As the eldest of the Duggar children, Josh Duggar got married and started having kids of his own before any of his siblings. And once he and wife Anna began, they didn't really slow down.

Jill and Derick Dillard have three boys.

Jill and Derick Dillard currently have three little boys, Israel, Samuel, and their youngest son Frederick, who was born in July 2022.

Joseph and Kendra Duggar have three confirmed children, and are rumored to have a fourth.

Kendra explained during an episode of Counting On that she sometimes still feels too young to have a family already. But at the age of 23, she already had three children with husband Joseph Duggar: Garrett, Addison, and Brooklyn.

There's also a theory that Joe and Kendra had a fourth child whom they have not shared publicly. Eagle-eyed fans spotted Joe holding a baby in Joy-Anna's gender reveal video from November 2022, as well as in a clip from Jinger's vlog from July 2023.

They had their son, Gideon, not long after they were married. Sadly, Joy-Anna miscarried in 2019 at 20 weeks along during her second pregnancy; she and Austin named that baby girl Annabell.

Joy-Anna and Austin went on to welcome a daughter they named Evelyn in August 2020. And in May of 2023, they welcomed their third baby, Gunner!
