Michelle Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting says she would be grateful if the Lord blessed them with another child

Michelle Duggar of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting recentlychatted with Celebrity Baby Scoop about the joys of motherhood, her successful 29 year marriage to husband Jim Bob and her hopes for a 20th child. As for her thoughts on a 20th child, Michelle says, “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.” So how does Michelle feel after giving birth to 19 children, “I feel great. I think that exercising and eating right definitely makes a difference. My health is good and I am grateful for that.”

How does a mom of so many little ones get some time to herself? Michelle says, “I love when all of my little ones are in bed and it’s quiet. I love having quiet time in the evening, because I am more of a night owl than a morning bird. I enjoy reading books and my Bible.” Michelle credits communication and praying together as the key to a happy marriage, “Communication is vital and it’s important to take time every day to talk. Jim Bob plans a date for us once a week. Our dates are a really special time for us to communicate more with each other.” When Michelle is asked what the biggest misconception is about her, she shares, “I don’t know! People were saying, ‘Oh, that’s way too many kids and I can’t imagine that many children in one family!’ However, my daughter, Jill, said to us, ‘Mom, Dad, I don’t understand why people would say that. Love really, truly multiplies…it doesn’t divide.”
