So, in addition to being parents, they are happily accepting the role of grandpa and grandma. In the Duggar family, the grandkids refer to their grandparents as Lolli and Pops. They have 17 grandkids, with two more on the way. Michelle recently hosted a few of her grandkids for a day of watercolor painting. She seems very involved in her grandkids’ lives.

Say yes to the mess! 🎨☺️ Some of our greatest memories and biggest laughs have come from the lively messes we have made while having fun together. I love these moments with my children and grandchildren as they create, learn, and grow! 💕 The days of sticky tables and fingers are sometimes long, but the years are short and I cherish each one!!
Michelle Duggar talks about the joys of being a grandmother
In a new interview with Us Weekly, Michelle talks about her life as a grandmother. She says, “My kids joke and say, ‘You’re in grandma mode,’ and I am. I really am! But I’m also still raising mine and I’ve got a 10-year-old. That’s the youngest now, Josie. It’s a joy because you get to enjoy the grandkids. I heard people tell me for years, ‘You’re going to love these grandkids,’ and it’s the best. It’s amazing because you get to enjoy the fun, but not all the responsibility of packing the diaper bag and remembering all the details that you need to do. It’s wonderful. It really is. It’s the best thing ever. I love, I love having these grandkids.”
When talking about being a grandma, Michelle also says she’s “so grateful.”
Michelle gives an update on her growing family, adding, “We’ve been enjoying new granddaughters, so we’ve had five and two more coming. So a string of little seven girls and that’ll make 19 grandchildren — with tons of nieces and nephews, it’s never a dull moment. Some of them have had very difficult pregnancies and I think just the joy of that baby at the end is the big reward. … That precious little gift at the end is such a joy.”
Jinger Vuolo and Joy-Anna Forsyth are both expecting right now. Jinger previously had a miscarriage. Joy-Anna lost a baby at 20 weeks gestation in Summer 2019. So, they are both thrilled about their babies on the way. The girls revealed that they grew closer due to their losses. While their losses are still heartbreaking, they can count on each other.
