19 Kids and Counting becomes 20 Kids and Counting?


I've never been a huge fan of this show- quite frankly, the idea of having so many children scares the heck outta me! I do watch it occasionally when flicking the channels though and I am amazed to hear that they have announced that the family will be adding yet another addition to their family- 20 kids and counting!!!! 
WOW! (via gawker.com)

What do you think of this family?

hahahaha i agree with the KEGELS comment! I hope having all of these kids is not some kind of a distraction to real issues. I mean finish raising the ones you have, enjoy your grand kids, and enjoy being husband and wife. I'm no therapist and it is wonderful to want to be a mommy but this is too much in my opinion.

They seem happy though so best wishes to them and the new little one!

@adeptbrunette hahaha! hilarious!

I cannot imagine ever having that many kids- good thing she has older ones to help look after the younguns- can you imagine have 20 under 10 year olds? I think you'd go crazy.

I think it's so weird that their oldest son got married and they started having kids and his kids are going to be older than the new editions to the family :S

KEGELS definitely! I hope they pay attention to all their kids, my mom came from a big family and it ends up being that the eldest kids are the ones raising the babies. I hope this is not just for the '15 mins of fame'.

who would want to raise an army of children? are they a kid factory or farm? this seems abnormal!!! disgusting in my opinion!!!!

it would be weird to have such a large family, i think!

Oh my!

LOL @adeptbrunette!!!!!!!!!!!!! ROFLOL Agreed!

If that's what they want to do and it works for them... props. But for the average family it's just insane for many reasons! The main concern I have with this is the complications with pre-eclampsia she had in her last pregnancy. Her and baby were in a risky situation. Not only that, but the woman is 45 which is a risky age already for anyone in pregnancy.

Annoying show

this family gives me the creeps .. the wife never raises her voice or seems to have a bad moment ... its like she is programmed ... or a stepford wife ...

20 kids is too many, can she really dedicate the time and love and learning each child needs, it seems to me she spends the time with the new child for a year, then casts them off to an older sibling

This show irks me ... besides didnt she almost die giving birth to the 19th one ...

So just thought I would bring this thread up to date...as a lot probably know, she miscarried the 20th baby (cant remember how far along she was)..but many people are disgusted by her for even TRYING to have another after her 19th was born SO premature and had so many complications so I can only imagine the hate mail she is probably getting (not saying Im on this side necessarily). Also, what ive heard in the news (and seen the photos), there is a HUGE controversy because she released photos of the dead baby at the Memorial Service. I have only seen two photos, both of just the baby's feet, but it still IS quite disturbing....
