Michelle Duggar Pregnant with 20th Baby, and I Say Congrats!

The Duggar family announced they are expecting baby number 20!

The Duggar family announced on the Today Show this morning that Michelle is pregnant with baby number 20.

The big announcement comes just in time for the season finale of 19 Kids and Counting tonight on TLC, and the whole family appeared on the Today Show stage — including little Mackenzie and Michael, the Duggar’s two grandchildren. The sight of all of them together honestly warmed my heart. I think Michelle looks amazing. I have no idea the toll that having twenty children can have on a woman’s body, but she looks fantastic for age 45. Maybe it’s a fountain of youth?  

Personally, I cringe when people comment about family size. Someone will always have an opinion that your one kid is not enough and my four kids are too many. Really, whose business is it anyway? I say congrats to the Duggars! Of course, they chose to put themselves under public scrutiny when they agreed to the reality television series about their family, but I don’t really get the haters. The Duggars appear to be a loving, stable, and responsible family.

While I probably won’t make good on my own saying of “what’s one more?” in our family of six, Michelle states in the Today Show video that their family motto is “there’s always room for one more.”  I can understand what she is saying. And when asked if this is it (another question I find offensive), Michelle Duggar explains, “Well, I guess we’ll wait and see.”

All the Duggar children are known for having names that begin with the letter ‘J’: Joshua, Jana, John-David, Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joseph, Josiah, Joy-Anna, Jedidiah, Jeremiah, Jason, James, Justin, Jackson, Johannah, Jennifer, Jordyn-Grace,  and Josie.

Wonder what name they’ll come up with for this one? Any suggestions?
