The super-sized Duggar clan appeared Friday on the “Today” show, where the ever-growing family debuted their latest addition: 12-day old baby Marcus.

The baby boy is the third child for eldest Duggar child Josh and his wife Anna, joining siblings Mackynzie, 3, and Michael, 2, and brings the entire Duggar family to 26 and counting….

“Today” contributor and expectant mom Jenna Wolfe headed to Arkansas to spend some time with the stars of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” and got some parenting advice from the reality TV family (because who’s better to give it? … even if Michelle Duggar offered up the tried-but-true stock answer: “Enjoy it. They grow so fast”).

When Wolfe asked Josh, 25, if he plans to follow his parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s way of life and have as many children as humanly possible, he awkwardly smiled. Watch the Clip Above.

“I enjoy our three,” Josh said. “We’ll see … we’ll take it one at a time. We really enjoy three.”

Then he added that children are “an investment” and “a gift from the Lord.”

The interview also dug up some fun facts on The Duggars’ full house…

The Duggars, By the Numbers:

~ There are roughly 400 hotdogs in the family’s freezer

~ The gang consumes approximately 21 pounds of fruit and 40 tortillas, just at lunch

~ The Duggars do 80 loads of laundry a week.

A special Father’s Day episode of “19 Kids and Counting” airs Sunday at 8/7c on TLC.
