The Duggar family has grown quite a bit since they were introduced to viewers over a decade ago. 

What started as a one-off documentary turned into a reality TV empire for the family. 

Raising a large family fascinated viewers, and when Michelle Duggar continued to welcome children, the ratings continued to grow. 

From 19 Kids and Counting to Counting On, viewers have kept up with the growing family. Now, Jim Bob and Michelle are the head of the family, and several of their children have started families of their own. 

If you aren’t sure who is who, we’ve got you covered. This is the complete list of Duggar family members and how they are all related to the matriarch and patriarch.

As the oldest son and child of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, all eyes have been on Josh Duggar. He didn’t have to handle much because his sisters were always there to help out with the younger kids and the girls carried way more responsibilities than the boys. 

He is currently in the custody of Lacount and Maria Reber following his release from jail. Josh was arrested in April 2021 and charged with possession and receipt of child pornography. 

Being married to Josh Duggar is Anna Duggar’s claim to fame. The two tied the knot on September 26, 2008, and have welcomed six children since then. 

With Josh locked up, she is forced to handle all of the children by herself as she carries their seventh child. Anna is due in the coming weeks, and the couple revealed it would be another baby girl. 

Mackynzie was born on October 9, 2009. Michael Duggar was born on June 15, 2011. Marcus Duggar was born on June 2, 2013. Meredith Duggar was born on July 16, 2015. Mason Duggar was born on September 12, 2017. Maryella Duggar was born on November 27, 2019.

Currently, she is the one who stepped away from filming. There have been some issues between her and her parents, and boundaries have been put into place

Recently, Derick graduated from law school. He has been vocal about his thoughts and opinions on the Duggar family, and he was the one who revealed the rift between his wife and her parents nearly a year before it was confirmed.

Josiah Duggar is the fourth brother. He fell in with the older group of children and married in succession with them.

Lauren Swanson came into his life, and after courting briefly, the two were married on June 30, 2018. They found themselves pregnant following their wedding, but unfortunately, she miscarried. It was a big deal for the couple, so when she announced she was expecting a rainbow baby, followers were thrilled for the couple.

Even though they are married, they are keeping their life off social media.

Josie Duggar is the baby of the bunch. She was born on December 10, 2009, at just 25 weeks gestation. It was touch and go in the beginning, but she pulled through.

She has come a long way and has found some good friends in her older sisters and her niece, Mackynzie Duggar. 

Tyler Hutchins

Tyler Hutchins is the odd one without a “J” name. That’s because he is Michelle Duggar’s great-nephew. His mother is her niece.
