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.

I agree with most of you. God gave us the power to procreate, however he also gave us free will and common sense. It is a known medical fact with each pregnancy and birth the woman's body is traumatized. The more kids you have the harder it is on your kidneys, heart, and circulatory system. I hope for all the best for them, but I really think it's time for her to through in the towel or at least wear a condom. Three was enough for me as I can only be a mom to one at a time and a wife to one man.

These people are fouling the planet with their ongoing litter. I'd like to have 2 minutes alone with that pair, I'd neuter the sob faster than you can say Bobbit.

We need to get away from celebrating people like the Duggar's the Octomom and the Josselins. It takes no talent to pump out a baby, but it does take talent to be a decent parent and bring up a human being who will actually be a responsible citizen capable of making a contribution to society (vs. just living off it, consuming every available resource). I'd like to give an award to couples who realize they have no talent or patience for raising children and opt to not procreate!

I agree with the many who said that it's not fair that the mother has all these babies, and puts the responsibility of caring for them on her other children. I agree that they should cut back on sex around the time that she can get pregnant. The size of your family stopped being cute and novel several children ago. Now, it's getting old and makes you guys look like attention whores. Hey, remember this: just because you can (reproduce), doesn't mean you SHOULD.

God did say to go forth and multiply the earth, but I don't think that he meant for thr Duggar's to do it entirely by themselves!
I know that God takes care of His own, but I can't see how this many pregnancies could be healthy.
I don't think that it is really any of my business, but I think she could use a break!
God Bless

I cannot believe that Michelle Duggar is expecting another child. Can't she just let her daughter-in-law have the attention and glory? Nope instead of it being about Josh's baby, it has to be about Michelle.
None of these children really know the real world too! Where men AND women go to school (not stupid homeschool), HAVE FRIENDS, GO TO COLLEGE, find their spouse and then settle down and have children. They are just sheltering their children. I cannot imagine a good life being sitting at home not allowed to wear pants and raise my siblings. Also not being able to go out and have fun, go to the movies, and mall with my friends. It makes me sick that the Duggars do this.

I also wanted to agree with many of you that it's just a shame that they are making the older kids raise the younger kids. That is totally unfair to make them grow up before their time. I don't understand why so many are patting them on the back for this? For what? For having so many children that they are making their children raise the children? Michelle pops one out and a year later (if that) she hands if off so she can pop out another to pass down the line. SHAME on you Jim and Michelle! That brings tears to my eyes just imagining what hell the older kids are REALLY going through.. you all are only seeing what they are showing in front of that camera... when those lights go off there is NO WAY they are that shiney and happy.. I feel sorry for them to have to live in that hell.

I just can't figure out this family.. something seems to be really off for anyone to want to continuously have baby after baby like this. They are just not using logical or reasonable thinking skills with this behavior and this leads me to wonder why are they really having all these children? Is it an obsessive compulsive disorder? Is Jim Bob forcing Michelle to be a forever incubator? Do they not think maybe they ought to sit back and just enjoy what they have and enjoy the grandbabies yet to come? There is no way possible they can give these children all the individual attention they deserve and that's not fair.. you can see the depression on many of those kids' faces.. Jim Bob needs to keep his snake in the cage and focus on their already-born kids that NEED their attention desperately!!

All I can say is: R U Kidding Me !!!! God Bless !!! Yes, I agree they seem like they are doing fine....BUT really how much time do they really have to give to each of those kids. I have just 4 and I know there are times that I have felt I miss something for one of them. Who am I to judge, BUT if your on TV and getting pay for it I suppose we do have a right to make a comment. Maybe that is how he is going to pay for college.... Then in that case, dam sign me up...I'm not sure how I'm going to pay for just 4 children.

God Bless the Duggar Family!!!! I wish there we're more families like theirs in the world. Some people can't even handle 1 or 2 kids. All their kids are really smart, talented, well behaved and very good looking.
