If Jana Duggar has her way, she won't be a part of her family's hit reality show "19 Kids and Counting" for long, as she has reportedly expressed a desire to move out of her parents' home and focus on her education.
As per a new report, Jana, who turned 25 in January, has already started looking at Christian colleges as she does not want to continue living in her family's home as an "unpaid babysitter."
As fans of TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" know, the eldest daughter has often been entrusted with the task of looking after her siblings and doing the household chores. Jana now wants to focus on herself, especially now that both her sister Jill and sister-in-law Anna are about to give birth and there are chances she might be stuck "changing even more diapers" in future, reported OK! Magazine.
"Jana just turned 25, so she knows she needs to get on with her education if she doesn't want to be stuck at her mom and dad's house in Arkansas forever," a source told the media outlet. "She told her parents that she was looking at Christian colleges and would be applying soon."
The publication also pointed out that the Duggar patriarch, Jim Bob, was not happy with his daughter's decision and that he has tried to talk her out of it.
The Duggars haven't addressed this rumour in their family blog, and it remains to be seen if there's any truth to these claims, as Jana has previously stated she loved taking care of the babies in the family.
Dismissing rumours that taking care of her siblings don't leave her much time to get into a relationship, Jana said she loves being a big sister to her siiblings.
"I love working with children and I especially love being around new babies," she said, according to In Touch. "You might think I get plenty of that, just being part of this big family, but I also volunteer at a children's shelter to help entertain and visit with the little ones there."
Amidst all this, she also gets time to focus on her hobbies such as sewing, cooking, and playing the piano, violin and harp, Jana said. "I also love doing friends' and family members' hair and I enjoy decorating and helping plan parties and political campaign events. I love being the big sister to a houseful of siblings," she said.
