Michelle was not due until early March, however she was taken to the hospital earlier this week to have a gallstone removed. The pain from the gallstone caused Michelle to have early contractions, a TLC spokesperson toldPeople, leading to the early arrival of her nineteenth child.
Michelle is resting comfortably and Josie Brooklyn is in stable condition and in the NICU for extended care, a TLC representative told People.
"The most important thing right now is for mom and baby Josie to get as much rest as possible," reads a TLC statement obtained by People.
"The family is grateful for all the prayers and well wishes during their recovery."
