Compared to the Duggars, the Gosselin and Suleman households seem small: The Arkansas reality TV family, headed by dad Jim Bob and mom Michelle, told The Today Show’s Meredith Vieira on Tuesday they are expecting their 19th child.

The conservative Christian family follows Quiverfull, a movement that places added weight on the bible's demands to be fruitful and multiply.

In an interesting twist, the couple's eldest child, Josh is about to become a daddy himself, as him and his wife Anna are expecting the family's first grandchild, a girl named Mackenzie, next month.

“My sister and my mother were having babies at the same time, so I have nieces and nephews older than me,” 42-year-old mom Michelle, who came from a large family herself, said. “It was a great time because we really have close relationships with my nieces and nephews.”
