Anna Duggar: Here’s the Truth About My Womb!

Anna Duggar is sick and tired of letting websites and anonymous sources do the talking.

The mother of five has taken the unusual step (for her) of speaking out on social media in order to address talk that she’s pregnant with yet another child.

Such chatter has started up in earnest again for the same reason it almost always does when the topic turns to women, their appearances and a photo:

Some Internet users out there basically think they see a baby bump in Anna’s most recent Instagram snapshot.

She shared it several days ago and it drew attention at the time NOT because of how Duggar’s midsection appeared…

… but because husband Josh Duggar made any appearance whatsoever.

Indeed, initial reaction from followers featured outrage and irritation that they were reminded of Josh’s mere existence, something most folks really wish would cease to exist due to his past of:

1. Molesting his sisters.

2. Cheating on his wife.

However, once annoyance over seeing Josh’s dishonest and immoral face subsided, users looked at Anna’s belly and wondered:

IS SHE PREGNANT?

And Anna is now here with the answer.

After seeing that an Instagram stranger told Anna that she was “showing,” the former reality star felt a need to end this debate once and for all.

“I’m not expecting,” she wrote. “Only overdue for adiet.”

This reply, once again, has us feeling just awful for Anna Duggar.

She is stuck in a marriage with one of the world’s worst human beings and she is essentially trapped in a cult, unable to break free.

That is all pretty terrible.

But then Duggar then also must suffer the embarrassment of having her figure analyzed and dissected by random people on the World Wide Web…

… to the point that they think she’s full-on pregnant when she’s maybe just packed on a few pounds.

That’s what happens when you eat away your feelings each night because your husband molested his sisters.

Can anyone blame Anna for likely drowning her sorrows in pints of ice cream every week?

Anna and Josh, meanwhile, already have their hands full with five kids. Yes, FIVE. And Anna is only 30 years old!

Mackynzie was born in 2009, Michael in 2007, Marcus in 2013, Meredith in 2015 and Mason in 2017.

The last one truly took fans by surprise, considering the pregnancy announcement was made a mere two years after Josh confessed to inappropriately groping two of his siblings.

“For nearly the last two years, we have quietly worked to save our marriage, focus on our children, and rebuild our lives together as a family,” the couple said back then, adding:

“Doing so is never easy after a breach of trust.

“We’ve learned that a life of faith and rebuilding a life together is simply done one day at a time.”

Anna Duggar: Why Fans Are Convinced She’s Pregnant With Baby #6!

Earlier this week, Josh Duggar dared to show his face online again, rearing his ugly head in a family photo.

Fans were irate — and were so distracted that some didn’t immediately notice that something about Anna’s look was very conspicuous.

Now, however, these eagle-eyed Duggar fans believe that Anna Duggar is pregnant with baby #6!

Josh Duggar is so reviled that even people who like the Duggar family hate him, and those who dislike the Duggars as a whole still think that he’s worse than the rest.

That’s what happens when the world finds out that you molested little girls and got away with it.

So it is totally understandable that almost everyone’s attention was fully on Josh appearing in Anna Duggar’s Labor Day family photo.

But if you turn your attention to the right of the pic, you will notice that Anna is also partially off screen, even though she and Josh could have easily fit into the picture.

She could be hiding a baby bump.

But the fact that half of her body is excluded isn’t the only reason why fans think that she’s pregnant. Can you catch it?

Anna Duggar Labor Day Photo, no arrows

While most of the comments are either from people going “yikes” about Josh appearing in a photo or, worse, from people defending him, others pointed out Anna’s dress.

These fans recognized it as the same floral print maternity gown that she was wearing not all that long ago.

While it’s totally possible to wear a maternity gown because it’s relatively comfortable and loose-fitting, fans can’t help but wonder if she is once again pregnant.

It has been almost exactly one year since Anna gave birth. Considering that we’re talking about the Duggar family, it is not unreasonable to think that she may be pregnant again.

Take a closer look at Anna and her gown.

If she is pregnant, it looks like she’s still at an early enough stage of her pregnancy that she can conceal an obvious baby bump by wearing a loose gown and by leaning forward.

