Anna Duggar remembers baby she miscarried in a touching Instagram post

Anna said her experience of miscarrying a baby was tough but the pain intensified when she compared herself to mother-in-law, Michelle, who gave birth to 19 kids

Most fans know Anna Duggar as a mother of five kids. However, she reminded them that she is, in fact, a mom to six children in her latest Instagram post. The 29-year-old reality star remembered the baby she miscarried many years ago in a touching post. Anna said she was thankful that her baby is in heaven while the rest of her kids found a place in the Duggar household

Anna recently posted a picture of her five kids — Mackynzie Renée, 8, and Meredith, 2, and sons Michael, 6, Marcus, 4, and Mason Garrett, 7 months — assembled around the dining table and munching on cucumbers.

She captioned the picture, "You know you’re a #DuggarMom when your kids eat cucumbers faster than you can prepare them! I’m so thankful for the 5 beautiful children God has given us (+1 in heaven!)" 



Back in 2010, Anna opened up about her miscarriage on the 'Today' show and said the experience was tough but her pain intensified when she compared herself to mother-in-law, Michelle, who gave birth to 19 kids.

Anna said on the NBC show that it was her faith in god that helped her get through her grief and loss. "One thing that really helped was thanking God, thanking him in the good times and thanking him when things don’t go the way we expected them to … If you thank God it really, really releases you and helps you to be able to go on with life," she said.

It seems like Anna, who's stood by her husband Josh despite his infidelity and sexual molestation of his sisters, has strong faith in the Duggar Family. She reminded fans that she's very much part of the tribe even though rumours of a rift between the couple have been reported.

Anna's post, in many ways, put rumors to rest by signalling that she's a proud member of the family even though her marriage with Josh hasn't always been stable.

Since 2015, Anna and Josh's marriage has been hit with scandals. The 30-year-old reality star was found to have sexually molested his sisters and later, he confessed to having a paid account on Ashley Madison. Josh entered rehab for sex addiction soon after the news broke but the scandals led to the termination of TLC's hit reality TV show, '19 Kids and Counting.'

Since then, he hasn't appeared on the show's spin-off series, 'Counting On' either.
