Source Reveals How Anna Duggar Is Really Doing After Josh Duggar’s Jailbreak
Josh Duggar went from “19 Kids and Counting” to his jail term countdown. In December 2021, Josh was convicted of receiving and possessing child sexual abuse material NPR, and was later sentenced to 12 years and seven months in prison for his crimes. As a result, Anna Duggar is left alone with several children to raise.
For those of you in need of a refresher, Anna and Josh Duggar have seven children – Mackynzie, Michael, Marcus, Meredith, Mason, Maryella and Madyson – ranging from 12 years old to just seven months. Anna has been silent on all social media since Feb. 3, just months after Josh was sentenced, when she posted to Instagramfollowers referring to a court document showing that Josh had filed a request for acquittal or a new trial† Per Insiderhis request was denied.
While the 33-year-old remained silent during the trial and sentencing, a source who spoke to We Weekly set the record straight on her priorities, and they probably won’t surprise you.
Anna focuses on her seven children
Anna Duggar has not given any updates to the public, but a source says: We Weekly that she won’t be celebrating her upcoming birthday alone. Despite her husband not being there to celebrate, Anna Duggar will reportedly celebrate her 34th birthday on June 24 with her seven children by her side. “They are her number 1 priority and that will never change,” the source said. “She’s with them all the time.”
Taking care of seven children alone and in the midst of processing undoubtedly complicated emotions is difficult, but the source says Anna will do anything for her. “She will stand by her husband and raise her children to the best of her ability,” they said.
The sentiment will likely be the same for many birthdays to come as she raises her children alone while her husband serves his 151 month prison term (via the New York Post†
She will have to raise her children alone
This is not Josh Duggar’s first conviction. In May 2015, Josh pleaded guilty to molesting five young girls when he was 14 and 15. “Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted unforgivably and I am very sorry and deeply regret it. I have hurt others, including my family and close friends,” he said in a Facebook statement, according to We Weekly† “We spoke to the authorities where I admitted my wrongdoing, and my parents made sure that I and those affected by my actions received counseling. I understood that if I continued on this wrong path, I would lose my life. screw it up.”
He was convicted again in December 2021 for downloading videos of children who were “violated”, according to BuzzFeed† In addition to serving years in prison, the court ruled that after his release he “will not have unsupervised contact with minors,” including his own children (via We Weekly† This means that Anna Duggar will essentially be a single mother for many years to come, even if the two remain married, which probably takes into account what the Duggars think of divorce.
Whether Anna Duggar has close relatives to help or not, raising seven children alone is no small feat. The last of her seven children was born in October 2021, meaning she still has a long way to go as a single parent.
