DUGGAR MOM WILLING TO DIE

"I WANT another child and I'm not afraid to die to have one!"

That's what MICHELLE DUGGAR, the mother of 19 children, has told friends and family members about her life-threatening quest for Baby No. 20.

Michelle, 43, developed preeclampsia - or pregnancy-induced high blood pressure - while she was pregnant with No. 19, daughter Josie.

As a result, Josie had to be delivered prematurely on Dec. 10 of last year - at just 25 weeks!

Michelle and her husband Jim Bob, 45, are devout Christians who do not believe in using contraception.

And the stars of TLC's reality show 19 Kids & Counting want MORE children - even though they know the next pregnancy could kill her, say close pals.

"Michelle said she would gladly give her life to bring another child into the world," said a source close to the family.
