Josh Duggar Admits To Cheating On Wife: 'I Have Been the Biggest Hypocrite Ever'

Josh Duggar has confessed to cheating on his wife just one day after his name was among the millions of users of affair website Ashley Madison.

In a statement released by the family, Josh admits to being unfaithful to his wife, watching pornography and facing a "secret addiction."

This comes after TLC recently cancelled the '19 Kids and Counting' star and his family's reality series after charges of molestation and fondled of young girls surfaced in a police report.

"I have been the biggest hypocrite ever," Josh says in a statement. "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."

"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."

"I brought hurt and a reproach to my family, close friends and the fans of our show with my actions that happened when I was 14-15 years old, and now I have re-broken their trust."

"The last few years, while publicly stating I was fighting against immorality in our country, I was hiding my own personal failings. As I am learning the hard way, we have the freedom to choose to our actions, but we do not get to choose our consequences. I deeply regret all hurt I have caused so many by being such a bad example."

"I humbly ask for your forgiveness. Please pray for my precious wife Anna and our family during this time."

Duggar didn't address whether he had used the website or the exact nature of his infidelity. The admission comes a month after the birth of his fourth child with wife Anna.

In an accompanying statement, parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar say: "When we learned of this late last night our hearts were broken."
