Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their large family appeared Monday on the TODAY show to promote the new season of their TLC reality show ’19 Kids and Counting.’
The logistics of transporting a group of 24, including a daughter-in-law and Duggar grandchildren Mackynzie, 3, and Michael, 20 months, is no easy feat. They told TODAY co-host Natalie Morales that the Duggar mob arrived in NYC on four separate flights from their home in Arkansas.
Most of their exclusive appearances on NBC’s TODAY include a baby announcement and this time was no different. Josh and Anna Duggar revealed that she is six months pregnant with the couple’s third child.
The new baby will likely receive an M name, a new twist on the J naming convention of Jim Bob and Michelle’s brood. Josh suggested that maybe they would change it up this time … but we don’t believe it.
For fans of the show, you’ll be interested to know that Anna’s sister Priscilla Keller Waller is also pregnant and due any day now. Her wedding to Christian mission worker David Waller was featured on ’19 Kids and Counting’ in December 2011 with many of the Duggars in the wedding party.
A series of three TLC specials covering the Duggar family trip to Japan and China begins March 12, 2013, followed by the season 11 premiere on April 2, 2013.
