‘Counting On’: Josh Duggar’s Wife, Anna, Revealed One of the Best Parts of Her Day on Jill Duggar’s Instagram

We’ve been watching TLC’s Counting On for years, and we still haven’t tired of hearing updates on the Duggar family. While Jinger, Jessa, Jana, and Joy-Anna Duggar are featured regularly on the show, there are a few other family members who keep their social media followers apprised with what’s going on in their lives. And we rely heavily on Instagram for updates on both Jill Duggar and Josh Duggar’s wife, Anna.

Jill is no longer regularly featured on Counting On, but she gives her followers plenty of photos and videos of her family. And Anna also keeps her fans in the loop with what’s going on with her six children despite the frequent backlash she receives for sticking by Josh’s side.

It seems Jill and Anna are close, too. Jill posted a photo of her with one of her kids, and Anna commented on the post with some insight into the best part of her day. Here’s what was said.

Jill Duggar posted some highs and lows regarding motherhood

While Jill has plenty of fans, it seems she has more folks than ever criticizing her parenting, her marriage, and her recipes on Instagram. Jill’s known for being an open book, and that means she’s willing to share all the ups and downs in her life with social media followers. And recently, it seems she’s getting real about the difficulties of life as a mom of two.

Jill posted a photo of a bouquet of flowers on Dec. 18 and explained that her husband, Derick Dillard, got them for her after a particularly difficult day.

“Today was another loooong day and the boys were a little extra,” Jill captioned the post. “I bawled when my hubby walked in the door with these and just hugged me and reassured me.” 

While many of Jill’s followers had sympathy, others told her to suck it up.

“Jill seems to be on the struggle bus with only two kid,” one follower commented.

Anna Duggar is also caring for six children of her own

If there’s anyone who understands taking care of kids, it’s Josh’s wife, Anna. Anna gave birth to her sixth child, Maryella Hope, on Nov. 27. And it’s clear she has her hands completely full.

While Anna noted she didn’t spend Thanksgiving with all of the Duggars, she still attended the Duggar family’s annual ugly sweater party at the big Arkansas home just five days after Maryella’s 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 her Instagram post about the event.

Now that the holidays are upon us, there’s no doubt the busy mom has to keep up with all the festivities at home, too. And fans can tell she’s tired.

“Anna looks tired, I just had my 5th and I’m tired. Tired twins…,” one follower commented on the ugly sweater post.

Anna told Jill this is one of her ‘favorite parts of the day’

Love the after nap cuddles!

Despite the hardships of parenting, Jill adores spending time with her sons at the end of the day. And she posted a photo with her 2-year-old, Samuel, cuddling with her. “Love the after nap cuddles!” she captioned the post with heart emojis.

To that, Anna added her own comment in. “One of my favorite times of the day!” she wrote. “After nap cuddles are the best.”

We’re betting Anna is getting plenty of post-nap cuddles now that she has her newborn. And considering how much Anna does in a day for her other five kids as well as Josh, we’re not surprised she loves her downtime. We’re hoping the mom of six is getting plenty of rest despite all of the holiday bustle. As for Jill, we’re hoping she takes some time for herself, too!
