Happy birthday to our first grandson, Michael!! He is a kindhearted young man who thinks of others and has a knowledge of sports (especially college football) that will put any fan to the test! 🏈 He loves to be outside and has become a great bicycle mechanic! We can’t wait to see all this year holds as this sweet boy learns and grows and goes on more adventures. Enjoy your special day, Michael! You are loved!! 💙
Josh and Anna’s kids
Michael is Josh and Anna’s eldest son. The Duggar couple has five other children. They are Mackynzie, 10, Marcus, 7, Meredith, 4, Mason, 2, and Maryella, 6 months.
Duggar fans suspect that Josh and Anna will continue to expand their family. Their youngest, Maryella, was born in November 2019, so they will likely wait a little while before having another child. But, Anna is already hinting that she has another baby name picked out.
Josh and Anna tied the knot in 2008. There have been several issues with Josh over the years. His molestation scandal was brought to light a few years ago. And, he also had an affair outside of his marriage. Despite these problems, Josh and Anna seem to be going strong. From what fans can see on social media, the couple is happy and healthy. Of course, some fans still can’t look past Josh’s incidents. Nonetheless, many fans are happy that the family is doing well.
