Why stop at 19 kids when you’re biologically capable of going for 20? Yep, it’s time once again to offer up a Mazel tov! to Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. The 19 Kids and Counting stars will welcome their 20th child in April, People reports, despite the fact that both Michelle and youngest child Josie experienced complications when Josie was born prematurely in December 2009.

Josie has suffered no long-term effects, Michelle says, and is now “the most energetic, busy little almost 2-year-old.” As for Michelle, she’s “probably in better health now than she was 10 years ago,” explains Jim Bob. “She has been getting on an elliptical for about an hour a day and is very careful of what she eats.” Which leaves only one question: What “J” names are left for the Duggars to use? Offer up your guesses in the comments. (More Jim Bob Duggar stories.)
