Michelle Duggar: “We’re Trying For a Twentieth Child”

By: Celebrity Baby Scoop



Mother-of-19 Michelle Duggar and husband Jim Bob Duggar are celebrating their 29th wedding anniversary on the Tuesday (October 8) episode of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting.

Michelle, 47, opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about the special episode where her husband “overdid it” and “really surprised” her. She goes on to talk about the joys of motherhood (and grand-motherhood), her top tips for a successful marriage, her thoughts on “me” time, her “hope” to become pregnant with a twentieth child, and the “misconception about overpopulation.”


CBS: Tell us about the upcoming episode of 19 Kids and Counting: Anniversaries to Remember. What can fans expect to see?

MD: “Oh boy! It is really going to be fun, because we go back to the beginning and reminisce over how Jim Bob and I met. We go on a journey from the beginning of our relationship until now. It’s a lot of fun seeing the old pictures, because there’s a lot of great stuff.

My favorite part about filming the episode was how much Jim Bob surprised me and how he was able to keep the anniversary surprises secret. It was amazing for me. He did such a neat job in bringing together the past, the present, and then the future of our relationship. I’m always so surprised by Jim Bob’s creativity when it comes to birthdays and anniversaries. He is such a creative person! He definitely overdid it this time and really surprised me.”


CBS: Are you hoping to become pregnant with a 20th child? Or maybe you have a special announcement to share with us?

MD: “I would hope, but we are not expecting right now. 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!”
