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.

    2. @3:11pm: If you check out the birthday section of this blog you will see that Lily & Ellie, have a list of which of the Duggar Grandchildren belong to which of the Duggar children.

    3. The list doesn't share the three grandchildren that haven't been announced.

    1. One granddaughter's presence was revealed in the video from last Christmas. One grandson (?) was spotted at a restaurant before that. Yeah, it would be nice if someone gave us an accurate count. We don't need private details, just a count.

    2. I believe Josiah and Lauren had another secretly last year as did Joseph and Kendra (as both were spotted in videos with baby bumps on those who have YouTube channels). And John David and Abby had a boy last Fall.

    3. They didn't announce a couple of the grandbabies after they were born.

    4. Yep. There are three kids that have never been acknowledged to exist. Very strange.

      Delete
    5. Apparently Gunner is #30 (15 boys and 15 girls) and Nora is the tie-breaker, #31.

      Delete
    6. Probably Justin and Claire too, I remember there was speculation soon after their wedding.

      Delete
    7. Those with "secret" babies are probably trying to maintain some privacy. They have a right to that after living for years in the public eye.

      Delete
    8. The baby that was born at Christmas was already up their and was counted for.

  5. I wish all these families health, safety, and happiness. I think they've chosen very nice names for their children. GOD bless them all!

  6. Congratulations Katey & Jedidah!!!!!!!!!! Welcome to the world Nora.

  7. Wait, there's more going on than a docu-series and daughters speaking out?

  8. 15 to 15 is 30, not 31... Which Jim Bob said in Gunner birth vlog once Nora was born it would be 15 boys & 16 girls. But I know you all will not share the unnamed/who's child until it is revealed by their family. Both Gunner & Nora's births were lovely

    ReplyDelete
  9. Wish they gave an exact date when she arrived so we know how many days apart she is from Gunner. In fact,there is barely no information except her weight at birth in the video.

    1. I'm sure if the parents feel this is relevant, they'll let people know. For the rest of us who don't even know them personally, perhaps we can just be pleased these children exist (or if you are the type who post here talking about how "this family doesn't need more.____", you do you.).

      Delete
    2. Katey's due date was May 24th, She said she was induced the next day, early in the morning, Nora was born in the afternoon - it's May 25th.

  10. 31 grandkids ? You only list 28 on the website. I am guessing the rumous than Lauren & Josiah and Joseph & Kendra each had a "secret" baby is true ? And that still leaves another secret one ?

    1. Maybe Justin's wife had one.

      Delete
    2. I don’t think they are “secret”. I just think some families have opted out of the public eye.

      Delete
    3. I know. I think it was Claire and Justin who had a "secret" baby. They've totally dropped out of sight.

      Delete
    4. The reason they're keeping new births private is very clear to me. When Kendra would announce a pregnancy she was torn to shreds online for having children so close together,or for wanting more than 2 kids.That's just one example as to how the families are treated for sharing the news. If that happened to me, I'd stop sharing the news too. Unfortunately for those of us who don't behave that way,we don't get to read the good news about all the new pregnancies and births. Sad really.

    6. I seriously doubt that anything said online influences whether or not Kendra has more children or when she has them.

      Delete
    7. 7:03, uh, no one said that. What they DID say was that the backlash to wanting more kids was what likely caused Kendra to not announce babies. Not to cause her to not have more babies.

      Delete
    8. To be fair these people who go after Jill, Kendra and Jinger is only a few accounts that are obviously made up.

      Delete
    9. Sort of disappointing that we keep being told of 31 grandkids and yet no one updates as to who the recent ones are. I know it's none of our business as we are not their family, but if it keeps being announced as a certain number ...

  11. Congratulations Jedidiah and Katie for your happy and healthy delivery. Nora is so precious.

  12. 15 girls and 15 boys does not make 31 as they said.

    1. She’s number 31, and the tie breaker

      Delete
    2. You misread the statement. There were already 15 girls and 15 boys. Nora was grandbaby 31 and broke the tie. There are 3 boys that have not been announced. It's unclear WHO had them.

      Delete
    3. 9:29AM: It's actually two boys and one girl that we don't know about, not three boys. Don't forget Jeremiah and his wife have 1 baby girl, Brynley, plus Anna's 4, John-David's 1, Jessa's 2, Jinger's 2, Joseph's 2, Josiah's 1, Joy's 1, and Jedidiah's 1 (Nora) for a total of 15 girls that we know about, out of 16. And 13 boys out of 15 that we know about.

  13. Congratulations!! So happy for you both! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  14. So now there is no Duggar woman that is known to be pregnant. How did that happen?

    1. There's always someone pregnant in our world. Remember that.

  15. An updated list is long overdue. What harm is there in listing babies and the year they were born? If the parents don't want to disclose names, then just say "Boy, 2022." It's not like they have to fight off swarms of paparazzi in their driveways in Arkansas. They're not planning on hiding these kids at home for the next 18 years either. What a silly game, "Guess the Babies."

    1. Why does it bother you to start with? LOL

    2. I agree. A simple announcement like John and Abbie did would be normal. Just a name and that's it.

      Delete
    3. Regardless at the end of the day, it's the parents decision if they want to announce it or not.

      Delete
    4. @11:55 You don't even need a name. "So And So had a girl in 2021" would suffice. No need to mention birthdate, weight, hair color, eye color, social security number, etc. etc.

  16. Congratulations to Katey ,Jedidiah and Truet on the birth of Nora Kate. Welcome to the world Nora Kate. What a pretty name. God Bless.

  17. Nora is a old name meaning honor and shining light. While on the surface that seems okay, the name has been tied to people involving scandals such as Nora Fatehi. The middle name... You might as well named her Karen. We don't need a second Kate Plus Eight.

    2. Uhhh, there are also Kates and Noras who are not involved in scandals.

    3. Wow. Just wow. Aren’t you a shining light.

      Delete
    4. Puleezzze. If we avoided names based on the idea it might be tied to someone with a scandal, our children wouldn't have names at all. I would like to think most people aren't petty and think, "Well, I can't name my child Hugo, because in the 14th Century there was some dude by that name who killed his grandfather." Also, I believe Nora's middle name is after her MOTHER. So, maybe not the whole Karen thing you described.

      Delete
    5. Oh please Nora Fatehi is a Bollywood actress. I highly doubt any of the Duggars or most Americans even know who she is. I am Indian and even I had to look her up to see what scandal she was involved in.

    3. @6:58 they make claims they can't back up. I don't find it informative news.

      Delete
    4. I don't know, 8:58. I've seen supporters make some wild claims too. Either they've missed some reports or don't want to believe what's going on or don't want to check facts.

      Delete
    5. It's good that all types of comments are allowed. Given what has happened these last 10 years or so, it would be impossible to pretend now that all is perfect with the Duggars. That would be so untruthful.

      Delete
    6. @8:15 Agreed. Even the Duggars would agree!

  22. These Duggar brothers all remind of Josh in how they look, talk and act. They give me creepy vibes... can't help it.

    1. Well don't siblings usually look alike?

    2. @5:50 Sometimes they do, but biological siblings don't always look alike. Regardless, Josh gives me the creeps and I can't help but feel the same about his brothers, because they remind me of him.

      Delete
    3. 10:36 well again they are siblings and the Duggars dress alike. JB is questionable for protecting him and not his daughters. John-David was really hurt by his brother and told him face to face he didn't want to be like him.

    4. 9:57 don't let one bad seed ruin the rest of your thoughts if you can help it. They can't help the way they look.
