The Duggar family of TLC’s “18 Kids And Counting” welcomed their 19th child into the world a lot earlier than expected. Michelle Duggar gave birth to little Josie Brooklyn, who weighs just 1lb., 6oz. at 25 weeks, over three months ahead of schedule. The mother and daughter will have to remain in the hospital for the time being. Michelle was initially brought in to the hospital to have gallstones removed but was later brought into the operating room for an emergency c-section.
We certainly wish them well, but the fact that the baby came so early frightens us, if only because it means that Michelle and husband JimBob will be trying for baby #20 that much sooner. Josie will also be an aunt to her two-month old niece, Mackynzie, who was born to the eldest Duggar, Joshua. Rest assured this family will repopulate the earth is the rest of us get wiped out.
