Last month, the Duggar family, stars of TLC’s reality show 19 Kids and Counting, announced matriarch Michelle Duggar was pregnant with her 20th child. Today now reports she has suffered a miscarriage in her second trimester.
“Earlier today at a routine doctor's appointment, Michelle and I received the sad news that we lost the baby,” Jim Bob Duggar tells the news show in a statement. “We are grateful for all the thoughts and prayers, but ask for privacy during this difficult time.”

“The Lord is the giver of life and He can choose when that life is ready to go on and be with Him,” Michelle Duggar tells People.
