An American Long Family Greets the 19th Child

A brave U.S. couple have just had an addition to the family. Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar welcomed a baby girl, Josie Brooklyn, on Thursday.

Michelle has been in the hospital to deal with a gallstone attack, when suddenly, she gets rushed into surgery. 

The premature child,  Josie Brooklyn -- who weighed 1 lb., 6 oz. -- was born at 6:27 p.m. at University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Arkansas.

Michelle is resting comfortably and the baby is "stable" -- although she's in the neonatal intensive-care unit, the rep said.

"The most important thing right now is for Mom and baby Josie to get as much rest as possible," added the rep. "The family is grateful for all the prayers and well wishes during their recovery."

In September, Michelle and Jim Bob -- who have 18 children and one grandchild -- announced that they are expecting baby No. 19.

The US Magazine has contributed to the report.
