How many children is too many?
One is a blessing, two is pretty standard, three is great, four is the point where you need a new house and car to fit them all in and any more beyond that is pretty much considered crazy territory these days.
That's why it's hard to believe this couple is currently trying for their 20th child. And the saddest part is that this woman is risking her life to do so.
Meet the Duggars. They are an American couple with a successful reality TV show - called "19 Kids And Counting" - that gives viewers a glimpse of their crazy life. They have lots of kids and love it. Each child is a gift from God and they have no plans to stop. That's why they've decided to add to their brood, if you can even call it that. And they know their decision is controversial.
"We are not expecting right now," Michelle Duggar told the incredulous public, "I would be so grateful if the Lord blessed us with another one. We're trying at this point and we shall see if that is a possibility."
Michelle Duggar is 47 years old and her 19th pregnancy was filled with complications and health challenges for both mother and child. She was lucky to get through it and was even more lucky her baby Josie who was born premature at 25 weeks survived.
We have no doubt they can handle 20 children. Their TLC show 19 Kids and Counting is still going strong and they make it look fun, and easy. The family is conservative Christians who don't believe in contraception, favour home-schooling and spend as little time on the internet or watching TV as possible. They believe that every child is a blessing from God and should be welcomed.
However here are some fun facts just so you grasp the enormity of their decision to try for a 20th child:
