The Duggars Expecting Baby #20 (Only 20? Psshhh.)


The Duggars Expecting Baby #20 (Only 20? Psshhh.)

TLC reality stars Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar don’t have nearly enough kids, so thank goodness they have announced they are expecting their 20th child!

Due next April, Michelle, 45, calls her latest pregnancy a blessing. “Our whole family is so excited that God has blessed us with another child,” the star of TLC’s 19 Kids & Counting (which wraps its fifth season Tuesday) wrote. “Each one of our children are thankful to be here!”

The Duggars are to “J” what the Kardashians are to “K,” having named their kids Joshua, 23 (who is married with two kids of his own), Jana and John-David, 21; Jill, 20; Jessa, 19; Jinger, 17; Joseph, 16; Josiah, 15; Joy-Anna, 14; twins Jedidiah and Jeremiah, 12; Jason, 11; James, 10; Justin, 8; Jackson, 7; Johanna, 6; Jennifer, 4; and Jordyn, 3, and Josie, 11 months.

Whipping out a bible verse for their blog entry, Michelle and Jim Bob, 46, say they couldn’t be more thrilled with their ever-expanding (and expanding… and expanding…) brood.

“We do not take for granted the wonderful blessings of life that God has bestowed upon us! Many years ago, Jim Bob and I gave this area of our lives to God, allowing Him to grant life as He saw fit,” Michelle wrote.

The family awaits the arrival of this 20th child with great anticipation.  Because now, if all the kids stand on each other’s shoulders, they can almost reach the top of Michelle’s bangs!  Exciting.

Congrats on your truly impressive fertility, Jim Bob and Michelle.
