The Duggar Family: The More the Merrier as the Duggar’s Welcome Child number 18, Jordyn-Grace Makiya Duggar
File this one under truth is stranger than fiction and you just can’t make this stuff up …
You heard of the TV show “Eight is Enough,” well add 10 to that and you have the Duggar family. The cable network TLC broadcasts a weekly show about the Duggars, called “Seventeen and Counting” … so maybe 18 is not enough. I guess we will have to check back in 10 to 12 months.
Most families celebrate their child’s 18th birthday as a special event. However, in the Duggar family 18 now represents the number of children for Jim Bob Duggar said Michelle Duggar. That is correct, Michelle Duggar, 42, gave birth last Thursday evening to her eighteenth child, a baby girl Jordyn-Grace Makiya Duggar. The Duggar’s have 10 sons and 8 daughters. WOW!!!
