Former 19 Kids & Counting star Josh Duggar and his wife Anna Duggar are already the parents of five, but it looks like they are ready for more. Could the disgraced reality star and his wife be expecting baby number six?
This past week, Anna posted a pic on Instagram, and a Counting On fan asked the 30-year-old what her and Josh’s plans were for expanding their family.
“We would be thrilled if God blesses us with more children!” Anna replied.

However, when fans asked if Anna was already pregnant, Anna said “not yet,” shutting down the rumors that she was currently expecting another child. Last fall, Anna sparked those rumors by wearing a maternity dress in a family pic, but she said that she was just “overdue for a diet.”
According to In Touch Weekly, Anna also recently sparked rumors that she and Josh could be returning to reality television and appearing on Counting On this season. The speculation of a possible return came after Anna’s Instagram story this week featured Josh leading some of his siblings and children on a scavenger hunt.
In the photos, Josh was giving clues while the kids tried to find the items. But, in one pic, it looked like a cameraman was there and possibly filming for Counting On.
As fans know, Josh’s sexual molestation and cheating scandal led to TLC canceling 19 Kids & Counting. His siblings eventually moved on to the spinoff Counting On, but Josh and Anna haven’t made an appearance. In fact, TLC goes to great lengths to cut Josh out of scenes at his siblings’ weddings.

The speculation about a possible Josh comeback has been around for a while. He disappeared from the public eye after his scandal. But, in recent months he has been showing up more and more on his family’s social media pages.
So, will he be on Counting On this season? It’s not clear yet. He might make a brief appearance. But, even if there was a cameraman at the scavenger hunt, it’s entirely possible they will edit Josh and Anna Duggar out.
The new season of Counting On premieres February 11th on TLC.
