'19 Kids And Counting' Duggar Family Expands Again


'19 Kids and Counting' family 'The Duggar's' just got even bigger after young couple Josh and wife Anna welcomed their second baby. '19 Kids and Counting', follows the story of America's biggest reality television family, headed by Jim Bob and Michelle who are parents to 19 children.

The couple are now playing the role of grandparents again, after their oldest son and his wife welcomed their baby-boy yesterday (15th June 2011). Josh and Anna already have a 20-month-old daughter named MACKynzie. The family first hit the headlines after starring on the Tlc reality show '17 and Counting', which followed the life of Jim Bob and Michelle and their 17 (now 19) children, all of whom have names beginning with the letter J. During an interview with People Magazine, Jim defended his large family, saying, "People think we are overpopulating the world. We are following our convictions". The family are also known for their strongly conservative Christian beliefs, especially on issues such as contraception and home-schooling. The Duggar children spend very little time on the internet or watching television. The family are representative of the 'Quiverfull Movement', which teaches that children are God's blessing.

The seventh series of '19 Kids and Counting' premiered on 7th June 2011, with the Duggars heading to Colorado to try skiing for the very first time.
