Anna Duggar may have finally put the divorce rumors surrounding her marriage to scandal-prone Josh Duggar with one simple Instagram post.
The Duggar family traveled nearly 500 miles from their Arkansas home to Waco, Texas, this past weekend to visit Fixer Upper stars Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Silos and Magnolia Table restaurant, and the reality show crossover featured a rare appearance from disgraced former 19 Kids & Counting star Josh Duggar. Josh’s wife Anna featured a pic of her husband on her Instagram, and it seems to be her way of attempting to silence the break-up rumors.
According to In Touch, the mom-of-five shared a series of photos from the family trip, and Josh showed up in one of them with Anna smiling as she stood by his side.
Friday we traveled 436 miles to reach Waco and had a wonderful visit at the Silos! Our kids had fun playing corn toss with dad, while mom went shopping! A group of us had an amazing lunch at Magnolia Table. After lunch was finished, Mason was ready for a nap and mom was ready for coffee (a mom’s nap in cup!). Thanks Chip & Joanna for your investment in Waco… our family made many special memories! #Waco
“Friday we traveled 436 miles to reach Waco and had a wonderful visit at the Silos,” Anna wrote in her caption. “Our kids had fun playing corn toss with Dad, while Mom went shopping! A group of us had an amazing lunch at Magnolia Table.”
Anna then thanked the Gaines for making such a great investment in Waco and said her family made a lot of special memories.
Fans were surprisingly supportive in the comments section and shared well-wishes for the family. One called Anna a strong and inspiring example of forgiveness and wrote that they are happy to see how God has redeemed and restored their family.
Another added that it was nice to see Anna smiling and they miss seeing Josh and Anna on TV. The Duggar family spinoff Counting On features Jessa and her husband Ben Seewald, Jinger and her husband Jeremy Vuolo, Joseph and his wife Kendra Caldwell, and Joy-Anna and her husband Austin Forsyth. But, since Josh’s molestation and cheating scandal back in 2015, Josh and Anna haven’t appeared on the show.
The scandal – which revealed that Josh molested five underage girls when he was a teenager, including four of his sisters – resulted in TLC canceling 19 Kids & Counting and the disgraced star going to rehab. But, Josh and Anna did not divorce, and instead welcomed their fifth child last fall.
The fact that Anna stayed by Josh’s side disappointed many fans, but she continues to support him and occasionally shares pics of her husband on Instagram, which is the only chance fans get to see him. But some believe even that is too much.
The Duggar’s visit to Waco came just days after the series finale of Fixer Upper aired on HGTV. There have been rumors that the Gaines could soon be starring on a new program on TLC, and the Duggar visit definitely added to the speculation.
New episodes of Counting On will return to TLC later this summer. To keep up with Anna Duggar she has recently started posting on Instagram regularly.
