Is he changed man?
It’s been almost three years since it was uncovered that Josh Duggar, the oldest child in the 19 Kids and Counting clan, had inappropriately touched some of his younger sisters during his teenage years. After TLC had canceled the family’s show amid the shocking discovery, the disgraced son has been living a relatively quite life to stay out of the public spotlight.
However, it seems a lot has changed since the world learned of his dark past. As seen in newly surfaced photos, the father-of-five is looking almost unrecognizable these days!
It’s been almost three years since it was uncovered that Josh Duggar, the oldest child in the famous 19 Kids and Counting clan, had previously molested his younger sisters during his teenage years. Though the 30-year-old has been living a relatively quite life to maintain a low profile, it seems he still can’t get away from the camera.
Apparently, a lot has changed since the world learned of Josh’s dark history. In newly surfaced photos, the father-of-five looks almost unrecognizable compared to his TLC days!
Once a clean-shaven man, Josh was pictured sporting scruffy facial hair in recent photos from a family trip to Waco, Texas shared by his wife, Anna Duggar. In the pictures, the former reality star looked more unkempt than his past put-together self, rocking shorts and Crocs sandals.
Fans were completely floored by how far the dad has come since his show went off the air. Not only did some comment on Reddit about how “terrible” he looked these days, but many pointed out that he had gained a significant amount of weight since the molestation scandal broke.
“He looks greasy like he needs a shower and disinfectant,” user @alundi wrote. Meanwhile @sjiuodjuks added, “And like he spends his days at a computer watching porn and drinking cheap beer wearing a stained wife-beater, eating Cheetos.”
“Christ he’s stacked it on, hasn’t he. He looks much older than what he is,” @coincarpenter remarked.
Redditor @girlychica111 went as for far as the speculate the apparent weight gain had to do with Josh’s struggle with addiction, writing:
He looks like a bloated, full blown alcoholic. Hope the extra pounds diminished his sex appeal in his own mind. Gag. Keep fattening him up Anna, he looks worse and that’s not saying much. Sex addiction turned to food addiction is my only hope, addicts usually find another addiction.
In a video shared in March, the disgraced dad was seen kissing his wife as he celebrated his 30th birthday.
“Happy Birthday Josh!” Anna wrote on Instagram. “I’m so thankful for the 30 years of life God has given you – I love you!”
