While former "19 Kids & Counting" star Josh Duggar is working out his issues with sex addiction in rehab, his wife, Anna Duggar, is reportedly quietly "taking the time she needs for herself." Anna Duggar's cousin-in-law Amy Duggar recently opened up about how the mother of four is coping following Josh Duggar's cheating scandal.
As previously reported, the 27-year-old admitted in August to being unfaithful and having several accounts on the cheating site Ashley Madison. The news came a few months after he apologized for molesting five underage girls when he was a teenager, including sisters Jill and Jessa Duggar. Currently, Josh Duggar is receiving treatment at the Christian-based rehab facility Reformers Unanimous in Rockford, Illinois.
Amy Duggar, who married Dillon King this month, told Entertainment Tonight Anna Duggar was "doing well" and spending a lot of time with her family.
"There is a reason God gives you family. It’s for moments like this," Amy Duggar said. "We encourage her as much as we can.”
A source close to the Duggar family previously told E! Online Anna Duggar was staying with her mom, Suzette Keller, and was still "supporting" her disgraced husband. "She isn't in Arkansas; she is getting support from her family," the source said. "She is staying with her mom."
The last time Anna Duggar was seen in public was at Amy Duggar's Sept. 6 wedding in Bentonville, Arkansas, with her four children. At the time, Amy Duggar said she felt it was best her cousin Josh Duggar didn't attend her nuptials because he still needed to get "as much help as possible."
