Watch Jessa & Jill Duggar's Emotional Reactions to Josh Duggar Scandals in New TLC Teaser

Check out a new promo for the upcoming TLC special "Jill & Jessa: Counting On," which focuses on how shocked Jill and Jessa were after learning about their brother Josh Duggar's sex scandals.


Jessa, 22, opens up the clip, saying, "Here I am, most joyful time in my life — newlywed, baby on the way — and then...” She recalls, "We were devastated. Like, we couldn't believe it. You have to wonder, like, 'How did this happen?'"

Jill adds, while tearing up, "You're angry and hurt and all those emotions all mixed together. I've cried a lot of tears. I still do. I don't know, I'm hurting."

Though the two were shocked like the rest of the world, they were still able to move on from the scandal. Jessa shares, "Definitely with all the difficulties that my family has walked through, there's still a lot of exciting milestones ahead. Ben [Seewald] and I are very excited to welcome our first little one into the world very soon."

Jill is also looking in a positive direction. "We will come out of this fire stronger as a family unit."

"Jill & Jessa: Counting On" is set to premiere in December on TLC.
