Happy Birthday Michelle, it is nifty to be fifty!
Many happy returns of the day Michelle Duggar I have followed your family since day one, and I hope you have a wonderful day with your beautiful family, and also wish you many more wonderful birthdays. From Simon Wales, UK
Love Michele's hair style in the middle photo. She looks beautiful and so young!Happy Birthday, Michelle, and many more!
Michelle is not a matriarch. The Duggars are very clear about Jim Bob being the head of the family.
He would be the patriarch. Pa, dad. Matriarch. Ma, mom. :)
I wouldn't say Michelle is the matriarch either, I would say Mary is the Duggar matriarch.
Jim Bob is the patriarch. Michelle is the matriarch. Yes, Jim Bob is the head of the home but don't think Michelle doesn't lead in the home as well. They have worked together to raise a fine family. Jim Bob didn't do it all alone.
You do realize that Matriarch means the female head of the family and Patriach means the male head of the family. SMH
Matriarch simply means, the mother of the house or family. Not that she is above Jim Bob. Theoretically, both a patriarch and a matriarch can co-exist
@Annonymous 6:42--LOL!! And this is an example of ignorance gone amuck! These people will get offended over everything---sadly it's usually over big words they don't know the meaning of assuming it's a criticism.
There's no such thing as a female head of the family to the Duggars. They are very clear about their values and beliefs.
Amazing that she has remained so youthful looking, after having 19 kids.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MRS. DUGGAR!!
You know what they say- you really start living at 50!! At least that's what my parents say :)
So what should she be doing to really start living, now that she's 50?
Michelle your an inspiration to so many women, I wish you many happy birthdays, and know that I'm one of your biggest fans!!
I MISS SEEING THE DUGGAR'S I LOVE EACH AND EVERYONE OF THEM..I PRAY THEY WILL BE BACK ON T V AS THEY WERE BEFORE..MICHELLE HAS SUCH A CALMING VOICE AND DID WONDERS FOR ME..BLESS YOU ALL
Happy Birthday- At 50 continue to true to yourself.
Happy Birthday 50 is a great Birthday God Bless
AWW! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!! Hope that you have many many more birthdays! Hope that your day is great. Love you.
Birthdays are always special because they help to see how far you have come. You spread joy and positivity all around. May your birthday and your life be as wonderful as you are! May God's many blessings be poured upon you as you celebrate today and the years that follow too. Happy Birthday Michelle 💜
Michelle may be turning 50, but Mary Duggar is the matriarch of this Duggar branch. Please get your facts straight. Thank you.
Wow, what great pictures. In the one where Michelle had her hair straightened, it's so apparent that Jill looks just like her. It's harder to notice with Michelle's hair curly. I find it easy to see which children look like Jim Bob, and harder to recognize who looks like Michelle. Happy birthday, Michelle. Enjoy life! 1 John 2:24.
Happy belated birthday Mrs. Duggar. God bless
Happy Birthday Michelle
I have a different lifestyle and different views from the Duggars on many issues, but I like to always try and find something positive in people who are different from me. :) When I noticed how softspoken Michelle is with her children, how she corrects them kindly, while putting herself at their level, I've been blown away with admiration. I really like that about her and I wish to integrate it in the future when (hopefully) I have children. :)
Happy birthday! Mrs. Duggar, you are a precious woman, and I praise God for you!Ashley
Happy birthday to you!! Hope you have many more!!
Wishing happiness, peace and enjoyment on Michelle 50th birthday.Stay true to yourself and hold your ground.
Happy 50th. I think a shorter hair length would really flatter you . The long hair ages you, though you are still youthful looking . Enjoy your day.
What no birthday video? It can't be a birthday without a birthday video (or three).
Have a very Happy Birthday, Michelle! 🎉🎂🎁🎈 Our birthdays are a day apart. 😊 I hope you have a very wonderful and blessed day! ✝️ What a great belated birthday gift to have your precious Jill (and Derick & Israel) home from Central America, as well as to find out that you're going to be a grandmother again. You are blessed; stay blessed, and continue with your wonderful example of serving The Lord. May God forever bless you!
YAY!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
Happy Birthday! I do hope that her and Jim Bob are still trying for another baby. 50 isn't too old! Don't give up hope for more little ones just yet!
I wish you strong inspirations, purposeful meditations and beautiful awakenings! Happy birthday🎂
Happy Birthday have a great year.

Happy birthday Michelle hope you had a wonderful day full of love and memories!!! I love a saying from Audrey Hepburn that is something like this "Nothing is impossible the word itself is I'm possible." ♥♥♥ love y'all
Happy Birthday!!!! May God bless you with many many more years.
Happy birthday Michelle! I look up to you for your love of God and your family😘
Happy belated Birthday, Michelle! Prayers for a wonderful 51st year.
Happy birthday to you!!!☺☺☺☺
Happy belated Birthday Michelle! You are a wonderfully sweet lady and I miss your show 19 kids and counting I pray you all decide someday to make a whole family show again. I realize it may not be ALL TLC's decision,it may be partly your family's decision not to be on TV anymore too! I miss you and your husband and kids alot, and Mary!
Michelle isn't the matriarch of the family...Mary Duggar is the matriarch of that branch of the family. Why has this woman been overlooked?
Happy Birthday to Michelle. Is it silly to say that turning 50 is one of the things I like best about her right now. I'm a mom of 3 adopted children and I'm 1 year younger than Michelle (almost to the day). My children are all a year apart and my youngest is a year younger than Josie. I often felt crazy adopting at the age I did but seeing Michelle raising children the same age as mine makes me feel normal :0)
Happy late birthday Michelle hope u enjoyed your day
Happy Birthday Michelle! I hope I am blessed with such youthfulness in energy and looks when I am 50!
