As if being the parents of 19 children isn’t difficult enough, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar recently announced that they are expecting their 20th child in April, according to People.com.
In case you aren’t familiar with the Duggar clan, it is made up of 19 children – with names all beginning with the letter “J” – who star in TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting.
With the show in its fifth season, Michelle and Jim Bob have recently been the focus of several critics due to the size of their family.
“We homeschool, so we are around our children day in and day out,” Jim Bob, 46, told People.com. “Because I am in real estate, I am home and can be with the children a lot. When we go to the store or run errands, we take the kids one on one and we get to spend more time individually than a lot of parents do.”
However, Michelle said she and her husband will continue to make their own decisions about their lives and the lives of their children.
“We really believe we are following our faith and there are sometimes going to be people who don’t agree and we aren’t going to worry about the negative things stated,” Michelle said during the interview.
The couple have also recently published a new book about their lives, “A Love that Multiplies.”
