Duggar Family Expecting 19th Freaking Child!

by at . Comments

Sometimes, 18 kids is simply not enough, so Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of Tonitown, Ark., are expecting a new addition to their household this spring.

That's right, at that point they will have five more children than Nadya "Octomom" Suleman and 11 more children than Jon and Kate Gosselin. Wow.

"We are so thrilled," says Michelle, 42. "We just can't believe it is happening."

You can't, Michelle? Not after the previous 18 times you were pregnant?

Her husband, Jim Bob Duggar, 44, agrees: "I never gets old. We are so grateful for each child. We look forward to our first grand baby and 19th child."

Their first grandchild is due soon, as their oldest son Joshua, 21, is apparently getting a fast start in joining the family profession of making humans.

He and his wife are expecting a daughter next month, who will be older than her new aunt or uncle: "I think it is going to be awesome," Josh said.

THAT'S A LOTTA KIDS: The Duggar family is still growing, too.

Ridiculous as it seems to have 19 children, at least the Duggars live debt-free (cough, Octomom) in a house they built themselves with their kids.

Their names all begin with J, naturally. Yep, all 18 of them.

There's Joshua, twins Jana and John-David, 19; Jill, 18; Jessa, 16; Jinger, 15; Joseph, 14; Josiah, 13; Joy-Anna, 11; twins Jedidiah and Jeremiah, 10; Jason, 9; James, 8; Justin, 6; Jackson, 5; Johanna, 3; Jennifer, 2, and Jordyn-Grace, 8 months.

Eat your hearts out, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian.

Like Jon and Kate Plus 8, the Duggar family's TLC series, 18 Kids and Counting, may have to be renamed in light of these recent life-changing events.


how are you all guys getting along with the kids


Large families should be derided and despised. All large families are dysfunctional. Parents are supposed to raise their children, not other siblings. People from large families are not normal and have strong interpersonal issues and have poor one-to-one relationships with other people. People from large families often have no friends because other people do not want to associate with them as they are abnormal. People from smaller families are more normal and better off all around.


The Duggar partents are doing a great job with how they rasie each child. I would like to see people help them out! with gift cards to Wal-mart. so the children can get new clothes, and they don't have to go to the thrift store for some time.
Also let give them can food. And if someone can donate their time in adding two new bedroom with a batroom. So the older girls and boys can have their room with out all the younger ones, the room is getting to many children in them. Also would like to see a book shelf in their room with books on it. If a company help build the two new bedrooms, then your company name would be on TV and would help you get more bussines in the long run.


Leave the Duggar's along. IT IS Their business how many children they have. The money is not comming out of your pocket. This is a good christian family.


They seem like a cult and they have created their own little kingdom. They aren't all bad but,I think it would be very difficult for any one of the children to express that they may want something different than the rest of the herd. Of course they don't care what anyone else thinks because they honestly think they are holier than thou. The kids suffer - I know I'm from a large family.


The Duggars are a respectful and loving family and the kids are amazingly well-behaved and happy.
I admire their devotion to their faith and may they have as many children as God gives them.


It's unfortunate that they deny their daughters education. It is also unfortunate that after a year, they hand each baby off to a "buddy" older sister, who is expected to feed, clothe, bathe, change, and potty-train the child entirely on her own, not to mention watch it at all times. No help from Mommy or Daddy. The older girls are basically teenage mothers, as they are completely in charge of their "little buddies", even to the extent that if the child cries, wets the bed, or gets sick at night, they must get up to help it. Mommy and Daddy have nothing to do with it. The oldest girls are college age, their education has been offered to be payed in full, but their parents won't let them go because they are needed around the house, and are supposed to focus on becoming obedient wives. I think it is unfortunate.


It is amazing how many rude and unkind people (let alone the ones inidduals that have to cuss in an attempt to impart an idea) share their ignorance with the world ... Obviously many posters were not taught manners when they were growing up! The world would be a better place if more children (and adults) were taught ... if you do not have anything nice to say, do not say anything at all ...


There sure are a lot of unhappy, nasty, rude people out there. Live and let live...they're not on welfare, they are totally self supporting. The kids seem happy and well adjusted, and are free to start thier own lives when they are ready. How come no one can just be happy for someone else any more?


It's a vagina - not a clown car.
