Apr. 24 2021, Updated 1:29 p.m. ET

You don’t have 19 children without eventually gaining even more grandchildren, and TLC’s Duggar family is on the fast track to having more grandchildren than they can keep track of. The Duggar grandchildren make up the extended Duggar family and on Counting On, fans have gotten to know the youngest new members of the growing family.

How many grandchildren do the Duggars have? It's, uhm, a lot.

Once upon a time, patriarch Jim Bob Duggar was rumored to have said he wanted to have 100 grandchildren someday. So, how many Duggar grandchildren are there?

1. Josh and Anna Duggar got the baby train moving.

As the eldest of the Duggar children, Josh 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.

These days, Josh and Anna have six children — Mackynzie, Michael, Marcus, Meredith, Mason, and Maryella — and Anna is due with their seventh child (a girl) in fall 2021.

Although Jill and Derrick are no longer part of Counting On, fans still follow their family through social media. Unlike most of her siblings, Jill doesn't seem to have a permanent case of baby fever, though. She has two little boys, Israel and Samuel, right now and hasn't announced any plans for more in the near future.

Jessa is arguably the star of Counting On these days, despite sharing the TLC spotlight with some of her siblings. Naturally, she was part of the pregnancy palooza that seemed to strike the adult Duggar kids in 2019. She has two little boys, Spurgeon and Henry, and one daughter, Ivy, with her husband, Ben Seewald.

On Feb. 18, 2021, Jessa revealed that she's pregnant with her fourth child and due in the summer.

Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo had a fairly quick courtship before they got married. While that's not uncommon in the Duggar family, since no one technically "dates," they did take a little more time to have their daughter, Felicity, who was born in June 2018. After experiencing a miscarriage in November 2019, Jinger welcomed a baby girl named Evangeline in November 2020.

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 22, she already has two children with husband Joseph Duggar: Garrett, Addison, and as of Feb. 19, 2021, Brooklyn Praise.

Joy-Anna is one of the younger adult Duggar children who got married and had a child shortly after, but she and Austin seem to have a solid relationship. 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.

8. John-David and Abbie Duggar welcomed their first child in 2020.

John David was the most recent Duggar to get married. Because the Duggar family isn't shy about having kids soon after they say "I do," it didn't come as a surprise when Abbie and John David announced they were expecting a baby in 2019. They welcomed a daughter named Grace in January 2020.

If you count up all their adult children's little ones, Jim Bob and Michelle currently have a whopping 20 grandkids and two on the way — which is enough grandkids to make up two baseball teams!
