Maryella’s name followed suit with the “M” theme. But it also has a special connection with Josh’s family. “When Joshu2019s grandma passed away, we considered the name Mary, but we were hesitant because Grandma (Mary Duggar) was such a special lady and we wanted our daughteru2019s name to be a reminder of how special Grandma was and carry on her legacy …,” Anna wrote on Instagram. “As we continued chatting about names, Josh and I both fell in love with the name Maryella! We chose Hope for her middle name because of the Hope we have because of Jesusu2019 life, death, and resurrection.”

Now that a few of Josh Duggar’s kids are old enough to possibly know what’s going on with their father, Duggar family critics worry. Police arrested Josh on suspicion of obtaining child sexual abuse content — a potentially serious crime that could majorly affect Josh’s standing with his family. Currently, Josh can only visit his kids with Anna present. And recent reports note Anna continues to spend time with Josh at his guardian’s house as she allows her side of the family to care for her six children.

“Heu2019s been gone before, and I hate to say it, but she may see it as normal,” another Reddit user guessed. “All sheu2019s known has been hushed chaos and Dad goes away for awhile.”

“There’s no way these kids will have a healthy relationship with their parents once they discover the whole story,” another Duggar family critic wrote.

nnnn

Josh’s trial is currently delayed for November 2021.
