Michelle Duggar and her husband Jim Bob are expecting their 20th child, the couple revealed exclusively to TODAY. “We are so excited,” Michelle Duggar told TODAY Moms before the broadcast. Now three and a half months pregnant, the mom of 19 says she was actually 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.”

The super-sized family stars in its own reality TV show, “19 Kids and Counting,” on TLC (guess they will have to update the title!). Michelle told TODAY Moms that she’s over her first-trimester morning sickness, has been indulging her cravings for dill pickles, and is feeling great. She said her doctors have given her the green light for this pregnancy, and so far she hasn’t had any health worries. For the past year, she said, she’s been working out five or six days a week: “I’m really in better shape than I’ve been in 20 years.”

The Duggars’ 19 children, who range in age from 23 years to 23 months, are: Joshua, Jana, John-David, Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joseph, Josiah, Joy-Anna, Jedidiah, Jeremiah, Jason, James, Justin, Jackson, Johannah, Jennifer, Jordyn-Grace, Josie. The kids thought family patriarch Jim Bob was joking when he broke the news 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 — Mom’s going to have another baby!”

“Their mouths dropped,” Michelle said, laughing at the memory. “They all looked at me to see if he was joking.”

Can you imagine what life would be like with all those kids?!?!?!?!? Bless them. SMH.

    Okay I know babies are a blessing but allow some of the rest of the population to go forth and bear fruit. 20th child come on this is Kray right here, when will she say know?

  • Jomiya

    I ment ‘when will she say No’ !!!

  • Joy

    At least they are taking care of them! With 19 kids could you imagine how much she would get in welfare benefits!

  • Layla

    This makes no sense. How much time and attention can a parent give 20 children! This woman is always pregnant, which means her other children have to parent the younger ones. That is not fair to any of them! She and the baby nearly died the last time, why risk it again? I guess they won’t be satisfied until she dies in childbirth. SMH
