Duggars Welcome Baby 19

TLC will have to rename its largest multiple-children show for the third time since its premiere now that Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar of 18 Kids and Counting had their 19th baby Thursday night. Newborn Josie Brooklyn Duggar was born via emergency C-section prematurely—she was reportedly due on March 18—and, according to TMZ, weighed in at 1 lb., 6 ounces. Last weekend, Michelle was airlifted to a Little Rock, Arkansas, hospital after suffering from gallstones. TMZ reports that a rep for the Duggar family says the mom of 19 is resting and that the newborn is “stable,” but in neonatal intensive care. The Duggars' most recent addition to their family before Josie was daughter Jordyn-Grace, who was born in December 2008. They also welcomed a granddaughter in October, when son Josh’s wife had their baby Mackynzie.
