceal their genitalia. If you starch and iron them then they can pass as a comfy pair of slacks. But be warned, if you are a guy hoping to conceal his dongle then you had better be wearing a small pair of compression shorts, otherwise the whole attempt will be futile. Personally, I like to take the Patrick Swayze approach and exclusively wear pants so tight that they leave no question.

Kanye West has never been one to hold back.
Holding back actually goes against everything he stands for.
He's always been ready and willing to discuss so many of his thoughts and feelings, even if those thoughts and feelings are controversial, upsetting, or just plain wrong.
Remember when he said that slavery was "a choice"?
Those aren't the words of a man who watches what he says.
But in a series of tweets he made yesterday, he's opening up a lot, even for him.
Just be warned, the subject matter is actually pretty dark.
He kicked things off by giving some general tips -- he told his followers to "love everyone," "stop trying start doing," and to "break the status quo."
He also advised to "Trust your feelings don't calculate your perception."
Then, a couple of hours after that, he started to tell a story.
"I saw the Alexander McQueen documentary and I connected with his journey," he wrote.
"I know how it feels to want to take your life back into your own hands even if it means taking your own life."
So sad, right?
But if you're familiar with Alexander McQueen, it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise that Kanye identifies with him.
McQueen, of course, was a fashion designer. He had his own label, but also worked as the chief designer for Givenchy for several years.
His designs were unique, as were his shows, so much that eccentric celebrities like David Bowie and Lady Gaga used his work in their music videos and tours.
But, as Kanye mentioned in his tweet, he ended up committing suicide in 2010.
Friends claimed that he'd been deeply unhappy leading up to his death, and that he'd also been doing lots of drugs.
You see now how Kanye could relate?
"To make this clear and not weird," he continued after his McQueen tweets, "I've had these kinds of thoughts and I'm going to tell you things I've done to stay in a content place."
He followed up with "How to NOT kill yourself pt 1," which is "Avoid being around people who make you want to kill yourself."
We're not sure if that's all there is to it for him or if he just got distracted, but he hasn't elaborated any further on the topic.
He didn't reveal when he dealt with suicidal thoughts, but it's easy to imagine that could have been part of the issues he faced in 2016 that led to his hospitalization.
We've heard a lot about that time in Kanye's life, but the general consensus is that he suffered a complete mental breakdown.
Several factors could have contributed to the breakdown, like Kim Kardashian being robbed at gunpoint in Paris just a month before.
At the time, sources claimed that he was used to Kim being the strong, supportive one, so when she needed him to be strong for her, it was too much for him.
The anniversary of his mother's death was also right around this time, so that had to have been an added bit of sadness.
Kanye was on tour then, and he left a couple of concerts early and sometimes spent more time ranting about Jay Z than rapping, and he ended up canceling the tour altogether.
Immediately after that, he assaulted an employee at a gym, an ambulance was called for a "psychiatric emergency," and that was that.
It's been nearly two years since then, and though he's definitely had his ups and downs, he's never been that down since.
Hopefully his tips for avoiding those kinds of dark thoughts have been working, and hopefully he'll share more of them soon -- perhaps even a book!
After all, with tips like "avoid being around people who make you want to kill yourself," who knows what other gems he has in that head of his!

I do not know much about this Sweeney gal, but if she thinks gaining an online following is as simple as wearing a small tube top and putting her cleavage on display then she is…pretty spot on. Yeah, that is pretty much all there is too it for a lady. Sure, they can be more ambitious and try to actually do things, like shooting a bow and arrow only using their feet, but even that is pretty sexual. Whenever I see a video of the latest girl who has discovered this new talent all I find myself wondering is what else she is able to do with those feet.
So really, I think it is a smarter use of Sydney’s time to stick to the boob selfies. I am all about whatever is most time effective. If I have the choice between working one hour or three, but making thirty dollars regardless, there is no question as to which I will choose. And that is all She is doing here, getting those follows the easy way, and God bless her for it. There is a reason why she left that one overall strap undone.

