(Newser) – After 19 kids, the Duggars aren't calling it quits. "We would be open to more if God saw fit to bless us with more," Michelle Duggar tells Today in her first interview after a miscarriage in December. Even after the "devastating" experience, "I would do it again," she says. "We realize our sweet little Jubilee is with the Lord, and we will see her again someday." Meanwhile, they're enjoying being grandparents to two.

The story of the miscarriage will be part of this season's 19 Kids and Counting. A clip from the TLC program shows the moment the couple learned of the miscarriage; they'd gone to the doctor for a regular ultrasound. Michelle cries as the two pray together. "The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away," she says. An earlier miscarriage during her second pregnancy prompted the couple to drop birth control, letting God determine the size of their family, MSNBC notes.
