The Duggar Family Tree: ‘Counting’ all the marriages, kids and big announcements!


The world first met the Duggar family when they were just a clan of 16, featured in the 2004 documentary 14 Children and Pregnant Again. The supersized Baptist brood’s fame grew along with their family, eventually leading to the hit TLC reality series 19 Kids and Counting, which followed their adventures in home schooling, courtship and family expansion. 

After the show’s cancellation in 2015, fans continued to follow the Duggars on their follow-up seriesCounting On, as well as on their various social media pages. Led by parents Jim Bob and Michelle, the Duggar family now consists of 19 kids, eight sons- and daughters-in-law, and 13 grandchildren — and counting!

As the eldest Duggar kids are growing up, getting married and having kids of their own, it can be hard to keep track of everyone. Here’s ET’s handy Duggar family tree — from Jim Bob to Josie — tracking marriages, births and all the other big announcements!
