The Word: Michelle Duggar is trying for a 20th baby
Duggars! Come on, Duggars. Leave some babies for the rest of us.
The Duggar family, stars of TLC’s reality show “19 Kids and Counting,” take that last part seriously: Mom Michelle Duggar says she and husband Jim Bob are trying for a 20th baby.
“I would hope, but we are not expecting right now. I would be so grateful if the Lord blessed us with another one. We’re trying at this point and we shall see if that is a possibility,” she told Celebrity Baby Scoop. “If not, we are so thankful and grateful for the ones that God has given us so far. We are also definitely enjoying our grandbabies! They are so precious!”
The Duggars suffered a miscarriage in 2011. Their 19th child, Josie, was born in 2009. Michelle Duggar is 47 years old. These numbers make my uterus try to hide behind my other organs, but the Duggars are fully committed to their “quiver-full” lifestyle: She’s also said they don’t believe in overpopulation.
“We have studied it and I believe that there is a misconception about overpopulation. I think that the whole mindset of overpopulation is really overrated. A few years back, we stated that the whole population of the world could be stood shoulder-to-shoulder in Jacksonville.”
Exactly. Why would the world want to go to Jacksonville?
