“19 Kids and Counting” Michelle Dugger Miscarries 20th Baby: Family Plans Funeral

Once I had my twins, I couldn’t keep up with how many babies they were having! However, I was deeply saddened to hear the news of the recent lost experienced by the “19 Kids and Counting” celebrity family, the Duggars. This would have been their twentieth child!

Sad news for Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, stars of the TLC reality show “19 Kids and Counting.” Michelle has had a miscarriage. The child would have been their 20th.

“We rest in knowing that even though our child has departed this life that we will one day see each other again in heaven,” the Duggars wrote on the family website.

According to Jim Bob, the news of the loss of the baby came during a routine doctor’s appointment. “Michelle is resting comfortably at home with the support of the entire family,” the Duggar patriarch said in a statement.

The Duggars say they plan to have a funeral service and to give the child a name once they learn what its sex would have been, according to a report in People.

“I feel like my heart broke telling my children,” Michelle told the magazine. “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.”

The couple had announced they were expecting their 20th child on the “Today” show in November. This was the Duggars’ second miscarriage. The first came during Michelle’s second pregnancy.

The couple’s 19th child was born three months premature in December 2009. The baby spent nearly four months in the hospital before going home in April 2010, only to be readmitted two days later. The child, Josie Brooklyn Duggar, is now doing fine.

In an interview with Radar Online in May, Michelle said, “We would love more!… I’m 43 almost 44 this September, I know that my mommy years are probably numbered and I don’t know how many more children God will see fit to give me.”

The couple said at that time they were considering adopting.

They love having babies!!! Have you ever seen the show? Do you think they should stop or go for #20 after all?? You may comment below.

    I know God said be fruitful and multiply, but come on now. There comes a point where you have
    to think about the health of the baby as well as the mother’s health. She has put her body
    through quite a bit and therefore I feel this is a way of her body telling her that she needs to
    stop! I am not one to rain on anyone’s parade just because they like to have babies, just as
    long as they are able to take care of them and love them is all that matters. The older she gets
    the greater the risk is of having a baby with some kind of birth defects and who wants their
    baby to have to suffer for the rest of their lives.
