With their entire family gathered around them, Michelle and her husband Jim-Bob gave an update on little Josie’s progress and talked about the new season of their TLC show 19 Kids and Counting.
Born early at 25 weeks due to Michelle’s pre-eclampsia, Josie weighed just 1lb 6oz and was forced to spend extended periods in the hospital due to various health concerns. Now back home, Jim-Bob says that she’s doing well despite needing supplemental oxygen while sleeping, and adds, “By the time she’s 2 she should be caught up developmentally.”
So could there be a 20th Duggar child on the way sometime soon? Michelle admits they’re not ruling it out, saying “we would welcome” another babe.
Earlier this year Michelle, 43, told People, “We’ll just wait and see what God has in store.”
