Anna Duggar is due to give birth to her and Josh Duggar’s seventh child sometime this fall. Her pregnancy comes at a difficult time as the eldest son of the former “19 Kids and Counting” clan is facing federal charges of receiving and possessing sexually explicit photos of children under the age of 12. 

In a recent video provided by 40/29 News, Josh and Anna were shown together coming out of a courtroom in Fayetteville, Arkansas. There had been rumors flying that the expectant mom is standing by her man through all of this and that she also believed that he is innocent. It most certainly appears to be true, according to what is seen in the clip.

The couple held hands and were all smiles, at least in front of the cameras and reporters. They appeared to be escorted out by Josh’s attorneys.

Anna looks like she is due about any day now. She is seen wearing a pink dress with her swollen belly clearly showing. She walked side-by-side with her controversial husband holding his hand as they both smiled and looking happy and relaxed.

Where Has Anna Been Lately?

The former TLC star has not been seen since the news of Josh’s arrest in April broke, just days after they announced via Instagram that they were expecting baby No. 7. The clip featured Josh and Anna standing underneath an umbrella as pink confetti splattered over their heads. 

Yes, they are having another girl. The video also revealed their six other children, Mackynzie, 11, Michael, 10, Marcus, 8, Meredith, 6, Mason, 4, and Maryella, 22 months, running through the field towards the camera. The family looked quite happy at that time.

Then the arrest happened a few days later. Josh was released not too long after that to await his trial, but not to the home that he shares with his family. He is supposedly living with a couple that Jim Bob Duggar knows. The fallen reality star is allowed to see his kids, but only if supervised by his wife. However, he is not to be around any other minors.

Anna has since kept off social media and out of the spotlight. No one seemed to know for sure whether she was indeed sticking by her husband's side or what. Now this video that has emerged pretty much confirms that she is indeed fully supporting Josh through this ordeal.

It’s likely that Anna will already have given birth to their new daughter when Josh’s trial begins on November 30. She sure has her hands full these days.

What Is Going On With Josh’s Trial?

Josh’s trial date was originally set for July but has since been postponed to the end of November after his defense team argued that they needed more time to go over all the evidence. His lawyers have been doing their best to get the pornography charges dropped, but have been unsuccessful so far.

A judge reportedly dismissed four out of five motions to have the charges against Josh dropped. If convicted, he could spend up to 40 years in prison and he faces $250,000 in fines. If that should happen, that would leave Anna in a pickle being left with seven children to raise on her own.

With Josh's recent legal troubles came the cancellation of TLC's "Counting On." That seemed to be the last straw for the network as they decided to break ties with the Duggar family, at least for now. Who knows what will happen in the future.
