Reality show mom gives birth to 19th child

An Arkansas couple featured on the reality TV show “18 Kids and Counting” now has 19.

Cable network TLC says 43-year-old Michelle Duggar gave birth to a 1-pound, 6-ounce daughter Thursday night during an emergency cesarean section. She had been due March 18.

TLC says the child is in stable condition in the neonatal intensive care unit for extended care at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock.

The network airs the show starring Duggar, her 44-year-old husband, Jim Bob, and their brood.

It says the Duggars named their 19th child and ninth daughter Josie Brooklyn.

The Duggars' first grandchild was born Oct. 8. Their oldest son, Josh, and his wife, Anna, also had a daughter, Mackynzie Renee Duggar.
