More About Jim Bob Duggar & Michelle Duggar
Jim Bob married and his wife Michelle 1984. Some time after the birth of their first child, they prayed that God would give them a love for children like his love for children and that he would bless them with as many children as he saw fit in his timing. Soon after, Michelle became pregnant with twins! With child number eighteen due January 1, 2009, the Duggars currently have ten boys and seven girls, and all their names begin with J: Joshua, Jana and John-David (twins), Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joseph, Josiah, Joy-Anna, Jedidiah and Jeremiah (twins), Jason, James, Justin, Jackson, Johannah, and Jennifer. The Duggars have been featured on six Discovery Health / TLC documentaries and are contracted to film several more. They have appeared multiple times on national TV shows, such as The Today Show, Good Morning America, The View, Inside Edition, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Fox News Network, CNN, MSNBC, and others. Foreign television appearances include Italian Public Television, KBS (Korean Broadcasting System), and Discovery Home & Health (UK & Australia).