(And, of course, by cropping off part of her body in the photo)

As we mentioned, it’s been a while since she gave birth. Mason Duggar will turn one year old in less than a week — on September 12.

Late last month, Anna revealed a health issue impacting baby Mason.

Maybe Mackynzie, age 8, Michael, age 7, Marcus, age 5, Meredith, age 3, and Mason, age 1-ish are going to get a baby sibling.

As we mentioned, the photo saw a number of passionate defenders speak up for Josh Duggar.

One commenter suggested that, in the future, Anna should simply disable comments when she shares a picture of Josh, so that she doesn’t have to look at the “hate.”

Another condemned Josh’s detractors, writing “society doesn’t understand true forgiveness,” as if holding child-molesters accountable is a strictly secular value.

(For the record, it is not, and we should note that other famous conservatives, including some Robertsons of Duck Dynasty fame, publicly urged Anna to divorce the creep)

One commenter even revealed that her own son had “gone through” what Josh had when he was 15, and expressed pity for these men for facing consequences for their actions. Wow.

Even if Anna is pregnant, you can bet that the discourse over Josh is not going away any time soon.

Some fans feel that, all things considered, it is simply too soon for Baby #6.

Others feel that, at this point, she’s as thoroughly linked to Josh as she can be, and another child won’t do any harm.

That said, it’s always possible that she was just wearing a comfortable, loose-fitting dress that still complies with Duggar rules.

In the mean time, fans think that they have proof that Lauran Swanson is pregnant with Josiah Duggar’s baby already.

Anna Duggar Reveals Health Issue Impacting Baby Mason

Anna Duggar offered her followers a rare glimpse at all of five of the children she shares with the reviled Josh Duggar, a man some fans feel should be forgiven.

As cute as it is to see the little ones gather around the table for dinner, Anna also revealed some information about her youngest.

As it turns out, adorable little Mason has a health condition.

“Pancakes for a Saturday brunch may seem ordinary,” Anna’s captions begin. “But today at our house it is a big deal! It is Mason’s first time to have (dairy-free) pancakes!”

Mason, she reveals, is unable to tolerate a certain group of foods.

“Yup, you may have guessed it,” Anna writes. “Lil Mason has a milk protein (aka dairy) allergy.”

“Allergies showed up at 2 weeks,” she shares. “And caused us to switch to formula while momma cut dairy and other potential allergy causing foods out of my diet.” 

She then lists the foods that she cut out in order to use a guess-and-check method to eliminate other variables: “(i.e. gluten, corn, soy, eggs, nuts, chicken, & nightshade foods).”

(Look at him! Adorable!)

Anna shares that her efforts paid off.

“Thankfully,” she writes. “As we added things back into my diet we discovered Mason was only allergic to dairy,”

“And,” Anna continues. “By January he was back to 100% nursing and thriving.”

She says that he grew healthily, “reaching 20lbs at 6 months!”

“Sometimes in life,” Anna reflects. “We are faced with a mountain that seems impossible.”

Anna, being a devout Christian fundamentalist, presents this as a teaching moment within the context of her faith.

“We pray asking God to move the mountain,” she continues. “Yet God wants us to climb it!”

“Even though it is unexpected (and hard work) it is so worth it,” Anna instructs. “God’s grace is sufficient for each step of the way!”

“To have a mountain top experience,” she advises. “You must first climb the mountain!”

Pointing out that ski lifts exist is not as clever as it sounds in your head, folks.

“So friends,” Anna continued in her captions. “Whatever you’re facing today, keep doing the next right thing.”

It is unclear whether she is suggesting that God gave Mason a dairy allergy to challenge him or to challenge her, but perhaps she is simply imparting a lesson.

“Go take the next step!” Anna advises. “It’s totally worth it to keep going when you know you’re on the right track!”

That’s true enough. She does, however, have a question for her fans.

“P.S. Any tips for a good dairy-free pizza?”

Anna, of course, is no stranger to insurmountable obstacles. Not only did Josh Duggar cheat on her, it also came to light that he molested multiple very young girls, and that his family covered it up.

