Nearly four years ago, it was unclear if Anna would ever call Josh her Valentine again. In August 2015, Josh, who was 27 at the time, was caught with two active accounts on the site Ashley Madison.

The site enabled users to cheat and was hacked, leaking the information of millions of users.

Josh admitted to using the site and said he had “been the biggest hypocrite ever.” In a statement, he said, “I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the Internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife.”

The scandal came just months after a police report leaked in May 2015, reporting that Josh, as a teenager, had molested five underage girls, including some of his own sisters.

Josh’s back-to-back scandals resulted in the family’s hit reality TV show 19 Kids and Counting being cancelled. Despite the scandal, Anna stayed with Josh, and the two welcomed their fifth child in September 2017.

When they announced the pregnancy in March 2017, they said in a statement, “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...As we continue our journey as a family and rebuild our lives, we are delighted to share with you that we are expecting a new baby boy later this year.”
