In 2019, Jessa and husband Ben Seewald, Joe and Kendra Duggar, Josiah and Lauren Duggar and Josh and Anna Duggar all welcomed children. The baby boom continued the following year when John David and Abbie Duggar welcomed a baby followed by Joy-Anna and Austin Forsyth and Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo. Joe and Kendra were surprisingly pregnant again in 2020 with baby No. 3. They gave birth to daughter Brooklyn in February 2021.
Jeremiah Duggar and his wife, Hannah Duggar, announced that they’re expecting baby No. 1 in August 2022. “From spontaneous adventures and work projects over the last couple of years to the sweetest dates and then creating a home together, you are my absolute favorite part of every single day,” Hannah captioned a PDA-packed photo with her husband via Instagram. “God has blessed me beyond what I ever dreamed possible and I can’t wait to see you as a dad!!”
That being said, not every Duggar child was always in a rush to have as many kids as their parents. Jill shocked fans when she revealed in October 2020 that she used “non-hormonal birth control,” such as barrier methods, which is not condoned by her religious family.
“Growing up, it was ingrained in me that if you don’t have as many kids as you’re able to, that there’s something wrong with that,” Jill told People at the time. “But there was a shift in me where I felt like it wasn’t wrong if you decide as a couple that it’s best for you to wait.”
The TLC star added, “Children are a blessing, but that doesn’t mean that at all costs you should have as many kids as possible … I think you need to do what’s healthiest and best for your family.”
Jill and husband Derick Dillard are on the same page when it comes to expanding their brood, though. The couple were ecstatic to learn Jill was pregnant, but she suffered a miscarriage in October 2021.
However, that didn’t stop them from trying again for another addition to their family — the pair announced they were expecting baby No. 3 in February 2022.
“We are excited to announce that God has answered our prayers and we are expecting our rainbow baby due July 2022!” they revealed on their family blog. “We are so thankful for a healthy baby and pregnancy so far, and we look forward to finding out the gender soon!”
They then opened up about Jill’s devastating miscarriage in their 2022 blog post. “Ever since we were devastated last fall by the miscarriage of our sweet baby, River Bliss, we have prayed that, if it was God’s will, he would bless us with another baby,” Jill and Derick added.
The couple, who already share sons Israel and Samuel, later welcomed son Frederick “Freddy” Michael Dillard on July 7, officially making them a family of five.
