At this rate, we’ll never be done counting! Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have 19 kids — and now that their older offspring are starting to marry and have families of their own, they may soon have even more grandchildren than children.
So far, they have 12 “grand-Duggars” — with the 13th on its way! In the past, the Counting On patriarch has even gone so far as to say that he hopes that, one day, he has 200 grandchildren to call his own. And, well, if they keep up the pace, they’ll be there in no time. Get to know all of the Duggar grandkids below:
At seven years old, Josh and Anna’s son Michael is the oldest of the grandsons. According to his grandparents, he’s “so clever and kind” — not like they’re biased or anything…
Marcus, 5, is another of Josh and Anna’s sons, and he’s officially a middle child. We bet he loves having all those siblings!
Jill Duggar and her husband, Derick Dillard, became first-time parents with the arrival of their now-four-year-old, Israel. The little one is already a world traveler — and even lived in Central America for much of his life.
Meredith, 3, was born at the height of her parents Josh and Anna’s marital issues — and just weeks after her birth, her dad Josh checked into rehab. Nevertheless, the new big sister seems to be a happy kid, who is always smiling.
Jessa and Ben became parents for the second time with the arrival of Henry on Feb. 6, 2017. Clearly, the new arrival was an adjustment for Spurge, who “thought Henry was a toy” when he was first brought home from the hospital.
On July 8, 2017, Izzy became a big brother with the arrival of Baby Samuel. The little stunner was born to be a ladykiller — and was even smiling when he was a week old!
The family never stops growing. Josh and Anna welcomed their fifth child on Sept. 12, 2017. The TLC stars announced the exciting news on the Duggar Family site, writing, “We are so thankful and happy to announce the arrival of our new son, Mason Garrett Duggar. Both he and Anna are doing well. He arrived today without complication and we already adore him.”
Joy-Anna Duggar and her husband, Austin Forsyth, welcomed their bundle of joy ~pun intended~ into the world on Feb. 23, 2018. “We are blessed beyond measure with the arrival of our son, Gideon Martyn Forsyth,” the couple told People at the time. “Looking at our child for the first time was such an incredible moment! God is so good, and we are so thankful.”
Kendra Caldwell is the newest Duggar lady to become a mom! Just two months after her wedding, she and husband Joseph Duggar announced they were expecting their first child together. The newlyweds welcomed their first child, Garrett David, on June 8.
Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo took so long to conceive — according to diehard Duggar fans — that people were wondering if she was on birth control. Now, the 24-year-old is a new mom to a baby girl! Jinger welcomed her first child on July 20, and they’re both happy and healthy.
Jessa and Ben announced on Jan. 9, 2019 that they’re expecting baby No. 3! In other words, Jim Bob and Michelle’s 13th grandchild is en route. As for the sex? They’re not sure yet, but they’re hoping it’s another boy.
“From the day we found out we were expecting, we both guessed boy, and if our predictions are right then we already have a ton the clothing and accessories ready to pass down!” Jessa said in their statement. “At the same time, we would absolutely love it if we found out we were having a girl — though we’ve joked that we’d be starting from square one and might have to learn a few things.”
