MACKYNZIE Duggar has been captured enjoying a day out amid her family’s turbulent several months.
InstagramJosh and Anna Duggar’s oldest child Mackynzie was spotted out at a bowling alley with another branch of the family in a new post[/caption]
Instagram/hilaryspiveyThe 13-year-old was described by her uncle’s mother-in-law, Hilary Spivey, as ‘sweet’ and ‘mature’ after one fan commented on the rarely-seen Counting On grandchild[/caption]
Hilary’s oldest daughter, Claire Yvonne, 22, married Mackynzie’s uncle, Justin Duggar, 20, in 2021.
In the photo, the group of teens and younger kids paused for a quick photo while at a bowling alley.
Mackynzie stood in the center of the group in aknee-length dress, and had her arms around the girls on either side of her.
Hilary captioned the post: “Wrapped up an awesome week of vacation Bible school, and celebrated Paige’s 17th at the same time!”
In response, one of Hilary’s social media followers wrote: “Beautiful pictures. May they always be blessed.
“Is that Josh and Anna’s daughter in the pink. She is growing up, beautiful young lady very like her mama.”
Hilary responded: “Yes!! She has matured so much recently! A sweet young lady!”
One TLC fan reposted the image and asked: “Is that makenzie [sic]? Maybe staying with the Spiveys?”
“If the story about Anna getting kicked out is true, maybe she and the M’s are staying with the Spiveys in Texas? Hilary is obsessed with the Duggar family, I wouldn’t be surprised if she took them in,” responded another.
Previously, Anna had been living in a warehouse on family leaders Jim Bob and Michelle’s Arkansas compound with the seven children she shares with Josh, who is currently serving a 151-month sentence for child pornography.
Last month, however, The U.S Sun reported that Anna and her children had been “kicked out” of the home after an argument with her parents-in-law.
A source told The U.S. Sun: “Jim Bob made Anna move out of the warehouse on his property a month and a half ago.
“They got into an argument. She’s been in Texas visiting Josh.”
The U.S. Sun previously reported that there was tension between Anna and Jim Bob at Josh’s sentencing in May 2022.
Josh and Anna got married on September 26, 2008.
They have seven children together: Mackynzie, Michael, Marcus, Meredith, Mason, Maryella, and Madyson.
Josh and Anna are still together despite his suspected infidelities, molestation accusations, and child pornography conviction.
In April 2021, Duggar was arrested and charged with receiving and possessing child pornography.
