The Duggar family reportedly plans to hold a memorial service on Wednesday. According to the news source, the family named the child posthumously, calling her Jubilee Shalom Duggar.

On December 8, Michelle and Jim went to the doctor to find out the sex of the baby. During this routine check-up, the doctor was unable to find a heartbeat and told the couple that they had miscarried in the second trimester.

"I feel like my heart broke telling my children," Michelle told People. "They have all been so excited about this baby and looking forward to April coming around and having a new little one in our arms. That was the most difficult. The Lord is the giver of life and he can choose when that life is ready to go on and be with Him."
