Michelle Duggar has been in the hospital recovering from a gallstone and was taken to the OR for an emergency c section on Thursday. She was not actually due to give birth until March. Although premature, the baby girl is reported in stable condition. Michelle Duggar is also reportedly doing fine.

TLC has previously said they will change the name of the Duggar family reality show from 18 Kids and Counting to 19 Kids and Counting to reflect the newest addition. The Duggars follow the conservative Christian Quiverfull movement, which focuses on the bible’s tenement to be “fruitful and multiply”. They do not practice any form of birth control.

Little Josie continues the Duggar tradition of naming all the children in the family with the letter J. Her siblings are named Jana, John-David, Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joseph, Josiah, Joy-Anna, Jedidiah, Jeremiah, Jason, James, Justin, Jackson, Johanna, Jennifer and Jordyn-Grace. The Duggars also recently welcomed their first grandchild into the family.

  1. Dear Duggar Family, Our prayers and good wishes go out to all of you. The Oliveira Family in Southern California.


  3. My Daughter was 3-months Premature…
    I was diagnosed with Toxemia but it was too late to stop anything…
    My Daughter (Amanda Alexandra Jacobs) just wanted to come out @ 2lbs 14oz
    And she did …
    But I was told no more Children (If so we both will Die)
    She is my only one (I am blessed)
    She is now going to be 21 in June
    What an Ordeal & a really scary one
    I only made it through God, Prayers, and Family. Friends & her Strength to keep fighting and wanting to be here.
    Just love that Baby girl
    She will ever still be my Baby no matter how old no matter how big
    My Prayers are with you Duggars
    Kisses to your new Baby Girl

  4. I feel sorry for the baby. I think someone upstairs is trying to tell you something now. It is time to stop enought is enough. Even though you have the means you are taking away from the other children.
    I watch the show say yes to the dress . Don’t tell me that you can still be modest after having 18 kids there is no way.
    Sure hope the baby makes it.

  5. To Michell, Jim Bob and the entire family:
    Congradulations to your new addition. I have been praying that Josie gets better and Michelle. Your family is a true inspiration to a strong and loving family. Wishing the entire family many blessings and I pray for a speedy recovery. Looking forwards to seeing you in the upcoming events updates on the family.
    God Bless,

  6. I feel like Michell and Jim Bob have enough going on with the kids they have they cant even give them the time they need this baby is lucky it lived> I feel its greedy on there part that they go ahead and not think of the risk of Michell life at her age and after having 18 alread and the babys life just because they wont 19 children Its like she is a Queen Bee producing these childen and letting everyone around her raise them if I was a older child I would be saying enough already its just not two normal I think to have so many children happy to see the baby made it what problems in the furture will tell it all good luck to the other kids hope they grow up to have a normal life time will tell that also it looks good but is it as good as it looks I wonder what behind closed doors sometimes hope its all its cut out to be thats TV for ya!!!!

  7. Lana & ginger hollis Have you ever heard that the Lord is the only one that can Judge?? I think you need to think of that before you start judging someones life. I am sure many might find flaws with you. I believe that each child is a blessing and as long as a doctor tells you that you can have children and that is what you want go for it. Many women are just starting their family in their 30’s and I am sure you find no fault with their choice, but because the Duggar Family has many children you find fault with them. Now is that really fair?? My Grand mother had 12 children and everyone of them grew up just fine. In fact because the older children help raise the younger children I think they are better for it. It takes a village to raise a child and the village is your family. I know my mother has many strengths that she has Received from her sisters and brothers as well as her parents.

    The Duggar Family: God Bless your new baby and my families prayers are with you.

  8. Hi there!!! I just wanted to let you know, that I think you have a wonderful beautiful family. I know everyone ask you, “how do you and Jim do it? You must certainly have patients! I am sooo please that you all have God with you! and that all of you are Christians like Me and my Family.

    Also, I am glad to hear that Jordyn (19) Oh Boy,, I hope I have her name right, anyways, I pray all the time for her to get big and strong, so that she can joing your family at home!!!
