Duggar Baby #19 Born After Emergency C-Section

12/11/2009 11:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michelle DuggarMichelle Duggar gave birth to baby #19 last night after the reality star was rushed to the operating room for an emergency.

TMZ spoke with a rep from TLC who told us, "Michelle, who has been in the hospital recovering from a gallstone, was taken to the OR for an emergency c-section."

At 6:27 PM, Michelle and Jim Bob welcomed their new daughter, Josie Brooklyn ... who weighed in at 1lb., 6 oz.

We're told Michelle is resting comfortably and the baby is "stable" -- although she's in the neonatal intensive-care unit at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.

The rep added, "The most important thing right now is for Mom and baby Josie to get as much rest as possible. The family is grateful for all the prayers and well wishes during their recovery."

Maybe this is her body telling her that she has had ENOUGH KIDS ALREADY!!!!!!!! She is damn lucky that the baby is fine but seriously sooner or later something tragic is going to happen She doesn't know when to stop and love the children that she already has and to appreciate them and finally stop being a baby machine!!!

Religious nut-cases! Nothing like having 19 kids, to be worlds most obnoxious hog of the Earth's limited resources.

Dad is on a "I'm God Trip"... Mom's body must be wrecked.

Keeping a 1lb premie baby alive in a neonatal unit costs a fortune.
There may be additional problems with the baby.
This couple has no social conscience and is disgusting !!!!!
