In the wake of two sex scandals involving her husband Josh, it’s probably not surprising that Anna Duggar looked tired and in a less-than-celebratory mood as she took her children to a family wedding alone this weekend.
Anna, along with the rest of the extensive Duggar clan, gathered on Sunday to attend the wedding Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s niece Amy to Dillon King in Bentonville, Arkansas.
Notably absent was her husband Josh, who recently started a long-term treatment program at a Christian rehab center after it was revealed he had extramarital affairs and also molested four of his sisters as a teenager.
In pictures taken at the event, Anna is seen leering at the photographer’s camera while holding one of her sons. Dressed modestly in a blue shirt and khaki skirt, Anna stands at the outskirts of the rest of the Duggar brood, who appear to be in happier spirits.
Amy Duggar tied the knot with her fiance of less than two months, Dillon King, at Horton Farms near Bentonville, Arkansas where 400 guests were expected to be in attendance, according to People.
In an interview, Amy Duggar spoke kindly of her new in-law Anna, saying: ‘She’s been through so much.’
For the outdoor ceremony, Amy enlisted Anna’s 5-year-old daughter Mackynzie as one of her flower girls, along with her younger Duggar cousins Johanna, Jordyn, Jennifer and Josie.
Meanwhile, a source has told ET that it would not be surprising if more information comes out suggesting Josh Duggar had even more mistresses.
‘It’s all so sad, and at this point, who knows what else will come to light,’ the source told ET.
Last month, porn star Danica Dillon shared details about her alleged sexual encounters with the disgraced reality star.
Also in August, Josh Duggar released a statement saying he had been unfaithful to his wife, Anna, and that he had been 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 bombshell statement came just hours after the troubled 19 Kids and Counting star was named as one of the 37 million cheating spouses to allegedly have Ashley Madison accounts.
Josh has edited this statement multiple times, removing that he had a porn addiction and a reference to his molestation of his siblings as a teenager.
On the Duggar family’s official website, Josh Duggar’s statement no longer mentions pornography and has since been edited to read: ‘I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have been unfaithful to my wife.’
The outing of him allegedly having Ashley Madison accounts is just the latest controversy for the reality star after he was forced to admit molesting four of his nine sisters as a teen.
Those revelations brought an end to his family’s reality TV show.
He was never charged with a crime for the incidents as by the time police learned of the offenses the statue of limitations had passed, and his parents did not notify authorities in an official capacity at any point after learning about their son’s actions.
For 10 seasons, 19 Kids and Counting had chronicled the home life of Arkansas couple Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their now-19 children including Josh.
Earlier in the day, Anna and the rest of the Duggar family attended a service at Cross Church where the pastor delivered a message espousing on the ‘secret sin’ of pornography.
