Sparks are still flying! Jim Bob Duggar gushed over his “amazing wife” Michelle Duggar while celebrating her birthday on Sept. 13, even giving her a quick smooch — much to the dismay of their younger kids. It looks like one of the boys wasn’t feeling their PDA at all.

If you listen closely, you can hear “ew!” Jim Bob even laughed after hearing the comment, before continuing to praise Michelle’s qualities. “You’re such a great mother. I love you so much. 52 and counting!” he said. Several of the Duggar family members gathered for the special occasion, including Josh, to celebrate Michelle’s birthday. Jana also had the sweetest things to say. “We’re so grateful for you, mom. I know we say it over and over again…You’re always there for us and have a listening ear. I aspire to hopefully walk in your footsteps.” 

John-David Duggar and Abbie Grace Burnett were also present, and he chimed in after Jana. “Abbie and I are so grateful for you. Pops always told me ‘if you ever find someone like your mama, you better latch on and marry her,'” he began. Michelle was visibly emotional as her family members shared their kind thoughts. Several fans also commented on the Duggar Family Official Facebook page to send her birthday wishes.

Just a few months ago, Jim Bob officially turned 53 on July 18 and they celebrated with a birthday dinner. In a photo shared to their Instagram page, the reality star’s growing family practically took up an entire restaurant, and a few of them weren’t even there! “Happy birthday to a man that wears many, many hats,” the sentimental post read. Jim Bob and Michelle have been married since 1984, have 19 kids together, and they’re still going strong!
