Anna Duggar is reportedly pregnant with baby No. 5 as husband Josh remains in rehab to get treated for porn and sex addictions. Anna and Josh had sex when she visited him on Dec. 27 on the Duggar family’s private jet.
Anna, who has been raising her four children alone after Josh checked into rehab five months ago, has stated she’s not considering divorce at the moment because she’s committed to saving her marriage. Even though Anna is essentially a single mom right now, sources told Life & Style she’s happy with the pregnancy news because she believes it’s a sign from God.
She believes the baby is a sign that God has forgiven Josh for his many sins, and she’s vowed to stand by her husband.”
Josh has been in rehab since August 2015. It’s unknown how much longer he will remain there, but he has not seen his four children for five month now. During this time, Anna has been the subject of intense public curiosity and divorce rumors.
However, Anna said she’s committed to her marriage, so a divorce is unlikely in the near future. Meanwhile, Josh Duggar’s future and that of the entire Duggar family remain on hold as they try to ride out the public outrage over Josh’s past child molestation and recent cheating scandals.
The Duggars’ hit TV show, “19 Kids and Counting” was canceled in May 2015 after old police reports revealed Josh had sexually molested five underage girls, including his sisters Jessa and Jill.
As the family was reeling from that blast from the past, a new sex scandal erupted in November 2015 after porn star Danica Dillon filed a $500,000 lawsuit claiming Josh had sexually battered her, and their sex encounters felt like rape.
Not surprisingly, the Duggars are more than happy to exploit Josh’s scandals, and had Anna discuss her marital problems on “Jill & Jessa: Counting On.”
Fans slammed the Duggars for “pimping out” Anna and exploiting her for ratings, but the public fury only intensified the public curiosity. One angry fan wrote:
The Duggars are so sick. No child should be allowed in any of these households!”
It’s a sham, coercing Anna to contribute like she’s forgiven that pig of a husband, especially now with Josh’s girlfriend suing him for assault and battery.
Critics say the Duggars should not be allowed to profit from their scandals. However, it appears TLC is filming the family for another TV show. Cameras were spotted following the Duggars around in Arkansas last week.
Meanwhile, the Duggar family is reeling from the loss of income after TLC canceled “19 Kids and Counting.” The Duggars earned $25,000 to $45,000 per episode of “19 Kids and Counting.”
The Duggars have also reportedly lost income totaling over $25 million a year as a result of lost book deals, endorsement and speaking engagements stemming from their TV show’s cancellation. However, Jim Bob and Michelle still own a private jet and are able to support their expanding litter of children even though no one in the family has a job.
