Grace’s birth came after a difficult pregnancy that found Burnett in the hospital on several occasions. Duggar revealed in October that his wife was suffering from pregnancy hyperemesis, which is extreme morning sickness.
Duggar said it had hit his wife hard and that she had been “broken down for probably seven weeks”. In addition to several emergency department visits for dehydration, Burnett was also admitted to hospital on several occasions. The 30-year-old said his wife could not eat or drink anything, and that she was also intravenously in the hospital and at home.
