Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar are known for their large family. The couple has 19 biological children and has adopted a relative’s son, Tyler, as well. Many of their adult kids have gotten married and started having families of their own. So, Jim Bob and Michelle have lots of grandchildren now too.
An interesting statement from Jim Bob has resurfaced, revealing how many grandkids he thinks he could have someday. After the birth of Israel, Jill and Derick Dillard’s first son, Jim Bob and Michelle made a video congratulating them. In the clip, Jim Bob joked, “Four grandkids and counting. Going on 200.”
Jim Bob made this prediction back in 2015, and at the time, he only had four grandkids. But now, the family has grown drastically. Are they on track for 200 grandchildren?
How many grandkids do Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar currently have?
Jim Bob and Michelle currently have 21 grandchildren. Josh and Anna Duggar’s seventh child is due this fall, and Jedidiah and Katey’s first baby is due in spring 2022.
The 21 grandchildren include:
- Mackynzie (Josh and Anna)
- Michael (Josh and Anna)
- Marcus (Josh and Anna)
- Israel (Jill and Derick)
- Meredith (Josh and Anna)
- Spurgeon (Jessa and Ben)
- Henry (Jessa and Ben)
- Samuel (Jill and Derick)
- Mason (Josh and Anna)
- Gideon (Joy and Austin)
- Garrett (Joe and Kendra)
- Felicity (Jinger and Jeremy
- Ivy (Jessa and Ben)
- Addison (Joe and Kendra)
- Bella (Josiah and Lauren)
- Maryella (Josh and Anna)
- Grace (John and Abbie)
- Evelyn (Joy and Austin)
- Evangeline (Jinger and Jeremy)
- Brooklyn (Joe and Kendra)
- Fern (Jessa and Ben)
Could there be 200 Counting On grandchildren?
At this point, it’s probably too late for Jim Bob and Michelle to have 200 grandchildren. Each of their children would need to have 11 kids to accomplish this. Unless many of their kids decide to adopt children, they probably won’t fulfill Jim Bob’s high prediction.
But it’s safe to say that Jim Bob and Michelle will have quite a few grandchildren. It will be interesting to see just how large their family becomes. Josh and Anna are about to welcome their seventh child, but Jill and Derick seem to be taking things more slowly.
So, do you think that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar will eventually have 200 grandkids? Or do you think that’s impossible at this point? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
