Jill Duggar supported by sisters Joy-Anna, Jinger and Jessa after suffering devastating miscarriage with third child

JILL Duggar was supported by her sisters Joy-Anna, Jinger and Jessa after revealing her devastating miscarriage.

The Counting On alum, 31, shared on Monday that she and husband Derick Dillard lost their third child.

Jill shared a heartbreaking video about her miscarriage on Instagram and received plenty of support in the comments.

Joy-Anna wrote: "River Bliss was so loved. I love you Jill. My heart breaks for y'all. I'm so so sorry you are having to go through this. Praying for you all."

Jessa added: "Love you so much and my heart breaks for you."

Jinger posted: "Jill my heart aches for you all. Love you so much and praying for you, sis!"

Their cousin Amy also sent her well wishes, writing: "Love you so much and your sweet family. River would have been beautiful. Wrapping you in prayers."

Jill and Derick– who are parents to sons Israel, six, and Samuel, four – had been planning to name their third child River Bliss Dillard.

She wrote in an emotional letter on her family blog: “We recently found out that we were expecting our third baby. We were all thrilled!

“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 – who have distanced themselves from Jill's parents Jim Bob and Michelle – 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.
