The Duggar Family Tree: 'Counting' all the marriages, kids and big announcements!

The world first met the Duggar family when they were just a clan of 16, featured in the 2004 documentary 14 Children and Pregnant Again. The supersized Baptist brood's fame grew along with their family, eventually leading to the hit TLC reality series 19 Kids and Counting, which followed their adventures in home schooling, courtship and family expansion. 

After the show's cancellation in 2015, fans continued to follow the Duggars on their follow-up seriesCounting On, as well as on their various social media pages. Led by parents Jim Bob and Michelle, the Duggar family now consists of 19 kids, eight sons- and daughters-in-law, and 13 grandchildren -- and counting!

As the eldest Duggar kids are growing up, getting married and having kids of their own, it can be hard to keep track of everyone. Here's ET's handy Duggar family tree -- from Jim Bob to Josie -- tracking marriages, births and all the other big announcements!

Strangest Duggar family rules
The Duggars are only permitted to join social media after they're engaged to be married. Yup, you read that right -- no ring, no Instagram. Jinger launched her Instagram account just after announcing her engagement to Jeremy Vuolo.
The strict social media rule means that oldest daughter Jana (far right) is unable to have any social media accounts, as she's still single at 27.
The only permitted show of physical affection before marriage are side hugs. That means that the kids' very first kisses are on their wedding days. Jessa and her new husband decided to keep theirs a little private: "We didn’t do ours on stage," she said. "We had ours in private after the ceremony. We ran out and then went to a room by ourselves. That was really special for us."
Although sex is forbidden before marriage, the Duggar parents expect that once vows are exchanged, the lovemaking commences -- often. "You need to always be available when he calls," Michelle has said.
Nearly all dates must be chaperoned by parents Jim Bob and Michelle. If neither parent is available, an older sibling will tag along to keep an eye on things.
Duggar daughters are required to exclusively wear dresses and skirts -- so fans were stunned to see newly-married Jinger wearing shorts and pants! According to reports, her husband gave her permission to do so.
All texts are group texts. Yup! There are no private convos going on here. One example: When Ben Seewald jokingly texted fiance Jessa "Give me a ring," dad Jim Bob was looped in to quickly respond, "No ring yet."  
This one's a given. There is no smoking or drinking to be had at any times with the Duggars.
This may not be an explicit rule, but according to the Duggar daughters, mom Michelle always has the house stocked with pregnancy tests for her married daughters.
The family does not approve of Halloween, reportedly saying that magic and witches are representative of a "demonic realm God wants us to stay away from."
No bikinis for this family -- or really, any average swimsuits at all. "It's just too hard for the guys to try and keep their eyes averted." Michelle has said. Although they've previously said beach trips are forbidden, the family did hit the coast in 2016.
