The Duggars announced on the Today Show that they are expecting their 18th child.
Come on…18 children! What a slap in the face. How can someone be so fertile? I can not fathom it…Michelle Duggar, please send a little baby making juju my way!
The Duggars married in 1984, when Michelle was 17 and Jim Bob was 19. They held off on having kids for four years before Michelle ceased taking birth control pills to have their first child. After Joshua was born in 1988, Michelle returned to birth control but wound up getting pregnant anyway. Unfortunately, she suffered a miscarriage, which the couple attributed to use of the pill.
Michelle and Jim Bob decided to pray for as many children as God would give them. Within a year, Michelle was pregnant with the first of their two sets of twins. TODAY
Yes, she is completely blessed to have so many children, but I am a little bitter.
