Josh Duggar may try for another child to save his marriage, In Touch reports.

One source close to the disgraced 19 Kids and Counting star says Josh is willing to do anything to save his marriage and to redeem himself in the public eye.

These efforts include asking Anna to have another baby with him and asking his father Jim Bob to offer Anna a new house. The house is a sprawling wide mansion that is just ten minutes away from the Duggar family estate in Springdale, Arkansas.

How Anna Duggar sees all this is doubtful, but previous reports show that she has repeatedly turned down various offers, including the offer of the new house from her father-in-law. Sources near the reality TV star say that she is only interested in true healing and doesn't care a bit about image or redeeming the Duggar family name.

It can be recalled that the eldest Duggar son, Josh, suffered a major publicity fall when news about his sordid past came to light. It was revealed that the official Duggar blacksheep had sexually molested his own two sisters - Jill and Jessa - along with three other underage girls. His subscription to adultery-pandering website Ashley Madison was also exposed and so were the crude details of his erstwhile sexual relationship with two porn stars.

Josh and Anna are parents to Mackynzie, 6, Michael, 4, Marcus, 2, and Meredith, 4 months. The report mentions that being a single mom to four children while her husband is locked away in rehab is not exactly motivating Anna to want to try for a fifth child with her straying husband.

Meanwhile, Entertainment T onight reports that the Duggars may have secretly removed Josh from the rehab facility to have him home during the Thanksgiving holidays.

Witnesses say that the plane was on the ground in Illinois near the facility for several hours before taking off for Springdale, Arkansas.

If this is true, then Josh's appearance during Thanksgiving in the new Duggar special "Counting On" is sure to garner high ratings.

Josh has previously checked into a faith-based rehab center in August, a facility that reportedly committed volunteers to 50-hour work program per week and 36-hour per week Bible studies.
