Default Duggar Family Welcomes 18th Child

Link

ROGERS, Ark. An Arkansas woman has given birth to her 18th child.

Michelle Duggar delivered the baby girl by Caesarean section Thursday at Mercy Medical Center in Rogers. The baby, named Jordyn-Grace Makiya Duggar, weighed 7 pounds, 3 ounces and was 20 inches long.

"The ultimate Christmas gift from God," said Jim Bob Duggar, the father of the 18 children. "She's just absolutely beautiful, like her mom and her sisters."

The Duggars now have 10 sons and eight daughters.

Jim Bob Duggar said Michelle started having contractions Wednesday night. She needed the C-section, her third, because the baby was transverse. Jim Bob said both baby and mother were doing well Thursday night.

"We both would love to have more," he said.

The cable network TLC broadcasts a weekly show about the Duggars, called Seventeen and Counting. Chris Finnegan of TLC which handles public relations for the Duggar family said the show's name would be updated to account for the latest addition to the family. He said TLC also will air a show Monday on the baby's delivery. The Duggars have also had a book published recently.

Jim Bob Duggar is 43, a year older than his wife. Their oldest child, Joshua, is 20.

The other Duggar children, in between Joshua and Jordyn-Grace, are Jana, 18; John-David, 18; Jill, 17; Jessa, 16; Jinger, 14; Joseph, 13; Josiah, 12; Joy-Anna, 11; Jeremiah, 9; Jedidiah, 9; Jason, 8; James, 7; Justin, 6; Jackson, 4; Johannah, 3; and Jennifer, 1.

"Our whole family is excited about Jordyn's addition to our family," Jim Bob Duggar said. "She's just perfect in every way."

It's amazing that this family can care for so many children when so many people out there can't handle one or two kids. Too bad they couldn't have adopted Caylee Anthony.

It's wonderful that these kids are well taken care of and everything, but personally, I just don't think it's right, I mean women weren't meant to have litters. I'll probably get a lot of flack for this, but it's just the way I feel.

I agree with you. I don't think it is right either.

A lot of people don't agree with their lifestyle (myself included). It's easy to have 18 kids when the mom isn't really in charge of them; after 6-8 months the baby is passed to one of the older kids who must feed the baby, plus help them with their schooling and other activities.


I do like the new baby's name though (Jordyn). It's a cute name IMO.

Could you clarify what you mean by saying that women weren't meant to have that many kids? Do you mean that the way women are built makes it dangerous or unhealthy to have that many children or something? I'm just not sure what you mean when you say "weren't meant."

I don't know about dangerous, I personally just don't agree with it, but to each his own.

3 c-sections means she shouldn't be having anymore that way. I thought the limit was 3. And I mean, if you have more babies, you can't guarantee it will be able to be delivered naturally.

That's just odd and somehow wrong to me.

The mere thought of bearing and raising just one kid (much less EIGHTEEN) is enough to give me nightmares!! As Lu said, to each his own.
