7 Things You Didn’t Know About Anna Duggar
Anna Duggar certainly likes to keep people guessing. Every since news broke about Josh’s Ashley Madison account and his hookups with a porn star, many people have been waiting to hear from Anna, but she has kept relatively quiet. It feels like there is so much that we don’t know about her. We’re trying to rectify that. Here are 7 things you didn’t know about the ever elusive Anna Duggar!
7. Big Family
Her family isn’t quite as big as the Duggar’s family. She grew up with seven siblings. She has four older siblings and three young ones.
Like Josh, Anna was also homeschooled. She graduated when she was 16.
5. How They Met
Anna and Josh met at a Christian homeschooling convention in 2006 when she was a teenager.

4. Pro Life
Unsurprisingly, Anna is staunchly pro life. She often uses her Twitter and Intagram accounts to promote her beliefs. Sometimes, this sparks controversy, like when she used Black History Month to promote an anti-abortion message from The Radiation Foundation’s Twitter page. “Human beings should be remembered not dismembered. #BlackHistoryMonth #BlackLivesMatter #AllLivesMatter,” it read along with a poster image that said, “Because of the violence of abortion, over 16 million black people are history.”
3. Rigid Upbringing
Growing up, her family was reportedly more conservative than Josh’s. She and her siblings all had 15 minute one-on-one sessions with their mom once a week. “That was the time to share their feelings, but other than that they had to keep their feelings to themselves,” a source told People.
Sources say that Anna used to have some spunk. “She’s really fun. She was always the bossy sister, but in a fun way.”
1. Love at First Sight
She fell in love with Josh Duggar when she watched his family’s first reality show special, 14 Children and Pregnant Again! “As my family watched the video, I noticed how Joshua, then age sixteen, shared the importance of guarding his heart and waiting for someone who would really love him and wasn’t going to just get carried away with their emotions,” she wrote. “I was so excited to see another family who was brought up so similar to the way our parents were training us, but never would I have dreamed what God had in store!”
