In 2008, TLC premiered a show called 17 Kids and Counting, which followed the Duggar family’s expanding brood.
Patriarch Jim Bob Duggar and matriarch Michelle Duggar are devout Independent Baptists. Early in their marriage, they decided to let God determine how many children they would have.
Within a few years of the show’s beginning, its title changed to 19 Kids and Counting. In total, Michelle and Jim Bob have 19 children, ranging in age from 8 to 29.
The children all have “J” names: Josh, Jana, John-David, Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joseph, Josiah, Joy-Anna, Jedidiah, Jeremiah, Jason, James, Justin, Jackson, Johanna, Jennifer, Jordan-Grace, and Josie.
Jim Bob and Michelle also have nine grandchildren, and they are already expecting three more in 2018.
Jinger, the sixth of the 19 children, just announced her pregnancy with husband Jeremy Vuolo, and the two couldn’t be happier. They revealed the big news on January 3, 2018, and are expecting their little one sometime this summer.
