The Ups & Downs of the Duggar Family

Originally posted 05/22/2015 09:20PM

Of the 2,460 people who live in Tontitown, Arkansas, none have made quite as many headlines as the 19-plus – and counting – in the Duggar family.

Since Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar invited cameras into their lives in 2008, viewers have seen the TLC stars through courtships, new additions and no shortage of controversy. Most recently, eldest son Josh Duggar spoke out in response to reports that he was once accused of molesting five underage girls as a teen.

"Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably, for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret," Josh, who resigned from his position at the Family Research Council as a result of the accusations becoming public, told PEOPLE in a statement. TLC has pulled 19 Kids and Counting from its schedule amid the reports.

Party planning Duggar-style can sometimes get a little messy.

But when the festivities are celebrating the arrival of another member of the extended Duggar clan, it'll take more than a little dripping paint to spoil the fun.

On Tuesday's episode of TLC's hit reality show 19 Kids and Counting – titled "Anna's Having a ..." – patriarch Jim Bob Duggar, 49, oversees decorations for Josh and Anna's upcoming gender reveal party for their fourth child. (Spoiler alert: The family already told PEOPLE it's a girl!)

The group was tasked with dyeing a bunch of pink flamingos blue, and figuring out the best way to paint those awkwardly shaped birds proved a difficult endeavor for the younger male members of the family.

Originally posted 04/28/2015 10:20PM

Born at just 25 weeks old, 5-year-old Josie Duggar has made great strides since she came into the world weighing in at just over a pound.

However, on this week's episode of 19 Kids and Counting, she suffered a medical crisis when she began seizing out of nowhere.

Also, Josh put Derick Dillard through Parenting 101 as he and Jill await the birth of their first child, and the remaining Duggar girls – that is, minus the married-off Jill and Jessa – renovated their bedroom. We also learned that when Jessa said she wasn't a great cook – despite cooking lessons in Italy during her honeymoon with Ben – she truly meant it.

While Jessa and Ben Seewald jetted off to Europe to enjoy their honeymoon, the rest of the Duggar clan renovated the home they'd be moving into upon their return. Tough life!

A big day for baby news, Anna also announced her fourth pregnancy on Tuesday's episode of 19 Kids and Counting on the same day that Jessa, in real time, announced her first pregnancy.

As Jill put it on this week's 19 Kids, "It's safe to say that if you're in a Duggar home you're probably not far from a box of pregnancy tests." Were truer words ever spoken?
