Michelle Duggar has emergency C-section, welcomes 19th baby
Michelle Duggar checked into the hospital for a gallstone problem, but will be leaving with a baby.
The "18 Kids and Counting" mom, who had been airlifted to the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Arkansas because of contractions caused by gallstone problems over the weekend, has had an emergency C-section. She and husband Jim Bob Duggar welcomed their 19th little one, a baby girl Thursday night at the, reports People.
Following Duggar family tradition, the couple stuck with "J" names, calling her Josie Brooklyn.
Josie, who weighed only 1 lb., 6 oz., was originally due in spring. As expected, Josie is in the NICU for extended care. She is currently stable.
So far, there's no word about why the emergency surgery was needed, but it's possible complications from the gallbladder issue were the cause.
We wish the Duggar family the best and that Josie will be able to go home soon!
