Just a couple months after a molestation scandal marred his squeaky clean image, Josh Duggar publicly admitted Thursday to cheating on his wife, Anna Duggar, and called himself "the biggest hypocrite ever."

The eldest Duggar sibling’s infidelities came out a day earlier when his information was found in the massive AshleyMadison.com data hack, revealing that the one-time lobbyist with the Family Research Council had not one, but two paid accounts on the cheaters website.

In a statement published on the Duggar Family website Thursday, People magazine said Josh Duggar and his parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, expressed their devastation over Josh's actions. The statement was later taken down.

"When we learned of this late last night our hearts were broken. As we continue to place our trust in God we ask for your prayers for Josh, Anna, our grandchildren and our entire family," Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar wrote.

Josh Duggar was more forthright about the situation, addressing both his infidelities and the 2006 molestation case that resulted in the family's TLC show “19 Kids and Counting” being canceled.

"I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. 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," he wrote, as reported by People.

"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,” the statement continued. "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."

Josh, 27, and Anna Duggar, who were married in 2008, have four children together.

Online, many responded with anger to the latest Duggar scandals:
