Josh & Anna Duggar Are Expecting Fifth Child — Two Years After His Scandal
Two years ago, Josh Duggar faced two public scandals that greatly affected his family and marriage.
Now he and his wife, Anna, are moving forward and announced they’re expecting their fifth child.
In a blog post on the Duggar Family website, the expectant parents shared the happy news.
“For nearly the last two years, we have quietly worked to save our marriage, focus on our children, and rebuild our lives together as a family,” they wrote.
“Doing so is never easy after a breach of trust,” they continued. “We’ve learned that a life of faith and rebuilding a life together is simply done one day at a time.
“As we continue our journey as a family and rebuild our lives, we are delighted to share with you that we are expecting a new baby boy later this year.”
“Beauty comes from ashes and we cannot wait to see and kiss the face of this sweet new boy!” concluded the couple, who are already mom and dad to Mackynzie, 7, Michael, 5, Marcus, 3, and Meredith, 19 months.
The eldest Duggar and his family have maintained a low profile since he returned home from a faith-based rehab facility.
The 29-year-old checked himself into the center after he publicly confessed to being addicted to pornography and being unfaithful to his wife Anna when it was revealed he had an account on cheating website Ashley Madison.
His confession came two months after a 2006 police report surfaced that revealed the father of four had been accused of inappropriately touching five underage girls, four of whom were his sisters.
Josh finished his time in rehab in March 2016 and has reportedly returned to being a used car salesman, while the rest of his family star on their new show Counting On.
