Jana Duggar Celebrates Mom and Dad's 35th Anniversary With Sweet New Photo

Three-and-a-half decades and 19 kids later, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are celebrating another wedding anniversary with a little help from their oldest daughter. On Sunday, Jana Duggar, oftentimes called the “Cinderella” Duggar thanks to her own single status, took to Instagram to wish her parents a happy 35th wedding anniversary.

“Happy 35th Anniversary to these two amazing folks whom I am honored to call my parents!” Jana wrote. “Love you so much, Mom [and] Dad!”

The eldest of the Counting On daughters shared the sweet message alongside a photo of her parents.
