And Baby Makes 19!

The Duggar family, who star in the TLC show 18 Kids and Counting, just keeps getting bigger! The family recently announced that mom Michelle, 42, is pregnant with baby #19.

Yes, you read that right, 19!

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, who make their home in Tonitown, Arkansas, were anticipating the arrival of their first grandchild.  But surprises were in store, as the couple learned that granddaughter, Mackynzie, who’s expected to arrive October 18, will have an aunt or uncle arrive about five months after her, on March 18, 2010!

“I’m just thankful,” Michelle wrote on her TLC blog. “I don’t take this experience for granted, ever. I cherish that I have the time and ability to play with my children and be active for them.”

The family has already created a list of boys and girls names that start with the letter J to make sure the newest addition fits in with the rest of the family:

Josh, 21 (who with wife Anna is expecting Mackynzie)

Jana and John-David, 19 (and twins)

Jill, 18

Jessa, 16

Jinger, 15

Joseph, 14

Josiah, 13

Joy-Anna, 11

Jedidiah and Jeremiah, 10 (more twins!)

Jason, 9

James, 8

Justin, 6

Jackson, 5

Johanna, 3

Jennifer, 2

Jordyn-Grace, 8 months

What “J” name would you recommend for Duggar baby #19?

Girls, Girls, Girls: All New and All Fun for Jerry O’Connell

Jerry O'Connell and Rebecca Romijin

After growing up in an all-boy family, Jerry O’Connell confesses in a recent PEOPLE interview that he initially thought putting daughters Charlie Tamara Tulip and Dolly Rebecca Rose in cute dresses was impractical. “They’re going to poop and throw up in it anyway.”

Now, however, O’Connell has come to the dark side. In addition to dressing them up, the actor also styles their hair (pig-tails and barretts) and lives to make his babies laugh. “There’s no better feeling than making your little girls laugh,” he said.

O’Connell’s been staying home with the eight-month-old fraternal twins while wife Rebecca Romijn is working on her ABC show Eastwick. The couple has committed to having one parent with the girls at all times.

While O’Connell is enjoying fatherhood, the couple has decided that two is enough!

Chyler Leigh On Baby #3

First, there was Noah.

Earlier this year, Chyler Leigh — who plays Dr. Lexie Grey on the popular ABC show — and husband Nathan West welcomed the third addition to their brood: daughter Anniston Kae, who was weighed in on May 7th at 7 pounds, 1 ounce.

They’ve had a few years to get adjusted to parenthood — Noah is 5 1/2, and Taelyn is 2 1/2 — and Leigh says things have gotten easier, in a sense, as the couple has expanded their family. “…once you get used to multiples you figure out how to put things together quicker,” she told PEOPLE in a recent interview.
