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?


I am sorry, but why is it for us to judge? At least they support all of their children and do not live off our tax money and none of their kids are abused in anyway. So I say everyone that is not wishing them the best should leave them alone. Find a blog to comment on for all the families that abuse their kids or sell them off for drugs or something stupid. Michelle and Jim-Bon you seem like wonderful parents and it is such a joy for you to let us see into your lifes. I wish the best for you and all of your children and grand children. Thank you for raising productive and resposible children that I am sure will make a positive impact on this earth.


I love the Duggar family! There are 20 kids who are going to be positive role models in society. And if all those kids have 2 or 3 kids maybe They can do something positive for our country. I think it is great, and I know God is going to bless them.


I hate to break it to you guys, but I know several women who had healthy babies, with no medical assistance, until they were nearly 50! In fact, I've never seen a child of an "older" mother who wasn't very healthy, actually. It may not be as easy, but this Mrs. D could have another 2-3 children before it is no longer possible!!! At the rate she's going, she just might do that.
She is an extremely fertile woman--no doubt!! She may be setting some Guinness World Records soon!!! Congrats. She does seem like a loving mother, so that's all you can ask--?


This is like a circus now. She is in her 40's she almost died having Josie. It's not far that the older daughters have to take care of the little ones. I feel sorry for the Duggar family I think they all need help because they are NOT normal people. Michelle, because of your age you might die or the baby and thats not right. Your other children need you........


I have a couple of friends that act like mothers to their younger siblings but it doesn't stop them from having a life. You never know they might enjoy having little ones around. I have a baby brother that I have to look after all the time it is a fun job, they probally enjoy it too.


The only problem i have is the older girls are allready like mothers. They dont have their own lives. Every show the girls have the little ones not Machelle.


I'm sure they are wonderful parents, but if you wanted such a huge family, there are so many great kids just waiting for a loving home. Should have done the right thing and adopted 18 homeless kiddies. All of us only need 2 children to make a happy family. Yes, think of the planet, now up to 7 billion humans!


im sorry that is to many kids what were they thinking they had to much laid back time on their hands thats crazy she needs to get her tubes tied by the time this one is 18 she will be in her 60s come on whats up with that get ur tubes tied


God said stop. Be a good christian or what ever you worship and listen to him.


This family takes religeon wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy to seriously we have evolved since no birth controll.
Oh, and HEY! I said you could stop at child number 10... but noooo