This would be difficult on any wife, but was especially hard for Anna, whose insular and extreme faith community teaches her that she cannot divorce her husband.

Like her sisters-in-law, Anna is denied a real life or career, and lacks even the agency to leave her widely despised husband.

So when she talks about climbing mountains in the hope that it’ll be worth it in the end, she’s probably talking about bigger challenges than a dairy allergy.

But seriously — poor little Mason.

Anna Duggar Shares Rare Glimpses of Children, Continues to Break Out of Social Media Shell

Anna Duggar is starting to really take to this whole social media thing.

The beleaguered former reality star had been silent on Instagram between May 1 and July 5.

She had been similarly quiet on Twitter during this same time period, only re-sending a few messages from her family’s official account for over two months.

Not that we could blame her, of course.

Not that anyone could really blame her.

The 30-year old is trapped in a marriage to an ADMITTED child molester and an ADMITTED adulterer.

Josh Duggar has owned up to the fact that he inappropriately touched two of his sisters back when he was a teenager and also to having cheated on Anna via the infidelity website Ashley Madison.

It’s very ugly stuff all around.

So anyway. Our point is that we totally understand why Anna would stay as far away from the spotlight as possible.

For whatever reason, however, she has chosen to emerge a bit from her social media cocoon of late.

First, Anna gave props to John-David Duggar for courting.

Then, she gushed over her relationship with Josh and we threw up a lot.

Now, Anna has opened up about two of her kids, starting with eight-year old Mackynzie.

“Mackynzie, Jordyn and cousin Emily enjoyed attending a sewing camp this week!”

Yes, sewing camp.

Instead of rolling our eyes over this concept, however, we’ll simply echo the sentiment of most Instagram followers who think this is a very cute photo of young Mackynzie.

Because it definitely is.

Whatever issues we have with her father, they obviously do not apply to her or any of her siblings.

We just feel terrible for them.

Elsewhere, Anna also posted a video of her two-year old daughter Meredith belting out a tune.

Check it out here:

“She is adorable! And hearing her sing made me smile ear to ear. So precious!” reads one comment in response.

We don’t know why Anna has chosen to suddenly be so open about her kids, but perhaps she just needs some positive reinforcement in her life.

Any time Anna mentions Josh, she gets slammed online.

Folks wonder how the heck she can remain with such a disgusting cheater.

But the opposite takes place any time Anna shares a picture or video of her young children… and for an understandable reason:

They’re so very cute, young and innocent.

Anna is the mother of Mackynzie, Michael, Marcus, Meredith and Mason.

She met Josh in 2006 at a Christian homeschooling convention and the two got married two years later in Florida.

They have since welcomed the five kids cited above.

And while Anna and Josh will no longer appear on TLC because the original Counting On was canceled in the wake of Josh’s molestation scandal, it does look like we’ll be seeing a lot more of their kids going forward.

We just pray they grow up alright.

Josh and Anna Duggar: Proof That Their Marriage Is a Sham?

Last week, Josh and Anna Duggar celebrated an anniversary.

The usually private couple to Instagram to share their special occasion with fans:

“Josh and I celebrated our 10-year engagement anniversary,” Anna captioned the pic above.

“The past 10 years have been a wonderful adventure.”

Yes, these two were so eager to celebrate a decade together that they jumped the gun and marked the occasion of their engagement, not their wedding.

Clearly, they’re still head over heels for one another, right.

Well, not so fast, says body language expert Dr. Lillian Glass.

Dr. Glass says Anna’s stance and facial expression convey that she’s uncomfortable being so close to Josh and is forcing herself to look happy for the camera’s benefit.

“She has a tight smile,” Dr. Glass says.

“Her eyes are not smiling. She’s gritting her teeth. It’s very contrived.”

Dr. Glass even goes so far as to claim that one can reach a definitive conclusion regarding Anna’s feelings toward Josh based on the photo:

“Anyone with eyes can see there’s no love there,” she says.

