Anna Duggar Had Quite the Scare Losing Her 2-Year-Old in Los Angeles

Oh man, we feel for this mama! Josh and Anna Duggar are on a family vacation in Los Angeles right now, visiting with his sister, Jinger (Duggar) and her husband, Jeremy Vuolo. They traveled with Josh's parents and a large amount of his siblings, and everyone knows family "vacations" are usually more crazy than they are relaxed. That is probably why Anna reportedly lost track of her 2-year-old son, Mason, while they were all out at a museum.

  • Anna posted about the trip to the Autry Museum on Instagram, but apparently she had a mom scare while she was there.

    An eyewitness told Radar Online that about an hour into their visit, Anna started frantically asking, "Where's Mason? Where's Mason?" Mason is Josh and Anna's fifth child, behind Mykenzie, 10, Michael, 8, Marcus, 6, and Meredith, 4. She's expecting their sixth child next month.

    Apparently, Anna thought that Mason was with her eldest daughter and her aunts, who happen to be around the same age. She reportedly asked them in a panic, "You guys were supposed to be watching him! Where is he?"

    Anna began "circling around the maze of exhibits for two minutes" before Jinger came to the rescue from another room, telling her overwhelmed sister-in-law, "It's OK, Anna, I found him! He's here with us."

  • The most concerning part of the story seems to be Josh's lack of concern, though. 

    Mason's dad was in another area of the museum with his own father, Jim Bob Duggar, and some of the other Duggar boys. Because apparently girls and boys must always be separated. Anyway, the source reported that Josh was "oblivious" to the drama.

    They stated, "Anna has a lot she's dealing with and it doesn't seem Josh has her back. She has to rely on other family members to watch her kids and she's got another one on the way ... I don't know how Anna deals with it."

  • Anna opened up about her marriage just last month, on their 11th wedding anniversary.

    She added the caption, "11 years ago, before God, our family and friends we said, 'I do!' -- and my how the past 11 years have flown by! The joys we've experienced together have far surpassed the shadows of sorrow we've walked through. Through it all, God’s kindness and grace has sustained us."

    In case anyone needs a brief refresher, Josh spent seven months in rehab for alleged sex addiction in 2015, after multiple sex scandals about him broke, including that he had molested his sisters as a teenager and used Ashley Madison to cheat on Anna. It's been a rough road for Anna, to say the least.

  • We can't fix Josh and Anna's marriage, but we can be glad she found this little guy without too much fuss. 

    It happens to every mom at some point or another, and thankfully, it almost always turns out fine. Anna definitely has a lot on her plate at the moment, not just with the kids, but apparently dealing with Josh too. We hope he steps up when their baby girl is born next month, but for some reason, we're not holding our breath.
