Anna Duggar defended her husband Josh Duggar’s role as a provider days before he was arrested on charges relating to his former used car dealership.
“How do you afford all those kids? Does Josh even work?” a person on Instagram asked the pregnant reality star, who is expecting the couple’s seventh child.
“Yes, my husband is a diligent worker and provides well for our family,” Anna, 32, replied, according to People.
In 2015, the TLC reality star, who appeared on “19 Kids and Counting” and “Counting On,” quit his job at The Family Research Council after facing child molestation claims.
A bombshell report released in May of that year alleged Josh molested five underage girls, including some of his sisters, more than a decade ago.
“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,” he said in a statement at the time. “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.”
TLC pulled “19 Kids and Counting” from their TV programming that year as a result of the allegations.
It is unclear what job(s?) Josh has held in recent years. His LinkedIn profile lists his last role as executive director at FRC Action in 2015.
Josh was arrested Thursday by federal agents in Arkansas in connection to a used car dealership he once owned there, according to reports. The exact charges are still unknown.
He is being held without bail in Washington County.
Anna has not posted about her husband’s arrest on Instagram. Her last post with Josh was shared five days ago, in which they revealed they are having a baby girl.
They also share daughters Mackynzie Renée, 11, Meredith Grace, 5, Maryella Hope, 5 months, and sons Michael James, 9, Marcus Anthony, 7, and Mason Garrett, 3.
