Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar haven't had enough yet – they are currently trying for a 20th child. The 19 Kids and Counting reality TV show stars have three grandchildren, but that doesn't stop them from wanting to be pregnant again themselves.
When asked about another pregnancy, 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. 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!"
When their son Josh and Wife Anna announced the pregnancy of their third child on the TODAY show in April, Michelle, 46, and Jim Bob, 48, also announced that they were thinking about adoption. "We're praying about if the Lord would want us to adopt," Michelle said. Her husband added, "We have set up our home to be designed for taking care of children. We love children, and we really believe every child is a special gift from God."
Michelle also spoke about her health after having going through so many pregnancies. "I think that exercising and eating right definitely makes a difference. My health is good and I am grateful for that. I think it could be different; every person struggles with different things, but I am so grateful that my health is good and I am able to enjoy running and chasing my little ones around at this point in my life."
Back in December of 2011, Michelle suffered from a miscarriage with her would-be 20th child.
The couple's 19 children all have names beginning with the letter “J” - Joshua, Jana, John-David, Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joseph, Josiah, Joy-Anna, Jedidiah, Jeremiah, Jason, James, Justin, Jackson, Johannah, Jennifer, Jordyn-Grace and Josie. What name would they choose for number 20? (I'm partial to Jessica!)
