Michelle, 55, and Jim Bob, 56, had asked their kids to vote and pick the baby’s name.

Redditors ended up poking fun at the Baby Ballot Names when they saw the snapshot.
One Redditor said: “I remember this episode. I think they had each kid, even the little kids, pick a name. It was pretty lighthearted and I think they put all of them in.”
Another Redditor wrote: “This makes me feel better that it wasn’t the parents who gave the names to choose from.”
A third Redditor added: “At this point, I kinda wished they used it. Just incredible really.”
A fourth person added: “Jichelle is bad. January is bad. I could EVEN give them Jimelle if it was Jamel and for a boy.”
A commentator pointed out: “It always freaks me out when that list gets shared because my first name is on the first name list. I coulda been a Duggar!”
This is not the first time that footage from 19 Kids & Counting has resurfaced online.
The trailer featured glimpses of the Duggar family life that many fans missed out on.
In the clip, Jessa Duggar, 29, is pregnant with with her first child, while Josh’s wife, Anna, is expecting her fourth.
Anna said in the trailer: “It can be a challenge keeping up with three kids and I know we’re about to add a fourth one, so it’s just like, ‘Oh boy!”
The snapshot also included Jana’s siblings Josie, 12, Jordyn-Grace, now 13, Johannah, 16, and Jennifer, 14.
On one side, Michelle was sitting with Josie and Jordyn-Grace.
They appeared to be almost done with their plates when the photo was taken.
Michelle seemed to be enjoying herself as she smiled for the camera.
Jana captioned the post: “Lunch and shopping with Mom and some of the girls today!” along with a shopping bag emoji.
It is unclear if Michelle had gone shopping with Jana – who was trying on glasses in another snap – and her sisters or if she was only there for lunch.
