Josh Duggar and his wife Anna are rumored to be pregnant with baby number five, less than a year after their daughter Meredith Grace was born! According to a Duggar insider, Anna became pregnant during a Christmas visit to Josh Duggar in his faith-based rehab facility in Rockford, Illinois.
The family is, of course, overjoyed with the news, and the source confided that “Anna announced that she thinks she is pregnant again” to the rest of Josh Duggar’s family, reports Radar Online. The devout Christian wife has made it clear that she has no plans to leave Josh anytime soon, even though Josh cheated on her and currently is in the midst of a $500,000 lawsuit with adult film star Danica Dillon.
Anna “believes the baby is a sign that God has forgiven Josh for his many sins,” and continues to “stand by her husband” through thick and thin. During an episode of Jill And Jessa: Counting On, Josh Duggar’s wife confirmed that her “prayer and my heart’s desire is for our marriage to be restored,” and for things to go back to normal.
After confessing to a pornography addiction and to cheating on his wife using two accounts with the infidelity website Ashley Madison, Josh Duggar was immediately shipped off to a Christian faith-based rehab center, Reformers Unanimous, to receive treatment and wait out the media storm. The rules at Reformers Unanimous are very strict, with 4 a.m. wake-up calls and required prayer meetings.
Josh had to work up to the privilege of seeing his wife, and it’s possible by getting Anna Duggar pregnant, he violated the terms of his stay! Last month, rumors surfaced that Josh left rehab suddenly after only staying four of the required six months. Is it possible he was kicked out for having sex with his own wife?
Mike Huckabee recently spoke out again about the Josh Duggar scandals, emphatically defending the Duggar family during a Clinton, Iowa, campaign stop. A reporter asked why Huckabee counted the Duggar family among his friends. The politician has come under fire repeatedly since last June for publicly affiliating himself with the Josh Duggar family, and is known to be good friends with Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.
Quite angered by the question, Huckabee replied, telling the reporter that she “cannot abuse, which is what you’re doing, the reputation of a godly family who had been through hell because a son of theirs.” The Republican candidate for president cautioned the media that Josh is merely “one of their many children,” and although the reality star “did something evil and sinful,” Huckabee is definitely not “backing up and supporting” Josh Duggar.
Huckabee also threatened to throw the reporter out of the room, ending the conversation by confirming that he supports the Duggar family, and his real problem was with the media who “were maliciously and savagely abused not just by their brother,” but by tabloid media who “exploited [Jill and Jessa Duggar] for their own purpose without regard for what it was doing to those young ladies.”
The Republican candidate also confirmed that he “never supported anything that happened to those daughters.”
After the news broke that Josh Duggar molested several young girls when he was underage, a fact the Duggar family kept from their fans, Mike Huckabee appeared on several news programs in support of the famous family. In June 2015, Mike Huckabee appeared on Fox News with Megyn Kelly, telling the host that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar should be praised for handling the situation when Josh was younger, explaining the family “took many, many steps that many parents don’t take under similar circumstances.”
The Duggar family has reportedly begun filming a new show with TLC, although it’s not clear whether Josh Duggar will be part of it.
