Jackson Levi Duggar, born on May 23, 2004, is a reality star and media personality famously known for his family television series, “17 Kids and Counting.” Before then, however, he had featured in four other television specials, still about his family and their lifestyle. This was not the first time he was in front of a camera though, as his parents had documented his birth and that was the first time he came into the limelight. “17 Kids and Counting” started when Duggar was four-years-old but ended up being canceled when he was at the age of ten. This did not deter his family because shortly after, another show, “Counting on” began. He occasionally featured on it but not as much as the first one. We are so excited that we are celebrating him today.
Based on what we have seen so far, Jackson Duggar is destined for better and bigger achievements in his career as an entertainer and a media personality. Duggar was born on May 23, 2004, to his father, Jim Bob Duggar, and his mother, Michelle Ruark. He was born at the Washington Regional Medical Center and was their fifteenth child. What is more surprising is that they wanted four others to follow him. He fortunately was the first of their children to be aired on national television. He was featured on the Discovery Health Channel special “14 Children and Pregnant Again.”
In every household with a child, there are chores and Duggar’s was no different. His parent’s assigned chores but called them a different name, “jurisdictions.” His jurisdiction changed with the years as he grew older. His parents had derived a method where a young child was paired up with an older child for them to be taken care of. Such care included bathing, feeding, and dressing each other. By 2009, the parents had switched from a pair to teams that were led by their eldest daughters. They were four and so they had four teams. Duggar’s team was made up of Jana, Jason, and Josie.
He was raised in a household that homeschooled their children and he was no different. His acting career started early on. “17 Kids and Counting” was released in 2008, and he then featured occasionally on “Counting On” which premiered in 2015, and K1 Discovery just a year after he was born in 2005. His family also released a couple of television documentaries and movies about their family and lifestyle.
He features in the documentary series “K1 Discovery” when he is just one year old.
He features in another documentary series when he is four years old, “17 Kids and Counting.”
After “17 Kids and Counting” is canceled, his family releases another television series, “Counting on.”
He is a groomsman at his brother Justin’s wedding and his responsibility is to ensure everything goes smoothly.
