They even regret defending him

Shelli Weinstein

The Duggar family is doing their best to move on in the wake of the revelation that oldest son Josh has been hiding a life of infidelity and sex addiction, even molesting his own sisters when he was younger.

In the latest look at TLC's upcoming special Jill & Jessa: Counting On, more of the 19 siblings tearfully speak out about how Josh's "secret life" has caused them heartache. "Everybody makes their own decisions and everybody makes their own choices, but they're not the only ones that suffer the consequences," says Jill.

Anna Duggar, Josh's wife, describes the crushing feeling of learning the truth. "I was just like, 'I'm gonna wake up and everything's gonna be okay. And this really, this can't be true," says the mother of four in the clip.

Anna Duggar speaks out about Josh's scandal for the first time

Early this summer, it was revealed that Josh Duggar had been investigatedfor inappropriately touching young girls, including his sisters when he was a teenager. Though he was never charged with a crime, speculation about the investigation saw the cancellation of the family's hit show, 19 Kids and Counting, as his parents and siblings quickly launched a defense.

Though it seems that some of the Duggar family members are having second thoughts about their actions at the time. In a clip shown on Good Morning America, Jill reveals that she regrets defending her brother in public, without knowing the whole truth. The two took spoke out on behalf of Josh on The Kelly File in June, before he was outed as a subscriber to cheating website Ashley Madison in August.

"It wasn't right for him to let us speak our words without having the full knowledge of what he was hiding," she says, choked up.
