Jim Bob is one lucky man! The Counting On star recently took to Instagram to give a shout out to his wife, Michelle, just days after her birthday. Although his message was seriously adorable, it was her slim figure that really got people talking. Watch the video above to see the pic — and to find out what people had to say!
Back in 2014, the 52-year-old opened up about body image and said she’s proud of her stretch marks and flaws. “We’re always going to find somebody skinnier than we are, somebody bigger than we are,” she said in an interview with TODAY. “Every girl struggles with, ‘Oh, I wish I looked like that or I wish my hair was like that.’ We go back to the point of who you are and how God made you — you’re not your sister. It’s all about being who God wants YOU to be.”
JB gushed over his “amazing wife” last week while celebrating her birthday on Sept. 13, even giving her a quick smooch — much to the dismay of their younger kids. If you listen closely, you can hear an “ew!” in the background. 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 her big day. 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.” Adorable!
