Jill Duggar reveals she was pregnant with third child but secretly suffered a miscarriage and shares unborn baby's name

JILL Duggar revealed she suffered a miscarriage after finding out she was expecting her third baby with husband Derick Dillard.

The Counting On couple – who are parents to sons Israel, six, and Samuel, four – shared that they were going to name their third child River Bliss Dillard.


Jill shared the heartbreaking news to fans in an emotional letter on her family blog.

“We recently found out that we were expecting our third baby,” the post began. “We were all thrilled!” 

She continued: “It was fun to see so much joy in the boys’ faces as we shared the news with them. 

“They were full of questions and so excited as we talked about the pregnancy and how they would get to be involved along the way and after baby was born. 

“However, a few days later we started miscarrying.”

The pair picked out the name because of the various meanings behind it, including “tranquil.”

They added that “rivers are often a serene, beautiful escape in nature.”

Jill continued in the emotional blog: “Our baby doesn’t get to live here with us on earth, but is forever with the source of the river of life, in the presence of the Lord!

“And we chose Bliss for a middle name because our baby is living in perfect bliss with the Lord and was such a gift that brought immense joy and happiness to us even though only with us here on earth for a short time.”

Along with the letter, Jill and Derick shared a video of themselves finding out she was pregnant and telling their two sons the news.

The family was all smiles and joy over the baby news, until near the end of the clip when Jill found out she was miscarrying.

The TV personality took a solemn selfie and shared the heartbreaking loss with fans and wrote a touching note to River Bliss Dillard.

The video ended on a close-up of Jill and Derick sitting side by side, holding each other’s hands during this difficult time.
