“We are due in April and just thrilled,” said Michelle.
The news quickly became a conversation topic online, commenters took to The Hollywood Reporter‘s website, Facebook and Twitter (the term “Michelle Duggar” became a trending topic in the U.S.) to share their thoughts.

“I think they are a wonderful family – they are doing a great job raising loving, responsible children – which the world needs more of to balance the mindless fatherless children of today who are destroying our society,” said another THR.com reader QueenOfcups, adding, “If more good parents had children this word would be in a better place.”
Tammy Lanius shared her enthusiasm, commenting on THR‘s story, “Congrats to the Duggars. I am so happy for your family! God is Good ALL THE TIME!”
Dormiens Draco made a Harry Potter reference, tweeting, “Michelle Duggar is expecting her 20th kid. I have concluded that they are the more extreme muggle version of the Weasley family.”

While Charles Oliver opined on Facebook, “It’s not my job to tell someone how many kids they can have, but I gotta believe it’s impossible to give each one the true love and attention it needs when you reach a number like that. As for my personal opinion, disgusting!”
And JBreezy The Poet tweeted, “Michelle Duggar had 20 kids and she gets a TV show… My homegirl Keisha had 6 kids and all she got was food stamps.”
