Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar adding 20th child to brood (Video)

When Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” have an announcement to make, it usually means one thing.

“I’m almost a little afraid to ask,” Ann Curry told the Duggar matriarch, who then announced she was pregnant with her 20th child on the “Today” show. The next Duggar is due in April.

Curry took the liberty of asking a question many of us wonder about: “With all due respect, why isn’t 19 not enough for you?”

“We always have the motto at our house: ‘There’s always room for one more,’” Michelle Duggar replied. “We didn’t want to stop at an odd number, either,” Jim Bob later added.
