Megyn Kelly to Interview Duggar Parents About Molestation Allegations
Kelly's Fox News interview will be the first public appearance the Duggar parents have made since news of Josh Duggar's alleged molestations surfaced.
Fox News Channel's Megyn Kelly will interview Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar Wednesday night in an exclusive sit-down interview to discuss their son's molestation allegations and the recent controversy surrounding the 19 Kids and Counting family.
The 19 Kids parents announced in a statement on their family website Saturday that the news anchor will interview them and they will "share their hearts."
"Next week we will sit down with Megyn Kelly on Fox News to share our hearts with you about the pain that we walked through as a family twelve years ago, the tears we all shed and the forgiveness that was given. We appreciate the outpouring of love and prayers for our family at this time," they posted in a joint statement.
In a statement released by Fox, the network said Kelly will speak with the Duggar parents about molestation allegations brought against their oldest son, Josh Duggar, which occurred 12 years ago. According to a 2006 police report published by In Touch, Josh Duggar, now a married 27-year-old with three children, sexually molested five girls as far back as 2002, when Duggar was 14 years old. Duggar's own sisters were among the alleged victims.
The interview will take place at the Duggar family home in Arkansas, and additional portions will air during a one-hour Kelly File special on Friday, June 5 at 9 p.m. ET.
The exclusive sit-down interview will air Wednesday, June 3 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox News' The Kelly File.
