Josie Duggar, baby No. 19 for the stars of 19 Kids and Counting, is one step closer to heading home.

"Michelle and I are very happy to report that little Josie is being released from the hospital today," Jim Bob Duggar said in a statement. "And while we have plenty of practice bringing babies home, this time is very different. To be on the safe side, we'll stay nearby in Little Rock for the short term, with the entire family returning home to Springdale in the near future."

Make that 19 kids and counting for Duggar parents

Josie arrived three months premature on December 12 and weighed in at just 1 pound, 6 ounces. She was born via emergency cesarean section after complications arose with Michelle's gallbladder.

TLC will televise Josie's homecoming on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 9, at 8/7c.
