Another day, another Duggar controversy.
It’s starting to feel like there’s a new Duggar parenting controversy every week — and that’s mostly because there’s a new Duggar parenting controversy every week… In hot water this time is Josh Duggar and his wife Anna, who are not only proud parents to four children, Mackynzie, 7, Michael, 6, Marcus, 4, and Meredith, 1 — but they’re also about to become parents for a fifth time.
Check out the video to get the scoop on their latest incident with the parenting police!
Josh has been largely out of the spotlight since May 2015, when In Touch exclusively revealed that he was found guilty of forcibly fondling his then-underage sister when he himself was underage. Months after coming clean about the molestation scandal, it was discovered that he had a secret Ashley Madison account. After admitting to cheating on his wife, he checked into a faith-based rehab program, where he was treated for his addiction to sex and Internet pornography.

After months in treatment, Josh has remained largely out of the spotlight — though In Touch has since exclusively revealed that he may appear on his sisters’ 19 Kids and Counting spin-off show, Counting On.

“[Duggar patriarch Jim Bob] spent a month trying to convince TLC that Josh should be back on the show. They finally caved and agreed to let him film an upcoming Counting On webisode, where he’s talka bout his joy at learning he’s going to be a father again,” an insider previously told In Touch. If the webisode is well-received, “He’ll appear on the next season of Counting On.”

It was reported back in January that engaged couple Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth have already consummated their relationship — a BIG Duggar family no-no.
“Despite this ‘courting’ nonsense, Joy-Anna and Austin have actually been having sex together for a year!” a source told Radar Online.
This allegedly even led to a pregnancy scare, so she had to come clean to her parents.
"Of course, that alone is something the family has had to hide from the public," said the source, adding it was a "huge sigh of relief when she wasn't."
“That was obviously a huge sigh of relief for everyone concerned, but it didn’t erase the horror for Jim Bob and Michelle that they had come closer than close to having another family scandal on their hands!”
