In the new issue of Closer Weekly, "Duck Dynasty" stars Jase and Missy Robertson open up about a very personal tragedy.
Missy Robertson told Closer that at age 30, she suffered a miscarriage in 2002, after giving birth to the couple's two 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,” she said.
She continued to explain 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," she said.
The Robertsons told Closer Weekly they coped with the tragedy through “a lot of prayer and a lot of family."
Three months after the miscarriage, Missy became pregnant again with their daughter Mia, now age 11.
