Time Magazine Throwing Shade At Duggar Family
19 Kids and Counting: Why the Duggar Family Keeps Having Kids
Michelle Duggar isn’t big on leaving well enough alone. Well enough, in this prolific procreator’s case, is 19 children. This week, we learned she wants more.
In December, she suffered a much-publicized miscarriage of a girl she and her husband, Jim Bob, named Jubilee Shalom; she would have been the couple’s 20th child. On Tuesday, the Duggars made their first public appearance since losing that pregnancy, where Michelle Duggar told Ann Curry on Today that “I would do it again.”
She clearly loves babies, and I get that. But at some point, it would seem prudent to be happy with your (abundant) lot. Duggar is 45, well into the gray area where pregnancies are more apt to go awry. The Duggars seem so sincere that it would feel downright insincere to question whether their desire to welcome another child to their brood could have anything to do with the continued relevancy of their nine-season reality show, 19 Kids and Counting. The season premiere aired Tuesday night, after their Today interview, and focused on the recent miscarriage.
