Before Josh courted Duggar and married Anna, he was with a young woman named Kaeleigh Holt. Kaeleigh is now married and has a family of her own. Fans may not know much about Kaeleigh and Josh’s relationship, but the details came to light recently during his child porn trial, in which he was found guilty.
Prior to Josh’s trial, during a hearing, both Jim Bob Duggar and Bobye Holt were called to testify. This was about his molestation scandal. The prosecution hoped to use Josh’s assaults as evidence of motive. If Josh has harassed his sisters and downloaded child porn, it shows there is a pattern. It wasn’t done by accident.
When Jim Bob testified, however, he claimed to have forgotten some details of Josh’s confession. Bobye, on the other hand, did remember what Josh confessed to her when he was just a teenager.
When Bobye testified at the actual trial, she shared what had happened years ago. Josh was “engaged” to Bobye’s daughter, Kaeleigh, and the two were dating. While they were courting, Josh confessed to his parents what he had done to four of his younger sisters. At that point, according to Bobye’s testimony, she and her husband spoke to Jim Bob, Michelle and Josh, as this led to the courtship coming to an end.
This is what revealed Josh’s first courtship. Kaeleigh was previously on a TLC special with the Duggar family, 16 kids and moving. Now she has something to say about Josh and all the attention that came from the process.
Josh Duggar’s ex-girlfriend Kaeleigh Tull speaks out.
In a series of Instagram stories, Kaeleigh shared what she feels amid Josh’s sentencing, according to The Ashley’s Reality Roundup. In her stories, she said, “I try to keep parts of my past more private and just talk about my life now. But I feel like what happened over the past week has forced me to say things and talk about them.” Many of you who are here know that my family grew up with the Duggars and we were inseparable at one point.
She continued: “So when my mother was asked how she got the information she testified, she had to tell the truth. That brought my past to light. Not that I’m trying to hide it. My best friends know, but I didn’t really want it to air everywhere, but it sort of happened without me really pursuing it. So I felt like I had to talk about it, and that’s okay. I’m not ashamed of it.”
Finally, she admitted that she wanted some privacy. She said: “I’m going to keep a big part of my life private. I’m going to keep my kids’ lives private. And I’m trying not to really get into my thoughts… now I feel like I need to be more careful be with what I say and be more discreet to preserve my family’s privacy.’
