Duggars struggle with tragic baby ordeal
Duggars struggle with tragic baby ordeal, The Duggars Get Terrible News on '19 Kids & Counting' [Video], Michelle and Jim Bob call their 19 kids together to deliver terrible news about their unborn's health. Thanks to TLC's "19 Kids & Counting," we've shared many happy moments with the ever-growing Duggar family. Devastating News: Michelle and Jim Bob must deliver some heartbreaking news to their children.
But on last night's spring finale, we were witness to an unspeakably tragic moment as well, as parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar received devastating news. Michelle went to the doctor to get an ultrasound for what would be her 20th child -- and learned that the baby had no heartbeat. Then she and Jim Bob had to go home and break the news to their family.
In the clip below, we see Michelle and Jim Bob gather their kids together and try to find the best way to tell them what's happened. You can't help but feel for the parents as they do their best to hold in their emotions, and the kids' excitement about the baby ("Is it a girl or a boy?") makes the scene all the more heart-wrenching.
Later in the episode, the Duggars honored their unborn child by holding a touching memorial service for the baby. They even gave her a name: Jubilee Shalom.
