Duggar family expecting 19th child

Yup, that's right. The "18 Kids and Counting" couple have child No. 19 on the way,  reports People. This time, Michelle Duggar was still breastfeeding when she realized she might be pregnant.

"I was in Weight Watchers with Jim Bob and I wasn't losing any weight," she says. "I couldn't figure it out. I was doing what I should. And the baby, who was nursing, was fussy. I kept thinking, 'This isn't right. She isn't teething, she doesn't have an ear infection. I'm not cheating on my diet, I should be losing weight.' Then, I put two and two together and wondered if I could possibly be pregnant."

Jim Bob, 44, and Michelle, 42, are both "thrilled" for the new baby, who should arrive in spring, a few months after their first grandchild, Mackynzie Renee is born to son Joshua, 21, and his wife Anna, 21.

Naturally, the new addition will also have a J-name, but the family will have to wait until the gender is determined before selecting a name.

As it stands now, the Duggars are the parents to Joshua (married), twins Jana & John-David, 19; Jill, 18; Jessa, 16; Jinger, 15; Joseph, 14; Josiah, 13; Joy-Anna, 11; twins Jedidiah and Jeremiah, 10; Jason, 9; James, 8; Justin, 6; Jackson, 5; Johanna, 3; Jennifer, 2, and Jordyn-Grace, 8 months.

"18 Kids and Counting" airs on TLC on Tuesday nights.
