Jim Bob Duggar Pays Wife the Ultimate Tribute

by at .

Counting On matriarch Michelle Duggar celebrated her 53rd birthday on Friday, September 13.

But she didn't do it alone.

In light of this special occasion, numerous members of the reality star's family came out and shared a few very special tribute to the mother of 19.

We might as well start with her partner in crime, which we only mean in slight jest considering she and her husband teamed up years ago to cover up for son Josh Duggar's child molestation scandal.

"Happy 53rd Birthday to my best friend! I love you, Michelle!! You are the sweetest wife, a loving mother, and a fun grandmother," Jim Duggar wrote on Instagram as a caption to the photo above.

He added:

"I have really enjoyed our special get away the last couple of days for your birthday at [The Keeter Center] in Branson! I love spending time with you.

"You are my #1 encourager, you are my business advisor, and my spiritual accountability partner. You’re my best friend.

"I am so thankful for the wonderful 35 years of marriage, I look forward to spending the rest of my life with you."

Michelle and Jim Bob, of course, are the parents of 19 children.

They rose to fame as the anchors of the series 19 Kids and Counting, which TLC canceled due to the aforementioned Josh Duggar scandal.

It then spun this program off to Counting On, which focuses on just a few of Michelle and Jim Bob's offspring.

One of them, Joy-Anna, wrote the following late last week to Michelle:

"I love you, Momma!!! You truly are the BEST mother."

Then there was daughter Jinger (Duggar) Vuolo, who shared a sweet birthday wish to her mother in her Instagram Story, including numerous throwback photos of Duggar and a video of her mom on roller skates.

"Happy birthday to this incredible woman," she wrote, adding:

"My mom is so beautiful, loving and kind. She is the most patient woman I have ever known. She is so selfless … and she can out skate any kid at the rink!"

"She’s an amazing woman of many talents. Happy birthday, Mom! I love you more than words could ever say."

Jill Duggar also chimed in with some very nice words about her parent.

"Happy Birthday to my amazing mama! I love you so much and am beyond blessed to have been raised by such wonderful parents," Jill wrote on her Instagram page.

We'll go ahead and conclude this post with a few heartfelt messages from Counting On fans, all of whom also wished Duggar a happy birthday in her comments section.

"Happy birthday Michelle!! You two melt my heart, I can only hope to have a love as strong as yours one day," one person wrote.

Added another: "Happy Birthday Michelle! May you both be blessed. Your children are so blessed and fortunate to have you as parents."

And then one more: "Happy birthday Michelle, you are a beautiful example of an all-around lovely human being."
