Michelle Duggar: Still Hoping For Baby #20 Before Age 50!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Michelle Duggar may be in her late 40s and already raising an astonishing 19 children, but her long-rumored quest to make it an even 20 marches on!

The original rumor was that the stars of 19 Kids and Counting planned to adopt Duggar #20, but according to a new episode of her long-running TLC reality series, matriarch Michelle plans to get pregnant for the twentieth freaking time!

It's been nearly five years since Michelle gave birth to her youngest daughter Josie and she started crankin' 'em out with husband Jim Bob so long ago that the fourth Duggar child recently got engaged, and the eldest has three kids of his own.

Even so, Michelle insists that she and her husband would "welcome another baby if God offered to give us one," adding, "At the same time we're enjoying the ones that we do have and loving our grandbabies." 

Despite the fact that Michelle Duggar suffered a miscarriage in 2011 and her youngest daughter was born severely prematurely at 25 weeks, Duggar stated in a recent interview, "I would be so grateful if the Lord blessed us with another one."

For its part, TLC stated that it plans to continue rewarding people for breeding like bunnies on ecstasy by offering them long-running reality shows.

Spade the bitch


They're not living off the government, and they all seem very happy and well adjusted. I wish all kids grew up learning how to be so responsible! I would be concerned about another pregnancy at her age after how things went the last two times.


I was really enjoying this article until your last sentence which makes you a NASTY LITTLE SHIT.


In a culture that rabidly defends tolerance, the majority of the comments on this article, as well as ideas of the article itself, are blatantly intolerant. The Duggars aren't take a dime of tax payer dollars to raise their children--not even to educate them. Amazing the depth of emotions displayed against a family who simply lives life differently.

@ blasa

Thank you blasa for a comment that sounds intelligent and makes sense.


Your article is rude and ignorant. You don't even know your facts, such as Mr. Duggar's first name.


Michelle Duggar needs to sit down somewhere and start taking care ifthe CHAPS she has already...Instead of creating a buddy system or whatever it is they call it SHE needs to be taking care of those kids after all she's andthe freak of her husband had them....NOT those girls! She's already a grandmother for crying out loud...BOTH Jimbo & Michelle need to get fixed and then they can continue having all the freaky sex that they love having so much!!!! GEESHHHHHZZZZZ


Sounds like these people need to be on another reality show CALLED HOARDERS. You know, they prosecute people for hoarding animals. Why does everyone think this group is any different?


These people don't seem to put much thought into procreating. It sounds an awful lot like this is a vanity thing--she wants to have another child before she reaches age 50. Why? One for the record books--or just to keep the reality show on the air. Not good reasons for having a child.


"...matriarch Michelle plans to get pregnant for the twentieth freaking time!" Exepct this would be the twenty first freaking time. She was pregnant AFTER Josie with a child that they lost and named Jubilee.

@ Sara

Actually this would be the 22nd time she'd be pregnant. The 2nd time she got pregnant she miscarried because of the birth control they were using. They blamed themselves for killing the child God had blessed them with and asked God to forgive them and said they would never again use birth control and welcome as many blessings aka children as God would give them.

@ Krystle

Actually, both you AND Sara are wrong. Michelle has 19 kids, 4 of which are 2 sets of twins. Meaning, she's had 15 singleton pregnancies, yielding 15 kids and 2 twin pregnancies yielding 4 kids (let's not forget that twins are 2 babies, brought about through 1 pregnancy ;) ). So, that means that she's had 17 pregnancies, giving them 19 living kids. Add the 2 pregnancies where she lost babies and that makes a grand total of 19 pregnancies. So far. The next pregnancy would, indeed be her 20th pregnancy. Ta-da! Easy peasy, lemon squeezie! :D


Remember that you will grow old as soon as possible
