Duggar Parents Open To Having More Children [VIDEO]
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar made their first appearance yesterday since suffering the miscarriage of their 20th child eight weeks ago. The couple sat down with Ann Curry on the Today Show and talked about the heartbreak of losing their baby and the struggles that come along with it.
Their grief over the loss of the baby they later named Jubilee Shalom will be on display in their reality show this season. A preview clip provided to TODAY by TLC shows Michelle and Jim Bob in the doctor’s office for what they thought would be a routine ultrasound. Instead, they found out the baby’s heartbeat had stopped.
Michelle is crying and cradling her belly with her hands, while Jim Bob sits next to her with a look of shock on his face. “The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away,” she prays between sobs. “Blessed be the name of the Lord.” Jim Bob prays with her, then says softly, “Michelle, I’m so sorry.”
Michelle then spoke to TODAYMoms in the greenroom and talked about how they would be open to having more children if God allowed it.
