Born in Florida in 1988, Anna Duggar (née Keller) was one of eight children. Anna met Josh Duggar at a homeschooling convention in 2006 and they soon entered a courtship, which was documented on TLC’s 17 Kids and Counting.
Two years later, the couple got engaged. They tied the knot in September 2008 at Buford Grove Baptist Church. The pair moved back to Josh’s hometown of Springdale, Arkansas, where they both started to work at his used car lot. The couple share six children: Mackynzie, Michael, Marcus, Meredith, Mason and Maryella.
Anna has stood by her husband amid multiple public scandals over the years. In May 2015, reports surfaced that Josh had molested five underage girls, which included his sisters Jill Duggar and Jessa Duggar, as a teenager in 2002. As a result of the accusations, Josh issued an apology and resigned from his position at the Family Research Council.
In August 2015, Josh admitted that he cheated on Anna after hackers released data online from the Ashley Madison dating site, where he was connected via two paid subscriptions.
Josh went on to seek treatment at a faith-based facility in Rockford, Illinois. One year later, the duo shared that they were seeing a marriage counselor to help them rebuild their relationship following the controversy.
In April 2021, Anna announced that she was pregnant with her seventh child, a baby girl. Days after she shared the good news, Josh was arrested for receiving and possessing child pornography. He was released on bond and pleaded not guilty to all charges. His trial is set for November 2021.
