He just reached another milestone! Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s son Justin turned 16 on Nov. 15, and the family shared a sentimental message to celebrate his birthday. Fans are blown away by how grown up Justin looks in the new photo shared to the brood’s official Facebook page.

“Happy birthday, Justin! You are 16 now! We remember the day you were born like it was yesterday,” the post read. “So thankful for you and how you are growing into a strong man of God! We wish you a very happy birthday!” The Duggars shared several throwback photos of Justin spending time with his siblings. Fans were even treated to a few snaps from the days he had braces. In the most current photo shared, Justin is all smiles while enjoying his delicious chocolate dessert for the special occasion. “Birthday boy with his birthday treat! Happy Birthday Justin,” they wrote.

“Such a handsome boy!” one fan commented. “Wow he looks so grown up here,” another added, while a third noted: “Happy Birthday Justin! You are definitely a splitting image of your dad.” Justin previously revealed that he hopes to be a mechanic when he grows up and he’s got the skills to make it happen! Ben Seewald, 23, let Justin and his brother Jackson, 14, get some practice under the hood by changing the oil in his car on a previous episode of Counting On. “Justin was my little buddy growing up,” Jessa Duggar gushed during her confessional. “He’s just really close to me and I think he feels a special connection to Ben in that way too.”

Another fun fact: Justin was one of Jessa, 26, and Ben’s main chaperones when they first started courting! “He even made us breakfast on several occasions,” Ben said on the same episode back in 2016 and Justin hilariously muttered, “Oh mercy.” Now, fans can’t wait for the next update on Justin!
