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.

This woman never comes off of the natural euphoric high of being pregnant or just after, but when she does and she stops getting PG, watch out. Post partum depression, and a look at just how big her job really is will throw her into something else.
He needs to stop. If they can't figure out the rhythm method, then just stop.

Hey Lester, your "IF" facts are meaningless and a strawman argument considering the millions of babies aborted each year. So don't worry about the earth becoming overpopulated ok? And by the way, there is a God and I am sure He IS saddened by your comments as well as the pro-abortion supporters rejection of His gift of life. And IF you wish to deal with IFs, If my aunt had testicles she would have been my uncle...........

Go figure, a family with now 19 children and not leaching off the government. Definitely a lesson to be learned here but unfortunately that lesson is ridiculed as evidenced by the above comments of several leftist bigots .......I guess they're just pissed off that the family chose responsibility over abortion.

Homeschoolmom, I didn't say that it was said by God or that I believed in Adam or any of the Bible. But, it was said when they wrote the Bible, so to understand the phrase, we have to understand the conditions from the period when the Bible was written. I hope you improve your critical reading skills before the kids you are teaching are old enough to need to learn them. I stand by my statement.

Lester said "Go forth and multiply" was said in a world where there were few people, the life expectancy was much lower, and the life treatening dangers were much greater." Adam lived to be over 900 years old so I don't think your statement is correct.

There are 6.8 billion people in the world. That makes 3.4 billion women. If each woman had 20 children, then the population would be 68 billion in a short time. You have a hard time getting a parking spot, a job, a doctor, a place to live, or feeding the world's hungry now, imagine what the world would be like if in say 20 years, there were 10 times more people. "Go forth and multiply" was said in a world where there were few people, the life expectancy was much lower, and the life treatening dangers were much greater. If there is a God, he would probably look at what we are doing to his world now and be insulted.

I see some on here are concerned about overpopulation like I am. When I was young I wanted a large family, but not this large. As I got older, I began to think that I had some responsibility to not overpopulate the earth and cause more problems. To me this is the height of narcicissm and selfishness. Do they think they are going to be struck down by lightning if they use an old fashioned birth control method called "pulling out." Everytime I see them on TV the mother seems silly and goofy to me, the father is smiling like he thinks he's a hot shot, and the children all stand there like they are just so unbelievably happy. I'm not buying it. I love children and I have a happy life, but I would be so ashamed of overpopulating like this. Have they ever heard of adoping children who have no parents. These large (not this large of course) families seem to connect large families to religion. I think there is more to religion and doing good than being fruitful and multiplying.

You'd look "genuine" and have "love for each other" too, if you were in front on a TV camera for that purpose. As a 6th child out of 7 from a good and loving family, I don't believe the parents of large families have enough time to spend with each child individually. Probably why I had one child, who tells me continually, I should have had more.
