Josh & Anna Duggar Welcome Seventh Child, Weeks Before Josh Goes On Trial For Child Sex Abuse Material Possession

“This should be the last one…unless Arkansas starts to allow conjugal visits or Josh gets out of these charges!”

It’s a big month for Josh and Anna Duggar. Not only are the former 19 Kids and Counting stars busy preparing for Josh to go on trial for possessing and receiving child sex abuse materials, but they’ve also welcomed their seventh child.

Josh and Anna announced the baby’s birth on their official Facebook page and Anna’s Instagram. As fans may remember, the couple revealed that Anna was expecting another child just days before Josh was arrested and charged in April with receiving and possessing child p0rnography. At the time of the announcement, the Duggars also revealed that the baby was another girl.

On Tuesday, Anna announced the name they had chosen for the new baby.

“Meet little Madyson Lily Duggar!” a photo of the sleeping baby was captioned.

On Instagram stories, Anna revealed that Madyson was born October 23 at 2:39 a.m. and weighed in at 7 lbs. 9 oz. at birth. She measured 20 inches long. 

In addition to Madyson, Josh and Anna are parents to six other children (all of whom have names that begin with “M.”) Those children are Mackynzie, Michael, Marcus, Meredith, Mason and Maryella.

(It’s interesting that Josh and Anna went with the name Madyson, considering that in 2015, Josh confessed to using the cheating website AshleyMadison.com to have an affair.)

As The Ashley previously reported, Anna has stood by her man since his arrest, when she accompanied him to the police station to turn himself in. Since then, she has been seen with him at court hearings, even while very pregnant.

Currently, the couple is not living together, as Josh is out on bail and staying at the home of his court-approved custodians. He is not allowed to be around any minor children except his own, and even then, Anna has to be present for his visits. 

Josh’s trial is due to begin on November 30.

  1. I just read that, Anna “isn’t worried” about Duggar’s disturbing case and believes “he will soon be free and can raise kids” together.

    Is she that stupid???


  2. LMFAOOOOO ???

    Imagine being caught on a cheating website and then naming your kid after that site!! ? I’m so done ?


  3. Ugh. I share a birthday with this poor little girl. I’m “connected” to the Duggars. Excuse me while I go vomit.


  4. I hope he doesn’t get her pregnant again while he is still out. But wouldn’t be surprised one bit if he did.


    1. JB and Michelle abstain from sex for 80 days after they have a baby girl. I hope for everyone’s sake Josh and Anna follow suit.


        1. I remember looking this up a couple years back when it was mentioned after one of the many Duggar births. It is the awful concept of Impurity after Childbirth, and according to the Book of Leviticus, women should be considered unclean and impure 40 days after birthing a boy and 80 after a girl – just further emphasising how misogynistic their beliefs truly are.


          1. Hi hope your okay???

            Jim Bob must have been tugging himself stupid lol, Hard to believe that, with all the kids they all have, they are one fkd up family,
            I’m sure they make things us as they go along.


  5. To most people it is abhorrent that Anna would even share a bed with someone who admitted to the things he has done, let alone have more children with him. However, I think it’s worth remembering that she is a member of a cult that has brainwashed her, and a female member at that, who has been taught nothing but subservience to the men in her life and has probably never questioned what they tell her their ‘god’ wants from/for her. It might seem like she has a choice in this but does she really? I mean, if her whole family and her in-laws (practically a fundi army) has told her that she needs to forgive him for his crimes and infidelities, how is she going to think for herself? And if she did take her family and go, where is she going to run to? And with now 7 kids in tow? She most likely doesn’t know anyone outside this cult and they are all telling her she’s doing the right thing standing by him. She might come to her senses one day, who knows, but religious indoctrination is a powerful thing. I hope her pos husband does a lot of time and ‘the scales fall from her eyes’. Her kids deserve so much better than this despicable family.


    1. Anna has a brother that has offered multiple times to take her and her children in to live with them. He also said that he would pay for her divorce from “that pig”. She has turned down all of his offers of help.


      1. Of course she has, she has been trained well. Husband is number 1, it’s what their ‘god’ commands. Her brother will have held sway over her whilst she was growing up but then it’s husband all the way, no matter what he does to her or his family. Terribly oppressive and misogynistic, the only escape is to feel some slight influence from the outside world and form an opinion of your own based on your experiences, instead of what your parents have programmed into you. It seems like some of the other Duggar women have achieved this and been cast out to one degree or another, it’s very brave to speak your mind when it means turning your back on your family, everything you have ever known and being ostracized for choosing to wear trousers or cut your hair. Anna is not in a position to do this right now, maybe she will be if Josh goes down for a long time.


      2. I would love it if she did leave and get a divorce. Just took the kids and went, no listening to their brainwashing and left that pos to rot in jail where he belongs, that would wipe the smirk off his fat face!


  6. Maybe this child will be the only one truly safe from her father since he will (hopefully) be in jail until she’s of drinking age.
    Let’s hope he’s the only ped0 in that family


    1. That’s what I said. Wouldnt be surprised if shes pregnant right away again. She probably feels like she has to have sex with him whenever he wants it so he isnt tempted to cheat or look at porn because of her. So sad.


      1. One of their cult teachings is that the wife should always be “joyfully available” for her husband. She’s not allowed to turn him down for sex anytime he wants it, no matter how tired she is from chasing around their litter of children or if she’s days away from birthing another one. The wife has to smile and “meet her husband’s needs”.


  7. Madyson, Mackynzie, Maryella, seriously? No wonder Anna stands by Josh, she’s a whackjob too. I hope not only is Josh sentenced to prison, but their kids get taken away. These kids deserve a chance in life ffs.


  8. Honestly the 30th can’t come fast enough. Anna can’t put those kids first so hopefully our justice system will put all children including hers first by getting this monster off the streets. Poor baby doesn’t even realize the awful parents she was born to yet but I’m sure the brainwashing starts as soon as she can keep her eyes open. Hopefully these kids learn to become strong and self reliant in spite of them instead of the cycle continuing with them.


  9. I can’t! The Ashley, I just cannot! I took a good five minutes laughing and going dizzy at the craziness of it all. Madyson! They really named the baby fucking Madyson! People on this very site joked that Madison was now off the table for future babies years ago. I just can’t believe this has actually come to happen.

    All jokes aside though, this is a terrible day. Another victim, a female one at that, has been born of an actual pedophile. His stupid, weak wife has made her inevitable burden even heavier. The cycle of misery and dysfunction continues.


  10. Great. Another innocent child that this pedophile can abuse. Anna is just as bad bringing children into the world pretending that you don’t know that he is a pedophile. Putting your own children in jeopardy is disgusting.


    1. 100% THIS she is just as awful by putting her children in this position. If I were in this position and even if I believed my husband innocent I would not allow my kids near him until I saw what evidence they had against him bc I’d assume they have enough to charge him with so there must be something and until I know for certain there ISN’T I won’t be risking my kids thinking I know better. I’m not willing to risk my children over my biased opinion.
