Because there just aren't enough Duggars in the world, patriarchs Jim Bob and Michelle will be welcoming another little Duggar to family dinners next summer. Except this time it's another grandchild: Son Josh and his wife Anna are expecting their second child.
True to Duggar tradition, Anna became pregnant shortly before daughter Mackynzie turned 1. She announced it to her husband and the family on October 8; the big news will be featured in a special about Mackynzie Duggar's birthday airing this Sunday on TLC.
Whether you agree with the Duggars' religious views (or their apparent determination to populate their own small city) or not, it's kind of hard to hate on them. Unlike a lot of reality show families, they seem to have done a good job of holding on to their values and identities despite their fame.
Anna suffered a miscarriage in between Mackynzie and this new pregnancy. And of course, the family's no stranger to difficulties: Baby Josie was born three and a half months premature after Michelle Duggar developed preeclampsia.
For those who are keeping score at home, that will be 19 Duggar kids, one Duggar daughter-in-law, and soon to be two Duggar grandchildren. Can you imagine the size of that Thanksgiving table?
