Reality TV star Josh Duggar, co-star of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting, has checked himself into rehab a week after admitting he was “the biggest hypocrite ever” because he has been addicted to pornography and has been “unfaithful” to his wife Anna, according to a statement posted Wednesday on the Duggar family’s website.

The admission came amid reports that the former executive director for the conservative lobbying group Family Research Council had an account on hacked extramarital affairs website Ashley Madison.
