    The Duggars want 20th child

    The Duggars: We're Open to Having a 20th Child

    Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar with daughter Josie

    Facebook Twitter E-mail Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar have always been open about their willingness to have children. But when the devout Baptists and stars of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting faced the catastrophic aftereffects of their 19th child's premature birth, many assumed they might be done.

    But now the couple who only recently brought baby Josie home after being hospitalized for six months as she recovered from a perforated bowel and rare digestive problems say they are ready to consider a 20th child.

    "Our family is stronger than ever," Jim Bob, 45, tells PEOPLE in its new issue. "We made it through the storm."

    That's not to say that everything has been easy with baby Josie. Born early after Michelle developed preeclampsia (pregnancy-induced high blood pressure), Josie was just 8 days old when a perforated bowel threatened her life.

    "When she first came home, I couldn't sleep at all," says Michelle, 43. "That was the scariest part for me, having the full responsibility of her care on my shoulders ... It was intimidating."

    Similarly daunting are the very real medical risks Michelle could face with another pregnancy particularly a return of preeclampsia, which can lead to a stroke or prove fatal. But despite the risk and intense criticism the pair vow to stick to their beliefs.

    "People think we are overpopulating the world," says Jim Bob. "We are following our convictions."

    After 19 kids I can imagine sex being pleasurable for either of them.

    exactly. her womb has been thru a lot, not to mention she has entered the age where child bearing can possibly come with complications. pro-creation is cool but damn. only thing i glad for is that is their own money, and of course the money from the show, that minding their children and not tax payers' money.

    I think they are selfish, money or no money. Ppl had many children back in the day out of necessity since infant mortality was so high.

    Now, these ppl have all these kids and you can be damn sure that as a parent you cannot give each child equal attention and treatment with so many to contend with.

    the older ones become de facto parents which I think is so freakin unfair to them.

    that's a given and I agree it's unfair.... they don't have a real childhood...they're built in babysitters

    lol! You know when I was younger and didnt understand what giving birth really meant, I wanted 7 kids....3 sets of twins and one extra

    I think once u get past 10 your attention is so divided and the age span starts to affect relationships due to the age spreads.

    my mum is from a big Catholic family and her older siblings were essentially her minders since she was the baby.

    I'd love 4 kids but I do think about making sure I have time for all of them. Having kids shouldnt be solely about fulfilling a vanity as it seems it is with these folks.

    well i see nothing wrong with having as many children as you can be blessed with. they managed to get this far prior to having a show and who knows how their family structure works. she is a stay at home mom so for the most part, her time can be divided. i just thinks she needs to let her nanny chill out.

    i dunno, if u need a nanny because of the numbers when u are a stay at home mum, I start to look sideways at the whole thing.

    I'd love a big family just cause I love kids but I am a big believer in quality time for each so its kinda tricky for me.

    Kids should be kids and not babysitters for their young sibings, you know?

    LMAO at that visual.U are so wrong for this................even tho it's probably true!

    On the one hand I say if they can afford it,then why not. But then on the other hand I kinda feel like "hollywood" has gotten to them and they just breeding fuh breeding sake.........
