Josh Duggar is the oldest child of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar. He and his fundamentalist Christian family were featured on TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting before it was canceled following multiple scandals surrounding Josh. He never appeared on the spin-off series, Counting On, although the rest of his family did.

The 19 Duggar children were raised in a highly conservative, religious manner. Their upbringing included homeschooling, strict rules about modesty and gender roles, and limited access to the internet and mainstream media. Like many in their religious circle, the Duggars also practiced courtships, or chaperoned dating with the intent of marriage.

Duggar married Anna Keller in September 2008. They’ve since welcomed six children: Mackynzie, Michael, Marcus, Meredith, Mason, Maryella, and Madyson. In December 2021, Duggar was found guilty on two counts of child pornography.