Ryan Edwards was arrested on Monday evening, and as far as we know, he's still in jail.
And thank goodness for that, right?
After all, if he's in jail, he can't get arrested again, and we'd hope that heroin is a little more difficult to come by in jail than it is outside jail.
Because as if it wasn't clear enough already, Ryan seems to have a very, very big issue with heroin.
This whole mess started last year, when he was arrested for possession of heroin and sentenced to a year of probation.
Then, back in March, just before the probation was over, he was arrested again after failing a drug test.
Surprise, surprise, he had heroin in his system.
After that six more months was added to his probation, and on Monday, of course, he was arrested yet again.
Some media outlets are reporting that he got another charge of possession and some are reporting that he violated his probation for missing a court date.
But either way, it's not great.
A Nashville attorney has explained that if he has been charged with possession again, then he could be facing nearly three years in prison.
Even if that's not what happened, he's facing at least a year and a half from his last two arrests.
Considering that this time around, Ryan is being held without bond, it wouldn't be too big a surprise if he did spend a bit of that time in jail.
And according to a new report from Hollywood Life, Maci Bookout would be thrilled by that!
"Maci's heartbroken to see what drugs have done to Ryan," a source explains.
"She lives in fear that he's going to overdose and die so getting the news that he was in jail was actually a huge relief because at least he's still alive and still has a chance to beat this illness."
The source adds that "Now that he's back in jail there is hope that he might finally get the longterm help he needs, that's what Maci is praying for."
Just so we're clear, she's not wanting him to stay in jail out of spite or anything like that.
"While jail seems bad on the outside, Maci is praying that it will save Ryan's life and help get him sober," the insider continues.
Demi Lovato's overdose apparently really shook her up, and "she's terrified Ryan will overdose too if he doesn't get sober once and for all."
And believe it or not, another source claims that Ryan has those same fears.
According to this person, "Ryan can't help feeling like he'll never be able to get himself back on track."
"The past couple of years have been nothing but non-stop drama, and Ryan is just burned out and exhausted."
As sad as it sounds, "He truly regrets the day he first took heroin" because "it's really wrecked his life and everything has been downhill ever since."
"Ryan just hopes and prays that when he gets out of jail he can stay clean, and work hard to regain the trust of all those he loves and has hurt over the years because of his addiction."
If any of this is true, and we really hope it is, then maybe things will be different this time around.
And with Ryan expecting his first child with Mackenzie Standifer in just a couple months, they really, really need to be.
But on a more tragic, more realistic note, he's proven time and again that he has a serious problem, and it may take more than a little bit of time in jail to fix that.
Here's hoping he's able to pull through anyway!
PewDiePie has issued a mea culpa for being a misguided, insensitive, offensive moron.
Three days after Demi Lovato was hospitalized for a drug overdose, the YouTube star thought it would be funny to make fun of the singer and her situation.
How could it not be, right?
This is a young woman who has batted self-esteem issues and mental health issues for years... who had admitted to having suicidal thoughts at the age of seven... and who nearly died after a night of hard and dangerous partying this week.
Talk about prime material for a joke, right?!?
Yes, according to PewDiePie.
Shortly after news broke about Lovato's overdose, PewDiePie (what kind of name is PewDiePie?!?) shared a meme online that depicted the trouble artist asking her mother for money in order to buy a burger.
After receiving the money, however, Lovato turns around and buys heroin instead.
Here is the since-deleted image:
A couple of quick thoughts come to mind:
FIRST, this simply isn't funny. Like, at all.
If you're going to go out on an offensive limb to crack a joke, you better make sure it's a funny joke.
This is just dumb and non-sensical. (Why would Lovato need to borrow cash from her mother? The whole thing makes no sense.)
SECOND, what the heck is wrong with you, PewDiePie?!?
We weren't the only ones asking this question, as the YouTuber was forced to take down his stupid meme and then issue a statement in the wake of severe backlash.
"Deleted meme," he wrote to start his apology, which concluded as follows:
"I didnt mean anything with it and I didnt fully know about the situation. I realize now it was insensitive, sorry!"
You knew that Lovato overdosed on heroin (it has since been reported that the substance actually was NOT heroin) and you went ahead and posted that meme.
What misinterpretation about the situation are you claiming here?
Lovato, tragically, was found unconscious by her assistant around 11 a.m. on Tuesday morning.
This assistant then dialed 911 (listen to the call HERE) and paramedics revived the star prior to taking her to the hospital.
It is believed that Demi will soon head to a treatment facility somewhere far away from Los Angeles, but this has not yet been confirmed by the singer or anyone close to her.
It is simply what various anonymous insiders have reported.
In the meantime, practically everyone in Hollywood has sent his or her best wishes, as an entire industry worries about a young woman who has been so open over the years about her substance abuse issues.
We are all just praying she gets better.
And hoping she knows how many folks out there love her.
Jenna Dewan doesn’t ever disappoint when she’s in a bikini at the beach. Her skin looks smoother than the soft sand she’s strutting across. She’s perfection in it’s purest form soaking up some sun. And I’d be delighted to make her day in whatever way possible. It wouldn’t matter if she put me on sand dusting duty. I’d make sure every grain of sand is eradicated every time that she asks to wiped down. Because sand stuck in the wrong places can be irritating. My goal would be to provide some relief.
I feel lucky just being able to look at a woman like her. I hope she allows me to help her on her quest of whatever she’s looking for on the shore. She’s already found an impressive piece of seaweed and what looks to be some decently sized seashells. Maybe she’s going to make a necklace. I consider myself to be quite crafty so I know I can be of some use. Even if I had to swim past shallow waters to find the rest of the shells she required, I would do it without a second thought. Because it’s always a no brainer when a woman in need is hotter than bare feet on sun baked concrete.
