The Duggars are at it again. Josh and Anna Duggar announced on Instagram earlier today that they are expanding their family.


The proud parents posed with their five children – the youngest is 19-month-old Mason. They also share Meredith, 3, Marcus, 5, Michael, 7, and Mackynzie, 9.

Josh and Anna wrote in the caption that they are "so excited" to announce the news. "As we watch our children grow and thrive, we look forward to baby six joining us this fall."


The couple will celebrate their 11th wedding anniversary in July. It's a special month for the family as Anna, Marcus and Michael's birthday all fall in the same month.

The news is bound to stir mixed emotions among fans and critics. Readers may recall that Josh doesn't have the cleanest of slates.

Not only did he cheat on Anna four years ago, and admitted to it, but the disgraced eldest son of the Duggar clan also made headlines for molesting five girls when he was 15.

Four of the victims were his sisters. Despite his the cheating ways and tendency to ruin children's lives, Anna remained loyal to the sex pest and chooses to raise their daughters with him.
