The Duggar Family rose to fame on the reality show 19 Kids and Counting.
That show was canceled years ago, of course, in the wake of the Josh Duggar molestation scandal — but the title did prove to be prophetic.
The family can sure say that again!
Over the past several weeks, one Duggar woman after another has come out and excitedly announced that she is pregnant.
Even by the standards of a group who believes females are only useful to their ability to raise a human being inside of their womb, this has been as astounding run of sperm successfully fertilizing eggs.
For the official record?
Jessa Duggar welcomed a girl named Ivy Jane this past spring.
Josh Duggar and his wife, Anna, are expecting their sixth child.
Joseph Duggar and wife Kendra have revealed a baby is on the way, while Lauren Swanson and Josiah Duggar have said the same.
Joy Duggar and Austin Forsyth have a little boy or a girl on board.
Heck, even semi-estranged cousin Amy Duggar is pregnant.
It’s a lot to process and those who have followed the journeys of these couples over the years must be thrilled for all of these famous men and women.
But there are also critics of the Duggars. There always have been.
At this point, after 2019, there will be 17 (!!!!!) Duggar grandchildren in the family — and fewer than half of the Duggars are married.
That’s mind-boggling on one hand, but it’s also infuriating on another, according to these aforementioned critics.
Last week, Kendra and Joe Duggar told Us Weekly that they’re expecting a girl, but not all the responses to this article were positive; some were downright mean and judgmental, in fact.
“Thank you next. Absolutely no one cares there’s way too many of them,” one user wrote, while another chimed in as follows:
“The world is already over populated, stop."
Elsewhere, people compared a Duggar pregnancy to a sunny day in Los Angeles (sort of funny), suggesting it isn’t news worthy, while others went after the entire family, saying they only marry to reproduce.
This is clearly true.
But to each his or her own we suppose, right?
We aren’t always huge fans of his women are treating with the strict confines of this family because it does often seem like they are just pieces of property, like members of an effed up cult.
But overpopulation concerns?!? We do not share those.
The Duggars themselves, for whatever it’s wort, do not seem phased by any of this criticism.
They are frickin psyched to have all these girls entering their family in the near future.
"Being parents ourselves is one of the most amazing experiences in life, however, we could have never anticipated the joy being grandparents brings us," Jim Bob and Michelle said in a recent statement, concluding:
"We cannot wait to meet these new little granddaughters!"
