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 and Joy-Anna 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.”
The couple, who tied the knot in September 2017, welcomed their honeymoon baby Garrett nine months later and announced in April 2019 that they are expecting their second child together.
“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!”

Another Little One!
Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo exclusively confirmed to Us on July 19, 2018, that they welcomed their first child together. “God is so kind. Jinger gave birth to Felicity Nicole Vuolo this morning at 4:37 a.m.,” Vuolo told Us in a statement. “Felicity weighs 8 lbs and 3 oz, and is 19.5 inches long. Both mom and baby are healthy, doing great, and resting well. We are very thankful for her safe arrival and look forward to life as parents!”
“I wasn’t super nervous until Joy had her baby and then I thought, ‘Oh my. What if I have a 10-pounder?’” Jinger, who married Vuolo in November 2016, told Us of being pregnant with her first child. “That’s probably the only thing that makes me nervous, is just thinking of the size of the baby and going through labor, but at this point I’m trying not to think about that. I’m trying to just enjoy the pregnancy, and I know that when that baby comes I’m going to be super excited to see it.”

Kendra, who married Joseph Duggar in September 2017, is glad she’s been able to experience pregnancy with her sisters-in-law. “I think going through pregnancy with Joy and Jinger has been just a really unique experience just getting to share all of the different … just different changes that your body makes as you’re going through pregnancy and being able to share those with each other and just talk about them and encourage each other and whatever it is, it’s definitely been nice,” she told Us.
