Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar celebrated their very own Joseph with a heartwarming shout out on his 25th birthday.


For the Duggar’s, family is everything, so it was no surprise when the clan went out of their way to celebrate Joseph on his special day.

On Monday, the family took to their official Instagram to mark Joseph 25th birthday with a series of photos, per Inquisitr. 

The several images shared depicted how Joseph had evolved from a teenager to a proud family man with two lovely kids.


The first snapshot showed Joseph holding his son Garret while Kendra sites on their daughter Addison. The accompanying caption read:

“Happy 25th birthday, Joseph! We praise God for you! You love God and your family, and have invested in the lives of so many young men over the years, including your brothers!”


They went on to praise his dedication in school, bible college, and ministry. The sweet post ended with the family assuring Joseph that God has great things for him before telling him how much they love him.

Joseph’s wife, Kendra, also joined in the celebration with a heartwarming photo of Joe doting on their newborn Addison. 


In the comments section of both posts, several family members wished, including his sister-in-law, Anna Duggar.

Joseph is the seventh of the Duggar’s nineteen children, and he tied the knot to Kendra in 2017, as revealed by ET Online. Their first child, Garrett, was welcome in June 2018 while Addison was born in November 2019.


Given that Joseph is the middle child, not much is known about how. However, The List points out that Joseph attended a men’s Christian training academy named ALERT.

Despite being one of the most responsive and gentle Duggar children, Joseph has had his fair share of being rebellious.


According to reports, Joe broke the family tradition of being homeschooled and went to Crown College to major in Biblical Studies in 2016.

As regards his marriage to Kendra, Hollywood Gossip reports there are rumors that Joseph stole her from his brother Jedidiah. A former employee of the family revealed this information to the publication saying Jedidiah and Kendra courted first.

However, Joseph took an interest in her and bumped Jedidiah out of the race. CheatSheet reports otherwise, as Joseph said that he observed Kendra at church for a while before approaching her for a relationship.
