Michelle Duggar speaks about 19th child on Today Show September 1, 2009.
Michelle Duggar’s family is about to get bigger, she announced on The Today Show September 1, 2009. How on God’s green earth this is possible is yet to be explained by someone wearing a white coat. However, I can assure you that Duggar’s womb is harbouring its 19th child.
The family, whose names you cannot even make up (the dad is actually called Jim Bob), are shocking precisely no one. They say they believe in letting God decide when they will or won’t grow their family, and therefore they don’t use protection.
This may end up meaning that Duggar carrys her vagina around with her in a shopping trolley. But for now, she actually still seems capable of blessing the world with more children.
“I was in Weight Watchers with Jim Bob and I wasn’t losing any weight,” Michelle said. “I couldn’t figure it out. I was doing what I should. And the baby, who was nursing, was fussy. I kept thinking, ‘This isn’t right. She isn’t teething, she doesn’t have an ear infection. I’m not cheating on my diet, I should be losing weight.’ Then, I put two and two together and wondered if I could possibly be pregnant.” (via People)
The Duggars live debt-free in a house they built themselves with their kids, whose names all begin with J: after Josh there are twins Jana and John-David, 19; Jill, 18; Jessa, 16; Jinger, 15; Joseph, 14; Josiah, 13; Joy-Anna, 11; twins Jedidiah and Jeremiah, 10; Jason, 9; James, 8; Justin, 6; Jackson, 5; Johanna, 3; Jennifer, 2, and Jordyn-Grace, 8 months.
Their lives are featured on TLC’s 18 Kids and Counting, airing Tuesday nights.
The mother of 18 (eat your heart out OctoMom) is three months pregnant.
