Fans of the Duggar family know that there are lots of kids in the family. Jim Bob and Michelle became famous when their shows aired on TLC. Most recently, the family starred on 19 Kids & Counting. Now, most of the grown children are a part of Counting On, which is also on TLC.

Unfortunately, Counting On often gets behind on what’s actually happening in the family members’ lives. This is simply due to filming and production. To help with this, sometimes TLC airs birth specials and other special episodes to keep fans up-to-date. Recently, the network aired a birth special for the birth of Kendra and Joe’s second child, Addison.

On the family blog, it says, “Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar married July 21st, 1984. At that time, they chose to use the birth control pill. They thought, “We don’t want children right now. We can’t afford them. We want children in our timing, when we’re ready.” Four years later they decided to have their first child. Then, Michelle went back on the pill, but she conceived and had a miscarriage. At that point they talked with a Christian medical doctor and read the fine print in the contraceptives package.
