    Couple Has 17th Child

    By JILL ZEMAN, Associated Press Writer
    52 minutes ago

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - It's a girl again for the Duggars. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar welcomed their 17th child, and seventh daughter, into the world Thursday.

    Jennifer Danielle was born at 10:01 a.m. at Saint Mary's Hospital in Rogers, Ark., the Duggars said in an interview. Jennifer weighed 8 pounds, 8 ounces and arrived five days after Michelle's due date.

    Less than 30 minutes after giving birth, the Duggars already were talking of having more.

    "We'd love to have more," Michelle said, adding that the girls are outnumbered seven to 10 in the family. "We love the ruffles and lace."

    Jennifer joins the fast-growing Duggar brood, who live in Tontitown in a 7,000-square-foot home. All the children whose names start with the letter J are home-schooled.

    The oldest is 19 and the youngest, before Jennifer, is almost 2 years old.

    "We are just so grateful to God for another gift from him," said Jim Bob Duggar, 42, a former state representative. "We are just so thankful to him that everything went just very well."

    Jennifer joins siblings Joshua, 19; John David, 17; Janna, 17; Jill, 16; Jessa, 14; Jinger, 13; Joseph, 12; Josiah, 11; Joy-Anna, 9; Jedidiah, 8; Jeremiah, 8; Jason 7; James 6; Justin, 4; Jackson, 3; Johannah, almost 2.

    The family includes two sets of twins.

    Michelle Duggar said that Joshua, Janna, Jill and Jessa were at the hospital, but that the rest of the family planned to visit their new sister later Thursday.

    Michelle Duggar said she started feeling contractions Wednesday night and went to the hospital at about 5 a.m. Thursday.

    "It actually went fast," she said. "I guess once I started progressing, it went within 30 minutes."

    Jennifer was born via a VBAC or vaginal birth after Caesarean, Jim Bob Duggar said.

    The Duggars have been featured on several programs on cable's Discovery Health Network. The next special, the Duggar Family Album, is scheduled to air next month, Jim Bob Duggar said.

    Among the "fun facts" listed on Discovery Health's Web page devoted to the Duggars: A baby has been born in every month except June; the Duggars have gone through an estimated 90,000 diapers, and Michelle, 40, has been pregnant for 126 months or 10.5 years of her life.

    My wife's great-aunt had 16 kids. Her sister had 14.

    They are from God's country up in Maria Stein where the good Catholic farm families can field football teams. Silos barely outnumber church steeples.

    There's something very irresponsible about this.

    As long as you can provide for all their needs...physical, emotional, and spiritual...and you truly want them, I don't see having all those kids as a bad thing.

    I would never do it, but more power to 'em.

    Yeah we need to over-populate the world even more than it is right now.

    I don't think they figured out how this is happening.

    I use to work with someone, who had, at last count, 13 children. I have lost track of them the last few years but I'm sure they have more since. They were Morman and it was connected with their religion someway that it was storing up blessings or something like that.

    Daddy must have a heck of a job to afford that.

    I saw it said he was a former state representative but what's he doing now?

    Can you imagine putting that many kids through college?

    This family has been on TV several times-- specials on TLC or something.

    I don't remember exactly but they live somewhat of a "Puritan" lifestyle. All home-schooled.

    They all seem quite nice.

    On the other hand, I'll admit, I think it's weird. Beyond weird. Unnatural even.

    I'd say more "Pentecostal" lifestyle. IIRC all the girls and Mom have long hair and wear dresses - but no makeup. Boys were more casual.

    If the girls had wrap around dresses and had their hair in a beehive hairdo then they were Pentecostals.

    I think they got lost in that Bible verse: Be fruitful and multiply.
