Duggars pregnant with 20th child, Michelle Duggar and family have surprised their fans and media by announcing that she is expecting her 20th child. Yes, not second, not third, we’re talking about a 20th child here. Apparently, 19 wasn’t a good enough number for them, so they tried for a 20th child and voila, they have good news coming their way.
Michelle Duggar and her husband, Jim Bob, made the surprising announcement on Tuesday. The mother unveiled this exciting news on “The Today Show” in an exclusive interview. She said, “We are so excited.” She was 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.”
Was this a conscious effort or it just happened? This is something the couple hasn’t talked about yet, but their fans must be anxious to know about this as well.
As far as the pregnancy is concerned, Michelle Duggar has passed her first trimester and thankfully she hasn’t had any medical problems or complications so far. According to Michelle, she is in good shape. Her comments about her health were quite encouraging to hear. “I’m really in better shape than I’ve been in 20 years,” she said.
When the kids found out about a 20th baby coming to their family, they couldn’t digest this news initially. Their dad broke this news for them that they would have a new brother or sister, Michelle said. They lined the family up on the staircase for a photo, she recalled, and Jim Bob said, “Smile.”
Over all, this is great news for the parents; they seem to be very excited about it and are praying that their coming baby doesn’t develop any medical complications based on the past experience. Michelle’s last child developed some gall bladder problems, which are better now.
Those of you who weren’t aware of this happy family must be surprised to find out that the Duggars’ 19 children range in age from 23 years to 23 months. Their names are Joshua, Jana, John-David, Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joseph, Josiah, Joy-Anna, Jedidiah, Jeremiah, Jason, James, Justin, Jackson, Johannah, Jennifer, Jordyn-Grace, and Josie.
The Duggar family – parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and 19 children (nine girls, ten boys) – also stars in a reality TV show called “19 Kids and Counting” (formerly “17 Kids and Counting” and “18 Kids and Counting”).
