On Friday, the Duggar's official Facebook page shared a photo of Josh, his wife, Amy, and their four children, along with an encouraging message for the former 19 Kids and Counting reality star.

"Happy birthday, Josh. We love you, your amazing wife and sweet children," read the photo caption. "We pray that you diligently follow and serve the Lord with your whole heart all the days of your life and that this year is a wonderful year for you and your family."

Josh has slowly been coming out of hiding since his scandals a few years ago. In August 2015, he checked himself into a faith-based rehab facility in Rockford, Illinois, shortly after an Ashley Madison hack led to his admission that he had been unfaithful to Anna, and that he battled a secret addiction to pornography. That scandal came to light mere months after Josh admitted to molesting five minor girls, including four of his sisters, when he was a teenager.

Despite their hardships, Anna and Josh stayed together and celebrated eight years of marriage in September. “Happy Anniversary, Josh and Anna,” the Duggar family captioned a photo of the two on Facebook at the time. “We are so thankful for God’s redemptive love in your lives.”
