Michelle Duggar on Having 20 Kids: Not For Everyone!
Michelle Duggar, who is pregnant with her 20th child, has made the understatement of all time, saying having that many kids probably isn’t for everyone.
With 18 of her 19 kids still at home, one on the way and two grandchildren, how does Michelle get any rest? “I am taking a power nap every day,” she says.
“And I’m eating a lot of protein and green vegetables and no caffeine, which is a new thing for me,” says the 45-year old star of 19 Kids and Counting.
Michelle and husband Jim Bob Duggar, 46, were believed to have stopped their baby making ways after daughter Josie’s life-threatening preeclampsia.
Not the case.
“I read up a lot on preeclampsia [while pregnant with Josie],” says Michelle, “It is a crazy, random thing. I have been getting counseled from a high-risk pregnancy doctor in Little Rock and taking good care of myself.”
The family’s frightening journey with Josie – born at only 25 weeks and weighing just over a pound in 2009 – was documented on 19 Kids and Counting.
