Former reality star Josh Duggar resurfaced on Instagram this weekend after his wife, Anna Duggar, shared a video of him on his 30th birthday. "Happy Birthday Josh! I'm so thankful for the 30 years of life God has given you — I love you!" she captioned the snap. Watch the video above to see the post.
Back in 2015, Josh confessed to his father, Jim Bob, on three separate occasions to multiple acts of sexual molestation against his sisters and a family friend, according to a police report obtained by In Touch exclusively. "James said that in March of 2002 [redacted, Josh] who had just turned 14, came to him very upset and crying," the report read. "James said that [redacted, Josh] had told him that he had been sneaking into [redacted, his sisters’] room at night and had been touching [redacted, his sisters] on the breasts and vaginal areas while they were sleeping." The report details that Josh went from sister to sister, stating, "Apparently all of the girls were sleeping in a common room at this time."

Surprisingly, many fans sent well-wishes to the child molester. "So good to see him looking happy!!" one person wrote. Another added, "Happy Happy Birthday Josh!!! What a sweet and special Family you have! I wish you all the happiness in the world! I love you all."
Others, however, weren't so forgiving. "Sicko..." someone simply commented. A second chimed in, "This is disgusting, nobody wants to see your cheating child molester husband who’s holding his baby’s toes only cm from that flame. You should probably delete this post, the fat lump is disgusting me. Hope he burns in hell."
In September, Anna gave birth to the couple's fifth child together — a son named Mason. "We are so thankful and happy to announce the arrival of our new son, Mason Garrett Duggar. Both he and Anna are doing well," the statement on the family's website read. "He arrived today without complication and we already adore him. The entire family is ecstatic over the arrival of another beautiful blessing. We want to thank everyone for your prayers, kind words, and well wishes. We appreciate it more much than we could ever express. We pray God blesses each of you with an abundance of the kindness you've shown us."
