Anna Duggar 'is staying with Josh's guardians' before his child pornography trial as 'family helps raise their six kids'

JOSH Duggar's pregnant wife Anna is staying with his legal guardians before his child pornography trial- and her family has stepped in to help raise their six kids, sources told The Sun.

The disgraced former reality star, 33, has Anna's full support after his recent arrest for receiving and possessing inappropriate images of children.

Jim Bob and Michelle's troubled son is currently on home confinement and is living with third party custodians LaCount and Maria Reber, who are longtime friends of the patriarch. 

The Sun exclusively revealed Josh is residing in a massive mansion in Elkins, Arkansas with the Reber family – and insiders say Anna is more than a frequent visitor.

One source said: "Anna is spending most of her time with Josh at the Rebers, and her family have stepped in to help raise all their kids.

"She takes them to visit him or they are looked after while she's there alone, despite what he's been charged with she refuses to believe he's guilty.

"Anna has pretty much moved in, but she's still not on good terms with Mrs Reber.

"She's disappointed she said in his bail hearing she didn't feel safe around Josh alone.

"Mrs Reber doesn't really want her there because they don't get along."


The insider added that Anna is still not on good terms with Jim Bob and Michelle, and the children are spending more time away from the Duggar family.

A second source told The Sun that Anna has been staying in a "mother-in-law suite" at the Reber home ahead of Josh's trial.

"Her family have been helping with the kids, especially her sister Priscilla and her husband David," they said.

The YouTube channel Without A Crystal Ball also reported Anna has been spending "almost every night" at the Rebers.

The Sun has reached out to the Duggar family rep and the Reber family for comment.


The Rebers live in a one-story house featuring four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Josh has privacy with the family, as a long gravel driveway leads from the main road to the home. 

The home is an upgrade from his previous living conditions, as he resided on the Duggar family compound in a renovated warehouse with Anna and their young children.

The warehouse was featured on Counting On as a wedding dress pop-up shop for John David's wife Abbie. 

Josh was taken into custody on federal charges on April 29 following a 2019 Homeland Security raid on his now-shuttered used car dealership, The Sun exclusively revealed.

His trial has been delayed until November, and TLC canceled his family's reality show Counting On after almost six years.


"Anna is really struggling with Josh's arrest, and she's still at war with his parents Jim Bob and Michelle," a source said.

"She has been pointing the finger at everyone else for what has happened to Josh, she's falling out with family members and isolating herself.

"Overall, this is an extremely difficult time for Anna and she is praying Josh gets off, although she believes him she is worried about the outcome of the case and their family's future."

The source added that Anna is in "financial difficulty" and did receive small payments from Counting On, which she appeared on sporadically, before it was axed by the network.

Josh is accused of having a one two-minute video on his computer of two underage females and a male who performed sexual acts on the children. 

Also found were 65 images of a female "consistent with child pornography." The victims were between 5 and 12.

If convicted, he could receive 20 years in prison with fines up to $250,000 for each count.
