The Untold Truth Of Jed Duggar

Jed and his brother were born on Dec. 30, 1998.

However, Jed has been in front of the camera since he was just 5 years old when he appeared on the first Duggar family television special, 14 Children and Pregnant Again!, which aired on the Discovery Health Channel.

After four years of specials about his family, the Duggars got their first reality tv show, 17 Kids and Counting, when Jed was 9  years old. As the Duggars kept having babies, the TLC series title was changed to 19 Kids and Counting before the show was canceled in July 2015.
