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.


Cindy you are right on. The older children are raising the younger children. When they go on trips you see queenie & king get on the bus. They don't have a clue what is packed. The older children have organized the clothes and packed them and loaded them onto the bus. On trips you see the older children are pushing the strollers or holding the younger children. What a shame these children get no down time or alone time. Meals are the same the older children are in there cooking or cleaning. It is great they are learning raising children but there is a limit to pushing the parents responsibilities onto the children. They will have an opportunity to raise their own children. No more ! They are like a pair of rabbits. No thought process.....


I have watched the show a couple of times because I was curious. With these conytinuous additions to the family, I am wondering if their religion only permits sex for the purpose of pro-creation. If they enjoy sex (which is good because it is a part of healthy living), but cannot indulge for just enjoyment sake, then perhaps that is why they keep having more children. So they can have guiltless sex. Just wondering!


God bless the pretty family im totally agree with bobby says the family now the bible pray before eat and went you see the show you feel so comfortable she have somemany kids but the mom always have a pretty smile she scream like crazy i love the family we grow like them biblie GOD love, respect, i do same with my child that family is a great example for every body not matter where you come from i love the show .Bless them always and each baby in that wonderful family...


Oh my goodness how do they afford all them kidss! and she must have had some twins and triplets or something? cause thats alot of kidsss to have one at a time lol!!


you people are soo rude! get over yourselves. im happy for them, its great they are able to love & support all their children. guess your parents never taugh yous to be poliet! SHUTTT UPP!


It is my opinion, after watching this show, that something is not quite right about that family. I cannot believe that the older children are happy about how much time they must spend raising their younger siblings...it just doesn't seem fair somehow. I know that they are earning a lot of money to perpetuate this story, but it really sickens me to see people reproduce so irresponsibly. I love children...had four of my own...and fostered other children who needed a loving parent figure in their lives. There is simply too much need out there, among too many youngsters, for any set of parents to have so darned many children...just my opinion, so don't go postal on me you ultra conservative right wingers.


I just knew she would get pregnant again when her daughther in law did. Michelle couldn't let her have the glory and enjoy her pregnancy and had to beat her. By the way it's not god's will to get pregnant. It's not using birth control and women know when they can get pregnant durning the month. Michelle just wants to be pregnant every year. Well when the time comes and they have a not healthy baby do you think she will stop? Oh that will be GODS will.


BTW "Give me a break" the oldest son is 21 and MARRIED, and he and his wife (daughter in law) are having a baby. I work in welfare, I would never choose to have this many kids, but I've always thought that if people can afford them, then, go ahead, do it. As for over population, this country would be depleting its population if we weren't letting people in from other countries. So, one family that has this many kids in over populating? I guess maybe we should blame them the deforestization issues too, since they use paper and wood too. I regularly see women that have kids by three or four different men, no child support and no help, and these guys have kids by many women. Why not complain about them and single parenthood and poverty rather than a responsible loving, intact family>


I think this actually is terrible. One of the daughters are having a baby and then Mom gets pregnant again too...give me a break...this is why I don't do reality shows...this world is over populated now...we have people like this that think this is great and actually watch this stuff!!! Whats wrong with this picture!!!


I am worried about overpopulation. The earth is overpopulated now. How anyone could fail to see that is blind. There is absolutely no reponsibility in what this couple has done. I am not p'oed that they didn't abort. I am a liberal and don't believe in abortion (what a shock!!) for myself, but if others choose that it is not my business. This is not my business, but I am p'oed because they're overpopulating and taking no responsibility. What if every couple acted this way. This couple is goofy and irresponsible


Duggar Family Quotes

And so be available, and not just available, but be joyfully available for him. Smile and be willing to say, 'Yes, sweetie I am here for you,' NO MATTER WHAT, even though you may be exhausted and big and pregnant and you may not feel like he feels. 'I'm still here for you and I'm going to meet that need because I know it's a need for you.' - Michelle

Anyone can fix him lunch, but only one person can meet that physical need of love that he has, and you always need to be available when he calls. - Michelle Duggar on saying yes (yes, and more yes) to sex
