Jill Duggar admits parents Jim Bob and Michelle 'aren't always invited' after they miss grandson Samuel's birthday party

JILL Duggar shared her parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, "aren't always invited" to their children's birthday.

Her admission comes after they missed their grandson Samuel's birthday party.

The Duggars Snark Reddit account shared an exchange between Jill and a fan.

The follower commented to Jill: "A guess the parent Duggar's choose not to be grandparents to these boys. What a shame they are like that what with all the family values they talk about. Sorry, Jill. You don't need those kinds of people in your lives. At least Jana was allowed to go."

Jill replied: "The fire truck birthday was just something we worked out between us and James. My parents always send or bring gifts for the boys' birthdays. We've had to put some boundaries in place over time for ourselves as learn to navigate life and work toward healing and restoration. They aren't always to everything and vice versa.

Jill reunited with her estranged brother James and sister Jana for her son’s birthday on Thursday, after the family’s been fairly distant following Josh’s arrest.

Samuel turned four, and his mom helped him celebrate his big day by inviting his aunt and uncle over, as well as with a very large surprise – a ride in a fire truck.

Jill shared it all on Instagram, starting with “Birthday king” Samuel running out with a green paper crown on to open some gift bags from mom Jill and dad Derick, before running to the door for an even bigger surprise.

“Who’s here,” Jill asked the now 4-year-old as he ran outside.

She captioned the video of him finding out: “Sam had a surprise today! We planned to go to @chickfila with @jamesduggar for his birthday but he didn’t know Uncle James was coming in the fire truck!”

Jill also shared earlier this week her parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar did not attend their son-in-law Derick Dillard's law school graduation ceremony.

Jill and Derick have distanced themselves from her parents since leaving Counting On and their subsequent family feud.

Yesterday, Jill shared a video of Derick's graduation ceremony from law school.

The dad-of-two noted he wore the same shoes as he did at his high school graduation, 14 years ago.

James Duggar, 20, was also in attendance, but Jill's parents, Jim Bob and Michelle were nowhere to be found.

Jill also shared their post-ceremony celebration with a brisket feast and cake.


A petition calling for Counting On's cancelation came after Josh Duggar's arrest on multiple child pornography charges.

"But the bottom line is, the network really wants to be on the right side of this scandal ahead of Josh's trial. It was important for bosses to be seen to have taken action," an insider told The Sun.

Fans had launched a petition to boycott Counting On when the horrifying details of Josh's child pornography arrest emerged.

Josh, 33, had pleaded not guilty after being charged with two counts of receiving and possessing child pornography.
