Guess they’re going to have to change the name of their reality show again.
20 Kids And Counting.
Mother of 19, Michelle Duggar, announced on the TODAY show that she is expecting her twentieth child.
As Rebecca Dube reports, Michelle Duggar and her husband Jim Bob revealed the big news this morning.
“We are so excited,” Michelle Duggar told TODAY moments before the broadcast. Now three and a half months pregnant, the mom of 19 says she was actually surprised to discover that she’s expecting again at 45. “I was not thinking that God would give us another one, and we are just so grateful.”
Michelle, who says “there’s always room for one more” is due in April. When Ann Curry asked if this would be the Duggars last child Michelle responded with “We’ll see…however many the lord sees fit to give us.”
The super-sized family stars in its own reality TV show, “19 Kids and Counting,” on TLC. The couple are also grandparents to son Josh and his wife Anna’s two children.
You might remember, their last baby, Josie, was born prematurely after Michelle was diagnosed with preeclampsia. Josie Brooklyn was a mere 1 lb. 6 oz. when she was born at 25 weeks. Josie is healthy and doing well. Here’s hoping this pregnancy goes a lot better for Michelle Duggar. You can catch the season finale of “19 Kids and Counting” tonight on TLC
