Anna Duggar, the notorious wife of disgraced former reality star Josh Duggar, has gone through a lot in the past few years. While living through her husband’s molestation and cheating scandals, Anna kept a smile on her face and had nothing but kind words for her famous in-laws. But in her most recent Instagram post, the mother-of-five seemingly threw down a little trash talk towards the famous reality TV family.
According to The Hollywood Gossip, Anna made it clear in her latest post that she was THE babymaker in the family.
You know you’re a #DuggarMom when your kids eat cucumbers faster than you can prepare them! I’m so thankful for the 5 beautiful children God has given us (+1 in heaven!). Jim Bob & Michelle have 10 grandchildren and 2 more on the way. On Joshua’s side of the family I’m mommy to 1/2 of the grandchildren so far…and the only grand-daughters! #FunFactFriday @duggarfam
Her “+1 in heaven” remark referred to the miscarriage she suffered back in 2010, an experience that Anna has called the greatest heartbreak of her life.
But fans are mostly focused on her remarks about the number of grandchildren she has given Jim Bob and Michelle. Anyone that is familiar with the Duggars knows that the family prioritizes procreation above everything else, and Anna’s comments seem to be boastful remarks about her contributions.
Not only is she responsible for half of the Grand-Duggars, but she is also the mom of the only two granddaughters, and Anna wanted to remind everyone of that fact.
This would normally be a comment that fans would call out, but it appears that they are giving Anna a pass this time because she has earned it.
In addition to Josh’s multiple sex scandals, Anna has had to deal with living her life in exile because of her decision to stand by her man. The couple live in a separate town from the rest of the family and has zero involvement in the Duggar media empire.
He lost his job in Washington, D.C. with the Family Research Council, and is now selling used cars on a family lot.
The couple did welcome baby number five last year after Josh returned home from rehab, but the baby’s birth did not have the usual fanfare of a new Duggar arrival.
The family has mostly kept their distance from the oldest son since his scandal, with rare appearances in social media and no participation in Counting On. Fans remain revolted by his actions, and when anyone reminds them of his existence, the response is not positive.
A family acquaintance says that Anna Duggar is miserable after staying with Josh Duggar after the scandals, but in this family, divorce is never an option.
New episodes of Counting On air Monday nights on TLC.
