Playing EXCLUSIVE: Josh and Anna Duggar Hide Out in Mountain Home as Family Avoids Public Eye

It appears the Duggar family is laying low in the wake of Josh Duggar's admission to infidelity.

A source tells ET exclusively that the former 19 Kids and Counting star and his wife Anna are staying at a farm house in the mountains of Arkansas after it was revealed that Josh had two Ashley Madison accounts and he admitted to being "unfaithful" to his wife.

It appears that Anna is continuing to stand by her husband even though her brother Daniel publicly slammed Josh. "I won't stop trying to get that pig out of our family," Daniel wrote on Facebook, adding: "I have been thinking of her and sick to my stomach for her for last few days."

The rest of the Duggars are staying out of the public eye as well. The family has reportedly been keeping behind closed doors at their home in Springdale, Arkansas. However, ET did obtain photos of Josh’s mother, Michelle, when she was spotted peeking out the front door of the compound.

Most of the Duggars even missed a Sunday service at Cross Church, where they regularly attend.

Senior pastor, Ronnie Floyd, delivered a sermon focused on infidelity on Sunday, possibly in reference to the controversy surrounding the church's famous parishioners. The pastor's message was streamed live online, and promoted by Jessa Seewald, who still attended the service with her husband Ben. The couple has a deep connection to the church, having gotten married there in June 2014.

According to a source, Josh has not visited his family at their homes in days, and has been keeping a low profile as he and his wife stay sequestered in the mountain house, which was purchased for $55,000.

His sister Jessa currently resides at one of the homes associated with Josh's Ashley Madison accounts.

This past week news broke that Josh, 27, had two separate accounts with the Ashley Madison site, whose stated purpose is to help married people find partners to have affairs with. He later admitted to being "the biggest hypocrite ever" to his wife in an open statement to the media.
