Hot mama! Michelle Duggar has been sporting noticeably straighter locks these days, and we have to say, we’re digging her updated ‘do. Since the TLC matriarch was introduced to fans back in 2008, she’s had signature curly hair and bangs — but not anymore! Check out some recent selfies in the video above to see her new look.

Yet this isn’t the only change that the mother of 19 has made recently. In fact, she’s been following in her rebel daughters’ footsteps and wearing pants! Gasp. The pants-wearing actually happened last summer when Michelle and Jim Bob were vacationing in Hawaii, but the patriarch of the family uploaded the photo on Dec. 1. Of course, after the parents enforced strict rules on their kids for decades, fans thought it was kind of messed up for Michelle to wear pants. “Is that pants on Michelle!?” asked a fan, while another teased, saying, “Careful there Michelle.. you’re showing off a lot of leg!”

Most recently, pregnant Counting On star Jinger Duggar sported a pair of white pants with her growing baby bump. The 24-year-old took the fashion risk at church with her husband, Jeremy Vuolo.

As expected, fans loved seeing the mom-to-be expanding her wardrobe beyond the Duggars’ infamous long skirts. “OMG you’re in pants! I love it,” one follower gushed before another pointed out, “Pants AND HEELS.”

Previously, Jana, Jill, Jessa, and Jinger explained their strict dress code in their book, Growing Up Duggar, writing, “We avoid low-cut, cleavage-showing, gaping, or bare-shouldered tops; and when needed, we wear an undershirt. We try to make it a habit to always cover the top of our shirt with our hand when we bend over. We don’t want to play the peek-a-boo game with our neckline.” Oh, how times have changed!

Counting On returns to TLC Monday, Feb. 26 at 9 p.m. EST on TLC.
