The ’19 Kids & Counting’ stars are still counting. Michelle Duggar revealed that she still ‘hopes’ to welcome her twentieth child and that she is still trying for her next ‘blessing.’ What do YOU think?

Michelle Duggar and Jim Bob Duggar are the proud parents of 19 kids — but if their health allows them, they will continue to expand their family. Michelle revealed that she is “trying” for baby number 20 — and very hopeful for another baby following a series of health scares and a devastating miscarriage.

Michelle, 47 is a mom of 19 kids — and the grandma of 3! — but she is still hoping that she will be blessed with another bundle of joy.

“I would be so grateful if the Lord blessed us with another one,” Michelle told Celebrity Baby Scoop. “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.”

If you add in her young grandchildren, Michelle has even more little ones to love. “We are also definitely enjoying our grandbabies! They are so precious!” she said.

Michelle Duggar Suffers Miscarriage

Getting pregnant and carrying the baby to term isn’t so easy for Michelle as it was when she was younger. Michelle miscarried her daughter Jubilee in 2011, and had a health scare when her daughter Josie was born early at only 1 pound, 6 ounces.

“My health is good and I am grateful for that,” Michelle told Celebrity Baby Scoop. “I think it could be different; every person struggles with different things, but I am so grateful that my health is good and I am able to enjoy running and chasing my little ones around at this point in my life

What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Do you think Michelle & Jim Bob should try for baby #20?
