Josh Duggar, along with his wife, Anna have been busy trying to work their way back into the “spotlight” with their own family and everything that has taken place in the last several months – this process has been going on for what seems like forever, but it’s basically just most of this year. It was bad enough that Josh single handedly ruined his families first ever reality TV show, “19 Kids and Counting” by giving the show’s producers no choice but to cancel it. This took place after the allegations concerning the molestation that Josh was apparently involved in – not to mention the fact that he signed up for and became a member on the site referred to as “Ashley Madison” for his um, sexual needs, shall we say?! The family wasn’t sure what to do with Josh – however, even though he did a stint in rehab, it was only to keep him out of the Duggar spotlight and away from their reality TV show, “Counting On.” The embarrassment was killing the families reputation so they made sure that Josh stayed out of the public eye for almost a year. Josh was also banned from the families “spin-off” TV show, “Jill & Jessa: Counting On” – however, he was seen in a few photos via his families various sites on social media.
But, Josh Duggar’s mom and dad, JB and Michelle began talking about their oldest son on social media – which has taken place in the last few months. At first they were only posting certain photos, which also included Josh somewhere among the huge amount of guests who were gathered in their house, however, they decided to try their luck even more by posting all kinds of pictures when celebrating Josh’s birthday – and of course, the big announcement, stating that Anna Duggar, his wife is expecting their fifth child, which could been seen on their Facebook site and the families personal blog.
“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,” Josh and Anna Duggar wrote. “Doing so is never easy after a breach of trust. 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!”
There’s a reason why Josh and Anna’s children spend a lot of time over at the Duggar compound where almost every member of the family gathers, however, this is NOT where Josh and Anna reside. They live in a small back house, which Josh refers to as an “in-law” type of apartment which has a huge part of his life as a child inside – so, as you can imagine the kiddies get to visit grandma and grandpa – all of their Uncles, and, of course the Aunties quite often. So, as one can imagine, Josh and Anna’s children – however, in this case, mostly Meredith along with her brother Marcus can be spotted from time to time on the one and only Duggar official Facebook site – and, this is their way of “reminding” their fans, followers and the rest of the world that Josh is here to stay and is growing his already large family.
However, during the last few months of this year, which is summer time – Josh deciding to file his own lawsuit against certain officials in Arkansas, who allegedly released sensitive documents with information that supposedly took place when he was charged with five counts of molesting very young teens – four of which were his own female siblings, the eldest brother of the Duggar family, who recently turned 29, and has four children of his own, went back into hiding to find some privacy in his life. We all know that Anna Duggar, Josh’s spouse, is in her last trimester with her fifth baby, which is due sometime between September and November of this year, and the really strange thing is, Josh has not posted one single comment on social media regarding his families newest addition, which will soon be born, even though Anna seems very happy about it – nor, has anything been posted on the Duggar’s official blog site.
What we find really strange, is the fact that Anna began posting pictures on the Twitter site that she created quite some time ago – we are talking several years of absolutely no posting at all. However, Anna has only posted on her Twitter site twice – both of which were photos regarding her two young children who celebrated their birthday’s just recently – Meredith is now two years old and Marcus just recently celebrated his fourth birthday – not only that but she also stated how much she adores her children and couldn’t imagine life without them. In just a few short months from now – right before the holidays, Anna will be super busy after the birth of her fifth child, so we know that she will definitely need some help with her other four children, all of whom are toddlers.
Will Josh step up to the plate, with his fatherly duties while his wife takes care of their newborn?! We hope so!
