The Duggar Kids Will Battle Mom & Dad In The Kiddie Department — They All Want Huge Families Of Their Own!

The ’19 Kids & Counting’ crew admit they all want big broods one day. It’s a battle for the biggest bunch — talk about sibling rivalry!

Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar went on the Today show this morning, with 18 of their 19 extraordinarily well-behaved kids (oldest Josh was missing) to discuss their new book A Love That Multiplies and the season premiere of their hit TLC show 19 Kids and Counting.

And to our surprise, all the Duggar offspring LOVE being a part of a huge family — they  want dozens of kids of their own!

“I guess our parents always taught us that we are best friends,” daughter Jinger tells Meredith Vieira and Matt Lauer. “Having your best friends with you all the time, your brothers and sisters, is really special.”

Do you think having a family THIS big is OK? Or should procreating be limited?

Let’s not forget: The oldest Duggar, Josh, is only 23, but he and his wife Anna already have a 20-month-old daughter Mackynzie and are expecting a little boy any day now. And they plan on having 20-25 kids!
