She’s showing love to her sister-in-law. Lauren Swanson sweetly congratulated Joy-Anna Duggar on her pregnancy news after the Counting On star announced that she was expecting on Instagram. Lauren and her husband, Josiah Duggar, suffered a miscarriage back in October, so fans are sending messages of support in the comment section, telling Lauren to “stay strong.”

“Some of you have guessed, some of you had no clue … November, 2019 Baby Forsyth #2 is Due,” Joy-Anna, 21, wrote in her big reveal on May 1. “Cannot wait to meet this new little one! Gideon is going to be such a great big brother!” Several of the reality star’s family members congratulated Joy-Anna and Austin Forsyth on their bundle of joy, including Josiah’s wife.

Lauren posted a thoughtful remark from her shared Instagram page with Josiah. “Congratulations!!! So excited for y’all!!! — Lauren,” she gushed. Several of Joy-Anna’s followers rallied in support for the couple. “Your time will come, Lauren. Hang in there and stay strong. You are going to be an amazing mama some day,” one wrote. “It will happen happen for you guys. All in God’s perfect timing. Every time someone makes an announcement, I can’t help but think of you. People you don’t even know are praying for you. You and Si will be parents,” another added.

As fans may know, several of the Duggar wives are pregnant right now. Anna Duggar is expecting baby no. 6 with Josh Duggar, Kendra and Joseph Duggar are expecting baby no. 2, and Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald are expecting baby no. 3. Back in February, Jessa shared a baby bump update and opened up about how it’s been a truly bittersweet time, confessing that she feels an “exceptional amount of grief” over Lauren and Josiah’s heartbreaking loss.

“Lauren and I shared the exact same due date,” Jessa wrote in her emotional Instagram caption. “We have cried so many tears, both together and apart. My heart aches for them.” Clearly, Josiah and Lauren have an incredible support team that will help them overcome any hardship.
