Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s 19th child, who was born at just 25 weeks and weighed only 1 lb., 6 oz., gets a visit from mom on an upcoming episode of their TLC reality show, 19 Kids and Counting, which airs Tuesday (9 p.m. EST), Us reports.
“Momma’s here. She looks so big to me,” Michelle, 43, says to Josie, who is 47 days old and still hospitalized.
A nurse from the intensive care unit explains that Josie now weighs 2 lbs., 3 1/2 oz. “She eats breast milk that mom has pumped and we have, and she gets it continuously at six milliliters an hour, which is about a teaspoon an hour.”
Josie has “been very energetic,” Michelle proudly says. “She’s going to have to be to keep up with everybody at home.”
Michelle tries to place a headband on Josie’s head, but decides “it may be too snug” with her IV. “You look so beautiful, even without the bow,” Michelle says. “You’re just beautiful.”
