"Such a precious little life! Annabell is so missed. We love you so much Joy and Austin!" Anna Duggar wrote in the comments.
The Counting On star announced that she miscarried their daughter on Wednesday, July 3.
The TLC star explained that the doctor couldn't find a heartbeat when they went in for their 20-week ultrasound and gender reveal. They had already named their baby Annabell Elise.
"Annabell means 'God has favored me', and Elise means 'God satisfies.' What a precious thing to know that when our daughter opened her eyes, the first thing she saw was the face of Jesus," Joy-Anna revealed.
The couple announced they were expecting their second child on May 1, 2019. They are also parents to son Gideon, 16 months.
