More Babies for The Duggar Family?

By JustMommies

Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar have been through a trying period following the birth of their 19th child, Josie, who was born prematurely and spent six months in the hospital dealing with a multitude of health issues -- including digestive problems and a perforated bowel at just eight days old.

Now, the couple is saying they are open to baby number twenty, telling People magazine that they are "ready for more." Jim Bob tells the mag, "Our family is stronger than ever ... we made it through the storm."

"When she first came home, I couldn't sleep at all," Michelle revealed. "That was the scariest part for me, having the full responsibility of her care on my shoulders. It was intimidating."

Michelle, 43, and Jim Bob, 45, say despite the risks and all they've been through,  they are moving forward. "People think we are overpopulating the world," Jim Bob said. "We are following our convictions."

The couple is on the cover of the new issue of People, on stands this Friday.

What do you think? Should the couple try for baby #20?
