Anna isn't the only Duggar expecting! This morning on the Today show, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, who will become grandparents next month, announced that they too will add to their big brood with a 19th baby next year. The couple known for their reality show said they are currently close to the three-month mark. Congratulations to the growing family!

My guess is that she probably mixed the Bapists with the Catholic Church. The Church doesn't support birth control, generally. (in reference to littlemizfit's comment about Justanerd)

Justanerd, where did you get the idea that Baptists don't believe in birth control? lol You assume...

19 is A LOT, but it's their choice. I wonder if someone getting 19 abortions done instead would inspire as much criticism. Being as the Duggar's are a Baptist family,I'm going to assume that they do not believe in using any kind of birth control, so a pregnancy is the Lord's decision- not theirs. That also means they wouldn't do artificial fertilization, or surrogacy.

If they lost their show,I wonder if they'd keep on having more children? Sometimes I think they're only having them to keep the show alive.But really enough is enough.It's time to stop multiplying and enjoy the one's you already have instead of letting the older children rear the little ones.Sit back and enjoy what God has blessed you with. I pray Josh and Anna don't follow in his parents footsteps and have this many.

I agree with everyone who thinks this is so wrong and irresponsible.

I like Cassie's comment. If they can afford them, who cares? More power to them! At least they aren't on government assistance doing it. Personally, I would NEVER have that many...I used to say 5 back when I was still enthusiastic. Now? Not sure! MAYBE one... :)

this is so rediculous, it actually bothers me a lot. yes, they are raised in a loving home but this is just stupid now. if they want 50 kids, how about they stop having kids and adopt. there are so many kids in this world that need loving homes. i can't even watch their show or anything b/c it's not cute to me, it's stupid.

LOL @ post #3. I agree. :) Well, I'm glad I'm child-free by choice, as Michelle Duggar is having my share of children (as well as other women's share). :)

All this hate sounds like jealousy from people who wish they had their own reality show and/or working marriages and good children.

This is ridiculous. At some point having this many kids is selfish. As others have said, she cannot possibly give all her kids the attention they deserve. I feel like the older kids are doing more of the job of raising the younger kids that the parents are. This might sound horrible, but now I'm just waiting for one of the kids to lose it and rebel. I think its bound to happen and will be hilarious.
