So that's how they made a baby so quickly! Joy-Anna Duggar and her husband Austin Forsyth have been at the center of a premarital sex scandal over the past few months, and while having sex before marriage is not very taboo anymore in modern society, it is still a huge no-no in the Duggar family's Quiverfull religion — which is why it would be so shocking if a Duggar broke that rule. But on the season premiere of TLC's Counting On, Austin dished about the steamy details about their favorite honeymoon activity, which explains the timeline of Joy-Anna's pregnancy.
"I think I'm going to have to plead the fifth," Austin told the cameras after producers asked what was his favorite part of their honeymoon, and his wife couldn't help but laugh — so they were basically alluding to all of the sex they had on the trip.
Of course, it would make sense that the young couple couldn't keep their hands off of each other while they vacationed in Switzerland — since they were married, they were now allowed to kiss and engage in sexual intercourse without breaking a rule. It would also mark the first time they were able to spend time alone together without having a chaperone — which is a rule in the Duggar family where a couple who is courting or engaged always has to have at least one other family member with them when they go out on dates to make sure they don't give in to any temptations.
"Now that we're finally married and we don’t have a chaperone, it is a lot different," Austin explained to the cameras. "It is pretty cool that we can just go places on our own and we don't have to have someone watching us. It is pretty amazing." But Joy-Anna confessed that she kind of missed having a chaperone. "It was good for company," she said.
Joy-Anna and Austin tied the knot on May 26, 2017, and the couple just welcomed their first child on Feb. 23, 2018 — so that means they probably conceived their son Gideon within the first few days of arriving in Switzerland.
