Arkansas mom delivers 18th child

ROGERS, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas woman has given birth to her 18th child.

Michelle Duggar delivered the baby girl by Caesarean section Thursday at Mercy Medical Center in Rogers. The baby, named Jordyn, weighed 7 pounds 3 ounces and was 20 inches long, according to Chris Finnegan of TLC network, which broadcasts a weekly show about the Michelle and her husband Jim Bob and all the Duggar children.

Finnegan said the mother was tired but resting after the birth of her latest child.

The show is called "Seventeen and Counting." Finnegan said the name would be updated to account for the latest addition to the family. He said TLC also will air a show Monday on the baby's delivery.
