Check this out. Our mom is so much fun! We had a blast skating together yesterday. Check it out. Her skills are mad! She out-skated the whole place?backwards! JingerPosted by Duggar Family Official on Wednesday, July 22, 2015
Michelle Duggar is a roller skating queen!
In a video posted this week on the Duggar family's Facebook page, the 48-year-old 19 Kids and Counting matriarch is seen racing around a rink effortlessly, backwards and forwards, as the Village People's hit 1978 disco song "Y.M.C.A." plays.
The clip was posted days after TLC canceled the reality show, almost two months following revelations her and husband Jim Bob Duggar's eldest son Josh Duggar, 27, had years ago molested five underage girls, including two of his sisters, Jill Duggar, now 24, and Jessa Duggar, now 22. He was never charged with a crime and had apologized for acting "inexcusably."
Michelle's family shared photos of their day at the roller skating rink on Instagram, which show her with more of her and Jim Bob's daughters, including their youngest child, Josie Duggar, 5.
"Check this out. Our mom is so much fun!" daughter Jinger Duggar, 21, wrote on Facebook. "We had a blast skating together yesterday. Check it out. Her skills are mad! She out-skated the whole place…backwards!"
Michelle had also showed off her mad skills on a season 2 episode of 18 Kids and Counting, titled "Duggars on Wheels," back in 2009. She and husband Jim Bob Duggar had thrown son Jason Duggar a birthday party. On the episode, she wore a similar outfit to the one seen in the recent Facebook video—a pink shirt and black maxi skirt. On the show, her top is a polo shirt with thin white stripes.
She had said on the show she used to be on a speed skating team years ago and would go to the rink every week.
"My children like to skate around the house and I have done that a few times but I'm usually pregnant," Michelle added. "And so, I don't roller skate when I'm pregnant and then I'm usually nursing a baby and I just don't have the energy by the end of the day. So, I probably should do it more 'cause it really is good exercise."
"I knew she did roller skate when she was, you know, back then, but I didn't know she could roller skate that good," Jason said.
