The world first met the Duggar family when they were just a clan of 16, featured in the 2004 documentary 14 Children and Pregnant Again. The supersized Baptist brood's fame grew along with their family, eventually leading to the hit TLC reality series 19 Kids and Counting, which followed their adventures in home schooling, courtship and family expansion. 

After the show's cancellation in 2015, fans continued to follow the Duggars on their follow-up seriesCounting On, as well as on their various social media pages. Led by parents Jim Bob and Michelle, the Duggar family now consists of 19 kids, eight sons- and daughters-in-law, and 17 grandchildren -- and counting!

As the eldest Duggar kids are growing up, getting married and having kids of their own, it can be hard to keep track of everyone. Here's ET's handy Duggar family tree -- from Jim Bob to Josie -- tracking marriages, births and all the other big announcements!

JIM BOB & MICHELLE

Jim Bob is a licensed realtor and owns several commercial properties in the family's Arkansas hometown. He also served in the Arkansas House of Representatives from 1999-2002. The family are Independent Baptist Christians and home-schooled all 19 of their children.

Ever since John and I were little we've been asked if we have that “twin thing”. You know, the thing where you feel what the other one is feeling or know what the other one is thinking. 💭 Well, John, I've always answered that with a no—but now I can honestly say that the day little Gracie was born I felt every bit of happiness that you did, so I guess it must be real! 🥰 . It’s so sweet watching you & Abbie as parents! You’re naturals! And the same qualities that have made you a wonderful brother will also make you an amazing dad. . You are wise, tenderhearted, godly, and patient. You stand for what you believe in, you’ve always been one to think outside the box, and are always determined to finish what you’ve started. . Being an aunt to your little girl is priceless. Being your twin is an honor. Happy birthday, John!!
