Jessa Duggar Seewald only has a few weeks until her baby is born, but the enjoyment of her pregnancy has been addled with yet another Josh Duggar scandal. The eldest of the 19 Kids and Counting clan, Josh recently admitted he has an addiction to pornography–and that he cheated on his wife, Anna Duggar. In addition, it was discovered that Josh had two Ashley Madison accounts–websites married men use to set up dates with other women.
It was just a few months ago that Jessa Duggar’s world was rocked when word of Josh Duggar’s sexual molestations as a teenager made news. Jessa–along with sister Jill Duggar Dillard–admitted to having been victimized. They both forgave Josh, however, and urged others to do the same.
Not so this time, however. Jessa Duggar Seewald’s father-in-law, Michael Seewald, wrote a scathing article about Josh Duggar on his blog. Jessa Duggar very clearly agrees with what he wrote because she has encouraged others to read it, too.
Despite the angst the 19 Kids and Counting family is enduring, Jessa Duggar is doing her best to remain optimistic. She has kept her social media followers and fans apprised of her pregnancy progression. She and hubby Ben Seewald are expecting this baby on their first wedding anniversary–November 1st.
Just yesterday Jessa Duggar shared yet another glimpse of the joy in her life, showing she is working hard to find those rays of sunshine amidst these very dark days. She shared an adorable photo of Jill Duggar Dillard’s son Israel.
“My adorable little nephew! #Izzy #IsraelDavidDillard,” she captioned the photo.
Naysayers have recently accused Jessa Duggar of being sullen over the lack of fanfare surrounding her pregnancy. When Jill Duggar Dillard gave birth to Israel, TLC aired a special 19 Kids and Counting episode featuring her birth. Jessa insists, however, that the fanfare isn’t a big deal to her.
It seems Jessa Duggar Seewald is clearly troubled by Josh Duggar’s latest scandal. Hopefully she continues to find glimpses of sun amidst her clouds as his troubles rain down on the Duggar family.
