Duggar #16 Turns 13

Three days after celebrating Mackynzie's 9th birthday, it's time for the Duggars to honor yet another family member turning one year older. Today is Johannah Duggar's 13th birthday, which means she is officially a teenager. At this point, only three of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's 19 children are still "children."

    1. She's 13! Why on Earth do you want her to get married and have babies so soon? Her ambition is to be a doctor. Wouldn't it be awesome if she was the first Duggar to go to college and have a career that is not one of the family businesses or flipping houses?

    2. Wow. That’s a very awkward comment for a new teenager. Let her grow up first,

    3. Slow down a little lol. She’s 13..nowhere near ready for marriage!

    4. Why be a Doctor? She can be a Doctor's wife!

    5. Slow down let her enjoy her teen years,then go to college and get her degree before having her get married and having kids. I just don't see why they think they have to have so many kids in the first place. That's my opinion

    6. Anon @ 1:09 She can be the doctor, he can be a doctors husband!

    7. Woah! Let her be a teenager first, have fun and discover herself. My daughter turned 13yrs two days after Johanna I won't give permission for a serious courtship until she's 18yrs!!

    8. That comment is ridiculous, you’re awfully excited for a young lady who just turned 13 to start doing all that. Is this how you would let your own daughter start her teenage years?
      And Yes, Johanna can be a Dr, not just the Dr’s wife and stay home and be a baby machine.
      Happy Birthday Johanna 🎈
      Enjoy your teenage years 💐

    9. So if she changes her mind and decides to be a wife and mother, are you saying that is somehow less? Most wife and mothers work very hard, and raising children is an important job too.

      Delete
    10. I don't think being a mother makes you a machine.

    11. Anon @12:17 Being a stay at home mom and raising a family is indeed a hard but very worthwhile job. What I do find strange is that not one of these kids has gone on to college or achived their dreams. The one who got the closest was Jill, although she wanted to be a nurse but her father said no, so she did midwifery training via a correspondence course, I find it all very sad.

  2. Happy 13th birthday Johannah Faith Duggar! I watched you before you were born. Your sisters were so excited to have a little sister. You were one of your Mom's quickest births. I can't wait to see what God has in store for you. I can't wait for you to be on Counting On. Hope you have a great birthday today. Natasha B.

    1. A thirteen year old is a teenager

      Delete
    2. Old enough to start thinking about her future.

      Delete
    3. Thirteen is a minor child.

      Delete
    4. Yes 13 is still a child

      Delete
    5. Still doesn’t change the fact that a 13y/o is a child.

      Delete
  5. That is incredible that there are only 3 kids now under the age of 13!!! Wow, cannot believe it! It's hard to believe that in 10 years, everybody could be married and gone, and Jim Bob and Michelle could be empty nesters.

    1. Some of them are married but most still live in or near the "family compound" so they're not gone.

    2. But, the 'big house' will never be empty, filled with kids & grandkids, always a birthday to celebrate! ❤

      Delete
    3. I wonder who will inherit the big house someday? Maybe the one w the most kids.

      Delete
    4. The house will probably be turned into a religious theme park and roadside attraction, with an RV park. Duggarland! They can use that D banner from Lauen's reception. :)

  6. The eldest of the four 'little girls' growing up, taller than Jackson! Blessed wishes on your 13th, Johannah! ❤

  7. Happy birthday Johannah - you were a rough and ready little girl and kept up with Jackson. . . it has been a pleasure to watch you grow into a young lady.

  8. At the rate the family is growing, they should just start doing monthly birthday celebrations.

  12. Johannah is too pretty a name to change it to Hannie.

    Replies
    1. But I love the nickname Hannie!

      Delete
    2. I agree Jean! If they had to shorten it why could they have said Hannah? Hannie just odd, I hope they drop it as she gets older.

      Delete
    3. I hope that people respect Johanna as her own person and call her by the nickname she likes or her full name if she prefers. Its really the only opinion that matters in this discussion.

      Delete
    4. Why do you care so much what her family calls her? I’m sure she doesn’t so why should you? Relax

      Delete
  13. Happy birthday !!! God bless you.

  17. Ellie; could you catch us up on the young kids? Are they still homeschooled and what grade are they all? Are any of them playing an instrument or participating in a sport?

  18. Maybe Johanna will be a nurse someday. like Johns fiancee.

    1. She wants to be a doctor. Just because she is female does not mean that she has to be a nurse. It's not 1958 anymore.

      Delete
    2. Nothing wrong with being a nurse. It's an honorable profession.

      Delete
    3. There are male nurses, too. It's not 1958.

  20. Happy Birthday, Johannah! You are a precious creation. 13 is a great age to figure what you do and do not like. We have a 13 yo girl we homeschool and it’s a great age!
