The distance between the adults and this newborn baby is very telling. If older son and wife behave anything like his folks (please, no) this is exactly the kind of relationship (or lackthereof) they’ll have with the child.
They just can’t wait to get started on the next one !
this is that Duggar family that has 19 kids and that is there oldest kids first child.
The sentiment is sweet (grandparents celebrating, parents celebrating) but the composition is just odd, and the fake crib looks like something you use to gate puppies.
I love their show, but this photo is weird
I must be the odd one out… but all I realized is how HUGE the crib is.
This family is on The Learning Channel and Discovery Health. Looks like they’ve Learned and Discovered how to reproduce!
DUGGAAAARRRRRSSSS! I LOVE THEM!
I totally agree!! GO DUGGARS!!!
This doesn’t even look like a real baby…looks like one of the uber-expensive, real-looking dolls from the Franklin Mint that one sees advertised in magazines, no?
awww that baby is adorable
I agree! What a peanut!?
That baby is sooooo very beautiful!
Umm…. I get this is an awkward photo – but anyone notice that this is a HUGE crib and the fact that the slats are way to far apart and hte baby’s head could get stuck… scary.
19 kids, do you reckon she’s incontinent? That’d have to do serious damage to your plumbing…
These are the Duggars, honestly people do you have nothing better to do than bash other people. So maybe you wouldn’t take a picture like this, but it’s their choice how they take the picture, so stop bashing them!
do you have anything better to do then watch TV?? I do, nd apparantly me and you have something in common because we come to this site get a life and let people say whatever they want. Don’t come to this site if it bothers you so much
It’s The Duggars!
This is indeed extremely awkwards. For me, anyway.
It’s Josh and Anna’s daughter. I didn’t notice at first that it was the Duggar’s until I looked at the title and the caption and the picture a second time lol. I’m amazed by all the children that the grandparents have lol I too am guilty of watching the show too much lol. I at one point could name all the kids.
What’s awesome is that you dont know who the baby belongs to. Is it Jim Bob and Michelles? Or Josh and Annas? My money is on it being Mackynzie Renee (Josh and Annas baby) because Jordyn Grayce is like a year old now, and the newest Jim Bob and Michelle baby isn’t due till Spring.
I watch this show too much.
My cousins are exactly 9 months apart in age.. It does happen. The second one was a couple of weeks early.
Actually, knowing that these are the Duggars makes this family photo LESS awkward!
it’s the couple on the right’s baby. its the DUGGARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Adorable baby, for sure.
awww who doesn’t love the Duggars..I have to admit I am jealous of Momma Duggar cus I can guarantee she is getting it more than I am!
These are the duggars… the couple on the left are Michelle and Jim Bob duggar and the couple on the right are Josh and Anna Duggar… Josh is the oldest and the baby is his and Anna’s… but i must admit this is a little awkward
That’s the Duggars-JimBob and Michelle(grandparents), their son, daughter-in-law and their new baby. Now it doesn’t seem so awkward
Well, yes, it still does.
Parents & grandparents? The couple appear a bit young for that I would think. I was thinking more of a communal marriage cult from our West somewhere.
I didn’t recognize who this was before reading the comments, but my thoughts were that the baby belonged to the couple on the left because she still looks pregnant and most new moms do still look pregnant for a little while.
oh lordy! That’s cringe worthy… just ick. I don’t care if you are married its just wierd to be standing right next to your parents and in-laws smooching… wierd
I’m sad I recognized them
Whats even more sad is that her aunt will be only months older :S
The Duggar grandparents (Jim Bob and Michelle) already have a baby who is younger than the son and his wife’s baby, I believe, and if I’m not mistaken, she (Michelle) is pregnant again. So they will have at least two children who are younger than the son and his wife’s oldest child.
That makes no sense.Human prenancies take 9 months, you do realize. The baby is only a month old. If Michelle had a baby after her grandaughter, and was now pregnant as well, she’d have to be pregnant within a few weeks of birthin a child. Have you ever heard of a woman pregnant two weeks after labour? Jordan will be 1 in December, so 10 months older. But there will be 1 younger, due in March.
Yes, I have heard of that, actually. They’re called “Irish Twins” — kids who are born within a year of each other. The Duggars have 19 children and were married in 1984. That’s 17 deliveries (two sets of twins) in 25 years. They didn’t have their first child until 1988, so actually it’s 17 deliveries in 21 years.
(I’m not a Duggar fan — I think they’re creepy — but this interested me, so I found some information on their website.)
Getting pregnant again within a couple months, sure. But within two weeks? Unlikely!
it’s mindboggling, but it does happen. I know of a woman whose (gross, possibly criminal) husband impregnated her in the hospital after she’d JUST GIVEN BIRTH. their kids were 8 1/2 months apart.
yep, I worked with a lady who showed up tp her 6 week post-partum check up already preggers.
actually, my OB/GYN told me on my 6 wk post partum check up that 20% of his patients are pregnant by their 6 wk post partum check up. It’s really really common. I can’t imagine it, but it happens.
odd……why are grandpa and grandma dugger even in the picture. Nothing like stealing the show….or maybe they see one more little soul to brainwash.
