Josh Duggar admits to infidelity, porn addiction: 'I have been the biggest hypocrite ever'

Family values evangelist and star of the reality TV show 19 Kids and Counting Josh Duggar confessed Thursday that he's the "biggest hypocrite ever" after leaked data from AshleyMadison.com showed he had two accounts on the affair-promoting website. In a statement, Duggar, a married father of four, also admitted he had a "secret addiction" to watching pornography and that he "became unfaithful" to his wife.

"I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain, and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him," Duggar wrote. "I humbly ask for your forgiveness. Please pray for my precious wife Anna and our family during this time."

In May, Duggar resigned from his position at the Family Research Council, a conservative lobbying group, after it was revealed he molested five young girls, including four of his sisters, beginning in 2002.
