In the Limelight: The Duggars Up the Family Count

By: Tiffani Haynes

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s huge family has made headlines and television shows for years. Michelle is expecting their 19th child in the spring. The two will celebrate their 20th anniversary this year and Michelle’s been pregnant every year since then. At one point it was estimated she’d been pregnant for 11 years of her life.

The most recent Duggar addition has come from Jim Bob and Michelle’s oldest child, Joshua and his new wife, Anna. Their daughter, Mackynzie Renee Duggar, was born on Thursday and weighed in at 8 pounds and was 19.5 inches long.

The family’s show on TLC, “18 Kids and Counting,” will now have to change its name to accommodate for the new bundle of joy.

The episode of Mackynzie’s birth will air on Tuesday and is appropriately titled “First Grandduggar.” This may be the first grandchild but it certainly won’t be the last.
