TONTITOWN, Ark., Sept. 15 (UPI) -- The Duggar family celebrated matriarch Michelle Duggar's birthday over the weekend.

Jill Duggar and sister Jessa Duggar were among the siblings who wished their mom a happy 49th birthday with sweet video posts Sunday. Jill and Jessa are the second and third-eldest Duggar daughters, respectively.

"Happy birthday, mama!" Jill said with husband Derick Dillard and 5-month-old son Israel by her side. "Israel loves you, too. He says, 'Happy birthday, grandma! Happy birthday, grandma, I love you!'"

"Happy birthday, mom!" Jessa began. "Two things that really stand out to me about the way you parent is, for one, your patience. You're very patient with the kids ... and also, just your love for Jesus ... I love you so much and I really look up to you."

Michelle and husband Jim Bob Duggar married in 1984, and have 19 kids, whose ages range from five to 27. The couple are also grandparents to five children: eldest son Josh Duggar's kids Mackynzie, Michael, Marcus and Meredith, and Jill's son Israel.

The Duggar family came to fame on TLC series 19 Kids & Counting, which was canceled in the wake of Josh's sex abuse scandal. The reality star was further disgraced after admitting in August to cheating on wife Anna Duggar.
