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.

"...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.

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.

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

Dear Lord DON'T give this family another child! They can't even get the ones, they have, through college!

You know more about their finances than they do? What a horrible thing to pray when you don't know these people. Watch their show, read their books. They save every dime they make to provide the best education for their kids. They spend thousands of dollars a year on homeschool materials. Every single one of their children that wants to go to college will have the ability, I assure you.

You have no clue what you are writing about.. The husband is not Joe. You have probably not done very much research, basically youre a troll... The duggars can have as many children as they want. They are sheltered clothed and fed. They are smarter than your average public school children and gasp.... they have morals... I would rather have a million duggar family"s than the people who have only have one or two kids who are on the tax payers money.

You are pretty clueless. First of all there is no way that she has time to devote to all of those kids. Second of all, the older siblings are forced to parent their younger siblings because she can't tend to all of their needs, third of all their so called morals are pretty messed up- they are learning that becoming a breeding factory is what women should do, and the only reason why they aren't draining the tax payers wallets is because they have a reality show. I have two children and I get both food stamps and Medicaid, but because I don't have nineteen kids I am able to go to law school and I'm fourth in my class. I have been offered a job at a great firm, and now my tax dollars can help someone else!!! If I had nineteen kids that wouldn't be possible!!!!

some people can't even raise two kids. if they are doing a great job with her kids why are you putting them down. They support their own. I think it's their business.They were having all those kids before TV came along.
