“Counting On” star Josh Duggar has resurfaced on social media for the first time in months. Duggar’s car dealership business in Arkansas was the focus of a raid by Homeland Security in November. The details of the operation and the reason for it are still unclear, but Duggar had not been seen on social media since.
On Sunday, he reappeared in an Instagram post from his wife, Anna, featuring their whole family.
“Happy Sunday! ‘I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.’ Psalm 122:1,” she captioned the image.
Fans flocked to the comments. “Beautiful family! Thank God for restoration! What a blessed legacy your family is leaving. May God continue to bless all of you Duggar’s! I’m grateful for your example. Love y’all,” one wrote.
“Thanks for your sweet words! I’m so thankful for Jesus and the redemption He offers each of us by His death & resurrection!” Anna replied.
“Your family is beautiful! Anna, you are such a good momma, good wife, and above all, good Christian. You inspire me everyday. Just wanted you to know what a blessing you are to me!” another fan wrote.
“I don’t know how you do it. Being an awesome mom with 6 kids!! I get overwhelmed and tired with 3. Yall look lovely,” a third gushed.
The Duggar family has continued to deny that a Homeland Security raid ever happened at all.
“We were shocked to see a news report today state that our home was raided by federal law enforcement agencies. This is not true. To the best of our knowledge, it’s also not true that any member of our family is the target of any investigation of any kind,” the Duggar family said in a statement.
“Living a life in the public’s eye has taught us that it is best not to reply to every rumor and piece of ‘fake news’ that is circulated online,” the family’s statement continued. “It would be a full-time job if we attempted to do so. However, because of tonight’s media coverage we thought it is important to address this rumor with you. Thank you for the love and support that we can always count on in you our fans and friends.”
A Homeland Security spokesperson confirmed in November, however, that a raid did in fact occur.
