IF that is what they want...good for them... However they will have a child younger then their first grand kid...

I do often get this creepy vibe about the husband, 'Jim Bob'...That he is this sex starved addict that just keeps fertilizing his poor wife. Much to her dismay. Just a vibe....nothing more.
She has been pregnant for a good 20 years now. She can't possibly like reeking havoc on her body,,,19 times over now. Poor lady...

They're going to run out of "J" names soon!

As for Jim Bob being a sex addict, it takes 2 to tango - surely she c/h said No at some point. I do agree though, all those pregnancies w/h to take a huge toll on her body.

She's 42. Theoretically, she can go on for 13-15+ years still or more. I am kind of interested as to how long they will be having kids. I think they are getting at a Guinness record, in the amount of kids, and the length of pregnancy years.

In short, 10 years from now we'll still hear these news!

Honestly, at this point what's the difference? 18?19? what's one more! I do wonder about the risks getting higher as Michelle gets older. One of these days they'll have a baby with Down's or something.

I don't know. I had a coworker who was one of 20 or 21 kids. They just weren't on TV. I do think they'll keep at it for years to come. I bet at least one or 2 more maybe 6 or 8!

Good for them! Based on what I've seen of thier children they tend to be pretty polite little kids. The grown ones are so mature and seem like they will contribute to the world wonderfully.
We need more people producing such capable children if you ask me...

Right, she won't have an absolute record, so they just may be aiming at keeping the public interest up (the source of income). They broke into everyone's minds, they may as well try to stay.

If Michelle stops bearing children right now, I think the interest in their family would die. Because, as opposite to J+K, their main attraction is "keeping having babies" versus "the family life" in J+K.
