The e-magazine, Daily Mail first reported the news of Josh's infidelity in 2015.
Reportedly, Josh was revealed to be a regular user of the extra-marital affair website, Ashley Madison, after the company's website got hacked.
Josh had apparently used a fake username Mr_Big_NYC, and had written in his profile:
"Looking to enjoy the finer things life has to offer. Want to find a woman who likes to be engaged socially and intellectually. No stress and no pressure."
Apparently, he had first signed up when Kristen was pregnant with her second child. It was revealed that had paid for 62 transactions.
Rejection, Wife Defends
Josh initially rejected the claims, but after detailed information was posted online, he eventually succumbed to his guilts and accepted his mistake.
Josh said in his statement to US Weekly,
'I did sign up for the site foolishly and ignorantly with a group of friends and I deeply apologize for any embarrassment or pain I have brought to my wife and family. We both look forward to moving past this and getting on with our lives.'
The Farmington born star was initially terrified of her husband, but after harsh comments started to be thrown at Josh, she came forward to defend her infidel companion.
Talking to The Daily Dish magazine, Kristen said,
"My relationship is stronger than ever and I think it's good. I think that every relationship for sure has its ups and downs whether it's marriage, dating, friendships. I've had my ups and downs with friendships too. Yeah, I think it's good and it does make you stronger."
Further, she also shut down the haters who wanted the separate the couple and demanded that Kristen should divorce her husband.
In an interview with OK magazine, she defended her husband,
"After every episode, viewers would go on Twitter and tell me to divorce my husband….I am really bummed at how he was portrayed.
People are calling him a d***** bag. He is not a d***** bag. The show made him seem much harsher than he really is."
Kristen forgave husband Josh and accepted that it could happen to anyone.
