Here’s everything you need to know about Josh’s marriage to Anna Renee Keller.
Are Anna and Josh still together?
Duggar married Anna Renee Keller on September 26, 2008. They have six children together, three daughters and three sons.
Josh and Anna are still together despite Josh’s alleged infidelities, assault charges, and conviction for child pornography.
Anna confirmed the couple remain married after recently uploading a photo of the family to their 995,000 Instagram fans.
“Good to see Josh,” one user commented on the photo.
“So nice to see Josh and all your wonderful kids back,” another agreed.
“Josh, come back to the show…we’re all sinners,” one encouraged.
What religion is the Duggar family?
The Duggars are devout independent Christian Baptists who pride themselves on living conservatively.
The show frequently addresses their values and their relationship with God.
The Duggars eschew birth control, saying they have decided to allow God to determine how many children they have.
Michelle attributes her use of contraceptives to a miscarriage.
All children are homeschooled and access to entertainment such as movies and television is limited.
The Duggars also practice chaperoned courtship, in which a couple only get to know each other in a group setting.
Where is Josh Duggar today?
Joshua Duggar, 33, is the eldest son of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s 19 children. He is a former American television personality and political activist.
It was revealed several years ago that he had been accused of molesting several underage girls, including four of his sisters when he was 14 and 15.
In April 2021, Duggar was arrested and charged with receiving and possessing child pornography. He was convicted of the charges on December 9, 2021 and faces up to 20 years in prison.
In 2015, the TLC network unplugged 19 Kids and Counting after the allegations surfaced.

Counting On, a spin-off show, premiered in December 2015 and the ninth season premiered on February 11, 2019.
The spin-off follows the lives of the older Duggar children as they marry and start families of their own.
On March 30, 2021, the family’s new show, Counting On: A New Life will air on TLC at 10 p.m.
In November 2015, porn star Ashley Johnston, also known by her stage name Danica Dillon, accused Duggar of sexually assaulting her.
Johnston accused him in a lawsuit and interviews of choking, spitting and calling her “worthless” during violent sex.
She eventually dropped the lawsuit, and Duggar has always denied the allegations.
She alleged that they met in March 2015, at a strip club in Philadelphia, where she then worked, and that Josh paid her $600 for lap dances before inviting her to his room.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Johnston, 33, said she always told the truth about the alleged assault, which she described as being so intense that she felt “that guy tried to kill me,” according to the lawsuit.
Months before Johnston accused Duggar of sexually assaulting her, news broke that Duggar had paid for an Ashley Madison account.
The then 27-year-old paid an account on the service which helps married people have affairs.
He admitted to cheating on his wife and being addicted to porn.
