For the Duggar family, 19 children is not enough. The stars of TLC's hit show 19 Kids and Counting admit in a new interview that they'd like to see the number of their enormous brood continue to rise.
Parents Jim Bob and Michelle were joined by their 19 children, as well as son Joshua's wife and two twins, on Today this morning. There they were greeted by Savannah Guthrie who asked them pointedly if they have any big news to share.
"Not that I know of," Michelle says. "We would love to, but we don't today."
That doesn't mean they aren't trying, though. The 45-year-old admits that she definitely has plans for more babies in the future.
"We definitely are. We would love more if the Lord saw fit to give us more," she says. "So, we will wait and see. But today isn't one of those days where we get to make that kind of announcement. I think our big announcement is that our new season is starting up."
"It is fun trying though," Jim Bob adds with a laugh.
Michelle had recently been expecting their 20th child and was due to give birth in April, but she suffered a miscarriage in December. Our guess is that we'll get to see how the Duggars respond to that tragedy when the new season of 19 Kids and Counting returns on Aug. 28.
"I feel like my heart broke telling my children," Michelle said at the time. "They have all been so excited about this baby and looking forward to April coming around and having a new little one in our arms. That was the most difficult. The Lord is the giver of life and He can choose when that life is ready to go on and be with Him."
