ANNA Duggar has made a rare social media appearance to wish her sister Priscilla a happy birthday.
It’s one of the few times Anna has been seen online since her husband Josh was convicted of child porn.
On Sunday, Anna shared a photo of her and her smiling sister on her Instagram stories.
She added the caption, “Happy Birthday, Priscilla!” and nothing else.
The former Counting On star has been largely silent on social media since Josh was sent to jail.
She resurfaced in late June to make a special note about her 34th birthday, and was immediately criticized by fans.
In another Instagram story, she invoked her convicted husband when she shared, “Officially 34”, then continued with “Fourteen years since I said ‘yes’.”
Counting On fans jumped to the comment section and criticized the former TLC star for being “insane.”
In May, Josh was sentenced to 12 years in prison after being found guilty of child pornography charges.
One critic said: “She’s too ashamed to be associated with a literal creep like him. Either that or she doesn’t want to face the reality that he’s in jail.”
Another critic added: “She’s really delusional and I’m so worried about her kids.”
A third critic wrote: “I will never understand. She should be furious, if only at the situation he created for her and the children.”
Arkansas Judge Timothy L. Brooks sentenced the oldest Duggar child to more than 12 years in prison in May.
The judge called his crimes “the sickest of the sick” in front of a packed courtroom.
He told Josh, “You’ve done really bad things. But in your life as a whole, you’ve done good things. The real test of a man’s character is what a man does when no one is looking.”
The Sun obtained photos and videos of his wife as she fled the courtroom.
Anna had a grim look on her face when she heard the news that the father of her seven children was behind bars.
The Sun previously reported that he will serve his child pornography sentence at FCI Seagoville in Dallas, Texas.
Anna should have no problem sticking to the dress code, as the modest dresser shouldn’t wear short skirts and dresses, crop tops, low necklines and more revealing clothes.
The facility is poorly secured, housing 1,751 inmates in the detention center and satellite camp, according to the Bureau of Federal Prisons.
Seagoville has a Sex Offender Management Program (SOMP) and in 2018 it was estimated that about 40% of the inmates there were sex offenders.
But the married couple won’t be able to get too close.
Last week, The Sun revealed exclusively that Josh cannot have conjugal visits with his devoted 34-year-old wife.
According to the Bureau of Federal Prisons website, conjugal visits are “not allowed inside a BOP facility.”
Josh is limited to just four hours of visits per month, although more can be requested.
According to BOP, “handshakes, hugs and kisses (in good taste)” are allowed at the beginning and end of a visit.
