It appears as though Josh Duggar and Anna Duggar have not only worked out their marital issues, but they’ve also been trying for a sixth child. New reports indicate that the former reality television couple is expecting another baby.
Josh Duggar confirmed the news in a new interview with Us Weekly. The pregnancy comes as a bit of a surprise for some critics, as many had assumed that Anna Duggar was ready to pull the plug on her marriage to Josh after it was reported that he sexually abused his sisters back when he was a teen in 2002 and 2003. The scandal made headlines back in 2015, followed by a series of allegations made that claims Josh was unfaithful to his wife.
Well, it looks like it might have taken a few years for Josh and Anna to work out their differences but all seems to be well now. The couple are not only still together, but they are also expanding their family. They welcomed a son a little less than two years ago and are apparently looking to have their own Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar family by adding a sixth child to their clan.
“We couldn’t be happier to share with the world that our family is growing by one this Fall,” the couple told Us in a statement on Friday, April 26. “We continually stand amazed by God’s love, redemption, grace and blessings in our lives. Our entire little family is ecstatic!”
Josh and Anna tied the knot back in 2008. They also have five other children: Mackynzie, 9, Michael, 7, Marcus, 5, Meredith, 3, and Mason, 19 months. The couple celebrated their 10th anniversary back in July of 2018. Anna shared a photo of the couple celebrating their love on her Instagram account. She captioned the pic with, “The past 10 years have been a wonderful adventure. So thankful for God’s redeeming grace and His blessings to us along the way, especially our 5 M’s!”

The past 10 years have been a wonderful adventure. So thankful for God’s redeeming grace and His blessings to us along the way, especially our 5 M’s! #littleduggars
Even though all seems to be well and forgiven between Josh and Anna, that doesn’t seem to be the case for Josh and the Duggar family’s fans and critics. The Duggars have made a point to keep Josh out of the limelight these last few years, and especially after the backlash they received from his multiple and highly-publicized scandals. Even though many of his Duggar siblings have starred in their own spin-off shows, Josh and Anna Duggar have been kept out of the spotlight and instead have been documenting their family life and adventures on social media.
