Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar are sitting down with Fox News journalist Megyn Kelly on Wednesday in their first interview since a 2006 police report surfaced on May 20 which alleged that their eldest son, Josh, had molested five underage girls as a teen.

In a promo for the interview, Michelle, 48, says that there was “so much grief in our hearts” when their son approached them to confess what he had done. “I think, as parents, we felt, ‘We’re failures.’ ”

Added the 19 Kids and Counting star: “We’ve tried to raise our kids to do what’s right – to know what’s right – and yet one of our children made some really bad choices and I think, as a parent, just … we were devastated.”

In a press release sent by Fox, the network states that Kelly will also be interviewing Jessa Seewald and Jill Dillard and identifies them as two of Josh’s victims.

“Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret,” Josh, now 27, told PEOPLE in a statement the day after the scandal broke. “I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling.”

Josh’s wife, Anna – who is expecting their fourth child this summer – likened his actions to “past teenage mistakes,” but that he had “received the help needed to change the direction of his life and to do what is right.”
