Anna Duggar Throws Shade At In-Laws: I Make the Most Babies!

by at . Comments

As the wife of the notorious Josh Duggar, Anna Duggar has endured an awful lot in recent years.

Through it all, however, the beleaguered mother of five has kept a smile on her face and has never had anything but kind words for her famous in-laws.

Until now, that is ...

In a recent social media post, Anna made a comment that some Duggar fans are interpreting as subtle trash talk.

“I’m so thankful for the 5 beautiful children God has given us (+1 in heaven!). Jim Bob & Michelle have 10 grandchildren and 2 more on the way," Anna wrote.

"On Joshua’s side of the family I’m mommy to 1/2 of the grandchildren so far…and the only grand-daughters! #FunFactFriday @duggarfam.”

The "+1 in heaven" remark refers to the miscarriage Anna suffered in 2010.

Anna has discussed the loss before, referring to it as the great heartbreak of her life.

But what fans are most focused on in her latest post is the remark about how many grandchildren Anna has provided for Jim Bob and Michelle.

If you're a fan of the family, you know that with the exception of their religious beliefs, the Duggars prioritize procreation above all else.

So when Anna casually points out that she's birthed half of the Duggar grandchildren and all of Jim Bob and Michelle's granddaughters, it's hard not to see it as a boast.

It's the sort of comment that Duggar fans would normally be quick to call out, but in this case, it seems the consensus is that Anna has earned a pass.

In addition to having endured multiple Josh Duggar sex scandals, Anna is currently living a life of virtual exile as a result of her controversial decision to stand by her man.

Josh and Anna live in a separate town and they have no involvement with his family's media empire.

Josh isn't completely cut off - he currently works on a used car lot that's co-owned by his father - but he's not exactly his parents' favorite. 

Anna welcomed her fifth child back in September of 2017, but the occasion was not met with the fanfare that usually surrounds a Duggar birth.

In fact, baby Meredith became the first Duggar grandchild whose birth was not filmed.

The Duggars reasons for keeping their distance from Josh are obvious, of course.

Fans remain revolted by his actions and every time they're reminded of his continued existence, the reaction is harsh.

It's shocking that the Duggars were able to rebuild their brand following the Josh scandals, and they're not about to risk it by welcoming him back on TV.

Unfortunately for poor Anna, she's just an innocent who was dragged down by her husband's actions.

So you really can't blame her for occasionally reminding the world that she's more than just a long-suffering wife.
