Duggar #1 Turns 30

Today is a big milestone for the Duggars. Jim Bob and Michelle’s oldest child is 30 years old! Wishing Josh a happy birthday.

How fitting that Jim Bob and Michelle are celebrating their oldest child's 30th birthday just days after welcoming their 10th grandchild. The Duggar family sure is growing!

  1. I hope Josh has mended his ways and won't cause Anna any more grief. She deserves a husband she can trust and depend on.

    1. I hope any one reading this isn't so hypocritical that there is never room for forgiveness in their heart. It's over. Let it go.

  2. Happy 30th Josh! Milestone moment for sure...celebrating a 30th birthday and the arrival of the 10th grandchild. Congratulations Duggar Family. Josh was father to FIVE children before the age of 30, but Jim Bob was father to SEVEN children before the age of 30!

    2. That was an observation, not a competitive statement.

    1. Anna was still pregnant with Mason in this picture, as per the caption below it. No new bundle on the way now!

    2. That was when Anna was still pregnant with Mason

    3. Where are you getting that information from?

    4. Photo says 'before Mason's Birth' so it's an old one.

  12. This is a beautiful family, and I miss seeing them on Counting On, and I miss the Duggar family as a whole. May God one day bring you back for all of us to watch what he is able to do with our lives if we let him.

    1. I miss Anna and her kids, I'd love to see them on the show if Anna ever wanted to come back on but she may want to stay out of the spotlight.

    2. I miss seeing them too. I hope they're doing really well.

  16. I am curious as to what Josh does for a living now. Is he back in the car business?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Who knows? Since he lost his job due to bad behavior, there's been no mention of what he does to support his family.

      Delete
    2. Hes back working for his dad, ruunning a new car lot for him. I remember Michelle saying when Josh married Anna it was time to 'leave and cleave buddy', Josh never really managed it.

  17. Happy B-Day Josh. Hope you had an excellent day!

  18. The fact that Josh and Anna and their kids are all together there celebrating Josh's 30th birthday -- all credit to Anna. She is so sweet, beautiful and virtuous. She's kept her marriage and family together against all odds. He was crazy to ever run around on her. I hope he appreciates the pearl he's got now in her as a wife and mother of his kids.

    1. Anna is incredible! I would have respected her for whatever choice she made, and I hope if he EVER cheats on her again his family throws him to the curb, gets Anna and her kids their own house, and support her fully.

      Delete
    2. There's no telling what is truly in Anna's wounded heart, or why she did the things she did.

      Delete
    3. Where are Josh's happy birthday wishes from his family? No videos? Why haven't Jill, Jessa Jinger and Joy wished him a public happy birthday???

      Delete
    4. Debbie- Had Anna decided to divorce her husband, I would not have considered her any less "virtuous."

      Delete
    5. 6:44, why should they make him videos?

      Delete
    6. Anna is an incredible woman. Josh should be on his knees thanking God for this second chance. Not many women would be willing to try to work through what they have.

      Delete
  19. Anna and the children look beautiful.

  20. No updated family picture with all 5 children?

  28. I hope Josh will someday comprehend the absolute gift Anna has bestowed upon him. Biblically she had total right to have divorced. None of us really knows if her decision to stay was right or wrong as none of us know if Josh’s behind the camera life has really changed. I do believe with God all things are possible. I hope for Anna and her children Josh truly no longer offends anyone in any way.

  29. The photo in the kitchen with the balloons was last year's birthday, and it wasn't Josh's.

    2. Yes,I too remember this as being an older picture used for a different occasion. Can we see a new pic of Josh and Anna please?

    3. We can only see pictures of the family when they give new ones to Ellie

  30. If Josh is anxious to return to the public stage alongside his family, it would make sense for him to sit down and speak about what he did to Anna and his steps since then. I don’t see why the rest of his family has to speak in his place all the time while he runs off to hide.

    1. As long as Josh behaves properly toward Anna, he's not required to offer a public apology to Duggar fans.

      Delete
    2. As long as Josh expects to make a dollar from these fans, he does own them an apology.

      Delete
    3. I don’t think he has run off and hid, most men who did treatment like Josh are advised to stay off the internet and keep there focus on home life and work. Josh did not harm his fans, his issues affected his family and it appears he is doing what he needs to do to make amends. He made a remorseful public statement following the incidents and beyond that his wife, children and extended family are the only ones that can ask for an apology. The Duggar family does not make money from their fans, they are paid by a production company for their participation in a reality show which fans have free choice to watch or not.

      Delete
    4. Required, no. But I must say I would have more respect for Josh if he actually sat down for a televised interview, even a "softball" one with a friendly interviewer, of the type many other celebrities accused of various sins and crimes have set up for them.

      I actually wouldn't feel this way if the whole Duggar family had decided to go the "no comment" route, which they also had a right to do. But as it is, we have heard from Josh's parents, sisters, brothers, and wife. It does leave me with an impression that Josh let his family members, including his victims, stand in the line of fire from the media and other critics, while he himself fled from the public eye, and so got spared all of that.

      I do hope for the sake of all affected, that Josh has truly repented and made as much restitution as he could.

      Delete
    5. I don't blame him if he never wanted to be on camera again. No doubt he knows that he'll be criticized if he does and criticized if he doesn't (which is a familiar theme for their family).

    6. No fans = no viewers = no show. They are indeed the basis for the paycheck.

  32. Happy belated 30th Birthday Joshua James Duggar. I hope you had a great birthday. I really miss Anna, the kids and you on the show. I really hope TLC will someday let your family and you back on the show. I have watched you since the beginning at the age of 16. I like it when you talk on the show. Hopefully will be seeing the family and you back on the show soon. Natasha B.
