Duggar Baby News: Michelle Asks For Help with Baby Name, Anna Duggar Gives Birth

On last night’s episode of 18 Kids and Counting, the first Duggar grandchild entered the world. Mackynzie Renee Dugar was born on Thursday, August 18th and is the first grandchild of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s eldest son Josh and his wife of one year, Anna. Josh and Anna may or may not to be set to follow in the elder generations footsteps; although both have set that they would be happy to have a big family, both having been raised in one, on the show, they have also said that they’re “not looking to set any records” and would be happy with “just one or two”. They have also yet to confirm or deny if all of their children will receive “M” names, following in another tradition of the Duggar family who named all their children beginning with the letter “J”.

Michelle Duggar, baby Mackynzie’s grandmother, is also pregnant with her 19th child who should be approximately 5 months younger than his/her niece. This week, via the TLC website, Michelle Duggar requested suggestions from fans both both boy and girl names for the 19th Duggar child.

It’s all coming up baby in the Duggar family this week!
