Is Little People, Big World star Tori Roloff taking inspiration from 19 Kids & Counting and Counting On stars Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar? She seems to be taking a few ideas out of their family handbook these days. Keep reading to find out what she’s done.

Both the Roloffs and the Duggars have been on TLC for years, though Jim Bob and Michelle’s family’s show came to an end last year. It looks like the Duggars and Roloffs are friendly with each other on social media, too.

In case you missed it, Zach and Tori Roloff recently welcomed their third baby to the world. They named him Josiah Luke. Their other kids are Jackson, 5, and Lilah, 2.

Interestingly, the Duggar family has kids named Jackson and Josiah, too. All of the Duggar kids’ names begin with the letter J, and it looks like Tori and Zach might have been following that same pattern when it came to naming their newest addition.

Tori Roloff feels inspired by the Duggar family once again

On her Instagram stories this weekend, Tori Roloff showed fans that she might be using the Duggars as inspiration again. The LPBW mom gave fans an honest statement on how her family’s photos went. She posted several of them on her regular Instagram feed, and naturally, LPBW viewers loved this.

Of course, with three little kids, the shoot probably wasn’t the easiest.

So, she explained to fans, “Si wasn’t into it and the older kids were definitely showing off for @MoniqueTSerra.”

She shared that she is very happy with how they turned out anyway. But in this post, she revealed her newest baby’s nickname. She called him “Si.” This happens to be what the Duggar family calls their son Josiah as well.

On Josiah Duggar’s Instagram page, which he shares with his wife, Lauren, their username is @SiandLaurenDuggar.

It’s possible that this is purely a coincidence. But fans find it interesting that Tori Roloff used two of the Duggar kids’ names and one of the same nicknames, too. It’s unclear if it was actually intentional.

So, do you think that Tori Roloff was inspired to use J names or call her baby boy “Si” thanks to the Duggars? Or do you think it’s purely a coincidence? Share your thoughts in the comments section below. And come back to TV Shows Ace for more news about both the Roloffs and the Duggars.

  1. You’re starting rumors. There’s many named Josiah and nicknamed Si. I really wish you guys would stop making comparisons. It can be hurtful and it’s rude. Try focusing on what a beautiful family and sweet pictures.
