So what if she’s 45? Michelle Duggar’s reproductive organs are not going silently into that good night. Jim Bob has fertilized her, yet again. The pair announced today that they are three months gone with number 20. “I was not thinking that God would give us another one, and we are just so grateful,” she said. “We didn’t want to stop on an odd number,” Jim Bob added. Though her last pregnancy with two-year-old Josie, who was born three months prematurely, was a difficult one, Michelle has been doing all she can to make sure she’s as healthy as possible for the birth of their next baby — including eating lots of dill pickles and working out five or six days a week.
