It seems like someone is always pregnant and there are new members of the family to be introduced. On May 17, Joy-Anna and Austin Forsyth’s third baby, Gunner James, was born.

Did Jim Bob Duggar confirm secret grandchildren?
In Joy-Anna’s new video, Jim Bob proudly snuggled up with his newest grandson. Austin asked, “What is this one? The 30th?”
In response, Jim Bob Duggar said, “Yeah, this is the 15th boy.” He and Michelle also have 15 granddaughters. He added that Jed and Katey’s daughter, Nora Kate, will be a “tie-breaker.” She’s due to arrive any day now.
After watching this video, Duggar fans and critics took to Reddit to discuss it. Based on the number of confirmed Duggar grandkids, it looks like there might be a couple of secret ones who have not been publicly announced. So, fans are trying to figure out who might have had a secret baby.
The general consensus is that Josiah and Lauren Duggar now have three kids and Joe and Kendra have four. Based on Jim Bob’s count, it sounds like Josiah and Lauren might have had a girl and then a boy. Previously, fans spotted a tag that read, “Josiah, Lauren, Bella, and Daisy.”
Then, Joe and Kendra would have had a boy as their rumored fourth child. For now, it’s all speculation. Some fans believe Jim Bob Duggar can’t keep everything straight and might have mixed up the count. Hopefully, there will be an official confirmation soon enough.
