At a routine doctor’s visit, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar received the devastating news that Michelle suffered a miscarriage. During the appointment, the doctor was unable to find a heartbeat and they discovered she lost the baby during the second trimester. The couple, who were expecting their 20th child together had to tell their children of the heartbreaking loss:
“After the appointment, we came back home and told the children. We had just been talking about baby names last night and they were getting excited about naming a boy or a girl. It has been a real sad disappointment.”
“I feel like my heart broke telling my children. They have all been so excited about this baby and looking forward to April coming around and having a new little one in our arms. That was the most difficult. The Lord is the giver of life and he can choose when that life is ready to go on and be with Him.”
The reality family said they will name the baby and plan a funeral once they know if it was a boy or a girl.
