The Duggars were shocked and devastated to hear about the miscarriage of their 20th child on Dec. 8.  They announced , however, that they will still name the baby.

“The kids are mothering me now,” The 19 Kids and Counting star told People about her recovery. “Jill ( her 20 year-old daughter) just brought me some food and they are taking good care of me.”

This isn’t the first time the family has had to experience this terrible tragedy. When Michelle Duggar became pregnant for the second time, after the birth of her first son, Joshua, she suffered a miscarriage in the very early stages of her pregnancy. Her and husband Jim Bob named that baby,  Caleb.

“We will name this child and will know that we will see those children again someday in heaven,” she said.

We wish the Duggar family the best while they are recovering from their loss during this difficult time.
