‘Counting On’: Anna Duggar Just Alluded She Does Most of the Chores at Home Instead of Josh Duggar on Instagram
Those who follow the Duggar family know Josh Duggar’s saga. Back in 2015, the media revealed that he was involved in a molestation scandal years earlier — and it rocked his marriage to Anna Duggar. The two are still married now, and they have six kids together. But many wonder what their relationship is really like.
Anna never says anything negative about Josh online, but she did allude via Instagram that she’s the one doing most of the household chores. Is Josh not pulling his weight? Here’s what she said.
Josh and Anna Duggar’s youngest child is just 7 months old
Josh and Anna have six children together, and the youngest, Maryella, is just 7 months old. The littlest child was born right around Thanksgiving back in November 2019. While this normally would throw a wrench into anyone’s holiday plans, Anna was back on her feet and ready to party with Josh’s family just days after giving birth.
“Little Maryella Hope made her debut (at 5 days old) for her first #familynight with the big family … and she seemed to enjoy it so much!” Anna captioned a post on Instagram. “Our kiddos had a blast getting dressed up and spending time together with everyone while enjoying good fellowship, food and fun!”
While Anna tried to convince her followers that she was having a great time, many thought she liked way too tired to attend. “Anna looks tired, I just had my 5th and I’m tired,” one fan commented on the post.
There might be some tension between Josh and Anna
According to Anna’s Instagram, everything in her family is going well — but many speculate that that might not really be the case. She’s alluded that there has been darkness in her marriage in past Instagram posts. And she leaves Josh out of the majority of her posts in favor of sharing updates about her kids.
Some even noticed that Anna didn’t wish Josh a happy Father’s Day publicly on the ‘gram. Considering how often she posts (and she’s certainly one to celebrate the holiday), it’s surprising that she wouldn’t mention Josh.
Aside from speculation on their marriage, many wonder if Josh and Anna are slated to grow their family even more. While there’s a strong possibility the two will have more kids, it doesn’t look like they’ll be the next Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.
“I don’t think that will happen,” Anna told an Instagram follower regarding having 20 kids. “I’m loving the 6 littles God has given us! Each day is full of laughter, love, laundry, and a few random surprises!”
Anna posted about doing every household chore herself
There’s no doubt Anna’s extremely busy with her kids. And she posted about the benefits of her children napping to the ‘gram, as that’s when she can get everything done.
“When the little ones nap, I feel like it’s my 90-minute window to push through and get things accomplished: like laundry, homeschool, dinner preparations for opening the app to finish my grocery pickup order!” Anna wrote. “For me, nap time is the transition part of the day where the rest of us attempt to finish up our projects and chores so we can relax and enjoy the evening.”
According to what Anna wrote, it seems she’s the one doing all of the housework, though. And fans recommended she take time for herself.
“My number one productivity tip during nap time is lay the heck down and take care of yoself! For me that is a two hour gig,” one fan commented.
“Also a great ‘mommy quiet time’ to recharge with a fun project or Bible Study,” another wrote.
We’re hoping Josh helps Anna out with the chores, the kids, and the homeschooling more than this post makes it seem — but Anna might really be doing it all.
