She’s sharing a word of encouragement. OutDaughtered star Danielle Busby opened up about her struggle to get pregnant in a heartfelt new message shared to her Instagram page on Wednesday, October 2. The TLC alum admitted that she felt so many emotions while trying to conceive with her husband, Adam Busby, and it was an extremely difficult experience to go through.

“One of my favorite pictures! Our first photoshoot with all six of our girlies 💕 This photo reminds me daily to never give up HOPE,” the reality star, 35, began her caption. “For the days when I was so lost and in pain of not being able to have children … to know a house full of six girls. I could have never imagined this life. It’s hard but so rewarding!”

As fans may recall, Danielle and Adam, 37, tried to start a family shortly after they got married in 2006. She documented their journey to parenthood on her blog and even kept it real during their tough times. Danielle previously admitted that she tried to get pregnant for six months before reaching out to medical professionals for help.

After being unsuccessful, they turned to intrauterine insemination (IUI) and on their sixth round, the couple discovered she was expecting their first child.
