Reality stars Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar are expanding their family for the twentieth time.

The ’19 Kids and Counting’ stars shared that Michelle is about three and a half months pregnant and is due next April with baby #20! She said: “We are so excited. I feel good. I am past the sickness stage now.”

The Duggars understand that people might question their decision to have another baby after their youngest daughter’s medical issues (being born at 25 weeks and weighing just 1lb, 6 oz.), but they shared:

“Michelle is probably in better health now than she was 10 years ago. She has been getting on an elliptical for about an hour a day and is very careful of what she eats. If we had lived by fear after Michelle had preeclampsia after her second delivery, we would have missed out on all our wonderful blessings. So many of her pregnancies have gone extremely well.”

Michelle said : “We are just going to do the best we can. I am taking a nap every day, and we are just taking good care. I’ve never had a planned C-section. So this one will be different.”

The couple are parents to children Joshua, 23, twins Jana and John-David, 21; Jill, 20; Jessa, 19; Jinger, 17; Joseph, 16; Josiah, 15; Joy-Anna, 14; twins Jedidiah and Jeremiah, 12; Jason, 11; James, 10; Justin, 8; Jackson, 7; Johanna, 6; Jennifer, 4; and Jordyn, 3, and Josie, almost 2.
