This weekend, Duggar will join her husband and their 17 children to celebrate Mother's Day with brunch at a hotel in downtown Little Rock. Their youngest child, Jennifer, is 9 months old.

No. 19 caught Michelle Duggar by surprise. The 42-year-old mom of 18 noticed that she wasn't losing weight, even though she and husband Jim Bob were on Weight Watchers, and her youngest child, 8-month-old Jordyn-Grace, was fussing while nursing. In the past, she found a fussy infant meant a change in breast milk that came with pregnancy. (AP Photo/ Beth Hall, File)

"I know it's going to change our lives dramatically," she told attendees at the same event about what life will be like with a child. "It's going to be huge. [Ben and I] were just talking logistics of travel. Right now, we packed all of our stuff in a little suitcase for this weekend trip, and I was like, man, when you have a baby! Our friends have been warning us, 'You're going to have car seats and strollers and a huge bag for all the baby stuff -- diapers, and whatever, extra change of clothes in case something happens.'"

This is the sixth grandchild for Michelle and Bob Duggar, who rose to fame with their TLC reality show, the since-cancelled19 Kids and Counting. The two are already grandparents to son Josh Duggar's four children with wife Anna -- Mackynzie Renee, Michael James, Marcus Anthony and Meredith Grace -- and daughter Jessa (Duggar) Dillard's son with husband Derick, Israel David.
