Another Duggar Pregnancy: Can We Expect Another 19 Kids From Josh And Anna Duggar?
Another Duggar pregnancy has our interests piqued, as Josh Duggar, oldest of the Duggar tribe that first entered our living rooms back in 2008, and his wife Anna announced that they are expecting their third child.
Josh, 25, and Anna, 23, told People Magazine on Monday that the couple is pregnant with their third child. He/she will join the couple's 3-year-old Mackynzie and 21-month-old Michael to become the third Duggar grandchild. Anna is about six months along. The couple knows the sex, but has decided to keep it to themselves for now.

Josh and Anna have a lot of shoes to fill, as the grandparents of the new baby, reality celebrities Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" (formerly "18 Kids and Counting", formerly "17 Kids and Counting") have given the world 19 children -- nine girls and ten boys -- all with names that start with the letter "J." (What do you want to wager that the subsidiary Duggar clan will follow this tradition, creating a flock of "M"-initialed offspring?)
"Josh and Anna are great parents," Jim Bob, 47, told People Magazine. "It is neat to see their family expanding."
The Arkansas-based Duggars, who adhere to strict fundamentalist beliefs in regards to birth control, raising children and modesty, announced another Duggar pregnancy amidst fears surrounding Michelle's 2011 miscarriage, as well as the couple's own miscarriage back in 2010.
"With my mom's last pregnancy there are questions and the fear of every expectant parent that this could end," Josh told People Magazine. "There is always some sort of risk with pregnancy and you never really know."
With number three on the way, can we expect another 19 children from the expanding Duggar tribe? In 2011, Baby Center reported that Josh joked about having 25 kids, but says that it's not a certainty. That decision is left up to a higher power because "God has the control," Josh explained.
