These Are the Duggars Who Are 'Counting On' by Expanding Their Families


Apr. 24 2021, Updated 10:14 a.m. ET

At basically any given moment, odds are that at least one of the Duggar children is expecting a baby. With 19 kids in the Duggar family who are all seemingly interested in having big families themselves, the size of the clan has grown significantly since their TLC show 19 Kids & Counting went off the air in 2015 and the spinoff Counting On began.

Eight of the Duggar kids are married, and they all began expanding their own nuclear families shortly after walking down the aisle. What Duggars are pregnant? We know it's hard to keep track, so we did the work for you. Plus, details on the Duggars who just welcomed babies.

These are the Duggars who are pregnant and/or who have children:

1. Josh and Anna Duggar

Josh Duggar is most notably known now for being the reason why 19 Kids and Counting got canceled in the first place, after it was revealed that he had molested several of his sisters, and was active on the cheating website Ashley Madison. But, wife Anna stayed with Josh, and they kept having children.

Currently, they have six kids — Mackynzie, Michael, Marcus, Meredith, Mason, and Maryella — and in April 2021, Anna announced they're expecting their seventh child (a girl!) in fall 2021.

While Josh is not on Counting On, Anna and their kids do appear on the show from time to time.

To round out the list of Duggars who had kids in 2019, Jessa and Ben were the first of the year to add another baby to their family. Already parents to sons, Spurgeon and Henry, Jessa and Ben were in for a change when they had their first daughter. Ivy Jane Seewald was born on May 26, and the couple joked that having a daughter was a bit like starting over because they had to get all new clothes for her. 

Currently, Jessa and Ben are expecting their fourth child, due in summer 2021.

Joy-Anna and Austin Forsyth tied the knot in May 2017 before having their first child, Gideon, in May 2018. The Counting On star revealed in July 2019 that she miscarried a baby girl at 20 weeks along. (She and Austin named her Annabell Elise.)

It was in March 2020 when Joy-Anna and Austin revealed they were expecting again — with another baby girl. Her due date was Aug. 19, but Joy and Austin's daughter ended up arriving on Aug. 21.

Rumor has it that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar were worried that John David wasn't on the path to getting married. But, at the ripe old age of 28, John David finally walked down the aisle in November of 2018 with Abbie Grace Burnett. The couple announced that they were expecting their first child together in August of 2019, and they later did a gender reveal and learned that they were having a baby girl.

On Jan. 8, 2020, John David and Abbie welcomed little Grace Annette.

After getting married in June of 2018, the couple wasted no time in trying to expand their family. They soon announced that they were expecting, but Lauren had a miscarriage shortly thereafter. Several months later, the couple announced that they were having their rainbow baby, and that it was a girl. In November 2019, Lauren and Josiah welcomed daughter Bella Milagro, whose name translates to "Beautiful Miracle." Pass us the tissues.

In February of 2021, the couple announced that they were expecting their fourth child. Their new bundle of joy will arrive sometime in the summer.

"We're looking forward to summertime, and here’s our #1 reason!" Jessa wrote on Instagram, along with a photo of a sonogram. "Thank you, God, for this precious gift!"

She referred to her pregnancy as a "rainbow baby." The Counting On star had a pregnancy loss in 2020.

Jim Bob's niece Amy was the definite wild child of the Duggars, as she had a more conventional dating process with husband Dillon than the formal courting her cousins go through. After getting married in 2015, she and Dillon waited several years (which is also rare for a Duggar) before having a baby. Amy gave birth to son Daxton Ryan King in October 2019.

Many have grown up with the Duggars, and it's evident that the next generation is well on its way.
