Abby Hensel's husband hit with paternity claims

On April 1st, 2024, the NY Post learned that Joshua Bowling is in serious trouble after his ex-wife, Annica Bowling, aged 33, filed a paternity case against him. According to court documents, Joshua and Annica have a daughter named Isabella. The couple, who got married in 2010, share joint custody of their eight-year-old daughter.

Previously, Isabella was the only daughter listed for the former couple. However, they separated in April 2019, and Annica had another daughter born in late 2020. It's now possible the paternity of the second daughter is in question. The court documents don’t make it clear as the daughter is a minor.
