Season 10 of the popular TLC series Counting On is almost here, and there is so much going on in Duggar world these days that we’re not sure if they are going to have enough time to cover it all. Since last season wrapped in March, the Duggars have experienced five pregnancy announcements, the birth of one grand-Duggar, the birth of a cousin, one major move to the West Coast, and two heartbreaking losses. Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Counting On Season 10.
For the first time in a couple of years, the new season of Counting On will be all about babies instead of engagements and weddings. According to the Season 10 trailer, fans will witness five pregnancy announcements from Kendra Caldwell, Anna Duggar, Joy-Anna Duggar, Lauren Swanson, and Abbie Grace Burnett.
Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald also welcomed their third child this year – a daughter they named Ivy Jane. And, Cousin Amy Duggar and her husband Dillon King just welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Daxton Ryan, earlier this month.
There’s no doubt that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are over the moon about how fast their family is growing – as the family patriarch once revealed he wanted 100 grandchildren – but not everything this year has been happy news.
In June, Jim Bob’s mom Mary passed away in a drowning accident at her home, and her emotional funeral is a big part of the Season 10 trailer. Just a few days later, Joy-Anna Duggar and her husband, Austin Forsyth, revealed that they had lost their second pregnancy due to miscarriage at the 20-week mark.
Another major change in the Duggar family was Jinger Duggar and her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, moving from Laredo, Texas, to Los Angeles, California, so Vuolo could continue his education at the Master’s Seminary. TLC cameras followed the couple and their one-year-old daughter Felicity as they road-tripped from Texas to California, with a stop in Tontitown, Arkansas, to visit the rest of the family along the way.
Jim Bob, Michelle, and 16 other Duggars are currently in Los Angeles visiting Jinger, Jeremy, and Felicity, and they have been sharing the trip on social media. In the pics, fans noticed that Jinger has ditched her rebel wardrobe for a more conservative look of a khaki dress with no makeup while her parents are in town.
In the Season 10 trailer, Jinger and Michelle sit side-by-side and discuss her rebellious pants-wearing behavior since she got married.
Season 10 of Counting On premieres Tuesday, October 15th on TLC.
