The Duggar family from, 17 Kids and Counting, which is featured on TLC and Discovery Health, welcomed baby number 18, Jordyn-Grace, this past week and are already thinking of adding more children to their family! The Duggars now have 10 sons and eight daughters.
Jim Bob Duggar said Michelle started having contractions Wednesday night and needed a C-section, her third, because the baby was lying sideways. He said both baby and mother were doing well Thursday night calling his newest addition, “The ultimate Christmas gift from God.” He added, “She’s just absolutely beautiful, like her mom and her sisters.”
Jim Bob Duggar said that the whole family is happy about the new arrival and happily commented, “Our whole family is excited about Jordyn’s addition to our family. She’s just perfect in every way.”
The famous family that recently got their own regular television show, 17 Kids and Counting, are made up of Joshua, 20, Jana, 18, John-David, 18, Jill, 17, Jessa, 16, Jinger, 14, Joseph, 13, Josiah, 12, Joy-Anna, 11, Jeremiah, 9, Jedidiah, 9, Jason, 8, James, 7, Justin, 6, Jackson, 4, Johannah, 3, and Jennifer, 1.
Will there be baby 19 in the near future? Jim Bob Duggar said, “We both would love to have more.”
TLC will change the name of 17 Kids and Counting to reflect the addition of the newest member.