This to me is very disturbing. Why would they take pics of them kissing over a new baby.. Im confused.. ohh so confused….
Am I missing something, pictures are supposed to tell a story and I just am not getting it? If I were the girls parents, I would feel Really left out.
Exactly, why were they not included in the family portrait? Are they not family anymore?
Because it’s very likely it’s a photo shoot for the show.
Another Duggar was created right after this kiss! Jim Bob, leave her alone already!
yeah…they’re probably just all proud they’re finally allowed to kiss so they show it off whenever they can.
Awesome comment! Yeah, when they were only allowed to hold hands (for which they had to ask permission), it was like their hands were fornicating, OMG, they were so into holding/massaging/rubbing each other’s hands!
Like I said before, to each his own, but I absolutely cannot imagine never kissing until the wedding. Hell, my husband half-missed my lips and sort of kissed me on the chin when we got married. Had that been our first kiss, I would have been rather confused.
pick up the baby! she is lonely and cold!
I could agree more. poor thing stop kissing and pick her up.
I love the Duggars, but this photo is awkward due to the weird kissing poses. It would be cute if both couples were just posing on either side of the baby. BTW that baby is wearing Gymboree, so I guess Anna isn’t following in the footsteps of Ma Duggar and sewing all the baby clothes herself!
I don’t think Michelle sews their clothes herself. I saw an episode where they went to a huge baby stuff sale in another town (from where they live) and she bought stuff for her baby there. Also I know they buy clothes at second hand stores.
And yes, the kissing is weird. And I hope AFP isn’t violating any copyright laws by posting something from a magazine….
The Duggars don’t make all their baby clothes!
You can get alot of nice name brand stuff second hand w/o paying full price.
Yeah they probably bought used and saved the difference!
Seriously the funniest comment on this pic!!!
Are these the same couples that were kissing in the field with Mom and Dad standing right there? I guess the baby was finally born!
LOL! Too funny!
I know they all thinkin we too Proud and Fertile
Think we just too Proud & Fertile
Think we just too Proud & Fertile
We just too Proud & Fertile
Just too Proud & Fertile
We fill a whole bus
And all y’all thinkin we too Proud & Fertile…
Maybe it’s like that biblical story and they don’t know who’s it is and they’re just waiting to cut her in half.
I was thinking the same thing! Funny and awkward. Yeah, I live under a rock and wasn’t familiar with the actual story behind this.
Oh wait – that’s the Duggar grandbaby! Dang, G-Mamma Duggar looks Good! considering.
this made me spit coffee through my nose
OW, i was drinking chai!
I’m a fan of their show, and didn’t think this was all that awkward… until I imagined a photographer telling my parents or in-law’s and my husband and I to kiss for a photo like this. Then it turned awkward and uncomfortable. Especially with that innocent little one trapped in her crib in front of them. Why don’t they all yell “Yay for sex and procreation!” in the next shot?
Yeah, I mean, kissing in front of a new born baby, that’s just disgusting! What will the poor sod think of its parents? That they actually like each other?
It’s ok to show you like each other, but to have the parents and grandparents kissing each other so that you’re not sure who’s the parents? That’s just awkward……
gee thanks mary. i didn’t get why this pic was awkward ’till you explained it.
and shucks, do you really think it’s okay for a baby to think that its parents…*like*…each other?!
I don’t care who they are this is awkward….awkward kissing pose(s), awkward placement of baby (give that kid a spotlight!). While it is NOT awkward to have gma and gpa in a photo with the proud parent it’s the kissing that takes this over the top in awkwardness. Well,maybe not over the top, but definitively uncomfortable.
I don’t think that’s grandma and grandpa. It’s just another couple relatively close in age…maybe a brother or sister.
No, that’s the grandparents. This is the Duggar family from the show “20 Kids and Counting”… The couple on the right are the parents and the couple on the left are the grandparents.
IT IS THE DUGGAR FAMILY. THOSE ARE THE GRANDPARENTS AND PARENTS. THE GRANDPARENTS HAVE ALMOST 19 CHILDREN AND ANOTHER ONE ON THE WAY.
THIS NEEDED CAPSLOCK.
How can you have “ALMOST 19 children and another one on the way”? Wouldn’t you have either 18 OR 19 children…not “almost 19″ children???
It’s definitely Grandma & Grandpa. The baby’s parents are Josh and Anna, on the right; and the couple on the left are Josh’s parents, Jim Bob and Michelle. Michelle is pregnant with another baby due in March.
I thought it was a surrogate couple and the adopting couple…not the grandparents…this is just weird.
I totally thought it was a surrogate thing too. I think that’s what makes it so awkward.
