17 is Now 18 in Rogers, AR

. Friday, December 19

Meet the Duggar family of Rogers, Arkansas. Jim Bob (I'm not making that up!) and. Michelle Duggar gave birth to Jordyn-Grace Makiya Duggar on Thursday, bringing the total number of children up to 18, ranging in ages newborn to 20.  Here's the list: Joshua, 20; Jana, 18; John-David, 18; Jill, 17; Jessa, 16; Jinger, 14; Joseph, 13; Josiah, 12; Joy-Anna, 11; Jeremiah, 9; Jedidiah, 9; Jason, 8; James, 7; Justin, 6; Jackson, 4; Johannah, 3; and Jennifer, 1.

The family has a show on TLC called "17 Kids and Counting," which will air the delivery of Jordyn's birth by C-section. And I guess that answers the question of how ol' Jim Bob feeds his family.

Wanna bet they keep going?

That is a very big family with a very big house. I saw an interview they did recently saying they aren't done yet, wow!

What was it they said about the GI's in WWII, over paid over sexed and over here (UK)
Seems to me he's dodged the draft to concentrate on population growth in the homeland!

OH, you bet! He's 43 and wife is 42, so we're batting for a Guinness record. I wonder how many Down's kids they'll have before they stop?

Must be embarrassing for the kidssssssssssssssssss. Is that 18(s)

I was thinking about that too. I have to wonder how many of them will actually have children themselves. I would hate to think that they'd grow up thinking it was normal to have that many!

I presume that's more or less the first C-section she's needed. You can't keep on going with those.
