Do You Know the Duggars? Complex Guide to the Large Duggar Family Tree
The Duggar family shot to stardom with their hit reality series, "19 Kids and Counting." Since it debuted in September 2008, the series rapidly turned into TLC's most favorite show, with millions of viewers.
After the show's cancellation in 2015, fans kept on following the giant family on their follow-up series, "Counting On," as well as on their social media pages.
Led by parents Jim Bob and Michelle, the Duggars currently consists of 19 children, eight sons- and daughters-in-law, and 13 grandkids — and counting.
It can be challenging to keep track of everybody as the eldest Duggar children are growing up, getting hitched, and having children of their own. According to PEOPLE, here's a comprehensive guide to the famous family.
JIM BOB & MICHELLE
The couple tied the knot in July 1984. They waited four years to have their first child, Josh. Unfortunately, Michelle suffered a miscarriage after getting pregnant again.
Believing the miscarriage happened because she was taking birth control and didn't realize she was pregnant, Jim Bob and Michelle chose to let God “bless them with as many children as he saw fit.”
Josh and his wife Anna got married in September 2008. The couple shares five children — daughter Mackynzie, sons Michael and Marcus, daughter Meredith Grace and a baby boy named Mason Garrett.
In April 2019, Anna revealed that they are expecting their sixth child together.
In November 2018, John David tied the knot with Abbie Burnett. He works as a firefighter and first responder as well as in construction.
