Back of Biggest Headlines of 2009: Michelle Duggar Pregnant With 19th Baby! And baby makes 21! In 2008, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, parents to many on TLC's Seventeen Kids and Counting, gave birth to their 18th child. In September of 2009, the couple announced that they will add to their big brood with a 19th baby next year! The news was hardly a shock considering I had the chance to talk to the family while they were promoting their book, The Duggars: 20 and Counting! and learned how important having a big crowd is to them, but you don't meet a family of 21 every day of the week!
