The Duggar family is in hot-water again and it’s all because of a leaked email. On Feb. 3, 2018, an email from Joy-Anna Duggar‘s father-in-law, Terry Forsyth, was leaked online — and fans of the reality stars found one very important detail in the email. Rumors have been circling that Joy and husband Austin Forsyth didn’t wait until they were married to conceive their unborn child. This, of course, would be a huge no-no in the extremely religious family. But, fans might have just found proof that the couple didn’t premarital sex, but conceived the baby during their honeymoon.
“Roxeanne and I have two children: Meagan, 26, happily married with one little girl and another one on the way. Austin, 24, happily married and expecting their first child in two weeks,” he wrote in the recently uncovered email correspondence regarding their family camp, Fort Rock. Two weeks? This means that Joy will deliver her first child by the end of February. She and Austin got married on May 26, 2017. So, they either conceived their child before they were man and wife — or, the Duggars are planning their weddings around their ovulation schedules.
Announcing a pregnancy shortly after a wedding isn’t out of the ordinary for the famous family. Counting On stars Kendra Duggar and Joseph Duggar announced Kendra was expecting three months after they tied the knot as well. Plus, Jessa and Jill — who have two sons each — both announced they would be expecting a baby just three months after they were married too. So, it’s not crazy that fans might wonder if the family plans for their daughters to get pregnant during their honeymoons.
Honestly, the fact that Duggar women are only expected to get married and then have numerous children is pretty sad. Some fans worry that because of this the women feel trapped in their marriages. Some fans are still concived that Joy and Austin broke the rules — but it seems like their just following their family’s trend of honeymoon babies!
