The Duggars Rolling Out #19!!!

Make That 19 Kids and Counting: Duggars Expecting Another Child

Reality show mega-family The Duggars just announced on 'Today' that they are adding a new face to the family, their 19th child.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, who along with their brood star on TLC's '18 Kids and Counting,' appeared on the NBC morning show with their whole family to deliver the news. They told Meredith Vieira they're "so excited about our new arrival." Michelle, 42, is 3 months along in the pregnancy.

In a fun set of circumstances, the new baby will have a niece that is OLDER than him or her. Oldest son Joshua James and his wife Anna are expecting a daughter, to be named Mackynzie Renee, in October.

The eight girls and ten boys all have names starting with "J" >>

Joshua James, 21 -- expecting a daughter with his wife. Jane Marie, 19 John-David, 19 Jill Michelle, 18 Jessa Lauren, 16 Jinger Nicole, 15 Joseph Garrett, 14 Josiah Matthew, 13 Joy-Anna, 11 Jedidiah Robert, 10 Jeremiah Robert, 10 Jason Michael, 9 James Andrew, 8 Justin Samuel, 6 Jackson Levi, 5 Johanna Faith, 3 Jennifer Danielle, 2 Jordyn-Grace, 8 months

Not that anyone asked me ... It seems to me that they might consider adopting children instead of just making more at this point. They have some kids of their own to pass on their family name and genetic line. Here in Arkansas where I live, there are lots of kids in foster care and/or state custody that need either a temporary home or a permanent family. If the Duggars still have extra time, money, love, and guidance that they want to share with more little ones, why not share it with ones that are already in the world and in need of a family?
