SPRINGDALE, AR (CNN.COM / PEOPLE.COM) — They’re going for an even 20!

Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, stars of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” are expecting their 20th child this spring.

“We are so excited,” says Michelle, 45, who is now about three-and-a-half months into her pregnancy and due in April. “I feel good. I am past the sickness stage now.”

The Tontitown, Ark., couple, who are parents to children Joshua, 23 (who is married to Anna, 23 and has two children, Mackynzie, 2 and Michael, 4 months), twins Jana and John-David, 21; Jill, 20; Jessa, 19; Jinger, 17; Joseph, 16; Josiah, 15; Joy-Anna, 14; twins Jedidiah and Jeremiah, 12; Jason, 11; James, 10; Justin, 8; Jackson, 7; Johanna, 6; Jennifer, 4; and Jordyn, 3, weathered the medical emergency of their youngest daughter, Josie’s birth on Dec. 10, 2009.

She was born following Michelle’s preeclampsia diagnosis at a mere 25 weeks, weighing only 1lb., 6 oz.

Josie’s medical drama — and Michelle’s own fight for survival — was documented throughout their TV series. Josie will turn 2 in December and is developing normally, without any longterm effects from her premature birth.

“It is a miracle. Josie is the most energetic, busy little almost-2-year-old,” says Michelle. “She is short, and yet she can keep up with the big girls and she thinks she is just as big as they are. We are amazed at what she can do.”

    Why such the negative comments about the Duggar family. They raise their children as they see fit, they don’t live off the system. These people actually work and teach their children to work. We need more parents like them to set an example for today’s youth. Maybe the Duggar’s need to start teaching parenting classes to the ones that need it. Thumbs up to the Duggar’s for providing us with good, clean, family value TV. Myself have learned techniques from this family on how to make a little change for the better.

    What absolute prostitution of a family & their children.

    Enough already. I don’t care what Jim Bob or the Mother Do but How about not pushing your brood on everyone else. Wait until a couple of these kids come home with the spirits on their breath, start chasing girls,,,,,,,,and catch a few. Then the downfall of more Reality TV People. They are in Arkansas are they not?
