The biggest family in America is looking to expand, and we’re not talking about grandchildren.
Michelle Duggar, mom to 19 Kids and Counting, recently told Celebrity Baby Scoop that she and husband Jim Bob are praying for an even 20. Yep, you read that right.
The famous reality TV couple, who are celebrated their 29th wedding anniversary today, already have 19 kids, 10 boys and nine girls, including two sets of fraternal boy twins, whose names all whimsically begin with the letter “J”. Michelle, age 47, said that they’d really like to adopt another child.
When asked if she was pregnant with her 20th child, Michelle replied, “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. If not, we are so thankful and grateful for the ones that God has given us so far. We are also definitely enjoying our grandbabies! They are so precious!”
Between the kids and the grandkids, one would think this family was all full up, but the Duggars say that they’ve been praying for a new addition for quite some time. On her philosophy of big families, Michelle says, “When you have more people in the family, there is that many more people to spread love all around!“
When asked if it was a good idea to add to the population of the world, Michelle expanded on her views, saying, ”I think that there is this ideology that goes behind overpopulation that I don’t really agree with. It’s a different perspective and that’s where people have their different ideas, and that’s okay. That’s what makes the world go around; there are many different ideas and different perspectives about certain topics.”
