There’s little that will dissuade Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar from trying for yet another child…not even the 2011 miscarriage or the increasing likelihood of yet another tragedy. The 19 Kids and Counting stars are intent on rounding out the kid count to an even 20. When will enough be enough?
She loves the so-called Grand Duggars, but Michelle is not ready to be outdone by daughter-in-law Anna. At 47, she believes she’s still capable of having another healthy baby. It is this unwavering belief that has been responsible for Jim Bob and Michelle’s continued attempts at another pregnancy, even after the tragic miscarriage of 2011. As Michelle told Celebrity Baby Scoop, “I would be so grateful if the Lord blessed us with another one. We’re trying at this point and we shall see if that is a possibility.”
Jim Bob and Michelle very reluctantly acknowledge the possibility of Josie being their very last baby. They miss having diapered Duggars toddling around the house, but hope for extra Grand Duggars in the future. As Michelle explains, “We are also definitely enjoying our grandbabies. They are so precious”
Keep in mind that Jessa Duggar is currently in the midst of courtship, which means, if all goes well, she’ll be married off in the near future. Her babies would not carry the Duggar name, but Jim Bob and Michelle would still be overjoyed to welcome new grandchildren into the family.
What do you think of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggars’ continued attempts at a 20th child? Is it time for them to give up? Feel free to share your opinion in the comments section below!
