Aww! Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth's son, Gideon Martyn, is only a few weeks old, but he already has so much love for his dad!

On a special webisode that aired on Monday, March 19, fans watched as Joy-Anna's home birth quickly took a turn for the worse. Joy and Austin revealed that the baby was breech, and after 20 hours of labor, she sped off to the hospital for an emergency cesarean section.
"I decided to have a home birth, just because I know that it's more comfortable being at home," Joy, 20, explained. "I really wanted to at least try it, and we're only about 30 minutes from the hospital, so it's not too bad in case of an emergency or a change of plans. [I'm feeling] somewhat nervous, trying not to be scared, but just prepared. I know that it's going to painful, there's going to be a lot of emotions, but I know Austin is going to be there to support me."
Prior to the birth, however, her pregnancy was a breeze. "I think going through this pregnancy for me has been good," she said. "I haven’t really had morning sickness, not a lot of food aversions, so that's a blessing. But at the same time, I think it has been somewhat challenging just because there are a lot of new emotions and hormones and things that I've never had before. Austin's been very gracious with me, because I feel like I've been on an emotional roller coaster and he's supported me and encouraged me."
"You've done amazing," Austin, 24, reassured her.
The Forsyth's have already revealed a lot of info about their son online — like how they got his adorable name. "We chose Gideon because it's a strong biblical name and was someone who was willing to follow the lord, and he was a strong leader," explained Austin, who also revealed that his middle name, Martyn, was his own middle name, too! We can't wait to see even more pictures.
