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."

THEY PAY FOR EVERYTHING THEMSELVES. Unlike all you liberal buttwads who want hand-out after hand-out. You bash thier religious beliefs because they are Christian, and that's just not the cool thing to be these days, is it? I bet if they were Muslem you would be defending thier religious rights to the end, right? That's the bottom line. All you liberal gay's, liberal hippie peace-lovers, liberal Jesus haters, & liberal "green" idiots are so quick to bash a Christian, but us Christians are expected to accept your "lifestyles" with no objections. If we do object in any way, we are then branded as "biggots", "war-mongers", and "Jesus freaks". Well, I am now branding all of you as hypocrites, every last one of you. Sickos, just plain degenerate, disgusting douche-nozzles.

GOD bless you Duggars!
May JESUS answer all your prayers.
Oh, and, wait for it, here it comes, the one phrase that will piss those Jesus haters off, Merry CHRISTmas!! (Hey, if you don't belive in Jesus, don't celebrate his holiday!!)

A normal mom    

Omg that woman is a nutcase. I think she just enjoys the attention surrouding a pregnancy. Yes God gave her children, but God also gave (some of us) the intelligence to use birth control. Like someone, her uterus is probably protesting from all the abuse.

The ultimate smackdown of these idiots would be for one or more of their brood to come out as gay, and want to adopt children not give birth to them. Seriously, when the planet is groaning under the strain of 6 billion plus people, these whackos aren't helping by breeding like rats. If Jim Bob loves his wife so much he should consider that maybe she is tired of being perpetually pregnant and just give it up already. No, I don't agree with their lifestyle, and they keep doing it because the farts who run TLC are willing to pay thru the arse to keep em' going!

Just sayin'    

Someone asked how much the breeders make:

"According to reality producer Terence Michael, the general rule of thumb is that reality-show families earn about 10 percent of a show’s per-episode budget. So, if TLC budgets about $250,000 to $400,000 per episode—and Michael suspects it does—that would mean $25,000 to $40,000 in the Duggars’ pockets for four or five days’ work, which is roughly how long it takes to film a typical episode."

It doesn't surprise me that people are so ignorant and heartless as to leave such vile comments for ANY family in a crisis situation. I already know there are sick, twisted individuals in this sad, depraved world. What shocks me is that ANYbody is still buying into that tired old myth of overpopulation!! Especially in this internet age when all one has to do is merely google the subject to find out the truth. Honestly! Overpopulation?? Why are there countries offering incentives for their citizens to give birth? It's because they are terrified of what the trends are showing- soon, there will not be enough people to sustain the world as we all know it. The children you are avoiding by using birth control or killing outright through abortion could be the ones sent to solve the world's problems. Who are you to decide which ones should exist? The very fact that you can sit at your computer and state your opinion means that you were given the chance to live. Is gratitude also something you lack? (besides intelligence, that is.)

Free the Duggar Girls???? What the hell are you talking about? The libtards posting on here are the narcissists, not the Duggars. Because the girls have modesty and are vital parts of the family they are slaves??? The boys work just as hard, they helped build their home (along with the girls). The people posting the hate comments obviously have never watched the show, had they they would know what kind of loving family the Duggars truly are. But because the girls don't dress like hookers and sleep around they are slaves...right.
Apparently you people don't study history, large families were once the norm where everyone worked hard, but I guess in today's world of instant gratification that is considered weird, sick and evil.
I would rather have a world full of Duggar's then the loser lib-wanna-be tree-hugger-che tshirt wearing obama worshiping idiots you haters are.

I don't understand why a family wants so many kids, but as long as they and not the government supports and cares for those kids -- and the kids are loved, educated and happy -- it's really no one else's business.
