US Mum Gives Birth To 18th Child.

Anyone watch the show on TLC about the Duggar family with a house full of kids. Wanda watches it and I caught parts of it one night a while back. Well, they just had their 18th kid. Jeezzzz, what wrong with these people?? Even a dog is breed but so many times and then you stop. ;-)

Baby girl Jordyn-Grace Makiya Duggar entered the world via Caesarean section, weighing 7lb 3oz and measuring 20 inches long.
Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, who had not been expecting their latest arrival until January, said she was "a gift from God".
The proud father described the new baby as "just absolutely beautiful" and said they would "love to have more".
Mr and Mrs Duggar married in 1984 and held back from babies for four years.
"We don't want children right now," they said to themselves.
"We can't afford them. We want children in our timing, when we're ready."
And even after the birth of their first child, the couple did not want to rush ahead with more children and Mrs Duggar went back on the pill.
However, she became pregnant again while on the pill, but suffered a miscarriage.
That changed the mind of the staunch Christians, who felt they had robbed a child of a life and from that day on they decided to have as many children as "God saw fit".
Mrs Duggar's next pregnancy resulted in the birth of twins, and the rest followed, including another set of twins.
They now have 10 sons and eight daughters, including the latest addition to their family.
The couple, who are both estate agents, have built a family home in Tontitown in Arkansas that is big enough to allow for a few more additions yet.

    Twins add up fast. I've found out that. LOL!

    Well, let's say we don't have enough room. 6 was the limit.

    Well as long as they can afford to care for them themselves I guess. It annoys me when ppl have so many kids and expect social security to home them, feed them etc etc and they don't make any contribution to society apart from producing more and more kids.. grrrrr...

    How marvelous .... I am sure their family has a great time and I know from friends with several children, the more children you have the more the children have responsibilities to get in and help out. The family works as a team. Children are truly a gift from God. The mother certainly looks healthy and happy! I am happy for the family!
