The Duggar family received some devastating news on Thursday, when Michelle suffered a miscarriage with her 20th pregnancy, her husband Jim Bob told Us Weekly.
The 19 Kids and Counting star said in a statement:
- "Earlier today at a routine doctor's appointment, Michelle and I received the sad news that we lost the baby. Michelle is resting comfortably at home with the support of the entire family. We are grateful for all the thoughts and prayers, but ask for privacy during this difficult time."
The Duggar's 20th child was due to be born in April, and would have joined siblings: Joshua, 23, twins Jana and John-David, 21; Jill, 20; Jessa, 19; Jinger, 17; Joseph, 16; Josiah, 15; Joy-Anna, 14; twins Jedidiah and Jeremiah, 12; Jason, 11; James, 10; Justin, 8; Jackson, 7; Johanna, 6; Jennifer, 4; Jordyn, 3, and Josie, almost 2.
No doubt the Duggars, who have openly expressed their wanting more children, will try to get pregnant again soon.
