Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar: Pregnant With Baby #20!

by at . Comments

Make that 20 Kids and Counting. Michelle Duggar's fight for survival during her last pregnancy apparently wasn't about to stop her from getting back on the horse.

She and her husband, Jim Bob Duggar, are expecting their 20th child this spring.

"We are so excited," the 45-year-old mom and star of TLC's soon-to-be renamed 19 Kids and Counting said. "I feel good. I am past the sickness stage now."

Michelle added that there's "no greater love" than that of her children and that she has thought about her health status and is ready to have the new baby.

Jim Bob was "thankful" that yet another addition to the family is on the way. "I feel like the richest man in the world," he said to his brood.

The couple, who live in Tontitown, Ark., are already parents to Joshua, 23, twins Jana and John-David, 21; Jill, 20; Jessa, 19; Jinger, 17; Joseph, 16; Josiah, 15; Joy-Anna, 14; twins Jedidiah and Jeremiah, 12; Jason, 11; James, 10; Justin, 8; Jackson, 7; Johanna, 6; Jennifer, 4; and Jordyn, 3; and Josie, who turns 2 next month.

You don't see this every day: Baby #20 will be younger than his/her niece and nephew. Josh and Anna Duggar have two kids of their own.

The Duggars having 20 kids: Is that too many?


Good luck with your pregnancy. I grew up around very big families. Like one of my good friends was the 12 out of 17... The normal lds families had 10+ kids.. Im glad to see good family values and morals still with in this world... N no im not talking about polygamist families. They gave Mormons a bad name


Money isn't the only way others have to support people's irresponsible procreation. We're rapidly getting to the point where the planet can't sustain all of us. If you don't understand how population growth affects us ALL, you're woefully ignorant. I'm not talking about 20 generations from now - we're looking at serious food shortages in a generaion or two. Did you know that in the US we eat over 300 million cows a year and several billlion other animals? It's TRUE. Educate yourselves, because one thing is for sure - the Duggars aren't. Speaking of which, the last thing we need is more people who are ignorant of everything but their parent's own beliefs - those kids may be well mannered, but they'r brainwashed to the umpth degree.


I hope the best for you but remeber your 19 child? you are her almost died.Why would you want to have another and your oldr kids raise the smaller children. what the *@@@@**@###%%@#@**@? Have a good day


What are you going to name her/him?


Hello Michelle,
My mom wanted another kid and the dr sayed u better have one now(she was 35) sure I don't have any issues but my mom wasn't 45 when she had me!!! And ur last baby Girl ALMOST die and u too it's time to stop ur awayyyyyyyy to old to have kids!! And sure u think it's god will u have soo many but b.c when having sex yeah ur get prego stupid it takes an egg and sperm!! Duhhhh


god bless u and your family happy for u all , hope everything goes well with your new baby boy or girl,


Bitch, close your legs.


As long as I'm not having to support them, it's none of my business - or anyone else's.


Congratulations to the Duggars!!! I love their show. All of the children in their family are blessings and they all seem very happy, healthy, and well rounded. They take their family and religious values very seriously and should be commended. All of the children are smart and very polite. We should all be as lucky as they are. The Duggars are very blessed.


I must admit that she needs her head examined. First, after Josie's issue, what happens when baby #20 could have serious health issues or kill the mother, then what?? Oh, that's right, the older daughters are stuck with raising siblings. "Pul-eeze", Michelle doesn't do all the "mom" duties, she dumps them on the kids. I prayed that when Josie came along and she was born early the docs would secretly tie this woman's tubes!!! I still would like to know how they make money to support this brood (and ALSO, NOT get tax credits for this many kids.....) There's another issue....rip off the gov't.
