Josiah Duggar and his wife, Lauren, are finally opening up about the miscarriage they suffered months ago.

Josiah, 22, and Lauren, 19, tied the knot on June 30, 2018. After their wedding, the happy couple went on a honeymoon in Vienna and moved in together.

Fans of the Duggar family spent those first few months wondering when Josiah and Lauren would announce their first pregnancy. Now the couple has taken to social media to tell their fans about the miscarriage they suffered.

On their Instagram account, they shared:

“Many of yall don’t know this, but a couple of months ago we found out we were expecting, however, soon after we miscarried. At first, we kind of wanted to just stay quiet about the news, but knew that since everyone is anticipating for us to announce that were having a baby, we felt like it was time that we told everyone that our first and only baby is in heaven. It is hard to hear when people asks us if we are expecting, when we only recently lost our baby. You can imagine it was devastating to the both of us.

“Our expectations of setting up a baby room, hearing the heart beat, feeling the baby’s first kick in mommys tummy, holding our little one and getting to to see our precious baby were – Shattered. Gone. Right before our eyes. Even though our sweet child is no longer with us, it is such a comfort to know that one day we will get to see our baby in Heaven!

“To the ones who have gone through this, I know your pain. It’s real and terrible. I just want you to know you don’t have to suffer in pain alone. It is not your fault. We greatly appreciate your prayers as we go through this hard time!”

Although Josiah and Lauren have had to deal with this kind of challenge so early on in their marriage, it’s made their relationship even stronger.

In this interview with TLC, Josiah and Lauren describe the devastating night they found out they miscarried. Lauren breaks down in tears as she recalls the pain and heartbreak of experiencing a miscarriage.
