For weeks, fans have speculated whether or not Joy-Anna Duggar and her hubby of six months, Austin Forsyth, got pregnant before saying “I do,” and now, a Duggar family friend is putting those rumors to rest. This “friend” — who chose to remain anonymous — simply said that it’s “not likely” the Counting On stars conceived before their vows. So there you have it?
The mom-to-be hasn’t posted many photos of her growing bump, but she recently shared a new full photo of herself in honor of Veteran’s Day, and fans were shocked at how big Joy’s belly had gotten. “Can’t wait for that ‘premature baby’ to be born 7-8 months after the wedding!” one fan wrote, while others expressed sadness for Joy because of how quickly she got pregnant. “Poor Joy. She’s huge. How sad she didn’t get to enjoy being a young married woman with a pre-pregnancy body for very long at all,” another fan commented.

We are so thankful for the men and women who have served to defend our freedom! Grateful we got to spend the day with my grandfather who is a Army veteran. "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance." (Psalm 33:12) "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." ~Ronald Reagan
Last month, the duo posted a pic of Joy’s bump on their joint Instagram account, and they basically gave away their due date. “Can’t wait to meet our baby!!” wrote Joy. “I got to feel it kick for the first time a few days ago!!! Soooooo amazing!!! It’s already about the size of a bell pepper and weighs around half a pound!!! #childrenareagiftfromGod #westandforlife.”
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to Google how far along a woman has to be for the baby to be bell-pepper-sized and kicking. Baby Center says it would be around 18 weeks when the baby is “7 ounces and is roughly 5 1/2 inches long,” and starts “flexing his arms and legs – movements that you’ll start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead.” If Joy-Anna was 18 weeks along at the time, then the baby will be born in February 2018. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see!
Fans recently slammed Joy and Austin for their comments on animal abuse. Watch the video below for more details!
