Is this awkward… or is it just us?!

Josh Duggar made sure to make Jim Bob Duggar‘s Father’s Day extra special this year with a video tribute to the family patriarch!

On Sunday, a portion of the Duggar children recorded videos for the 19 Kids & Counting dad which have since been uploaded to the family’s website.

He shared:

“And I can just also think of all the moments where you’ve been there for us through the hard times and through the good times. I know that your investment in each one of our lives is priceless and we’re so grateful for you.

And I’m grateful that you are the grandpa to our grandkids or your grandkids and we’re just so grateful for your investment in our lives. Happy Father’s Day.”

This tribute comes mere weeks after the family faced criticism when Josh’s molestation past surfaced. It was revealed that Jim Bob and mom Michelle Duggar had a hand in trying to cover up the scandal when it first occurred.


Josh’s wife, Anna Duggar proudly joined him in the video and added:

“Thank you for raising such an awesome husband.”

It’s seems Josh was feeling extra grateful as he also took to Instagram to post a photo (above) of him and his father.

He wrote:

“Happy Father’s Day to my dad, Jim Bob. We’re all so grateful for you and glad to spend the day with you!@duggarfam

Hmm, very inneresting. We were somewhat surprised by the public gesture as Josh has laid relatively low since the scandal broke — whereas his parents addressed the issue on national television.

TLC has yet to announce whether the popular reality show has been officially cancelled, but episodes have been pulled from the network and Hulu. We guess only time will tell!

Be sure to ch-ch-check out Josh’s full tribute to Jim Bob (below)!
