Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, stars of the reality TV show "19 Kids and Counting," spoke to The Christian Post on Jan. 21, 2014, at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden in Upper Marlborough, Md. |

"19 Kids & Counting" star Michelle Duggar offered advice about motherhood for her two married daughters, Jill and Jessa, in a new blog post on Monday.

"Well, I think it'll probably be the same advice I give to any other new mom, except for the fact that I will be saying, 'Now, if you need a babysitter, you know grandma is just down the road, and I'd be so happy to help you whenever you need a date night with your sweetie!'" Michelle wrote.

As the mother of 19 children, and a grandmother of three, Michelle has a lot of experience and advice to offer her daughters. Jill and husband Derick are expecting their first child, a son, in March. Jessa and Ben are newlyweds and have taken the same vow as the rest of their family to accept any and all children God blesses them with. Rumors have circulated that Jessa could become pregnant on her honeymoon, the same as Jill.

Michelle went on to explain that date nights are essential to having a successful, strong marriage and relationship with one's partner. She and husband Jim Bob still go on date nights to keep their relationship strong, and the couple has been married for 30 years.

"It's important to keep that focus on building and strengthening your marriage relationship, it reminds them that their parents love each other and that their relationship is a top priority in the family," Michelle added. "When they see mom and dad are making it a priority to love each other and focus on their relationship, it reminds them that their parents love each other and that their relationship is a top priority in the family."

"19 Kids and Counting" airs on TLC. The upcoming season will focus on Jessa and Ben's relationship, engagement, and marriage. The couple is currently on honeymoon but will return to Arkansas to settle into their new home.
