Following his alarming arrest in April 2021, Josh Duggar has been under the custody of Lacount and Maria Reber. As per InTouchWeekly, they are close friends with the Duggar family. Till his hearings take place, the arrestee can’t be left alone with his kids. However, there is one exception to this condition. His wife Anna needs to be present during the time he spends time with his children. Despite this advantage, it looks like the father was not present for the birth of his 7th child.
This is because there have been no court filings for the felon to attend the abovementioned event. There is another possibility that his wife gave birth at home.
