Johannah Duggar: All Grown Up

Share this pen


At the end of last year, Jessa Duggar marvelled at how much Johannah has grown up and fans couldn't agree more. Little Johannah was literally born on camera and fans have watched her become a young woman.

The 13-year-old was born on October 11, 2005, as Johannah Faith Duggar. She is the sixteenth child of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.

The sixth daughter in the family weighed 7 lbs and 6.5 ounces at birth. No longer a child, the teen is showing the world that she's all grown up.


Life on Camera: 

From the day she was born, Johannah has been in front of the camera. Her birth was filmed by the Discovery Health Channel. It formed part of a special episode of "Raising 16 Children" which was aired on March 13, 2006.

Since then she has appeared on multiple episodes of her families many reality TV shows including "19 Kids and Counting"  and "Counting On." She was just two years old when the family started their first reality show.


Education and Home Life:

Like her siblings, Johannah is homeschooled. When she's not busy with her studies she is expected to complete chores (known as jurisdictions in the Duggar family).

The specific jurisdictions she is in charge of has not been divulged. However, Johannah was expected to take on more responsibilities in the home after four of her five older sisters got married and moved out.


Buddy System:

The Duggars implemented a buddy system in their home before Johannah was born. Each older child was paired with a younger child who they were expected to look after.

The older child was responsible for dressing, bathing, and feeding their younger buddies. In 2009, due to the rapidly expanding number of children in the family, the system was overhauled.


Instead of individual buddies, they were now put into buddy teams. Each team was led by one of the oldest four daughters. At the time, Johannah was teamed up with her older siblings Jinger and Jedidiah.

Who does she look like?

As Jessa pointed out, Johannah is all grown up now but fans can't help but agree with her. Many have commented on posts of the young Duggar to point out how quickly she grew up.


"I can't believe how big/old she is! Isn't she like 5?! When did this happen?" said one person. Another added, "I work with 7th graders, so 12 to 13-year-olds. Some of them look like they are seven and some of them look like they are 18; it's such a weird time for growth!"

Other fans were more focused on who the young girl resembled. Some adamantly insisted she looked like her brother Josh who had been disgraced due to multiple scandals while others felt she appeared to have more features in common with her sister Joy-Anna.

Either way, this young tee is on the path to becoming a stunning young woman and fans can't get enough of her.
