Anna first spoke out about the miscarriage back in 2010 when she appeared on the TODAY Show.

"It was very hard to go through the excitement of finding out we were expecting a little one and then losing it," Duggar told Meredith Vieira at the time.

"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," Anna continued. "If you thank God it really, really releases you and helps you to be able to go on with life."

Josh Duggar

Months ago Anna and Josh celebrated 10 years of marriage. As readers know, Anna's marriage to the Duggar's oldest child hasn't been easy.

In 2015, Josh's sexual molestation scandal was revealed and he admitted to adultery. Recently, Anna and her husband came under fire for happily celebrating Josh's birthday earlier this month - a milestone fans didn't think was worthy of a celebration.

Anna has found solace in her and Josh's legacy, however. In the same Instagram post about all of her children, she took pride in sharing with fans that she's "mommy" to half of Michelle and Jim Bob's 10 grandchildren so far.

"And the only grand-daughters!" Anna happily continued.

Most recently, Joy-Anna, 20, married to Austin Forsyth, 24, gave birth to a baby boy named Gideon.
