The Duggar family is one of the largest families in the United States, with 19 kids. The family rose to prominence on the TLC reality series 19 Kids and Counting and its spinoff, Counting On.

The Duggars are devout Baptists and do not believe in birth control. Following a miscarriage, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar decided to stop using the pill and “prayed” and asked God to give them as many children as he saw fit — which is how they ended up with 19 kids.

The Duggar family has been a source of controversy, from their unconventional values, conservative views, and Josh Duggar’s sex abuse scandals, from molestation allegations to charges for possession of child pornography.
