Did Joy-Anna Duggar have her baby? Fans have been trying to figure out if she’s welcomed her baby yet — especially since there are rumors that claim her May wedding to her husband Austin Forsyth was rushed up from its original October due date because it was actually a shotgun wedding. Premarital sex is a huge no-no in Joy-Anna’s extremely religious Quiverfull family, which is why Duggar fans are up in arms over it, and Joy continued to fuel the rumors with a poorly-timed tribute to her hubby on Instagram.
“Austin, I’m so grateful for your sacrificial, Christ-like love. I know that through this pregnancy you’ve given and given so much to me and have never expected anything in return. Thank you for being my best friend! You are the greatest!!! I love you with all of my heart, honey!!” the 20-year-old wrote in her caption. But by choosing to praise Austin for his “sacrificial” love, she made fans think that the sacrifices she’s talking about were the kind of ones that new parents make as they adjust to parenthood.

Austin, I’m so grateful for your sacrificial, Christ-like love. I know that through this pregnancy you’ve given and given so much to me and have never expected anything in return.

“Congrats on the baby,” one confused fan wrote, and another fan tried to figure out the real reason for Joy’s tribute. “Is this post to throw the haters off? To make them think you haven’t had the baby yet? Honestly, I don’t care when you got pregnant I just hope your baby is healthy and you are happy forever,” the user commented.
But even though fans seem to be convinced that Joy is hiding important details about her pregnancy, she gave her followers a hint about when her expected due date will be. Back in October, Joy shared a rare baby bump update and in the caption, she mentioned that her baby was “the size of a bell pepper” which means she was about 18 weeks pregnant, according to Baby Center. That means her due date should be in late February or early March.
