I don't have anything against families, but I don't think any child should be saddled with a name like Jinger. Especially if your dad is Jim Bob. Say it with me, folks ... only in Arkansas.
Woman Gives Birth to Her 15th Child!
Michelle Duggar, 37, of Fayetteville, Ark., gave birth on Sunday to Jackson Levi Duggar, her 15th child. Her husband, and father of the brood whose names all begin with the letter "J," is former Arkansas state legislator Jim Bob Duggar.
See a photo of the very large Duggar family taken in April when Michelle was named Arkansas Young Mother of the Year.
The Associated Press reports that mother and baby are doing well after the Caesarean section. Jackson weighed in at 7 pounds, 8 ounces. "She's a trouper. She's just all smiles," grandmother Mary Duggar told AP. She gets the job of taking care of the 14 kids while Mom is in the hospital for three or four days. The Duggers are even considering having more children. Jim Bob told AP that he leaves that decision to his wife. "I have always left it up to Michelle because she's actually the one that carries them and does all the labor," he said. "But we both love children. Even yesterday, she said she would like to have some more."
Michelle is a busy woman. In addition to caring and cooking for a family of 17, she also home schools the children and is helping to build the family's new home from the ground up. In addition to Jackson, the family includes: Joshua, 16; twins Jana and John-David, 14; Jill, 13; Jessa, 11; Jinger, 10; Joseph, 9; Josiah, 7; Joy-Anna, 6; twins Jeremiah and Jedidiah, 5; Jason, 4; James, 2; and Justin, 1.
