    US Mum Gives Birth To 18th Child

    A woman from Arkansas has given birth to her 18th child - and says she has no plans to stop adding to her family yet.




    The Duggar family: the oldest is 20, the youngest (not shown) just one day old


    Baby girl Jordyn-Grace Makiya Duggar entered the world via Caesarean section, weighing 7lb 3oz and measuring 20 inches long.
    Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, who had not been expecting their latest arrival until January, said she was "a gift from God".
    The proud father described the new baby as "just absolutely beautiful" and said they would "love to have more".
    Mr and Mrs Duggar married in 1984 and held back from babies for four years.
    "We don't want children right now," they said to themselves.
    "We can't afford them. We want children in our timing, when we're ready."
    And even after the birth of their first child, the couple did not want to rush ahead with more children and Mrs Duggar went back on the pill.
    However, she became pregnant again while on the pill, but suffered a miscarriage.
    That changed the mind of the staunch Christians, who felt they had robbed a child of a life and from that day on they decided to have as many children as "God saw fit".
    Mrs Duggar's next pregnancy resulted in the birth of twins, and the rest followed, including another set of twins.
    They now have 10 sons and eight daughters, including the latest addition to their family.
    The couple, who are both estate agents, have built a family home in Tontitown in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] that is big enough to allow for a few more additions yet.

    Crazy....but at least they have built their own house to accommodate their family, and aren't just sponging an enormous council house off of the state, then complaining when they run out of room.
