Good googly goo!!!!!! You’ve heard of the Duggars. You know the family from Arkansas who have 18 children and are featured in the TLC series 18 Kids and Counting.
Well they’ve just announced that mom Michelle Duggar is expecting her 19th child. Yes I said 19th child. I guess TLC will have to change the name of the show to 19 Kids and Counting.

Make way for more Duggars!
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of Tonitown, Ark., who have 18 children and one grandchild on the way, are expecting a new addition to their household – baby No. 19 will arrive in the spring.
“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.”
Oldest son Joshua, 21 and his wife Anna, 21, are expecting daughter Mackynzie Renée next month, so she will be older than her new aunt or uncle.
“I think it is going to be awesome, it is going to be great,” says Josh about the news that his parents are expecting. “We have been looking forward to the arrival of my little girl and to now get to celebrate for my parents, it’s a wonderful thing.”
I know that the Duggars have a right to have as many children as they want, they’re not living on the taxpayer’s expense and they live debt free in a house they built but isn’t 19 children a bit much? I can’t imagine what Michelle Duggar’s body is going through having all those children. Yes, having a family this large was the thing to do back in the old days but this is the 21st century. Who needs to have 19 kids in these modern times? I know I would go crazy living in a house with that many kids. Peace and quiet wouldn’t exist anymore.
Anyway I wish them the best of luck.
