Anna Duggar posted a rather cryptic message in the days before word of Josh Duggar's sexual molestation scandal broke, prompting some to wonder if the 19 Kids and Counting daughter-in-law knew her husband's cover was about to be blown.

Us Weekly says in a new report that it was just a week ago when Anna Duggar posted a message on Instragram that didn't seem relevant at the time, but since learning that Josh Duggar sexually molested five underage females when he was a teenager--four of those girls being his own sisters--it seems perfectly relevant now.

Anna Duggar didn't caption the post. She simply put it out there for her followers to see.

See if this doesn't appear like she knew her husband's silence was about to be forever broken.

Since Josh Duggar's sexual molestation bombshell broke, Anna Duggar has defended her husband. She shared her own statement with People magazine.

“I can imagine the shock many of you are going through reading this. I remember feeling that same shock,” she said. “When my family and I first visited the Duggar home, Josh shared his past teenage mistakes. I was surprised at his openness and humility and at the same time didn’t know why he was sharing it. For Josh, he wanted not just me but my parents to know who he really was–even very difficult past mistakes.”

Josh and Anna Duggar have closed down their website in the wake of his sexual molestation scandal, too. Josh Duggar has resigned from his job in Washington, D.C. with the Family Research Council.

Do you think Josh and Anna Duggar were given a few days' heads up that his past was coming back to haunt the entire 19 Kids and Counting family?

Since then much speculation has arisen that Jana Duggar, Jill Duggar Dillard, Jessa Duggar Seewald, and Jinger Duggar might be the four siblings Josh Duggar molested.

How must Anna Duggar truly feel about what her husband did--even thought it was many years ago?

Josh and Anna Duggar have three children. She is pregnant with their fourth.
