Josh Duggar is back in the spotlight — nearly two years after he checked into rehab, following In Touch’s revelation that he “forcibly fondled” his then-underage sisters and his own confession of cheating on his wife.
His family took to Facebook to wish a happy birthday last week — and made it clear that they still have their concerns when it comes to him.
“Happy birthday, Josh. We love you, your amazing wife, and sweet children,” his family wrote. “We pray that you diligently follow and serve the Lord with your whole heart all the days of your life and that this year is a wonderful year for you and your family.”
While Josh’s family has been welcoming in accepting the one-time cheater back into their lives, the network that used to air 19 Kids and Counting hasn’t been so forgiving.
Not only did TLC cancel the show after news of Josh’s investigation came to light, but they were recently caught editing footage of his younger sisters’ spin-off show, Jill and Jessa: Counting On, to include a fake sun glare in order to edit Josh out of the family friendly show during a scene of JInger’s wedding to her new husband Jeremy Vuolo.
Here's to hoping 29 is a better year for Josh, his wife Anna, and their four kids — Mackynzie, Michael, Marcus, and Meredith!
