Jim Bob Duggar is one of the most famous fathers in the reality TV realm.

Several of Jim Bob’s children took to social media to give their dad a shoutout on Father’s Day. They listed some of what they love about him. Most of them likely used their Instagram Stories to show their love, so they didn’t have to deal with any negativity surrounding the family.

Jim Bob Duggar remains silent about Josh Duggar
A little less than a month ago, Jim Bob Duggar’s oldest son, Josh Duggar, was sentenced to 12.5 years in federal prison.
Josh was rumored to be the child Jim Bob wanted to emulate in his footsteps, including in politics. Josh was on his way to doing so when the first scandal about his inappropriate touching of his sisters was revealed. From there, things continued to slide downhill, ending where things are now.
Jim Bob was present at the sentencing hearing but left alone, without Anna Duggar or his children who attended.
Despite all the turmoil the family has faced, several of the siblings are still grateful for Jim Bob Duggar being their dad.
