FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Anna Duggar is speaking out about the moment she learned about her husband’s secret life.

In August 2015, Josh Duggar admitted to being unfaithful to his wife and having a secret porn addiction after he was exposed in the Ashley Madison leak.

“I have been the biggest hypocrite ever,” Josh said in a statement on his family’s website. “While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife.”

In a video promoting TLC’s upcoming show Jill & Jessa: Counting On, Anna opens up about the moment she first heard the news of her husband’s secret life.

“I was just like, ‘I’m gonna wake up and everything’s gonna be okay. And this really, this can’t be true,’ ” Anna said.

Josh and Anna Duggar, both 27, have been married since 2008.

They have four children together: Mackynzie, 5, Michael, 4, Marcus, 2, and Meredith Grace, 1 month.

Jill & Jessa: Counting On premiers Sunday at 7 p.m. CT on TLC.
