This family reproduces so quick that rabbits must be jealous! Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, who are already parents to 18 children ranging from age 21 down to 8 months and with one grandchild on the way, have announced that they are expecting their 19th baby this spring! Nope, thats not a typo my friends! Maybe Jim Bob should consider changing his name to Mr. Jack Rabbit…?
“We are so thrilled,” says Michelle, 42. “We just couldn’t believe it is happening.” Jim Bob, 44, agrees: “This never gets old. We are so grateful for each child. We are looking forward to our first grand baby and our 19th child.”
The Duggar’s oldest son Joshua and his wife Anna are expecting their first baby, a daughter they play to name Mackynzie Renee, next month. The Duggars live debt-free in a house they built themselves with their kids, whose names all begin with the letter J: Joshua, 21; twins Jana and John-David, 19; Jill, 18; Jessa, 16; Jinger, 15; Joseph, 14; Josiah, 13; Joy-Anna, 11; twins Jedidiah and Jeremiah, 10; Jason, 9; James, 8; Justin, 6; Jackson, 5; Johanna, 3; Jennifer, 2, and Jordyn-Grace, 8 months. While it is too early to know whether they are having another boy or girl, they already have a list of names starting with the letter J to choose from. The couple have been happily (obviously!) married now for just over 25 years with their lives being documented on their TLC show “18 Kids And Counting.”
I just can’t seem to wrap my head around having that many kids. I have two myself and I’m ready to start my own personal happy hour by noon! But then again I guess after you have a dozen or so, one more added to the mix won’t be that big of a deal. I bet her uterus is crying right about now, screaming “enough!”
