Josh Duggar may have released a statement about the sexual abuse claims unearthed in a police report from 2002 in a Facebook message, but the 19 Kids And Counting star didn’t seem to have much to say when asked about it in person.

Paparazzi caught the dad-of-three at the Washington D.C. Reagan Airport on May 20 and the 27-year-old seemed to smile as he was questioned about the allegations.

“We don’t comment to paparazzi,” he said, as he carried his child through the airport.

On May 21, he fessed up to the molestation of five women in an official statement, saying he “acted inexcusably.”

"Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends," he said in a statement. "I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life."
