Pregnancy rumors won't stop swirling on the Duggar ladies. Apart from Jill Duggar, there are also reports that her sister-in-law, Anna Duggar is also pregnant. 

According to Christian Post, 2016 might be the "year of redemption" from the Duggar clan, who experienced a rather tumultuous and difficult 2015, culminating in the loss of their TV show, "19 Kids and Counting." Their saving grace this year will be Anna's pregnancy, considering all the troubles started because of Josh's controversial actions. 

Despite all the rumors, the family refuse to deny nor confirm these. Instead, they continue to assure their fans that they are doing fine with the help of God. Anna for one, released a statement through the blog, saying that she is doing fine and wishes fans to continue praying for her, Josh, and their children. 

It was in that statement that people started to speculate that she might be pregnant since she visited Josh on rehab. 

"Many have asked how I am doing. So many have asked that it's actually humbling and touching. 2015 was the most difficult year of my life. Yet, amazingly I've found that in my own life crisis God has drawn near to me ("He's near to the brokenhearted" Psalms 34:18) and my faith has been more precious to me than ever before. Just recently I visited Josh. It was an important step on a long difficult road. I want to thank all of you for your prayers and your messages of hope," she said. 

Before the year ended last year, Hollywood Life reported that Anna did not show any anger or resentment towards Josh at all, even if she was cheated on.  It was revealed that Josh has an account on Ashley Madison, a site that promotes extramarital affairs and even engaged in paid sex sessions with porn start, Danica Dillon. 

"Anna wants to keep her family together and has decided to stay with Josh and make their marriage work," an insider told Hollywood Life. "She told Josh that she forgives him and believes in him. This is a huge deal, because she was seriously about to pull the plug on the relationship. Needless to say, Josh is beyond elated with the news. He vowed to help Anna rebuild her trust in him."

Anna reportedly made sure Josh did not have a lonely Christmas by visiting him on rehab through the family's private plane. A source told People magazine that everyone spent the holidays in a positive mood. "Everyone just had fun and seemed to be high spirits, including Anna," the source shared.
