19th Duggar baby arrives via emergency C-section (video)


Michelle Duggar and husband Jim Bob of TLC’s “18 Kids and Counting” welcomed in the family’s 19th child, Josie Brooklyn, last night (December 10) at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.

Josie was born around 6:30 p.m. and weighed 1 lb., 6 oz., according to a post by TLC on Michelle’s blog. She delivered the infant via an emergency C-section procedure, and is said to be resting comfortably with her daughter, who is in stable condition in the neonatal intensive-care unit.

Michelle and Jim Bob issued a thank-you video to fans who were concerned with the reality star’s health. You can watch it here.

Congratulations to the happy couple and to Josie’s 18 siblings!
