Meet Nora Kate Duggar

Jed and Katey Duggar welcomed their second child, Nora Kate Duggar, in late May. They uploaded her birth story to YouTube, for fans who are interested. Had she arrived a few weeks earlier, Nora would have been born exactly one year after her brother, Truett, whose birthday is May 2nd.

Nora arrived days after cousin Gunner James Forsyth. She was the tie breaker, as Gunner's birth gave Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar an even 15 granddaughters and 15 grandsons. With the addition of Nora, they now have 31 grandchildren.
