It’s been nearly 10 years since the Duggars made their television debut on “19 Kids and Counting.” The reality series started off following Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar as they raised their ever-growing family.

But one decade and a scandal later, TLC has since shifted the focus to their children’s families with “Counting On.”

Many of the Duggars were just kids when the show premiered, but now they’re grown up and having children of their own. Keeping up with the expanding Duggar clan can be challenging, so we’ve put together a simple guide to the newest generation:

Josh and Anna Duggar

Following Josh’s very public molestation scandal in 2015, the couple have been excluded from “Counting On.” But since their marriage in 2008, the duo has had five Duggar children together.

Mackynzie Renée Duggar

They welcomed Michelle and Jim Bob’s first grandchild, Mackynzie Renée, in 2009. She started off the tradition of giving their children “M” names. The little one was often featured on “19 Kids and Counting.”

Micheal Duggar

Little brother Michael was born two years later in 2011. The Duggar matriarch and patriarch were thrilled to welcome their first grandson to the world, according to their family blog.

Little Marcus was born next. In June, the third eldest Duggar grandchild celebrated his fourth birthday alongside his loving family.

Their second to youngest child, Meredith, was born in July 2015. The toddler is currently in her terrible two’s, but is looking more adorable than ever.

Mason Duggar

Josh and Anna just had their youngest child, Mason, in September 2017. Dearly previously reported that he was born happy and healthy at 9 lbs 1 oz. His parents called him a true “blessing.”

Since tying the knot in June 2014, the second eldest Duggar daughter and her loving husband have welcomed two children together. Their family is one of the main focuses of TLC’s Duggar revival show, “Counting On.”

Israel Dillard

Jill and Derrick’s first son, Israel, was born in April 2015 when the midwife was just 23. She ultimately had a hospital birth when it was determined she needed a cesarean.

And it wasn’t long until the duo announced Jill’s second pregnancy in January 2017. They welcomed their youngest in July, and haven’t announced any future plans for another Dillard baby any time soon.

Jessa and Ben Seewald married each other at a romantic ceremony in November 2014, and have since made their parenting dreams come true. Like her big sister Jill, “Counting On” star Jessa has also welcomed two little ones into the world.

Spurgeon Seewald

Jessa gave birth to their first child, Spurgeon, in November 2015 after a grueling 27 hours of labor. Despite the difficult labor, he’s now a happy and healthy three-year-old.

Henry Wilberforce Seewald

In November 2016, the couple announced that they’d welcomed a second son, Henry Wilberforce. The reality stars initially received some backlash for what fans deemed to be a “weird” name. But he seems to have won over the hearts of fans regardless.

Joy Duggar and husband Austin stirred up some controversy with the due date of their first child, according to earlier reports. The two welcomed their son on their nine month wedding anniversary, which left some fans speculating. But they seem to be keeping their focus on raising their new little boy.

Gideon Forsyth

Joy and Austin just welcomed little Gideon last month, Dearly previously reported. Their first born arrived at 10 pounds, 3 ounces — but it seems not everything went according to plan. Joy had a hospital birth instead of her preferred home birth. Regardless, she now has an adorable baby boy.

Jeremy and Jinger haven’t welcomed a little one quite yet, but they’ve got one on the way! The happy couple got married in November 2016 and are now expecting their first child. The 24-year-old is currently 21 weeks along.


Joseph and Kendra Duggar

Joseph Duggar and his lovely wife are also expecting their first child! The two tied the knot in September after just a four month engagement. It’s unclear how far along the expectant mom is, but she revealed that she’s having a baby boy.


The Duggar family is constantly expanding, and in another decade or so there will likely be yet another generation starting. But for now, these are the all the kids the original cast has welcomed so far.
