The Duggar Family is pleased to announce they're expecting again...make it number 19 this time. The family that already has 18 children (and 1 grandchild) is preparing to welcome lucky Number 19.
In an interview today on TODAY with Meredith Vieira, Michelle Duggar says "We are thrilled to announce that we found out we’re expecting our nineteenth child.” This child will actually be born after their next grandchild who is due October 18th from eldest son Josh and his wife Anna.
The family lives in Arkansas and stars in their own TLC show. According to an article on MSNBC.com, Michelle has been pregnant for 147 months of her life (approximately 12 years). The couple figures they've changed 90,000 diapers and do about 200 loads of laundry a month.
Wow. That's really all I have to say. Just wow. I can't imagine being pregnant for that long. Or changing that many diapers for that matter! I think it's beautiful that they are raising such great kids but come on - at what point do you start to feel like a baby-machine? For me I think it would've been at kid number 5. It's called birth control folks. At the bare minimum, try the "rhythm method" - who knows, maybe that's what they've been trying all along! Well, best of luck to them. They're happy and healthy which is a lot more than some can say in this country.
