The 2x3 Duggars

Mason Duggar
Mason Duggar
Almost 2 years old
 
Mason is still the baby of the Josh and Anna Duggar family, but not for long!

Josh and Anna are continuing their trend of welcoming a baby ever odd year. Mackynzie (October 2009) and Michael (June 2011) are just 20 months apart, while Michael and Marcus (June 2013) are two weeks short of two years apart. Meredith (July 2015) arrived 25 months after Marcus, and Mason (September 2017) made his grand entry 26 months later. If Baby #6 comes as expected in November, she will be 26 months younger than Mason.

Vuolo Food Crawl

Felicity Vuolo and Jinger Vuolo

Over the weekend, Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo (and Felicity, of course) went on a food crawl of Los Angeles. With a small group of friends, they spent an entire day experiencing some of the best culinary options that the city has to offer. A coffee shop that they visited is famous for its incredible latte art. (If you look closely at the photo above, there is a picture of Felicity printed on Jinger's latte.)

Father-Son, Joe and Garrett

Joseph Duggar and Garrett Duggar

Joseph and 14-month-old Garrett snapped a sweet photo together, and we are wondering if you think Garrett looks more like his mom or dad.

Jana's Latest Project

Earlier today, we shared what the Forsyths have been up to, but they aren't the only members of the Duggar clan who are currently working on a massive project (or, rather, a Duggar-sized project). The Duggars love working with their hands and using the talents and abilities that God has given them.

Jana Duggar and some of her brothers are tackling an old, rundown schoolhouse, with the goal of restoring it. We will keep you updated as they share updates.

Forsyths' Newest Project

Joy and Austin Forsyth camper

Joy and Austin Forsyth just announced that they are starting the process of building a new house, to sell. They built one last year, also to sell, and say they are looking forward to another project. For about a year, they have been living in a 32-foot, 5th wheel camper. It is absolutely adorable and surprisingly spacious, don't you think?

"I just hope she's as pretty as her mommy. I know she will be."
-John-David Duggar
Earlier today, we shared a photo from John and Abbie Duggar's gender reveal party. Now we ae hopping back on here to pass on the exciting news: It's a girl! That's right, another Duggar granddaughter!

To continue the theme that was sort of established at the start of their relationship, their reveal was flight-themed, according to TLC. Visit the TLC website to watch the couple's announcement video. Abbie says that her first trimester was difficult but that she is feeling better now that she is in the second trimester. John and Abbie have not made their due date public, but we will let you know when and if they do.

2 Duggar Celebrations

Last night, a majority of the Duggars got together at the "big house" for a family game night. They played games like Settlers of Catan, Train Dominoes, and Ticket to Ride. They also gathered recently for a gender reveal party for John-David and Abbie Duggar's baby. What is your guess for this Duggar baby, boy or girl?

Giveaway for Nashville Readers

Good Monday evening (or Tuesday morning, if you are one of our lovely readers in Asia, Europe, Africa, or Australia). We know how much you all love giveaways, and we have another one for you. This one is a little different, though, because the "prize" is available to anyone who wants it, but it is only applicable to those who live in the Nashville area.

We are partnering with The Foto Sisters, a talented musical group up of three sisters who are friends of both the Duggars an the Bates. They have been given a handful of free tickets to an event in Nashville sponsored by Keith and Kristyn Getty of Getty Music. If you live in Tennessee and would like to attend this event for free, visit NashvilleWife.com, Ellie's lifestyle blog, for details.

It has been a while since we have shared a new photo of Ivy Seewald, the newest addition to the Duggar clan. She is almost three months old and is quite the little cutie. Hope you enjoy these photos of Ivy and her big brothers.

The LA Duggars

Jinger Vuolo, Jeremy Vuolo, Felicity Vuolo

The Vuolos have been in Los Angeles for two months and have been exploring the city in their free time. Their new location has a lot of diverse restaurants, so Jinger and Jeremy have become "foodies" as they seek to try all the new flavors. According to Jinger, her favorite has been Mediterranean.

10 Years of Duggar Headers


One of our loyal readers offered to update our photo header, and we just love the finished product. (We can't thank you enough!) For fun, we have pasted our old headers below to show how the Duggar family has changed since we started our blog almost 10 years ago. You can double-click on each to zoom in. The same person also updated our Bates header--head on over to our Bates blog to see that one.

We also want to mention that these photos are copyrighted (we have permission to use them, but we are unable to extend that permission to others). If you see our header on any other website or social media page, it is being used illegally. Links to our social media can be found at the top of our blog (below the header and tabs).

Kendra Turns 21

Wishing Kendra a happy 21st birthday! Before she married Joseph and became Kendra Duggar, she was Kendra Caldwell (middle name Renee). Like Anna and Lauren, she is due in November with a baby girl.

Joy and the Boys

"She was always out there playing with us and having all kinds of fun."
-Jason Duggar

"She wasn't exactly the girly-girl that most of my other sisters were."
-Jeremiah Duggar


It's no secret that Joy-Anna Duggar (now Joy-Anna Forsyth) grew up as a tomboy. With two brothers directly above her in the family lineup and six below her, she spend a good portion of her childhood years playing with the boys. And even though she is 21 and married with a son, she still maintains a very close relationship with her brothers. That's why this new photo of "Joy and the boys" is so sweet.

For nostalgia, we have also included a Counting On video clip that aired around the time of Joy's wedding but contains old footage of Joy as a little girl. (The video is from 2017, so disregard the message at the end that says that Counting On airs on Monday nights.)

New Episodes in 2 Months

According to People Magazine, October is the month when new episodes of Counting On are slated to return to TLC. That means that new Duggar content is just about two months away! The last season ended in March, so it has been quite some time.

Duggar Co-Pilot on the Way

John and Abbie Duggar
A Duggar co-pilot is on the way. You can probably guess that that means--John and Abbie Duggar are expecting!

"I'm really looking forward to having a little one around," says John-David Duggar in the couple's TLC announcement video. "I mean, I'm really just thrilled." You can visit the Duggars' website to watch the video and view the announcement photos.

John and Abbie just wrapped up their time in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, at the EAA AirVenture air show, an event that the Duggars attend annually.

John and Abbie have not yet announced Abbie's due date, but this little Duggar will be Jim Bob and Michelle's 17th grandchild.
