Former "19 Kids and Counting" star Anna Duggar has resurfaced on social media this year, and one of the posts she made since then was dedicated to her husband, Josh, as he celebrated his 30th birthday.
She posted a video of their family singing "Happy Birthday" to Josh as he cradled his youngest son, Mason. After the song, Josh said, "Make a wish!" then blew out the candles from his cake. "Happy Birthday Josh! I'm so thankful for the 30 years of life God has given you - I love you!" Anna captioned the Instagram (@annaduggar) post.
Josh and Anna have definitely come a long way after Josh's scandals broke out seveal years ago. In the first scandal, Josh was accused of molesting several underage girls when he was still a teenager, including his sisters, Jill and Jessa. In the second scandal, he was exposed for having two paid accounts in Ashley Madison, a cheating website.
Despite his infidelity, Anna stood by Josh's side and refused to divorce him. Now, it appears their bond has strengthened. "Beautiful redemption! That's what Jesus was talking about," a fan commented. "Praise the Lord for his redeeming work," another wrote.
Many people also praised Anna for being a strong Christian woman despite the difficult ordeal she had to face. "Anna, I watch you stay true to your values and it spurs me on to be true to mine. Thank you for the hard work you put into your walk with the Lord. It's inspiring to other Christians! God will bless you! He is good," one fan wrote.
The video contradicts the claim of a supposed Duggar family insider. When asked if the Duggars appeared happy, the insider claimed yes, with the exception of Anna. "Honestly, yes, the only one who seems like she's miserable is Anna. And as someone who has met Josh multiple times, he's not someone who seems like he'd be a whole lot of fun to be married too," the source told InTouch Weekly.
"He just stares at every girl he meets like she is an object for him to do something with. Most of the Duggar boys are very respectful and are good at keeping their eyes up — Josh never has been, and I know he was reprimanded a lot for his wandering eyes as a kid," the source continued.
