A woman from Arkansas has given birth to her 18th child, and the baby girl, just like all her 17 siblings, has been given a name that starts with the letter "J".
The proud mother, Michelle Duggar, delivered her baby by caesarean section on December 18 at the Mercy Medical Centre in Rogers, and later named the baby, weighing 7 pounds, 3 ounces, Jordyn-Grace Makiya Duggar.
"The ultimate Christmas gift from God," the Telegraph quoted Jim Bob Duggar, the father of the 18 children, as saying.
"She's just absolutely beautiful, like her mum and her sisters," he stated.
The Duggars, who now have 10 sons and eight daughters, look forward to adding more to their brood.
"We both would love to have more," he said.
Jim Bob Duggar is 43, a year older than his wife, and their oldest child, Joshua, is 20.
The other Duggar children, in between Joshua and Jordyn-Grace, are Jana, 18, John-David, 18, Jill, 17, Jessa, 16, Jinger, 14, Joseph, 13, Josiah, 12, Joy-Anna, 11, Jeremiah, 9, Jedidiah, 9, Jason, 8, James, 7, Justin, 6, Jackson, 4, Johannah, 3, and Jennifer, 1.
"Our whole family is excited about Jordyn's addition to our family," Jim Bob Duggar said.
"She's just perfect in every way," he added.
