Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar became famous for raising a staggeringly large family.
Yet ironically, these days, it seems like half of their children have been shoved away from the spotlight.
We suppose that’s a natural consequence of life in such a massive family.
With the eldest of Jim Bob and Michelle’s offspring getting married and popping out babies like there’s no tomorrow, it’s only natural that some of their younger siblings would get short shrift in terms of screen time.
Fortunately, Johannah, Jennifer, Jordyn and Josie have their sights set on something bigger than reality TV stardom.
Or at least something that could prove to be equally lucrative.
Along with their cousin — Josh Duggar’s daughter Mackynzie — youngest of the Duggar daughters have released their first album as vocal group The Duggar Girls.
“We are SO excited to announce Happy Heart CD!” the Duggars wrote on their Facebook page.
“The younger girls have worked so hard on this and we love the results! We pray that it would encourage and bless you!”
While it would be incredible if The Duggar Girls turned out to be a rugged hip-hop crew, and the Happy Heart CD were a collection of speaker-rattling trap bangers, it seems the family has sadly chosen a much more traditional route.
The 10-track album consists of nine religious ditties and — for some reason — a rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” which you can hear Josie belting out in the clip above.
As The Ashley’s Reality Roundup reports, the Duggars have adopted an interesting strategy for marketing the younger members of the clan.
Perhaps fearing that they’ve oversaturated the market with pious young ladies, Jim Bob and Michelle have assured fans that they need not concern themselves with devoting extra brain space to new Duggar personalities, as the youngest daughters are just 2.0 versions of their older sisters.
“We’ve always said that the four youngest Duggar girls’ personalities are like the four oldest girls on repeat,” they wrote on The Duggar Girls’ official website.
“Everyone has a twin. Jana/Johannah, Jill/Jennifer, Jinger/Jordyn, and Jessa/Josie.”
Of course, this isn’t the first collaborative project among Duggar siblings.
Back in 2013, the eldest four sisters released a memoir called Growing Up Duggar.
And now, their youngest sisters — who have similar names and copycat personalities — are releasing an album, and if you think that’s slightly creepy … well, you’re right, but you’re also not in the Duggars’ target audience, so they probably don’t care.
