Friends and family rallied around 19 And Counting stars Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar yesterday as the couple mourned the loss of the stillborn daughter.

Hundreds gathered for the ceremony in Springdale, Arkansas, held in honour of little Jubilee Shalom.

The reality stars discovered that their 20th child no longer had a heartbeat during a doctors appointment on December 8.

Michelle, 45, had a natural miscarriage three days later.

After the memorial, a family member shared a heartbreaking picture on Twitter in her memory – before the online post was later deleted.

The photograph shows Michelle reaching out to touch daughter Jubilee’s tiny hand, with the juxtaposition of size deeply moving.

While Michelle obviously displays a fully grown adult hand, Jubilee’s is incredibly tiny, with her palm half the size of her mother’s finger tip.

Amy Duggar, a cousin who frequently appears on their hit TLC reality show tweeted the picture, saying: ‘RIP precious Jubilee Shalom Duggar! Can’t wait to meet you someday, thank you Lord for giving our family peace.’

Heartbreaking: A family member posted this picture of Michelle with her late daughter's tiny hand

At the ceremony, a selection of photos – which some might find distressing – were distributed to guests, with one image showing Jubilee’s tiny feet on Michelle’s hand, with the message: ‘There is no foot too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world.’

Michelle told America’s People magazine: ‘I feel a great sorrow and grief, and yet at the same time I have a peace in my heart.’

‘This is so sad, but I have peace. There are people praying for us and angels surrounding our home, and there was peace in the sorrow and the grief.

Radar Online report that Jubilee weighed just 4oz and measured 6cm when she was stillborn on December 11.

Husband Jim expressed his sadness, but says the child is now in heaven.

He said: ‘We won’t see this child’s life and the phases that we’ve seen for our other children, but we know we will see this child in heaven one day.

‘We are thankful for each child, and we are blessed to have the children we have here and the ones we will meet someday in heaven.’

The couple escaped tragedy when 19th child Josie was born five months premature, however she celebrated her second birthday last Saturday