Glass also analyzed the video below, in which several members of the Duggar clan congratulate Jinger Duggar on her pregnancy:

Once again, Dr. Glass, says, Anna’s posture and movements are evidence that she’s uncomfortable being so close to her husband.

“It’s rehearsed,” she says.

“This is what she’s told to do. He has his hands on her to guide her to do it right.”

Glass adds:

“He has both hands on her shoulders, like a control thing.”

According to Dr. Glass, the video essentially serves as evidence that Josh and Anna’s wedding is a sham:

“She’s uncomfortable. She’s rocking back and forth. It’s so phony and contrived.”

As longtime followers of the Duggar clan know, Anna has good reason to feel uncomfortable.

Many fans expected Anna to leave her husband after the Josh Duggar sex scandals went public back in 2015.

She stood by her husband’s sign amidst claims of pedophilia and incestuous behavior, but she was soon punished for her loyalty when it was revealed that Josh had used the Ashley Madison website in order to find a partner with which to cheat on Anna.

Divorce is strictly forbidden in the Duggars’ world, which likely explains why Anna has chosen not to end her marriage.

But that doesn’t mean she’s happy about it.

Anna Duggar Gushes Over Josh, Makes Internet Barf

Poor, Anna Duggar.

Correction: poor, poor, POOR Anna Duggar.

The mother of five remains married to her husband despite Josh Duggar having been involved in two of the more disgusting scandals we can recall.

We can't imagine she has any kind of support system around her — and we can imagine that her in-laws have all laid on extreme guilt trips about her leaving her gross husband and trying to start over without his terrible influence.

This is relevant once again because Anna made a surprising return to Instagram in early July of 2018, actually writing nice things about Josh in honor of a milestone for the couple.

Get out that barf bag and scroll down to find out what she said…

1. Yes, Anna Duggar is on Instagram

Josh duggar and a kid
But she rarely posts messages or photos. The last time she shared a picture of Josh Duggar was on March 1, 2017. It was the picture above and she wrote as a caption: “Happy Birthday Josh! I’m so thankful for the 30 years of life God has given you – I love you!”

2. The Last Time Anna Posted Anything at All?

Annamessage
You need to go back to May 1, 2018. She asked if anyone would be watching the film “Love Arrows” and included with this question the quote above.

3. So, Why Did She Return on July 5?

Annad
Because “June was an exciting month for our family,” Anna wrote as a caption to multiple photos, explaining why as follows: “Marcus, Michael and I are are officially a year older + Josh and I celebrated our 10 year engagement anniversary!” It was this last statement that got the attention of fans, especially when you consider how she followed it up.

4. She Followed It Up with This Photo

Josh kisses anna
And also with this conclusion to her caption: “The past 10 years have been a wonderful adventure. So thankful for God’s redeeming grace and His blessings to us along the way, especially our 5 M’s!”

5. A Wonderful Adventure, Huh?

Reacttoanna
That’s one way to look at it. Fans had a mixture of responses to this description, from those who thought Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have pressured Anna to remain married… to those who thought it was no one’s business… to those who believe Josh had been redeemed.

6. Wait… Redeemed for What?!?

Anna and josh duggar
In case you aren’t aware, let us refresh your memory here: Josh admitted in May of 2015 that he molested two of his sisters and five girls overall. It was also revealed that his parents were aware of these actions, yet did not go to the authorities.

Anna Duggar Actually Tweets, Sends Note to Brother-in-Law

Anna Duggar Tweets less often than family members of hers have babies.

That’s barely even a joke.

The Duggars have A LOT of babies and Anna sends very few messages on Twitter.

But the woman who is stuck sharing a bed each night with Josh Duggar took to her social media account on Tuesday night in order to address her brother-in-law, John David Duggar.

Anna did so in light of the bombshell news that John David is courting.

He’s officially googly eyes (and nothing more!) at someone named Abbie Burnett, having confirmed the development yesterday to Us Weekly and then on the official Duggar website.

“Abbie and I are just so excited, we’ve known of each other for several years,” the 28-year-old explained simply, adding that the two “fell in love quickly.”

