Duggar Family Shares First Photo of New Addition To Their Family, Tyler, While Requesting for More Privacy
The Duggar family from "19 Kids and Counting" has been very quiet about the newest addition to their family, but just recently, Christian couple Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar figured it's about time they introduce Tyler to their fans after gaining guardianship.
On their Facebook page, they shared a photo of a young boy who is finishing off a huge jug of milk. "Got milk? Tyler is getting to finish off the jug!" they wrote.
Meanwhile, the Duggar Family Blog shared another photo of Tyler holding up a personalised Swiss army knife together with Michael Duggar. They said Tyler is "an extended family member from Michelle's side," although they prefer not to reveal the details of the situation that led to their legal guardianship of Tyler.
The family has requested for privacy concerning Tyler's situation. They said though that if they have any new photos or news concerning him, they would share it on the blog.
Earlier, ET shared court documents stating that Jim Bob and Michelle had been granted temporary guardianship of 8-year-old Tyler after they filed an emergency petition last Aug. 26. The guardianship was made permanent on Nov. 21.
The boy's mother reportedly "exhibited a pattern of behaviour demonstrating that she is presently unable to meet Tyler's health, safety, and other needs" since she is unemployed, has no means of transport, and presently under probation.
According to ET, she agreed to sign off on the Duggars' guardianship, provided that they allow her supervised visits with her son.
