'19 Kids and Counting': Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar trying for 20th baby

Michelle Duggar and her husband Jim Bob Duggar are not only celebrating their 29th wedding anniversary on TLC's "19 Kids and Counting," they are also trying to get pregnant with their 20th child.

"I would be so grateful if the Lord blessed us with another one," Michelle tells Celebrity Baby Scoop. "one. We're trying at this point and we shall see if that is a possibility. If not, we are so thankful and grateful for the ones that God has given us so far."

The 47-year-old mother of 19 grandmother of three says if another baby is not in the cards, at least she has her grandkids. "We are also definitely enjoying our grandbabies," she says. "They are so precious."

Of course Jim Bob and Michelle's 20-year-old daughter, Jenna Duggar, is now in a courtship, so if all goes according to tradition -- and it usually does in this family -- the elder Duggars could have more grandchildren in the way in the next few years.

To each their own... I'm 25 have 3 (youngest is 3m) and I'm done. Sleepless nights are not my thing... Nor is 19 kids.

I'd take this article with a grain of salt considering they don't even have a daughter named "Jenna".

I dont think they have ever been shy about having everyone understand that they will not try to prevent pregnancy.
