19 Kids and Counting: Duggar Family Expecting 20th Child


duggar-familyJim Bob and Michelle Duggar announced Tuesday on the “Today” show that they are expecting their 20th child. The Duggars  told host Ann Curry they were excited about the new addition.

Serious questions naturally followed the Duggars’ happy tidings, like, is there enough room?

Mrs. Duggar was surrounded by all her 19 children, and a couple of grandchildren to boot.

The couple says they believe children are a gift from God.

  1. I do not know why anyone cares about the Duggars. I do know that there are KAH frum families of this size and they do not look for an ayin hara on the Today show.

  2. I happen to be very moved by this, no matter what you kvetchers say. It is amazing to see a family, even a secular one or non Jewish one, that appreciates the blessings of children.

    I am writing this as a person who never merited to have children.

  3. yes, they own real estate investments. I believe they do not take any government assistance. The kids are home-schooled, though.

  4. This is a religious family. The girls wear skirts only. They are well behaved and disciplined. They actually were in Israel a few weeks ago. I can’t wait to see it on their season premiere on Sunday.

  5. As a family project the Duggars built a 7000 sq. ft. home debt free! Both parents are licensed real estate agents. Mr. Duggar served in the Arkansas House of Representatives from 1999 to 2003 and was a candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2002.

    Their 19 kids include 2 sets of twins. They have 10 boys and 9 girls. The oldest son is married and has a child.

  6. This is a beautiful message the Duggar family posted not long ago:

    Message to the people of Israel:

    Hello everyone from the Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar Family of America’s TV show 19 Kids and Counting. We are looking forward to coming to Israel with our whole family, this has been a lifelong dream. We love the Jewish people. You have a heritage that goes back to Abraham being told by God that He would multiply his seed like the stars in the sky. Abraham and Sarah were supernaturally given a child in their old age. God has brought kings, world leaders, great scientists and millions of others into the world fulfilling His prophecy. You have been promised by God that through you all of the nations of the earth would be blessed.
    We are so excited about meeting many other families and getting to see first hand the places where the Creator of the universe has worked in such a mighty way. You each are special, fulfilling God’s plan where He stated He would bring back the descendants of Israel from the four corners of the earth and would give them their promised land. May God bless each one of you and your families as you seek to put Him first in your lives.

    Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar & Family
