Keeping up with the Duggars! This famous family is always growing and changing, whether there are babies on the way or couples tying the knot.
When the Duggars first hit TLC in 2008, their show was called 17 Kids and Counting, featuring Jim Bob Duggar, Michelle Duggar and their growing brood. By the time it ended in 2015, it was called 19 Kids and Counting.
The couple, who tied the knot in 1984, welcomed Josh, twins John-David and Jana, Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joseph, Josiah, Joy-Anna, twins Jeremiah and Jedediah, Jason, James, Justin, Jackson, Johanna, Jennifer, Jordan-Grace and Josie from 1988 to 2009.
The same year Josie arrived, Michelle and Jim Bob’s very first grandchild was born. Since then, Counting On stars Josh, Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joseph, Joy-Anna, Josiah and John-David have all welcomed babies of their own and may be following in their parents’ footsteps.
Joseph and his wife, Kendra Duggar (née Caldwell), told Us Weekly exclusively in March 2018, “We would love to have more kids if the Lord blesses us. As many as He wants to give us, we’ll be happy to take them.”
“We are ready to double the fun at our house,” the pair told Us exclusively at the time. “Being parents has already proven to be a greater joy than we had hoped or imagined. We love getting to parent together and are loving every moment and milestone. We are very happy that our little family will welcome a new addition later this year. Children really are a blessing from God!”
The Duggars rely on their relatives to help as they raise their little ones too. “I’m constantly going to moms who are a season ahead of me, like my own mom, and saying, ‘Hey, do you have a kid with this personality?’ Or ‘Have you dealt with this issue before?’ Or ‘How do you keep your cool?’” Jessa explained to Us in July 2020. “That’s something I always ask my mom if I feel like I’m getting frustrated over little things. I’m totally just in awe of my mom’s patience, for sure.”
In June 2021, TLC announced that Counting On was canceled following Josh’s arrest two months prior.
