Anna Duggar is standing by her man. The 27-year-old issued a new statement following her husband, Josh’s, cheating scandal, and confirmed to fans that she has, in fact, visited the disgraced reality star in rehab. But, of course it hasn’t been easy. Read the whole message here.
It has certainly been a tough year for Anna Duggar, 27, who has been raising four children while her husband, Josh Duggar, is working out his issues in rehab for sex and porn addiction. Anna has stayed strong, though, and released a new statement to update fans on how she’s doing — you can read it here.
“Many have asked how I am doing. So many have asked that its actually humbling and touching,” she wrote on the family website. “2015 was the most difficult year of my life. Yet, amazingly I’ve found that in my own life crisis God has drawn near to me (“He’s near to the brokenhearted” Psalms 34:18) and my faith has been more precious to me than ever before. Just recently I visited Josh. It was an important step on a long difficult road. I can never express how your kindness and prayers have brought encouragement when I needed it most — outpacing the grief and discouragement at every turn. I trust that God will continue to show His love and tenderness toward us, and bring beauty from ashes — somehow — as only He can do. Please continue to pray for me, Josh and our children.”
Josh has been in the Illinois rehab center since confessing to a sex and porn addiction in August. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Anna visited her husband at the center over Christmas, but this is the first time she, herself, has opened up about the difficult face-to-face.
“It is such a betrayal for a spouse to go through what we’re walking through,” Anna admitted, through tears, during a TLC special in December. “It was hard to realize that it was such a public thing, and so, not only was it a betrayal against me, but it was also a betrayal for those who call themselves Christians.” But, despite all they’ve been through, Anna has vowed to stay with her husband, and said she hopes God will help “restore” the marriage.
HollywoodLifers, are you shocked that Anna is staying with Josh?!
