20 Kids And Counting? Jim Bob And Michelle Duggar Continue To Try For Another Baby

October 09, 2013 02:00 PM by Stephanie Gustafson

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!

    These people are insane and addicted to being pregnant. God has been trying to tell them that enough is enough.Miscarriages and illnesses are a sign. Michelle is in danger of dying herself.

    The real tragedy is how having an unreasonable amount of children affects the ones they already have. It’s hard to divvy up a days worth of necessary attention for 3 kids, let alone 20. If you subtract out the time needed to sleep, eat, prepare meals, and do other chores you aren’t even leaving each child 30 minutes with mom & dad a day. Who is raising these kids? Who helps them with their homework? Who pays for it all? (Better not be my tax dollars). Having 20 children should be a punishable offense and considered child abuse. Shame on them.

    The Duggers are opposed to preventing another pregnancy and have said they would like another child. They believe God is in control of what happens and they are trusting Him. I don’t think this is insane. Years ago these large families were everywhere. Because there were fewer birth control options. Just because we have options now does not mean a couple should not leave their birth control in the hands of God. It is their choice and they should have the freedom to choose. Leave them alone. If you ever watch their show for something other than condemnation. You will find a grounded family with solid values. They are different but they are producing young adults who can contribute to society rather than take.

    I agree. I look up to this family. Bless the Duggar Family. I’m very young but I understand where the Duggars are coming from.

    JimBob needs to learn self control. He was insistent on having sex with Michelle just days after delivery. She claims that birth control killed their first baby but, they were not using birth control when they had Jubilee (stillborn). Neither of the parents care for the kids. Michelle admits in her blog and on the show that her older kids are responsible for the little kids. JimBob didnt even know how to feed Josie when she came home and admitted he needed Michelle for instructions. Just what would JimBob do if Michelle died? They never consider these things. They assume their older ones will always care for the younger ones but, eventually they will have their own kids and will not have time for raising Michelle’s kids.
