Michelle Duggar, star of TLC's 18 Kids and Counting, was rushed to an Arkansas hospital over the weekend with a gallbladder problem -- but her pregnancy with Baby No. 19, not due until spring, wasn't the reason for her dash to the doctor.
"This weekend, Michelle Duggar was admitted to an Arkansas hospital due to gallbladder issues," says a network rep. "The pain from a gallstone was generating some contractions. Just to be safe, she was airlifted a Little Rock, Ark., hospital, so that in the unlikely event that she had to be delivered early, she would be close to a NICU center. Though there were some fears that the baby was in trouble initially, it soon was discovered to be solely the gallstone causing the discomfort. Michelle is resting comfortably, and the baby is doing fine."
