Baby Gideon Forsyth is one lucky kid! Just one month after he made his big debut, Joy-Anna Duggar is opening up about how she "can't imagine life" without him. Not only is she revealing a few major details about what motherhood is really like, but how her husband, Austin Forsyth, is adjusting to this new life of theirs as well! Watch the video above and find out what Joy-Anna said about her little family.
And while Austin may be killing it when it comes to his daddy duties, their personal relationship is better than ever. Joy-Anna told Us Weekly, "Our relationship has grown even closer. We're working as a team and this is just another thing that we do as a team."
So not only are they raising Gideon together and tending to all of his needs, but they're also both watching him grow into a healthy little boy. Joy-Anna explained, "He is growing and changing so much every day…It's amazing the love that I have for him."
Joy-Anna recently talked about the love Austin has for Gideon as well explaining that he's happy to have a mini version of himself! She said, "I think Austin's really excited to have a baby boy because he's really wanting to have someone to take to work and to go do a lot of different hobbies. And to just teach him all the skills that Austin knows."

Austin and I are SO thankful to announce that we are parents!! Even before we were married we prayed that God would give us children and we are so blessed that he has given us this baby! Jesus is the giver of Life! The baby has arms, legs, fingers, and toes. It has a beating heart and brain waves. The baby responds to touch and is already right- or left-handed. The baby has its own unique fingerprints, which are different from anyone else's. All organ systems are in place! Psalm 139:13-16 "For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them." This passage indicates that God Himself formed our physical features and that He did so with a wonderful plan for our lives. God knew us in the womb. #babyforsyth #alreadyinlovewithmybaby #blessedbeyondmeasure #Jesusanswersprayers
The new parents welcomed Gideon on Feb. 23 after complications forced them to ditch their original home birthing plan. In a special Counting On webisode, Joy-Anna and Austin revealed that the baby was breech and after 20 hours of labor they made the decision to go to the hospital for professional help. She delivered Gideon — who weighed 10 pounds and 3 ounces at birth — via cesarean-section.
