Duggars Open Up About Miscarriage By Sharing Video Clips From 19 Kids and Counting (Video)

By Monica Bielanko |

The couple talks about Michelle's miscarriage with Ann Curry.

In their first public appearance together since the loss of their baby, whom they named Jubilee Shalom, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar told Ann Curry on Today that they are still open to more children.

As Rebecca Dube reports, despite being devastated when she suffered a miscarriage at 19 weeks with her 20th child, TLC reality-show star and mother of 19 Michelle Duggar says she’d like to have more children if she’s able. “We would be open to more if God saw fit to bless us with more… I would do it again.” Michelle said in a green-room interview with TODAY Moms.

The Duggars say if another pregnancy doesn’t happen, they are enjoying being grandparents. Their oldest son, Josh, has two children with his wife Anna.

As TODAY reports, the moment Michelle and Jim Bob learn they lost the baby will be featured on their reality show, 19 Kids And Counting.

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.”
