    Reality star Michelle Duggar and her family suffered a miscarriage today. On Thursday, she and husband Bob Duggar were at a routine checkup and looking forward to discovering the sex of their 20th child. “After the appointment, we came back home and told the children,” says Michelle, 45. “We had just been talking about baby names last night and they were getting excited about naming a boy or a girl. It has been a real sad disappointment.” Michelle had previously suffered a miscarriage in the 1980s. The Duggars last suffered a “medical ordeal” in December 2009 when their daughter, Josie Brooklyn, was born.
