The star of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” Michelle Duggar, revealed in a recent interview she wants to have another baby, increasing her brood to 20, adding that the overpopulation problem is "overrated," according to an Oct. 10, 2013 ABC News report.
Michelle, 47, told Celebrity Baby Scoop that she and husband Jim Bob, 48, are “trying at this point and we shall see if that is a possibility…”
The couple are parents to Josie, 3, Jordyn, 4, Jennifer, 6, Johanna, 7, Jackson, 9, Justin, 11, james, 12, Jason, 13, twins Jedidiah and Jermiah, 14, Joy-Anna, 15, Josiah, 17, Joseph, 18, Jinger, 19, Jessa, 20, Jill, 22, twins Jana and John-David, 23, and Joshua, 25, according to ABC.
In addition, Michelle and Jim Bob are the grandparents of three.
She told Celebrity Baby Scoop that many have criticized their family, arguing they are contributing to the overpopulation crisis, and addressed the issue by saying, “…We have studied it and I believe that there is a misconception about overpopulation. I think the whole mindset of overpopulation is really overrated…”
Michelle also stated that if the twentieth child is not meant to be, that’s ok too, noting, “…We are so thankful and grateful for the ones that God has given us so far.”
