The couple took to their ‘Chrisley Confessions Podcast’ to address their listeners and touch on what is going on in their lives. Although they couldn’t go in much detail, they did acknowledge their current legal issues. “It has been a whirlwind,” Todd said. “Yes, it has,” Julie chimed in. “Lots of moving parts, lots of things going on in our lives and a lot of seeing God’s movements right now,” Todd continued. “So, I know all of you guys are wanting to know every detail that is going on in our lives and I have to ask that you respect that we’re not allowed to talk about it at the present time. There will come a time to where all of it is discussed.”

The Chrisleys did end up sharing some details about how their family is dealing with everything that is going on. “It’s a very sad, heartbreaking time for our family right now but we still hold steadfast in our faith, and we trust that God will do what he does best because Gods a miracle worker and that’s what we’re holding out for,” Todd said.

When discussing their children, Todd made it clear that they were still trying to process it all. “The kids are all doing as best as they can,” Todd said. “A lot of tears, a lot of heartache, a lot of sorrow, a lot of trying to understand how this is where we are right now.” The couple shares three children together and two from Todd’s previous marriage.

“We appreciate all of the support that we have received from everyone,” Julie went on to say. Todd echoed those same sentiments. “We are receiving tens of thousands of messages every day, from mail, to gifts being delivered to our homes, to people delivering food, to people driving from all over the country to bring flowers to our front door. It’s the love that is spread so far throughout this country for our family is what’s truly helping us to get up each day. It’s a tough time right now but we are grateful for each and every one of you.”

This is the first time Todd and Julie have spoken out since being found guilty on tax evasion and bank fraud by a federal jury earlier this month in Atlanta. The “Chrisley Knows Best” stars each face up to 30 years in prison.
