Digital News Report – TLC’s ’19 & Counting’ Duggar family are expecting another child. The Michelle is pregnant with baby number 20. Both Michelle, 45, and Jim Bob Duggar, 46, announced the addition on NBC’s ‘Today’ TV show.
Baby number 20 is expected to be born sometime this spring. Jim Bob told the brothers and sisters the good news during a photo session of a family portrait. Instead of saying ‘cheese’, he said that mom is expecting again, which made the kids think he was joking.
Michelle will be having her first planned Cesarean section because of complications with her previous pregnancy. Michelle said that she was surprised to find out she was pregnant again. Even though baby 19, who now is almost 2 years old, was a premature delivery and Michelle had gall-bladder problems and preeclampsia during the last pregnancy, she said that when she looks at Josie, it was worth all the challenges they faced.
The Duggar’s oldest child is 23 years old. Five of the children are 19 years and older, while the rest of the siblings are 17 years old and younger.
The Duggar family posted a letter announcing the good news as well as a video for the announcement on NBC’s ‘TODAY’ TV show on their website.
