Congrats to Jackson and Johannah!

Johannah Duggar and Jackson Duggar, 2010

Fans have known Jackson and Johannah Duggar since the moment they were born, Jackson in 2004 and Johannah in 2005. When the Duggars first appeared on TV, in 14 Children and Pregnant Again, Michelle was expecting Jackson. His birth was featured in that special, and Johannah made her debut in the following special, Raising 16 Children

Now almost 20 years later, this brother-sister duo has reached an exciting milestone. They both just graduated from high school! As they have done for their other children, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar celebrated Jackson and Johannah with a ceremony, a party, and senior pictures. Photos can be found on the Duggars' website. Jackson turned 19 in May, and Johannah will be 18 in October.

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.
