Josh Duggar and his wife Anna are expecting their fifth child together

Reality TV star Josh Duggar is expecting baby number five.

The 19 Kids and Counting star is set to become a father once again after revealing his wife is pregnant.

The couple announced the news on their family website:

“For nearly the last two years, we have quietly worked to save our marriage, focus on our children, and rebuild our lives as a family,” they 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! – Josh & Anna.”

The couple are already parents to Mackynzie, 7, Michael, 5, Marcus, 3, and Meredith, 19 months.


The Duggar Family


Their news comes after Josh completed time in a faith-based rehab after being involved in a number of scandals.

It was revealed by InTouch magazine that Josh had molested five minors while he was a teenager – including his own sisters.

It caused TLC to pull the show from air following a successful nine seasons.

Josh was never tried or charged for the molestation offenses which he admitted, and law enforcement was never notified in any official capacity by his parents.

He then publicly admitted he was addicted to pornography and had been unfaithful to his wife during their eight-year marriage.

He spent six months in the rehab facility for sex addiction.

Josh is the oldest child of parents Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar.

The couple don’t believe in using contraception, saying how many children they have is God’s will.


Their children have been brought up with strict Christian guidelines, including dressing conservatively and chaperoned dates.

Couples aren’t allowed to hold hands until they are engaged and only share their first kiss with their partner on their wedding day.



Please make them stop!


These 2 need to be fixed! Anna, it’s hard to feel sorry for you anymore when you see no problem with bringing another child into a family that has spent the last 2 years drowning in deceit and dysfunction. I will never understand the mentality that advocates breeding like rabbits in spite of the ability to set a good example and care for the children being born. Can’t you two use common sense and do something to avoid pregnancy until you can get your lives back together? If Josh Duggar was my husband, he would be slamming it in a drawer until I was pretty confident that religious “therapy” he got was working. Personally, I doubt that the problems Josh Duggar has can be fixed. He was raised to look at normal adolescent sexual feelings as forbidden and bad. Even hugging or kissing was forbidden until marriage. We all know how that worked out for him. So the message they get from God is that you ignore the biological feelings you are born with until you can rush out and find a like minded person to COURT for 5 minutes, get married and spend the rest of your child bearing years paying no attention to anything but having sex and multiplying? That philosophy is just wrong on so many levels and Josh Duggar is the poster boy for what can happen when you choose this unnatural method of raising children.


Congrats to Josh and Anna
