The "19 Kids And Counting" family the Duggars are getting bigger by number as Jim Bob and Michelle added another child to their brood. The court has recently granted the Duggar couple's petition for the full custody of their 8-year-old grandnephew, Tyler Hutchins. Meanwhile, the Duggars are once again becoming solid with the new additions in the family and an old member reuniting with them.
Married couple Jim Bob and Michelle have filed for a petition to acquire permanent guardianship of their grandnephew last Aug. 26. The couple found out how Michelle's niece, Rachel Hutchins, cannot support his son's health, safety and needs. Court documents have revealed that Rachel is currently unemployed, homeless, and having financial problems which urged the Duggar couple to put Tyler under their care. Nevertheless, Rachel is still allowed to see her son under supervised visitations.
After a thorough review, the court has decided to grant the petition which was made official on Nov. 21. For Tyler who will be away from his mother for most of his time now, Michelle and Jim have made sure that their new "son" will feel at home with them. Adjusting might not be that difficult for Tyler since the other Duggar kids have reportedly been throwing their warm welcome to their new brother.
Meanwhile, the Duggar parents might have more children to look after as their daughter Jessa is carrying her second child while recently wedded Jinger is also rumored pregnant. Jinger and her husband Jeremy Vuolvo have not confirmed any of the speculations yet. The sixth child of the Duggar parents though has previously talked about her desire of being a parent soon. She said that she is already excited for the future when she can already have her own complete family.
Talking about complete family, the Duggars had a merrier Thanksgiving as Josh, who has been shying away from the cameras, joined the family celebration. The family already seems to have fully moved on from the controversy that plagued them in 2015. Josh was revealed to have been sexually molesting girls where some of them are his sisters. This almost caused him his marriage which the Duggar parents helped patch since they believe that marriage is sacred and forgiving Josh is the best thing to do.
The issue has turned off producers which eventually led to the cancelation of "19 Kids And Counting." The Duggars, however, still got a chance to be back on the small screen through "Jill and Jessa: Counting On."
