Congratulations are in order for Anna and Josh Duggar, who are expecting their fifth child together! The “19 Kids and Counting” stars announced their big news on Friday on the Duggar family’s 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. 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,” the couple wrote. “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 and Anna’s marriage has struggled over the past year after it was revealed that Josh had molested five girls, including two of his sisters, when he was a teenager. He was allegedly found to have an Ashley Madison account and later admitted to cheating on his wife before seeking treatment. He left rehab a year ago and has kept a low profile ever since.
The couple shares four other children: Meredith Grace, Mackynzie, Michael and Marcus.
