It’s somebody’s birthday at the Duggar house! (Isn’t it always?) Jim Bob Duggar’s birthday is July 18, and many of his family members took to Instagram to wish him the best possible day of celebration. First, his daughter Jill Duggar shared a post earlier in the day, but other members of the family followed later.

“Happy Birthday Pops! @duggarfam 🎉🎈👏🏼🎊🎁🎂💞,” Jill, 28, wrote on her profile. “Love you and hope your bday is great! 🤗” Over on the official Duggar family Instagram, a longer message was included in Jim Bob’s birthday well wishes. “Happy Birthday, Jim Bob!” it began. “So thankful for your kindness, love, grace, and care for each of us! You are a fantastic dad and grandpa. Enjoy your full head of hair as the years continue to unfold! 😆 We love you, Pops!!! ♥️”

Oldest daughter Jana Duggar also gave a shout-out to her father in her Instagram Story and shared a photo of herself with both Jim Bob and her younger sister Joy-Anna Duggar. “Happy birthday to the best dad ever!!!” She wrote over the shot. “Love you so much!”

Later, Jinger Duggar made sure to post a special message for her dad on her Instagram Story, too. “Happy bday to this awesome Dad!” she captioned a photo of Jim Bob in a t-shirt that read, “Pops. The man. The myth. The legend.” (Do you think the family had it made just for him?)

While they aren’t full family members of Jim Bob’s, it’s worth a mention that Ben Seewald’s family also commented on Jill’s birthday post to her dad. They simply wrote, “Happy Birthday, Jim Bob!” but how much more do you need, really?

Fans in the comments of the official Duggar family post — which included a photo of Jim Bob with a grandchild as well as a shot of him and Michelle Duggar — had good things to say to the Counting On patriarch, too. “Happiest of Birthdays to an amazing man! May God bless your life today, tomorrow, and the next year ahead,” one fan wrote. Another person responded, “Happy Birthday, Jim Bob! Hope you have a great day and eat lots of cake! 🍰😋” We think it’s safe to say he’ll probably get some form of cake at a family party. The Duggars do love to celebrate special occasions, after all — particularly if there’s a camera nearby!
