It’s been two years since the Duggar family (and the world) was rocked by Josh Duggar’s confession about being a sex addict and molesting at least two of his sisters when he was a teenager.
He apologized for his wrong-doings, sought treatment, and returned to his family.
Now, after rekindling his marriage, Josh and Anna Duggar have announced they are expected baby #5!
The couple chose to announce the news in a blog post on the family website.
“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. 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!”
The news comes a few weeks after Josh made a very rare public appearance for his 29th birthday.
The reality TV star has kept a low-profile since his scandal broke, trying to keep his family together and heal through the power and love of the Lord.
Josh and Anna already have four children, Mackynzie Renée Duggar (7), Michael James Duggar (5), Marcus Anthony Duggar (3), and Meredith Grace Duggar (18 months.)
