THE Duggar family became famous over a decade ago when they were featured on the TLC reality television show 19 Kids and Counting.
Now, the supersized Baptist brood family tree's got even bigger as the Duggar children have kids of their own.
How many grandchildren do the Duggars have?
The Duggars have 19 grandchildren in total.
Joy-Anna Duggarwelcomed her second child with husband Austin Forsyth.
the 22-year-old reality television star revealed the happy news to Instagram on Monday, August 24th.
Without further ado, let's learn more the grandkids.
Josh and Anna Duggar
Josh Duggar is the eldest son of Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar.
Josh and Anna began their courtship after meeting at a homeschooling conference in 2006.
The pair got married two years later in 2006 and share six beautiful children together – 3 boys and 3 girls.
- Mackynzie Duggar (born 2009)
- Michael Duggar (born 2011)
- Marcus Duggar (born 2013)
- Meredith Duggar (born 2015)
- Mason Duggar (born 2017)
- Maryella Duggar (born 2019)
Anna shared a tragedy that she had one miscarriage with the Today Show in 2010.
She decided to go public with her miscarriage as she believes that it's a common tragedy for many women.
About 10 to 20 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Jill Duggar Dillard and Derick Dillard
Jill is the fourth Duggar child and she's a rebellious one.
Jill got married to Derick Dillard in 2014 and share two little boys together.
- Israel Dillard (born 2015)
- Samuel Dillard (born 2017)
Fans suspected that Jill was pregnant with another child when they spotted a "big bro" shirt.
Jill shut that down quickly and said that Sam insisted on wearing his older brother Israel's shirt.
The couple has been enjoying their "little family" time together as their feud with Jill's parents rages on.
Jill and Derick, 31, have been keeping their distance from her parents since Derick told The Sun exclusively they are banned from the family compound when Jim Bob is not there.
Derick claimed Jim Bob, 54, withheld compensation from their appearances on the family’s reality show, Counting On.
Jessa Duggar Seewald and Ben Seewald
Jessa is the fifth Duggar child and she's arguably the star of TLC's reality show Counting On, especially after Jill quit the show.
Jessa took part in the pregnancy palooza that seemed to strike the adult Duggar kids in 2019.
She shares three little children with her husband Ben Seewald – two boys and one girl.
1. Spurgeon Seewald (born 2015)
2. Henry Seewald (born 2017)
3. Ivy Seewald (born 2019)
Recently, Jessa was slammed by fans for letting her daughter Ivy, 1, stand on a window sill.
Joy-Anna Duggar Forysth and Austin Forysth
Joy-Anna is one of the younger adult Duggar children who got married and had a child shortly after.
The pair shares two children, Gideon Forsyth (born 2018), and Evelyn Mae (born 2020).
Sadly, Joy-Anna miscarried in 2019 at 20 weeks along during her second pregnancy.
Joy-Anna Duggar opened up about learning of her miscarriage while 20 weeks pregnant, recalling that she "broke down crying" during the season 11 premiere of Counting On.
Joseph and Kendra Duggar
Kendra Duggar explained during an episode of Counting On that she sometimes still feels too young to have a family already.
But at the age of 22, she has three children with husband Joseph Duggar.
- Garrett Duggar (born 2018)
- Addison Duggar (born 2019)
- Brooklyn Praise (born 2021)
Jinger Duggar Vuolo and Jeremy Vuulo
Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo had a fairly quick courtship before they got married.
While that's not uncommon in the Duggar family, since no one technically "dates," they did take a little more time to have their daughter, Felicity.
Jinger is expecting a baby girl in November of this year after experiencing a miscarriage in November 2019.
- Felcitiy Vuolo (born 2018)
- Evangeline Jo (November 2020)
The couple recently took down all of their posts from their podcast Hope We Hold's Instagram and said they were taking a "break" from their podcast to "work on their marriage."
Josiah and Lauren Duggar
Josiah and Lauren went through an early pregnancy loss.
The baby angle was named Asa Duggar.
Lauren later got pregnant a second time and the pair welcomed their daughter, Bella, in November 2019.

John-David and Abbie Duggar
John-David Duggar married his wife Abbie in November 2018.
A year later, the pair announced that they were expecting a baby girl, Grace Annette Duggar!
A post shared by John and Abbie (@johnandabbie)
Grace was born on Jan. 7, 2020.
"She is a beautiful gift from God. We are so blessed the Lord has given her to us. It’s still surreal to know that we are really parents but it’s a great new adventure that we are excited to take on together," John-David and Abbie told Us Weekly of their new addition.
Why did TLC suspend 19 Kids and Counting?
19 Kids and Counting ran for seven years from 2008, until it was canceled in 2015.
The show was TLC's most popular, averaging 2.3 million viewers per new episode in Season 10.
On May 22, 2015, TLC suspended the series when the Duggars' eldest son Josh publicly apologized for having "acted inexcusably" following reports that he molested five girls, including some of his sisters, by fondling them.
These events occurred in 2002 and 2003, when he was 14 and 15, and prior to the beginning of the show.
The show was officially canceled in July 2015 and would not resume production.
The spin-off show, Counting On, premiered in December 2015 and the ninth season premiered February 11, 2019.
