Duggar Family News: 12 Duggars Kids With Chicken Pox – The Duggar family is known for a few things: first, for being crazy conservative Christians who don’t believe in birth control; second, for having their own reality show on TLC, home of recycled entertainment; and third, for having 19 kids, all with names starting with the letter ‘J’.

But I may be being too hard of these folks. After all, having 19 kids is going to be a difficult enough undertaking, especially when you are against basic human creations like the birth control pills, and so could have another ten by the time menopause hits.

Their latest, Josie, was born with severe physical problems due to a premature labor, which caused her to spend six months in the hospital before coming home. But, apparently, that wasn’t the only reason she could be taken back to the family’s self-made home.


When they were prepping to bring the little one home, one of their children came down with chicken pox. Then eleven more of them did, and even the crew that film their show were at risk. In the end, they had to go through an entire house of sick kids, which meant that Josie had to stay in the hospital until the outbreak had passed.

Despite the strain of this kind of thing, and the fact that their last child almost died on complications which could easily happen again, the Duggars say they are open to baby number 20. Or, rather, they couldn’t stop it. Michelle and Jim Bob claim they can’t control it, so if it happens, it happens.
