Data released in the hack on Ashley Madison's servers seem to show that family activist and former TLC reality star Josh Duggar has held not one, but two different monthly subscriptions for the site, which connects individuals who are married or in committed relationships in order to have extramarital affairs.

Gawker reports that the leaked information lists a credit card belonging to a Joshua J. Duggar paying a total of $986.76 for two different accounts from February of 2013 through May of 2015. According to the account information, Duggar had been paying the website to find a partner for one-night stands, "sharing fantasies" and a "bubble bath for 2," among other acts that go above and beyond simple cuddling.

The second account, opened in July 14, even paid an initial $250 fee that appears to have been for an "affair guarantee."

While the birth date listed for Duggar's first account is February 3, 1988, a month shy of the 19 Kids and Counting star's actual birthday of March 3, the account's address matches that of Duggar's grandmother Mary in Arkansas, and his middle name is, in fact James.

Back in May, Josh, the eldest of the Duggar children, released a statement admitting to "wrongdoing" afterIn Touch Weekly uncovered a 33-page police report stating that he has a history of molesting, sexually assaulting and "forcibly fondling" young girls, including his sisters.

"Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends," Josh said in his statement. "I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life."

TLC ultimately canceled the family's reality show. Duggar, who is married and has four children, resigned from the lobbying arm of the Family Research Council in May.

Request for comment from Duggar's attorney was not immediately answered. TLC's parent company, Discovery Networks, had no comment. There is currently no official statement from the Duggar family.
