Seriously? Don't they think they have enough? The Duggar family of the hit TLC show 19 Kids and Counting say they want to have more children. Who has twenty or more kids these days?
According to a report from Hollywood Life, it's true. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar say they'd like to have more children.
"We would love more but, of course, I'm 45, so we don't know if that will ever happen again," Michelle Duggar says. "But we love more!"
The 19 Kids & Counting family nearly experience heartbreak when the 19th child, baby Josie Duggar was born many weeks premature. The little girl was a fighter and she clung to life, but has experienced a number of health issues ever since.
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, along with their family, are devout Christians who believe that God--not them--will decide how many children they are to have. One might translate the premature birth and baby Josie's health concerns as being God's confirmation that perhaps nineteen is enough. But that's not how the 19 Kids and Counting family does things. They will simply continue their attempts at procreation and leave the rest in God's hands.
A lot of good things can be said about the Duggar family, despite the constant criticism they get from the media and other sources. They support their large family--not relying on any kind of state or federal programs to help feed, clothe, house or educate their children.
Many people wonder how each child in the 19 Kids and Counting family gets the kind of love and attention each requires, but the kids all seem well adjusted, happy and healthy--so it's clear the Duggars are doing something right.
What do you think about the Duggar's admission that they'd like to have even more children? And do you think perhaps baby Josie's premature birth and serious health concerns could have been God's way of saying, "Enough!"?
