Number 19 is here! Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar welcomed baby girl Josie Brooklyn to the world yesterday evening. Born prematurely, the tiny tot weighed in at 1 pound, 6 ounces! After successfully dealing with gallstone issues, the mother of many was rushed to the hospital with complications. According to People, "Michelle was taken to the OR for an emergency C-section. She is resting comfortably, and the baby is stable and in the NICU for extended care." Congratulations to the Duggar family! We wish Michelle a speedy recovery and hope Josie Brooklyn will soon be able to join the rest of her family in their home.
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are grandparents! Their eldest son Josh and his wife Anna welcomed a baby girl, Mackynzie Renée Duggar, on Oct. 8 at 6:39 p.m. She was born at the couple's home with the help of a midwife and a doula. Congratulations to the new family, and cheers to the next generation of the big brood!

Will Meredith Veira be disappointed? The newswoman joked on air that she'd give Josh and Anna Duggar a nice baby gift if the couple went with the letter "M" and named their child after her. While Josh's parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar (best known for their show 18 Kids and Counting) have named all of their offspring with the letter "J," the expectant couple aren't so sure they'll stick to one part of the alphabet.
Perhaps, they honored the soon-to-be daddy's mother by using the first letter of her moniker for the grandbaby's name. The much-anticipated bundle of joy, set to arrive on Oct. 20, will go by Mackynzie Renée.
The next generation of Duggars will begin with a baby girl! The entire big brood — Jim Bob, Michelle, and their 18 children, including eldest son Josh and his wife, Anna — appeared on The Today Show this morning to uncover the sex of the impending babe! The newlyweds cut into a cake dyed pink to reveal that the first grandchild will be a lil lady. Though the couple has not committed to a single-letter name theme like Josh's parents, plans to decide on a fitting moniker for the child due in October are in the works! Congratulations!
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are going to be grandparents! The couple made famous by their TLC show, Eighteen Kids and Counting, is growing their family. But, this time it's not Michelle who is with child, but her daughter-in-law, Anna. Joshua Duggar, 21, the eldest of Jim Bob and Michelle's brood, got married in September and the newlyweds recently announced their exciting baby news. The parents-to-be plan to leave the number of children they have in "God's hands" and name them with a theme, but no word if they will continue the "J" tradition. The bundle of joy is due on October 18. We're looking forward to the next generation of Duggars!
