How many grandchildren do Donny and Debra have?

Donny and Debra first became grandparents in 2005, and since then, they have amassed 10 grandchildren. While 10 may seem like plenty for some grandparents, Donny and Debra are likely to add even more people to their immediate family. Josh, their youngest son, just got married on June 12. Josh was married to Summer Felsted in an intimate backyard ceremony. The wedding came after their original venue canceled because of COVID-19.

In an interview with Closer, the couple said that their wedding turned out perfect. "It made the whole day more personal and special," Josh said. "The wedding turned out more beautiful than we could have even imagined. It was such a fun celebration of this new step we’re taking in life." Originally, they wanted to get married at the Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

"It's such a great feeling for Debbie and me to know that our family will soon be complete. We were blessed with 5 wonderful sons, and are extremely lucky to have gained 4 (soon to be 5) phenomenal daughters-in-law. Each of them are such a great strength and blessing to our entire family."
