The Duggar patriarch seems to have retained his boyish charm, as seen in a recent throwback photo.


The official Facebook page of the Counting On family, titled Duggar Family Official, posted an old photo of family man Jim Bob Duggar and his parents.

The photo revealed that Jim Bob has aged gracefully, and his looks today are strikingly identical to the way he looked as a young boy.

The throwback picture featured a much younger Jim Bob, posing with his father Jimmy Lee Duggar, mother Mary Lester and elder sister Deanne.

The young Jim Bob sported a classic bob cut, with a neatly trimmed front reaching his eyebrows and the long tresses on the sides covering his ears.


Standing behind his mother and sibling, he seemed to look slightly off-camera and sported a pleasant half-smile while posing for the click.


While he wore a collared black shirt, the matriarch Mary was seen wearing a light-colored outfit and a variant of one of the signature retro hairstyles – the bouffant.

Next to her stood Deanne, who left her long and naturally wavy tresses open with a middle parting. Unlike her seemingly shy brother, Deanne sported a wide smile.

Jim Bob’s father was seen in a classic gentlemanly look, with a light grey or pale blue shirt, a black floral tie and a dark-colored coat with a white lining along the seams.

The patriarch also sported a variation of the bob cut, featuring a side parting.


The family portrait reflected the iconic retro style, and over a 1000 online followers of the Counting On family posted their reactions to the image of Jim Bob’s old look with emojis and comments.
