Anna Duggar Compares the Pain of Josh’s Scandals to Childbirth
In the final episode of “Jill & Jessa: Counting On,” Anna Duggar opened up to Jessa on how she is dealing with Josh's sex scandals.
Anna told Jessa, "At one point. I was like, 'I feel like I've been in labor for like days.' It's like when you're in labor, you just make it through the next contraction and go on, and I think there's been a lot of that lately, of just taking the next step and going on.”
During the conversation, Anna teared up while visiting Jessa at the home she used to share with Josh. "It's special being here because the house is so different, and it's definitely Jessa and Ben's house, but there are a lot of fond memories of starting out here.”
She continued, "It's kind of a tender spot to go back and be in what was our starter home. There are a lot of sweet memories running through my mind. It was good to be back and remember and I guess have some time to look back. We'll see what God has in store for the future.”
Jessa also gave birth to son Spurgeon Elliot after nearly 48 hours of labor. Jessa's husband, Ben Seewald, was by her side for the painful ordeal, sharing, "As labor was ramping up, she was in pain, so I was feeling the pain, too. It was pretty difficult. I was thinking to myself, 'Hopefully the baby will come soon so this can be over.' But [labor] kept dragging on, and dragging on.”
Though Jessa has only one child so far, she is looking to add to her family. She said, "I'd love to have 15 sons!”