Burnett, meanwhile, says she and her beau really connected at a church event in Oklahoma, which is where she resides and works as a nurse.

The relationship is taking a segment of the Internet by storm, prompting even someone as shy as Anna to chime in.

“Congratulations! So happy for you both!” she wrote in response to John David and Abbie praising the goodness of God on their joint Twitter account.

annatweet

Oh, yes, things are serious enough for this new couple to already have a Twitter handle, @johnandabbie.

The message you see above is the first they’ve sent from it.

And the message penned by Anna above is the first she has personally sent since May 1, at which time she asked if anyone else was going to watch some film titled “Like Arrow.”

Aside from that, her Twitter page over the past two months has just been filled with re-Tweets of posts from the official Duggar account.

The mother of five has stayed very quiet on all forms of social media ever since her husband was accused of molesting two of his sisters, along with the family’s babysitter, in 2015.

Josh eventually admitted to this digusting actions, and also later admitted to cheating on Anna through the hook-up website Ashley Madison.

The guy totally sucks, but that isn’t the point right now.

The point, instead, is that John David may have at last found the woman of his dreams.

At 28 years old, in the view of his controversial parents, he’s waiting long enoughm that’s for certain.

This is what Jim Bob and Michelle had to say in the wake of their son’s courtship confirmation:

We are so excited to announce the courtship of John David and Abbie!

John David brings our hearts so much joy and we’ve watched him faithfully pray, wait, and trust God for the right girl to come along!

Now, a beautiful relationship has blossomed between the two of them.

We can’t wait to see what the Lord will do in the future.

Anna Duggar: Getting Friendly With Lawson Bates Behind Josh Duggar’s Back!

It’s been three years since the world learned that Josh Duggar molested five young girls while still living under his parents’ roof.

In that time, very little has changed for his siblings and parents, who seemed to have no trouble rebuilding their lucrative media empire.

However, a great deal has changed for Josh, whose life really couldn’t be more different than it was in 2015

Yes, three short years ago, Josh was a Washington lobbyist and reality TV star with dreams of running for office.

These days, his career trajectory couldn’t be more different.

But at home, Josh’s life remains largely unchanged.

Despite his many, many indiscretions, Josh still controls his wife, Anna, to the point that he tells her who she’s allowed to be friends with.

And not surprisingly, it seems that arrangement has led to some very tense situations.

Josh is mostly cut off from the rest of the Duggars these days, and longtime friends of the family reportedly want nothing to do with him.

The situation reached the point where the father of five rarely ventures into his hometown of Tontitown, where he’s known as “Josh the molester,” one source tells us.

But lots of folks who want nothing to do with Josh have maintained close ties to the rest of the family — including the Bates family of Bringing Up Bates fame.

Yes, it’s possible that there’s no family in America who has more in common with the Duggars than the Bates.

They’re also a massive clan of fundamentalists who starred in their own reality show — and they also want nothing to do with Josh.

Which is why fans are so intrigued by the fact that Anna Duggar and Lawson Bates have been interacting on social media.

Anna Duggar-Lawson Bates Split

Lawson recently tweeted the above photo of himself holding Josh and Anna’s youngest son, Mason.

But while he was happy to visit the Duggar clan during his time in Arkansas, Lawson reportedly avoided Josh like the plague.

Interestingly, however, it seems he got along quite well with Josh’s wife and children.

As In Touch Weekly points out, Anna was quick to comment on Lawson’s photo, tweeting:

“Great to have you in town! Mason enjoyed getting to hang out with you :).” 

It may not seem like Anna and Lawson are going to any great lengths to hide their friendship.

But it’s important to bear in mind that Josh’s social media use is closely monitored, and he’s only allowed to use Facebook.

So he might never catch wind of Anna and Lawson’s back-and-forth.

Fans have been pushing for Anna to file for divorce from Josh, so they couldn’t be happier about this development.

Unfortunately, it’s extremely unlikely that Anna will leave Josh for Lawson.

Divorce is strictly forbidden in the Duggars’ community, and Anna clearly has every intention of sticking by her man.
