Anna Duggar Wiki – Anna Duggar Biography

Anna Duggar is the wife of Josh Duggar. He is an American former television personality and political activist. He is best known for his appearances on the reality television series 19 Kids and Counting and Counting On. The eldest child of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar’s 19 children, Duggar was the executive director of FRC Action, a lobbying political action committee (PAC) sponsored by the Family Research Council, from June 2013 to May 2015, when news broke that he had molested multiple under-age girls, including four of his sisters when he was aged 14–15.

Revelations that Duggar had molested five girls between 2002 and 2003 and had been a member of the website Ashley Madison led to the cancellation of 19 Kids and Counting on July 16, 2015. Duggar’s publicity woes were named one of the “10 Big Scandals of 2015” by USA Today while the Washington Post listed Duggar as one of the “15 People the Internet Hated Most in 2015”.

While the details of Josh’s current job remain unclear, he resigned from his position at the Family Research Council, a Christian lobbying organization based in Washington, D.C., in 2015, amid reports that he was accused of child molestation as a teen.

In his resignation letter, obtained by PEOPLE, Josh wrote, “I deeply regret that recent media reports about my long-ago past has brought negative attention to FRC Action and its work to preserve and advance the interests of family, faith, and freedom in the political arena.”

“FRC Action’s mission to fortify the traditional foundations of civil society is more important now than ever before, and I’m heartbroken that any attention has been diverted from these noble causes to my wrong actions as a young teenager. I am so thankful for God’s grace, forgiveness, and redemptive heart that allowed me to transform into a man of faith and testimony,” the letter continued.

“In good faith, I cannot allow Family Research Council to be impacted by mistakes I made as a teenager, so I am resigning as Executive Director of FRC Action. I will continue to pray for the advancements of the causes we believe in and I hope that in the days ahead you will pray for me and Anna as we seek God to discover the next chapter of our lives in His service,” Josh concluded.

The pair’s marriage was further rocked by scandal in 2015 when Josh also confessed to cheating on Anna and having an addiction to pornography.

Less than a week after his apology, Josh entered a faith-based rehabilitation center, and he and Anna later entered marriage counseling.

In October, Anna celebrated 12 years of marriage to her husband, posting a tribute to Josh on Instagram to mark the milestone in their relationship.

“12 years ago today we said, ‘I do!’ I’m so thankful for God’s grace and kindness that has continually surrounded our family!” Anna wrote in the caption, sharing a family photo. “Joshua, I’m looking forward to growing old with you! ♥️”
