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.


Congrats to you. I am so happy to see people trying to follow the will of God then the will of themselves. Everyone is so upset thinking they are taking assistance from the Government. So what if they did (They say they aren't). they are married and having children. Not pretending to be married and having babies. Not a person who doesn't know who the father is. Not someone who has a baby to stay on the system for support. We don't seem to complain about that? Who are we to decide how large any family should be and what is enough for a family. The one thing I observe when I see the show. This family is genuine. There is lots of Love for each other. Maybe if more of us joined in their life style maybe this would be a better world.


Hot dog down a hallway- that's for sure-absolutely disgusting !!


That's nasty sarah. Definitely shows your maturity level. Not cool.
Im actually happy for this family. at least these kids have a loving mother and father who are together, unlike a lot of broken families I see everyday in this country.


It is a wonderful thing to have someone to love and if that is express through Kids go ahead keep on loving because love is what heals the world and the world really need lots of love right now. So who are hating on this family get some love


Simply put, if you think life is good and children are a blessing, you celebrate this news. If you think life sucks and children are a curse, this story will infuriate you. I hope God will continue to bless the Duggars.


I will give them credit, even though I wouldn't want that many children, they are a family. Very well organized, everyone helps, and they financially take care of themselves. Not like OCTOMOM. Three kids on disability, not having a job and relying on tax payers to take care of them. Do you think OCTOMOM paid the hospital bill for hers? Now do you think the Duggar's paid for theirs or had health insurance that they pay for, pay their medical? I would say for Mrs. Duggar to quit soon so she will be in good health to watch her last child graduate!


Except that the Taliban is a bunch of cold-blooded murdering thugs, right?


Well, I heard they don't allow their girls to wear pants, cut their hair short or attend college. If this is true, they're no better than any Taliban.


Only an idiot would call a child the name used in this headline.


God Bless them. This nation needs more strong intact families like the Duggars. Their children are so lucky.
I came from a family of nine children, and they all hate eachother and it is as if I grew up by myself. My dad was an alcoholic, my mom was a nasty not to be trusted person. These people appear to truly love eachother and more power to them.
