Josh and Anna Duggar announced their seventh pregnancy, and shortly after, news of his arrest broke. So, what could this mean for Anna and the kids? Will she have to be a single mom?
Josh Duggar’s arrest
On Thursday, Josh was arrested by the feds. It’s unclear why he was arrested at this time, but he’s being held without bail. There is plenty of speculation about why he could have been arrested. Fans and critics of the family feel that it’s pretty bad since there’s no bail. For now, we have to wait for more news to come out to know exactly what is going on.
While fans and critics wait, they have plenty of questions. Many people seem to be concerned about Anna, who has six kids and one more on the way. Fans feel bad for her, as well as the kids.
Will Anna Duggar have to be a single parent?
As mentioned, Josh and Anna just announced their seventh pregnancy. They will welcome a baby girl to the world in the fall. The stress of raising six kids, being pregnant, and having a husband in jail must be difficult for Anna. Depending on how things shake out with Josh’s charges, she may end up being a single parent for a while.
Since we don’t know the charges yet, it’s unclear whether Anna will be flying solo. She and Josh already live near the Duggar family’s property, so she has them nearby for support. Plus, most of the other Duggars live in Arkansas in the same area. So, if Josh does spend some time in jail, she will have some help. She could even move in with her in-laws, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, or she could move to live with some of her family members instead.
Others wonder if Anna will stay with Josh through all of this. They have already been through a lot, including the molestation scandal, his affairs, a porn addiction, and much more. They worry that if Anna hasn’t left him after all of that, she won’t leave him now. Of course, this is all speculation, so we will have to see what Anna and Josh decide to do about their marriage.
So, do you think Anna Duggar will need to be a single mom following Josh’s arrest? Let us know in the comments below.
