Josie Duggar Is the Star of the Show
, , , ,

She may be a tiny thing — she weighed only 1 pound, 6 ounces at birth — but Josie Brooklyn Duggar is already the star of the show. The newest Duggar arrived December 10th, more than three months earlier than her scheduled due date. Her short life has already been eventful: when she was only eight days old, she was moved to Arkansas Children’s Hospital’s intensive care unit after she perforated her bowel. As that facility doesn’t allow children younger than 18 years in the ICU, most of the other 18 Duggar children have been checking in via video taken on dad Jim Bob Duggar‘s phone.

The band, along with other stars, will cover REM’s “Everybody Hurts.” Once that’s wrapped, Filan will no doubt be back home to spend time with little Shane and his older siblings, Patrick Michael (16 months) and Nicole Rose (4.5 years).

Yes, baby number three is on the way for the General Hospital actress and her husband, Michael Saucedo.
