In an interview with Closer Weekly, Duck Dynasty‘s Missy Robertson reveals she suffered a miscarriage before having daughter Mia.
Missy Robertson told the publication that at age 30 she suffered a miscarriage in 2002, after giving birth to her sons, Reed (now 18) and Cole (now 16).
“I was about eight to 10 weeks along when I miscarried, just enough time to be excited about it and start telling everyone,” the reality star said.
Missy Robertson explained the heartbreaking procedure: “I’d heard of tubal pregnancies for years, but didn’t really understand the mental anguish of actually having to go in and have someone remove what could’ve been your child. It was extremely difficult, and there was a lot of pain and bleeding.”
Jase and Missy Robertson told Closer Weekly they coped with the tragedy through “a lot of prayer and a lot of family.”
Three months after the miscarriage, Missy Robertson became pregnant again with their daughter Mia, now age 11.
